Hailee Steinfeld attended the premiere of Romeo & Juliet at the ArcLight Hollywood on Tuesday (September 24). Other stars who attended were her co-stars Douglas Booth, Ed Westwick, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Tomas Arana, and Nathalie Rapti Gomez – as well as her BFF Taylor Swift and Bailee Madison.
The 16-year-old told Variety on the red carpet, “You kind of have to take it as any other role because I feel like, if I made it a thing that I was a part of re-making this classic or playing this iconic role, I would sort of lose sight of the work. So I was able to read it on a clean slate and go into it and just sort if immerse myself in the entire world.”
In another interview – Steinfeld revealed how she first met the I Knew You Were Trouble singer.
She said, “We met, oh my gosh, like three years ago through our mutual friend Emma Stone.”
Asked if the two gossip about boys she replied, “Oh yeah, of course. What else is there to talk about?”
On Thursday (September 26) the actress also tweeted a photo of herself on the cover of ASOS. Next up? Her next project will be with Vince Vaugh in Term Life.
