Being in a relationship can be scary, but being in a relationship that is subject to scrutiny from the general public is even scarier. Unfortunately, this is the sad reality for most celebrities, and Hailee Steinfeld is not here for it! While many of us are dying for her to make her romance with Niall Horan official, Hailee is planning on keeping it under wraps. “Hailee’s fully into Niall, she thinks he’s sexy, talented, and super hot. She wants a serious relationship with Niall, but she’s nervous and a little scared. So, she’s taking it slow and trying to keep it super secret. She isn’t ready to make it public, she doesn’t want the pressure,” a source close to Hailee tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. Pretty understandable, right?

“She really admires what Taylor [Swift] has done this time around. How she’s kept her relationship with Joe [Alwyn] so secretive. Hailee’s trying to follow Taylor’s example and keep things with Niall top secret. But, it’s not easy because she’s really into him and when they’re together it’s hard for her to hide it,” our source continued. Now that we think of it, Taylor has done a good job at keeping her relationship with Joe pretty low-key. However, we have a feeling it’ll be a lot harder for Hailee, and not because “she’s really into him.”

As we previously told you, Niall and Hailee were spotted showing off major PDA in the Bahamas on April 18! Not only were they cuddling, but they were even kissing. So, you can understand why we think the news is bound to come out. Nevertheless, we can totally understand Hailee’s perspective, and we wish her and Niall the best!

Niall Horan, 24, told Justin Bieber, 24, that he was interested in Hailee Steinfeld, 21, months ago, and apparently, Justin gave him some incredible advice. A source close to Justin EXCLUSIVELY told us about Niall and Justin’s heart-to-heart conversation about Hailee. “Justin and Niall are closer than many people know,” our source said. “But it wasn’t until Justin popped up and surprised Niall at a show he had at an intimate Los Angeles music venue last September that their conversations began to really become more personal. Justin and Niall enjoyed a cozy dinner, and it was then that Niall broke the news to Justin that he and Hailee were talking more and more and were getting really close. Justin’s advice to Niall came directly from the heart, and after telling Niall that he was super happy for him and Hailee, Justin told Niall to always trust his heart and treat Hailee as if he wanted to build a future with her. That way, there would never be any regrets if things didn’t work out.”

Hailee and Niall were spotted kissing and packing on the PDA recently on a vacation to the Bahamas. Obviously, Justin is beyond happy for the two of them. “Justin wishes the best for his buddy and Hailee, but Justin has become much more of a realist in recent months when it comes to his relationships,” our source added. “And he’s very ‘we’ll see where the wind blows’ with it all because after experiencing so many different feelings for different women, Justin doesn’t really know what the cards hold for him in terms of his love life.”

When it comes down to it, Justin is not ruling out love. “He’s taking everything as it comes,” our source added. And how did Niall take Justin’s advice? Our source went on to say, “Niall appreciated Justin’s honest opinion and vowed to stay true to himself, his music and his lady.”

Niall and Hailee have been teasing fans with their ‘are-they-aren’t-they?’ relationship for months, and now it seems they most definitely are.

While they appeared to confirm their relationship by attending a big golf tournament together, the couple have now apparently been spotted sucking face in the middle of a bar with people actual watching and thus seemingly eliminating the question mark.

The couple are currently on a rather indulgent holiday on a super yacht in the Exuma islands in the Bahamas.

In pics snapped by excited fans, who happened to be in the bar the couple chose to drink in, Niall can be seen with his arm around Hailee and later leaning in for a kiss.

After hanging out at the Staniel Cay Yacht Club and having a few bevvies, 21-year-old Hailee was whisked back to their yacht by her boyfriend (yep we’re labelling it, even if they haven’t yet), which was moored out at sea.

One onlooker said they looked ‘really loved up’. ‘They were chatting away for ages and then Niall put his arm around Hailee’s neck and kissed her on the cheek.’

Earlier in the day they allegedly visited Pig Beach (which, as it sounds, is a beach full of actual pigs) and then continued their romantic getaway by sailing on to Nassau the next day. The couple weren’t totally alone on their trip, as golfer Justin Rose was said to have holidayed with them.

Hailee Steinfeld has gone along to the US Masters golf tournament with Niall Horan and quite frankly that sounds like a very girlfriendy kind of thing to do. It’s his favourite sport, and is a four day event, so in our eyes that’s pretty much confirmation these two are loved up.

Rumours have swirled for a while that Niall and Hailee have been dating, but it looks like the might finally have confirmed it with this outing.

Hailee accompanied Niall to the US Masters golf tournament and reportedly stayed in the same house as him in Augusta, Georgia during the four-day event, according to Mail On Sunday.

It was previously revealed they were ‘casually’ dating, but things might have got serious if they’re now having trips away to enjoy Niall’s favourite sport together. Sounds like a pretty couply thing to do.

According to the Mail on Sunday newspaper, Hailee, 21, Niall, 24, and his professional player friend Thomas Bjorn all shared the house.

A source said recently: ‘It’s true that Hailee and Niall are dating, but at this point it’s still pretty casual.’

They have had weekends away before, reportedly taking in Las Vegas in February where they saw Backstreet Boys perform and later seeing Diplo’s DJ set. And she was spotted wearing his t-shirt at one of his gigs, like the nice, supportive girlfriend she may well be.

Hailee Steinfeld has continued to fan rumours that she is dating former One Direction’s Niall Horan after she posed in his tour t-shirt in a Twitter post.

There are many ways to confirm, or hint, to a romance and this is apparently one of them – it clearly has the rumour mill spinning.

The Pitch Perfect star looked the president of his fan club as she gave away the biggest hint to date the two were an item and fans were quick to celebrate the apparent occasion.

She captioned the photo “51.4613° N, 0.1156° W, which according to our geographical experts, points to Brixton, South London, where Niall performed to a sell-out crowd at the O2 Academy on Thursday night.

And one glimpse at the comments section proved the fans shipped the potential romance.

The singer is currently on a world tour for his debut solo album Flicker, while Hailee continues to work on her own music career. Rumours of their romance first started flying around when Niall posted a sweet birthday message for Haliee on Instagram this year.

Hailee Steinfeld’s character in the Pitch Perfect series isn’t a stretch, at least talent-wise. Steinfeld is a legit triple threat. She has an Oscar nomination under her belt, is wrapping up her debut album after several successful singles, and she can dance. With all that skill comes a demanding schedule, so Steinfeld’s nailed her travel routine down to a science. We sat down with her before her performance for Kellogg’s national cereal day to hear all her time-saving tips, how she winds down, and the self-realization that inspired her song “Love Myself.”

Her go-to quick breakfast: “I like Special K topped with a banana. That’s what I have when I’m on the road and on tour. And then when I feel like splurging, Frosted Flakes, Froot Loops, and Rice Krispies are my favorites.”

Why she isn’t a morning workout person: “I’ve recently tried to start working out in the morning so it’s over with and I can go on with my day, but I just can’t do it. I go at night when the day is done. I wash my makeup off, I go to the gym, I’m done. It’s kind of my way of winding down. I find that I sleep better.”

How she stays fit on the road: “My workout routine changes all the time based on where I am and what I have access to. I’ll travel with resistance bands and a jump rope in my bag so that I don’t necessarily need a gym. But when I’m in a hotel, that’s where you can find me.”

Her wellness bucket list: “I’ve heard a lot about infrared saunas and cryotherapy. I have a couple of friends who are into them, but I have yet to try them myself. With my schedule the whole class thing is hard but I’m really curious. I’ve never tried SoulCycle and that’s what I want to try next because I feel like you’re in there and there’s music playing and you’re going.”

Her speedy beauty routine: “I spend a lot of time on YouTube watching five-minute tutorials to try to get quicker with my ‘gotta get out the door’ look. But honestly I let my hair air dry and use some dry texture spray for a little somethin’ somethin’. When it comes to makeup, if I’m in a rush or want a simple everyday look, I moisturize and wear a little foundation, concealer, and mascara.”

Her view on body confidence: “I think nowadays it’s easy to look for validation in all the wrong places. I’m guilty of it. But I do feel like I’ve realized ‘this is who I am and this is my body and I can try to change it, but this is what I’ve got and should be proud of it. That’s why I wrote ‘Love Myself.'”

Hailee Steinfeld is on a roll right now.

With three consecutive hits in the past year in “Starving,” “Let Me Go” and “Most Girls,” Steinfeld has taken her platform as a beloved actress in films like “Edge of Seventeen” and the “Pitch Perfect” franchise and turned it into genuine pop music stardom. And, with her debut album on the way, she shows no signs of slowing down.

Ahead of her performance at the Kellogg’s NYC space in Union Square, AOL Entertainment sat down with Steinfeld to talk about her upcoming album, the reason behind her one-off single releases and reflecting on her Oscar nomination for “True Grit” seven years ago at Sunday’s Vanity Fair Oscars party.

Check out our full conversation with Hailee Steinfeld below:

You’re performing at Kellogg’s NYC on “National Cereal Day Eve,” which has to be one of the more unique performance opportunities you’ve had in recent memory.
Oh, yeah! Totally. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a very big fan of cereal, and to be here performing in this incredible space is amazing. I have a feeling if I weren’t performing, I would be here anyway celebrating as a tourist because where else would you want to be on National Cereal Day? This would be my spot.

In the past year or so, you’ve had three massive hits back-to-back-to-back: “Starving,” “Let Me Go” and “Most Girls.” Do you feel like you’re on a roll?
It’s crazy, really. It’s so exciting how the music thing has been working for me. To have one after another like that is not easy, and I owe a lot to my fans and my label. Mentally, I do feel like I’m on a roll, and I’m working on my album right now. With the EP and the last few singles, they’ve brought me all over the world, and I can’t wait to see where this album takes me.

Do you feel pressure to follow up one hit with another?
There is that sort of — if you want to call it “pressure” — in the way back of my mind, and it’s an obvious conversation of, “What are we going to follow this up with?” But I honestly feel like you can never go wrong with following something up with something else that means something to you. At the end of the day, if it doesn’t necessarily resonate with other people, it still meant something to you, and I always think that that’s the most important.

You’ve been releasing your singles mostly as one-offs, instead of songs that are part of albums or longer projects. Was that a conscious decision? That strategy seems to work for a lot of artists in this streaming-centric landscape.
It was sort of [conscious], but also I would go away for three months and make a movie and couldn’t commit myself to an album at that time or to more than one song at that time. Luckily, my fans are great and patient and loyal enough to live with one single for as long as they have. (more…)

Don’t pick a fight with Hailee Steinfeld. Just don’t. The Pitch Perfect 3 star may be known for being both an actress and singer, but she quickly hit triple-threat status — in the most literal sense of the word — after posting a video of herself going all Rocky Balboa on a speedbag.

“I posted that video and got more texts from my friends than anything else I’ve posted,” she laughs. “Everyone was like, ‘Are you actually doing that?'”

Yes, yes, she was. Her dad taught her how to kickbox as a kid, and it’s a skill she’s quietly honed ever since. “It took me so long to get it right, but now, I’ve been doing it for so long that I didn’t think anything of it,” Steinfeld explains.

It’s a good way to counterbalance her favorite snack — cereal — which the star says she rarely goes six hours without grabbing. “Frosted Flakes is my current favorite, though it changes so often,” Steinfeld says, adding that she’s recently gotten into mixing Frosted Flakes with Frosted Mini Wheats. The “Capital Letters” singer is spending the afternoon at the Kellogg’s Cafe as she gears up to headline a concert there in honor of National Cereal Day.

Before Steinfeld took the stage, she stopped to talk about how she stays fit on the road, the truck-stop foods she can’t turn down (ever), and why her dad’s the best motivational coach she knows.

She Doesn’t Deny Her Cravings
Steinfeld goes after what she wants, whether it’s on stage or in the fridge. For breakfast, she’ll typically grab a bowl of cereal. For lunch, she’s big on burgers, pasta, or grilled chicken with rice, and when it comes to dinner, she loves to go for breakfast, round two.

“Scrambled eggs, pancakes, what else? I love it all,” she says. “You know what the best thing in the world is? French toast with corn flakes. I had them in New York, I wish I could remember where, and it’s French toast coated in corn flakes. It’s kind of insane.”

She Always Keeps Peanut Butter On Hand
When it comes to a quick pick-me-up snack, Steinfeld chooses a little peanut butter for a protein boost that’ll keep her feeling full longer than a candy bar or popcorn. Just don’t hand her any of that crunchy stuff. “Creamy all the way,” she says.

She Swears By A 15-Minute Rule
Steinfeld makes it a point to exercise at least 15 minutes a day, every day, no matter where she is. “It keeps my head clear and keeps me in check,” she explains. “My dad’s a personal fitness trainer, and he really helps me create a workout in the space that I’m in, wherever I am. I travel with resistance bands, so I’ll jump rope and do a combination of movements [to stay toned].”

Just don’t think that means she’s always psyched to work out.

“More often than not, I don’t feel like working out, actually,” Steinfeld admits. “My dad’s so incredible. He’s the best advice-giver, and his discipline and drive inspires me.”

Often, he’ll text her in the mornings to help her stay motivated.

“He’ll say things like, ‘Believe in yourself,’ ‘stay true to yourself,’ ‘drink a lot of water,’ and even typical dad stuff,” Steinfeld says.

Yesterday she was in LA, recovering from a glam red carpet night at Vanity Fair’s Oscar’s Party. This morning she’s posted up in NYC, prepping to host and perform at this year’s National Cereal Day extravaganza with Kellog’s.

Hailee Steinfeld is an icon of this generation, evident by the success we’ve seen in record hits, acclaimed films and killer fashion. We caught up with the 21-year-old at NYC’s Kellog’s Cafe to hear about her touring life, ideal cereal combo and the weirdest backstage request she has.

Your dad is a personal fitness trainer. Did he ever let you have sugary cereals?
He could not have stopped me if he tried. My dad obviously promotes healthy eating. But growing up, I was never not allowed to have certain things. He has his fair share of cheat days as well — and cereal is included in them.

What would be your ideal cereal combo?
This kind of happened by mistake. I was at an airport and there were a bunch of little [cereal] boxes, so I kind of just got a bunch of them and put them all in one because I was really hungry. And I found that Frosted MiniWheats and Frosted Flakes make a great combo.

Interesting, with milk?
With milk. Great combo.

So you’ve grown up in the spotlight. How would you say your style has changed over the years?
Well, I think it’s sort of constantly evolving as I grow up and mature and find different fashion inspirations. I think through travel and friends, of course, I learn of trends. But I think it’s really ever changing, really.

How about your diet or workout routine?
Well, I care a lot more now than I did 5 years ago! I think my workout routine is always changing — it’s based on where I am and what I have access to. But, that’s sort of what I love about traveling. I’m always kind of changing it up, working with what’s around me and making something from nothing. My dad definitely helps me with that.

But, for diet, I think I am inspired by traveling the world and being in new places and trying new things and foods is something that has changed in the last couple of years.

Where would you say has been the most influential?
I had no problem in Italy. I don’t eat sushi, but I’m getting into it. I dream of the day I am in Tokyo, eating sushi with friends. That’s going to be a really good day. But I’m not there yet. I haven’t acquired the taste just yet. I’ve got to ease in. And I have so many friends that have me convinced my social life will change when I eat sushi.

Any weird backstage food requests you have?
Nothing too weird. Although I do have turkey on there to make bread. The rest on the list is stuff to make sandwiches like bread, avocado and mayo. Like everything you need to make a sandwich.

Well, I had a show in the Philippines once, and I was in a tent-like dressing room. And there was this table with the tea and the bread and avocado. And there was this thing with a sheet over it. I was in there, doing my vocal warmups.

I went and did the show and I came back and was like ‘what is under that?’. So my mom lifts the sheet off and finds a frozen turkey, like a Thanksgiving-day turkey on the table. So that [request] is going to need to be written more specifically.

What is the hardest part about being on the road constantly?
Living on the bus is one thing that isn’t easy to get used to. That and traveling through time zones. It’s hard staying in touch with your loved ones. Weeks go by before you realize you haven’t talked to people. FaceTime has saved my life, time and time again.
