Fans are heavily speculating that Hailee Steinfeld and Niall Horan have broken up.

Rumors began in the fall when they noticed the couple was rarely photographed together, but they gained traction in November when the “Bumblebee” star was seen with her ex-boyfriend, Cameron Smoller. The former couple appeared in an Instagram story video of a Republic Records party, which was then circulated on Twitter.

There also have been reports that the former One Direction crooner has joined the exclusive dating app Raya, which is described as the “Tinder for celebrities.”

Steinfeld turned 22 on Tuesday, but unlike last year, Horan failed to give her a social media shoutout. In fact, the “True Grit” star unfollowed Horan on Instagram. He, however, still follows her.

The perhaps-former couple confirmed their relationship when they were spotted kissing at BBC Music’s Biggest Weekend in May.

Reps for Steinfeld and Horan didn’t immediately return our request for comment.

Hailee Steinfeld felt “a little depressed” when she first moved to New York City.

The 22-year-old actress made the move to the Big Apple on her own last year, and has said that at times, being alone in a large city made her feel down, despite the other part of her knowing that the move was “awesome”.

She said: “I’ve never had this opportunity of living alone in a new city. I was feeling my way around, and feeling comfortable with that … Part of me was a little depressed, and the other part of me was like, this is awesome.”

The ‘Bumblebee’ star celebrates her 22nd birthday on Tuesday (11.12.18), and says she doesn’t have any “specific feelings” about becoming another year older, although she does think 2019 will be “the best year” of her life.

Speaking to Who What Wear magazine’s December issue, she added: “I don’t have any specific feeling about it. Twenty-one taught me a lot about myself. I do feel like I’m heading into the best year of my life … I feel like I have so much in me right now, and I want to keep going and going. And I will.”

Meanwhile, Hailee – who is believed to be romancing One Direction singer Niall Horan – recently said she feels “very fortunate” to have supportive family and friends who are always around to “protect” her, especially from the dangers of Hollywood.

She said: “I think that I had so much incredible support from everyone around me when I was very young. I have had so many people around me to look out for me and protect me. Of course, any territory and any field of work there are inner and outer obstacles, and things you have to go through. I have been very fortunate to have the support of the people around me.”

There are some early-20s milestones that feel cliché enough to fall right into a rom-com: move to a big city, live alone for the first time, spend a night on the town making friends out of strangers. Unless you’re Hailee Steinfeld, though, that timeframe won’t likely include touring with Katy Perry and Charlie Puth or heading to Spain for 24 hours for the MTV EMAs, too. In 2018, of course, Steinfeld can check off all the above—relatable or otherwise—but what I want to know is what’s next for the young star.

“In the New Year, taking time off is important,” Steinfeld tells me shortly into our conversation. It’s a chilly Saturday morning in November, fresh off the first snow of the season, but we’ve found a cozy booth in the restaurant of The Williamsburg Hotel. The actress arrives for our interview wearing faded jeans and a pastel blue thermal, a far cry from the glitter-covered neon looks she wore in Spain. In about an hour, she’ll be decked out in after-hours attire for our December cover shoot, but for now, the multi-hyphenate is makeup-free, hair still wet from the shower, and comfortably settling into the corner of the booth, where she sits with her feet tucked up—sometimes one, sometimes both.

Steinfeld seems to reserve the slightly perched stance for when she speaks about things that excite her most, like performing live on stage for her fans. But those who track Steinfeld’s moves closely—like her nearly 11 million Instagram followers—might say the enthusiastic posture is fitting more generally, given how many exciting projects she has through the end of the year. First, she’s currently filming a TV show (more on that later). Then, it’s the December 14 release of the already critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, an animated feature for which Steinfeld voices Gwen Stacy.
Finally, it’s Bumblebee, a Transformers prequel, out in theaters December 21. In her second holiday season film debut, the actress portrays Charlie Watson, a somewhat similar lead role to the coming-of-age characters she’s played for most of her career. Think Emily in the second installment of the Pitch Perfect trilogy, who we meet as an awkward, songwriting legacy Barden Bella. Or the quick-witted, hyperbolic, quietly (sometimes not-so-quietly) grieving Nadine in The Edge of Seventeen, a performance that nabbed Steinfeld a Golden Globe nomination.

“There was something about this character,” the actress says of Bumblebee’s Watson, “that I felt was lost but still independent. She’s launched into this world of people she feels don’t see or hear her. Being seen and heard is so important, especially today.”

If you’ve ever listened to Steinfeld’s music, such a sentiment should come as no surprise. Where her onscreen personas have often represented women developing their voices on the brink of adulthood—“It’s just me projecting,” Steinfeld jokes of how her life has
sometimes paralleled her scripted work—her music has been a vehicle for communicating with confidence, the most obvious example being “Love Myself.” (more…)

Paramount Pictures will show Hailee Steinfeld’s “Bumblebee” on Dec. 8 in North America — 13 days before the “Transformers” spinoff opens.

The studio announced the screenings Wednesday, two days after Amazon and Atom Tickets said they were offering Amazon Prime members an exclusive early showing of Warner Bros.’ “Aquaman” on Dec. 15. “Aquaman” is opening opposite “Bumblebee” on Dec. 21. Disney is opening “Mary Poppins Returns” two days earlier.

Customers who buy a ticket to the early screenings of “Bumblebee” will also receive a Transformers: Tiny Turbo Changers Movie Toy from Hasbro. Showtimes will be at 7 p.m.

Studios have been opting to go early on major titles during the past year. Amazon, Atom Tickets, and Sony teamed last December on early showings of “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” and generated $1.9 million domestically. Warner Bros.’ recently generated $1.8 million from early showings of “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” on the Tuesday and Wednesday (Nov. 13 and 14) at 600 venues before the film went into wide release.

“Bumblebee” is set in 1987 in a beach town, where Steinfeld’s character discovers a battle-scarred and broken yellow Volkswagen and revives him. The film also stars John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, Pamela Adlon, and Stephen Schneider.

“Bumblebee” is the sixth installment of the Transformers franchise, which has grossed $4.3 billion worldwide since the first film in 2007. It’s directed by Travis Knight and written by Christina Hodson.

Hailee Steinfeld didn’t really come out of left field but it feels like if you only started to notice her when she was in the remake of True Grit. No matter what anyone says about the film it’s agreed that she put in a great performance and made the part of Mattie feel uniquely real. But that’s the kind of skill she displays on a regular basis as she’s able to dive into her roles as much as possible and really make a person believe that she is that character. Even better is that in each film she’s in there’s a distinct feeling that she’s so into the character that there’s little if any real overlap between that current role and any other she’s done. In most of her movies you could say there are similarities, but overall she’s able to bring new and exciting characters to life without having to fall back on her other roles as much.

Here are some of her best movies to date.

5. Ender’s Game
Having kids fight a war sounds horrific, but given that this entire movie feels like one giant video game and starting people out at a young age seems to be the theme, it becomes a very real test of whether they can take the emotional stress that comes with the physical stress that they’re put through continually. The only problem with fighting and enemy that looms as a threat to your world and your existence however is that sooner or later you become the monster, while the enemy becomes the assaulted victim that is struggling to survive. Ender is a gifted tactician, but his sense of morality is still developing.

4. Pitch Perfect 2
You can imagine how tough it is to belong to a specialized group of singers when you’re in high school, but in college it would be even more difficult since the standards go up and the judging is done by your peers rather than by teachers and music instructors. This is the kind of group where a mistake isn’t really accepted and doing anything subpar is not allowed. In that vein it seems that those that aren’t able to sync with the group in one way or another are bound to be sent down the road without so much as a ‘buh-bye’. College is after all where dreams are built up and then dashed apart for people to do with as they will.

3. True Grit
Opinions about this movie were kind of divided since a lot of people were still in love with the version that was given by John Wayne back in the day. In this movie however Hailee presented herself as a very talented actress as Mattie was a very direct and to the point individual that wouldn’t always take no for an answer and was all about getting business done. The bad part was that she wasn’t really geared for the wilds and wasn’t much help to the two men that were reluctant to have her come along in the first place. In fact it’s safe to say that she was more of a distraction than anything throughout the trip.

2. Bumblebee
Admittedly this movie hasn’t come out yet but from the trailers so far it looks like something that might be a kind of hail Mary for the Transformers franchise to make a comeback from the pit that’s been dug for it lately. Bumblebee is after all one of the favorite characters in the story and rumors about a solo movie were kicking around for a while before someone finally decided to do something about it. Just being in the film is enough to bring another light upon Hailee’s career since unlike Shia LaBeouf there’s a good chance that she won’t be yelling every other scene when stuff starts to happen. Even if she did it would be more entertaining.

1. Edge of Seventeen
A lot of us can remember what it was like when we were seventeen years old. Even if we were having a good time in school and were popular there was always bound to be one or more issues that we had to deal with at times. If we weren’t popular however then life seemed to slow to a debilitating crawl as we tried to navigate the halls of high school and life, struggling to find any purchase that we could use to rest a while and prolong the agony. It was a tough time in some cases but it was always meant to be a time of learning, of fun, and of discovery about a great many things that we never knew about. High school was a time to expand our personal world and gain the experience we needed.

She’s got a bright future yet ahead, and so far it looks very promising.

Falling in love can be intoxicating, terrifying, and feel like an emotional roller coaster. But budding superstar Hailee Steinfeld, in full-blown heart-emoji heaven for the first time, can’t wait for the ride.

Hailee doesn’t want to talk about her boyfriend. But the 21-year-old Oscar nominee, pop singer, and former Swift Squad regular is more than willing to use the L-word. A lot.

“When you fall in love,” she tells Cosmo, “you pick up on the tiniest things about yourself. I am one to spread out on the mattress and take up every inch of space. Now I don’t want to do that anymore. I want to make as much room for you as possible.”

“You start doing things for this person and going out of your way to make them happy.”

By now, it’s safe to assume the “you” she’s talking about is Niall Horan. Photos of Hailee smooching the former One Directioner have gone viral online, and the two have left juicy crumbs for fans—Hailee sporting a T-shirt with Niall’s face on it; Niall extolling her awesomeness on Twitter.

Her newest song, “Used to This”—one she wrote and debuted on tour with Charlie Puth this summer—is about sharing breakfast and lying in bed with someone. (Niall recently told Cosmo that he’s a “fantastic cuddler,” so Hailee may not want to make too much room on that mattress.)

“You start doing things for this person and going out of your way to make them happy,” she says about falling deep for the very first time. “And when you see them happy, it makes you happier. When you love who you are with that person…there’s nothing that compares.”

Well, maybe a few things could compare. Like being catapulted to fame at 14, after a mind-bendingly mature performance in 2010’s True Grit. Like costarring with Hollywood heavy hitters such as Woody Harrelson and Viola Davis. Like walking the red carpet at the Met Gala, dripping in diamonds, and having front-row seats at New York Fashion Week.

“I realized, I’m not going to stay here and feel ­uncomfortable just to fit in.”

And like carrying her own Transformers blockbuster, Bumblebee, out December 21. (Hailee will also have a role in December’s animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and play Emily Dickinson in Apple’s upcoming show about the beloved poet.) (more…)
