Around this time of year, most 20 year-olds are gearing up for spring break. Hailee Steinfeld, however, is not a typical 20 year-old. While many of her peers are taking off to Mexico, the multi-hyphenate star is in the midst of filming Pitch Perfect 3, and balancing her pop music career. Should she ever need a beach vacation–or rather, have time for one–the actress is not lacking in the proper footwear department: Steinfeld was just named the face of REEF sandals. Here, the actress and singer shares her top warm weather travel tips, as well has her upcoming summer plans, and the eternal debate of to Coachella or not to Coachella.
What is your favorite warm weather vacation destination?
I was recently in Barbados for a job and I definitely hope to go back soon. The weather was perfect, the people were inviting, and the food was amazing.
What is your favorite mode of travel?
I happen to love driving. There’s something about hopping in your car that gives off a choose your own adventure vibe. It’s more on your own terms than other forms of transportation and I love an opportunity to be spontaneous. I do also love flying because I can catch up on movies and sleep.
Who is the best person you’ve ever been seated next to on a plane?
I love sitting next to my mom whenever I’m traveling. We laugh ourselves to sleep pretty much every flight.
What do you always pack for a day at the beach?
My headphones, a gigantic bottle of water, plenty of sunscreen, a comfy blanket, and my REEF Escapes.
What is your current beach read?
I wish I could say I was currently reading a book but I find that when I do have downtime to read, I’m catching up on scripts or reading the latest breaking news online.
Are you planning to attend any musical festivals this season?
I hope to be attending Coachella this year but it will all depend on my work schedule. I remain hopeful because some of my favorite acts are performing…
What is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled?
There are too many to choose. Paris and Tokyo both have special places in my heart for different reasons but I also know there are so many places I haven’t even yet gotten to visit. I’m so lucky that my job takes me all over the world. It’s surreal.
What is on the top of your vacation bucket list?
Great question. I’m currently trying to figure out where my next vacation will be. Tulum seems to keep resurfacing…
What is the best souvenir you’ve ever picked up on a trip?
I can’t pinpoint just one. Whenever I’m visiting a new place I always try to grab something that will always remind me of the trip. I’ve got a great collection of memories that includes even the smallest items like match books or postcards.
“Pitch Perfect 3” is actress Hailee Steinfeld’s latest project and probably one of her tickets to her current popularity. In the musical film, she portrays Emily Junk, the daughter of a former Bella, Katherine Junk, making her a “Legacy Bella.”
During her recent visit to New York, the 20-year-old American actress opened up about her wardrobe for the upcoming “Pitch Perfect 3.” Speaking to FN, Steinfeld said her character has changed and developed in two years’ time.
“We’ve had a great time finding her [Emily Junk] cool and her style, even though it’s a little quirky,” Steinfeld said. “[Emily] is still the young, fresh one in the group, and you can see that especially in her clothes.”
In a separate interview, Hailee Steinfeld also shared what viewers can expect from “Pitch Perfect 3.” Aside from the wide range of acapella, the highly anticipated sequel will also feature tons of dance moves.
“I’m in the middle of it now and it’s going great,” Steinfeld told The Daily Front Row. “We’re at the halfway mark now and it’s awesome. The choreography is amazing. The music is so fun and it’s a great storyline. It’s going to be a good one!”
“Pitch Perfect 3” will see Anna Kendrick as Beca Mitchell, Mitchell Rebel Wilson as Patricia “Fat Amy, Hailee Steinfeld as Emily Junk, Brittany Snow as Chloe Beale, Elizabeth Banks as Gail John and Michael Higgins as John Smith. The upcoming sequel will also see rapper Trinidad James as an individual from a contending singing group and “The Accountant” actor John Lithgow in a top-secret role.
Directed by Trish Sie, “Pitch Perfect 3” is scheduled to be released on Dec. 22.
