Bills Mafia’s royal wedding: Are Hailee Steinfeld and Josh Allen secretly engaged?

A keen-eyed user spotted what they believed to be an engagement ring on Hailee’s left hand. “Wait, is that a ring on Hailee’s left hand?” the user shared.

The rumor mill went into overdrive, with some fans discussing the dynamics between Hailee, Josh, and Allen’s ex, Brittany Williams, with some of them describing the situation “jarring.”

“Josh and Hailee have been together for a while now. It’s not really “new” anymore. I don’t get the feeling Brittany is mad at them. It’s a weird situation for some of the wags to be in and probably no good reason to give Hailee the cold shoulder,” analized one Redditor.

However, questions arose about whether Williams’ friends might have reservations about hanging out with Steinfeld. “His psycho ex Britt will flip that Hailee is hanging with Summer (Jurazsek),” one asserted, while someone else doubled on it: “That was my first thought. Britt will flip when she sees Summer hanging with Hailee.”

Despite privacy concerns expressed by Josh Allen in the past, the couple has been low-key since the season began, avoiding paparazzi attention. Fans have eagerly speculated about potential marriage plans, fueling rumors about an impending engagement.

Celebrity gossip source Deuxmoi recently added fuel to the fire, predicting that Josh Allen and Hailee Steinfeld could be one of the celebrity couples getting engaged in 2024.

Hailee Steinfeld on Writing the ‘Second Half’ of Her Story, and Anderson .Paak Collaboration

When Hailee Steinfeld released her second EP, Half Written Story, in 2020, it was only one part of the story she was meant to tell. Following a more reflective period during the pandemic, the singer, songwriter, and actress began writing a collection of songs entering a new era of her life—more confident and less angsty, all starting with the easy breezier “Coast,” co-written and recorded with Anderson .Paak.

“I had this idea that I should get into this bigger picture project that I have been dreaming of making,” Steinfeld tells American Songwriter. “On ‘Half Written Story,’ I got off my chest what I needed to, which was a range of emotions from being angry and very emotional and frustrated and sad, which I had been feeling for a while. Then, I got into this other world, and ‘Coast’ was the first song that came about.”

Working with Canadian producer Koz, known for his work on Dua Lipa’s 2020 release Future Nostalgia, Steinfeld enters a more lightened scene on “Coast.” Also co-written with Mikky Ekko and Gabe Simon, “Coast” emits more dopamine highs and sunnier (California) days—You’re the wave upon the ocean / Poundin’ rhythm and motion / It’s a full moon kind of night / I don’t wanna go home yet / You can question my devotion / Wear my heart on my shoulder / Just relax and let the riptide pull you close … Parties in LA feel like holidays / Hit the PCH and we on the way.

“It’s one thing to write the music and be in a room with incredible people and feel like you’ve got to put it out into the world to take on a life of its own,” says Steinfeld, of songwriting now. “It’s out of my head and into yours. There’s a whole new life beyond what my original connection to the song is, but after putting those songs out [‘Half Written Story’], I wanted to create this world full of creativity and freedom.”

Holed up during the pandemic, Steinfeld began crafting her new world of songs, including “Coast,” which she initially began working on in her makeshift home studio before rerecording at EastWest Studios in Los Angeles, where The Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds.

Hailee Steinfeld on Her Anderson .Paak Collaboration “Coast” and How She’s “Building Out a World” with New Music

From the first notes of “Coast,” Hailee Steinfeld‘s latest single, we are beachside, beer in hand, with waves crashing distantly ahead, the golden sun slowly inching toward the horizon. It could be Malibu, or it could be any other location that this feeling calls to mind. Though for Steinfeld, who was born and raised in Southern California, it almost certainly is Los Angeles, the song a conduit for the nostalgic, delightfully chill energy of the west coast.

It wasn’t enough for Steinfeld to take “Coast” solo; she brought along fellow SoCal extraordinaire Anderson .Paak to give the song yet another dopamine boost, and Paak, as always, delivers. But “Coast” definitely marks a new era for the singer, songwriter, and A-list actress. After her second EP, Half Written Story, came out in May 2020 — her first release since her 2015 debut — Steinfeld knew it was time to change things up from the EP’s vulnerable, heart-on-her-sleeve approach.

“I didn’t want to live in that space anymore of feeling confused, sad, frustrated and, you know, maybe a little angry,” she tells Consequence. “I wanted to feel good, I did feel good. And I wanted to make music that felt good.”

In between releasing Half Written Story in 2020 and “Coast” back in July, Steinfeld kept busy with her various TV and film projects — perhaps most notably her role in Disney+’s Hawkeye series, where she plays the smart, athletic, and hilarious archer Kate Bishop. But in all the various cinematic worlds that Steinfeld finds herself in, she’s the most eager to explore her own. “Coast” is set to be the lead single for what Steinfeld calls a new “body of work,” a new collection of music that she constructed throughout the pandemic with esteemed producer Koz, known for his work on Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia.

Though “Coast” was initially recorded in Steinfeld’s makeshift studio in her Los Angeles home, she took the song to EastWest Studios to re-record it, and ended up working in the same room that The Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds in. “I would just sit there and think ‘what the hell was Brian Wilson saying to everybody in this moment, right now? What were they talking about? What were they fighting about?’,” says Steinfeld. The Beach Boys and their California jams certainly loom large in Steinfeld’s new project, and their signature idyllic energy is exactly what she’s looking to recreate.

Consequence recently sat down with Hailee Steinfeld to discuss “Coast,” writing and recording new music during the pandemic, her sonic inspirations, and what this new direction means for her music. Check out the full Q&A below. Continue reading “Hailee Steinfeld on Her Anderson .Paak Collaboration “Coast” and How She’s “Building Out a World” with New Music”

Hailee Steinfeld Says New Song ‘Coast’ Is a ‘Taste of What’s to Come’: ‘Been a Long Time Coming’

Between Hailee Steinfeld’s multi-faceted career, finding what keeps her balanced in her everyday life is of the utmost importance.

Speaking to PEOPLE about her involvement in Core Hydration’s Find Your Balance campaign, the singer and actress says that balance is a “huge part” of her life.

“That is something I am actively trying to do between my professional life, my personal life, and combining both of them,” Steinfeld, 25, says. “Finding balance has been really a huge priority for me for a long time, especially in the last few years with the accumulation of everything. Having two shows, working on my music.”

To Steinfeld, strategies for maintaining balance in her everyday life vary — though there are a few she knows will never fail her.

“What I love about the act of finding your balance [is] it doesn’t necessarily have to be one specific thing. I find going for a walk, something as simple as being in nature, meditating, [and] following guided meditations [works] — I love working out, working out is a huge part of my life.”

She continues, “My dad is my personal trainer, one of the best if I do say so myself. And that time for me has become about walking out, feeling stronger mentally and physically.”

In some cases, Steinfeld also finds that calm within her hours at work.

“I really do feel though my work life can be very hectic at times, when I’m in a studio, I feel [at] peace. I feel a sense of balance and calmness through it all. I get to walk into a space and feel free and creative and that’s a huge place that I feel I find my balance.” Continue reading “Hailee Steinfeld Says New Song ‘Coast’ Is a ‘Taste of What’s to Come’: ‘Been a Long Time Coming’”

Hailee Steinfeld’s Dickinson to End with Season 3

Dickinson will end with its upcoming third season.

The Hailee Steinfeld-led comedy will return to Apple TV+ for its final season on Nov. 5, with the series finale set for Dec. 24, the streaming service announced Thursday.

Toby Huss, Adrian Blake Enscoe, Anna Baryshnikov, Ella Hunt, Amanda Warren, Chinaza Uche, Jane Krakowski and Wiz Khalifa will be returning alongside Steinfeld in the 10-episode season. Zosia Mamet and Will Pullen will also return as guest stars, and new guest stars include Ziwe as Sojourner Truth, Billy Eichner as Walt Whitman and Chloe Fineman as Sylvia Plath

In a new teaser for the third season, Emily Dickinson (Steinfeld) wants to leave a lasting legacy.

“Us mortals, we only live for a short time,” she says in a voiceover. “I want to do something that matters. It’s bigger than fame.”

“I believe poetry can be powerful,” Emily tells Death, played by Khalifa, in another scene. “Even more powerful than you.”

Season 3 will see Emily’s artistry fall as the American Civil War rages on. She also endures an equally fierce personal battle that divides her own family. “As Emily tries to heal the divides around her, she wonders if art can help keep hope alive, and whether the future can be better than the past,” a description teases.

Dickinson’s third and final season premieres Nov. 5 on Apple TV+.

Hailee Steinfeld Talks Marvel’s ‘Hawkeye,’ “Wrong Direction,” Privé Revaux, and How She’s Juggling It All

Hailee Steinfeld is really busy. The Oscar nominee/Billboard Music Award winner/Peabody winner/executive producer has a plate packed with projects, but in the face of this last unpredictable year—a chance to “slow down and really focus on what matters,” in her own words—things changed…sorta. Hailee’s version of “slowing down” is full of self care, including but not limited to:

  • cooking with her fam;
  • watching TV, especially her current favorite Marvel character Wanda (sorry Hawkeye);
  • driving around aimlessly;
  • and trying to fit in a solid 7-8 hours of sleep.
  • This list might sound a lot like your own—relatable, even!—if it weren’t for the additional list Hailee took on, including but not limited to:

  • dropping an entire catalog of new music with her EP Half Written Story;
  • debuting season two of Dickinson, which she leads;
  • creating and releasing a line of bikinis with Frankie’s;
  • and working with Privé Revaux, the glasses brand she co-founded.
  • And oh, right, don’t forget about that Marvel series she’s filming literally right now for Disney+. Marvel projects in particular are infamous for their intensity—everyone from Robert Downey Jr. to Cate Blanchett has spoken up about the physical demand—so it’s no surprise Hawkeye has taken Hailee’s schedule from 0 to 100…which isn’t such a bad thing!

    “It’s actually been so much fun having to prepare for it, obviously mentally and emotionally, but physically,” Hailee told Cosmopolitan while connecting over Privé Revaux’s spring/summer 2021 collection. The sweet secret straight from the Marvel set? The trainer responsible for getting Hailee ready to shoot arrows as superhero Kate Bishop is none other than her own dad, Pete Steinfeld, whose fitness expertise is coming in clutch.

    “I knew I had a start date on this, and I had to show up, and I was going to be put through it on the physical side of things. And I was so looking forward to it, but I realized that…working out doesn’t always have to be about getting in the gym and sweating so much you can’t even see. It’s not about getting in there and losing as much weight as you possibly can. It’s just about getting your blood flowing and clearing your mind. And, you know, you happen to reap these physical benefits and these mental benefits, which I love,” Hailee told Cosmo. “My dad and I have been working for over a year on this and we continue to do, so it’s now become such a great part of my life that I will never let go of. I have this last crazy year and this role to thank for getting me into that headspace.” Continue reading “Hailee Steinfeld Talks Marvel’s ‘Hawkeye,’ “Wrong Direction,” Privé Revaux, and How She’s Juggling It All”

    Hailee Steinfeld Opens Up About Emily’s Relationship With Fame in ‘Dickinson’ Season 2

    Hailee Steinfeld’s Emily Dickinson wants to be famous — maybe, she thinks.

    She says it onstage with “international singing sensation” Adelaide May (Kelli Barrett) after attending a moving performance at the opera in the sixth episode of Dickinson’s second season. But as Emily’s dalliance with fame in the Apple TV+ series continues to play out, no sooner is she drawn to the bright lights of attention than she learns of its dark underside.

    “If you’re seen, then you’re exposed. Everything that’s exposed, well it goes stale,” Adelaide says. “The critics, they’ll put you on top for a minute but then they’ll drag you down. They’ll get sick of you, and they’ll destroy you. They hate you, see, because you made them love you. You were a courtesan and they fell for your trick.”

    It’s after this exchange when Emily, like she did earlier in the episode, imagines Adelaide is Sue (Ella Hunt), who hints that Emily wants more than the ephemeral appeal of fame, saying Emily craves “meaning” and “love.”

    In addition to drawing Emily closer to the lure of fame and featuring a passionate reunion with Sue — albeit in Emily’s imagination — the latest episode also continues to tease out the uncertain dynamic between Emily and her editor Sam Bowles (Finn Jones), who Emily fantasized about sleeping with just one episode earlier. As they sit together at the opera, he admonishes Emily for writing a letter describing, in great detail, her affection for him to his wife, reminding Emily of the rumors that he’s unfaithful to her. He tells her that his interest in her is purely professional. And during an emotional moment in the opera, when Emily grabs his hand, he quickly leaves, rejecting the latest poem she intended to give him.

    The Hollywood Reporter spoke to Steinfeld about how Emily feels about Sam, her character’s conflicting views towards fame and the extent to which the singer-actress drew upon her own experience in the public eye in portraying the poet’s concerns.

    Viewers see Emily wrestle with fame and having her poems published throughout the season. How do you think Emily feels about fame at the start of the season, or why does she feel so uncertain about having her poetry published?
    I think the daunting [nature] of it all and the self doubt that she’s already experiencing without even having the fame in knowing that might be what it brings, she hits writer’s block right away — just with the idea, just by being consumed by the idea of fame, not even yet having it. The idea to her is intriguing and exciting. To be celebrated as a writer, as an amazing poet. It’s hard to imagine. Her poems were only discovered after she died and for somebody that we’d like to think contemplated for so long whether she wanted to publish these poems or not, it was clear she did because she had; she had no choice but to put them under different names. But she wanted to know what people thought of her work. And I think the scariest part of fame, and I think this still holds true now, is that you can ask for it, you can achieve it, but once you have it it’s kind of a hard thing to get rid of in a sense, if you reach a certain level of it. And Emily is just sort of searching for answers to these questions and painting this picture in her brain that is equally as amazing as it is dangerous and terrifying.

    As Hailee Steinfeld Lands Marvel Role She Opens Up About Mental Health, Relationships & Apple TV’s Dickinson | Glamour UK

    When Hailee Steinfeld is left to self-shoot her GLAMOUR UK cover, she certainly doesn’t hold back, including herself devouring cupcakes in a pink ballgown and skyscraper heels, sitting on her kitchen floor. But you wouldn’t expect anything less from the 24-year-old multi-hyphenate, who rose to fame as an Oscar nominee at 13 years old in the Coen brothers’ True Grit, before going on to star in the Pitch Perfect franchise, receiving her second Golden Globe nomination for The Edge Of Seventeen and launching her own solo music career with empowering bangers Love Myself and Starving – notching up 1.4 billion Spotify streams. Oh, and she has over 13 million Instagram followers who are equally obsessed with her selfies and activism, with Hailee recently joining the #ArtistsForBlackLives movement, which saw her raising awareness of police violence and the detrimental treatment of the Black LGBTQ+ community.

    But like many of us, faced with a global pandemic, Hailee was forced to sit still and be alone with herself in a way that she hasn’t been able to since the tender age of 13. What has she learned about herself from this experience? “A whole lot,” Hailee exhales, talking from her Los Angeles home, where she has been in lockdown with her parents – Cheri, an interior designer, and Peter, a personal trainer – and her older brother, Griffin, a professional car racer.

    “I’ve gone through phases where I’m either going crazy or I’m not. I hadn’t had this kind of time since before I started working when I was young, so I feel like I’ve grown a lot as a person – emotionally and mentally. I’ve also been able to take time for myself and care for myself in ways I can’t when I’m on the road. I’ve never given myself the opportunity to reflect and appreciate how far I have come. I wasn’t aware of that before, so I do feel more confident and comfortable in my own skin and in my life,” she says proudly.

    Becoming ‘OK’ with her own company has equally been a revelation for Hailee. “I have learned how to just shut everything off and put the outside voices on pause by turning devices off,” she continues. “Whether I’m writing music, reading or going for a walk, I’ve done so many more things by myself that I’d never felt comfortable doing alone before.” Continue reading “As Hailee Steinfeld Lands Marvel Role She Opens Up About Mental Health, Relationships & Apple TV’s Dickinson | Glamour UK”

    Hailee Steinfeld Confirmed as Kate Bishop as Filming Begins

    And now for some casting news that we think is a real bullseye. It is just right on the mark. It is, and we cannot stress this enough, accurate. Hawkeye, the Disney+ series following Jeremy Renner’s archer Avenger, began filming in New York this week, and numerous outlets spotted Hailee Steinfeld in costume as Marvel fan-favorite, Kate Bishop.

    The inclusion of Kate Bishop in Hawkeye has been the hypest part of this series since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. Created by writer Allan Heinberg and artist Jim Cheung, the character is the first woman to adopt the Hawkeye mantle. The daughter of one of New York City’s wealthiest families, Kate turns her attention to fighting crime after a life-changing attack in central park, joining the Young Avengers and eventually settling on fellow archer Clint Barton as a mentor. Renner teased Kate’s arrival to set on Twitter but there hasn’t been an official casting confirmation from Marvel quite yet. So, you know, don’t tell them about this.

    For as long as people have been talking about Kate Bishop finally making the jump to live-action, they’ve been discussing Hailee Steinfeld filling the role. The young actress first made a spash at 13 in the Coen Bros’ True Grit remake before starring in two Pitch Perfect sequels, leading the Transformers spinoff Bumblebee, and providing the voice for Gwen Stacy in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

    Hailee Steinfeld Talks ‘Dickinson’, The Importance Of The Youth Vote And Fangirling Rihanna

    Having first gained recognition aged just 14 when she was nominated for an Oscar for her role in True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld has since released chart-dominating singles, starred in beloved film franchises like Pitch Perfect and is the lead in Peabody-award winning series Dickinson.

    All of this, and her general upbeat presence on social media, has led to her garnering a huge following and fanbase (13.1 million on Instagram). And over the past few months, Steinfeld has joined the chorus of actors, singers and influencers using their platforms for good, encouraging their predominantly young adult fans to vote in the upcoming US presidential election.

    ‘This will be the most important election of our time,’ the star told us recently when answering fans’ questions in a game of ‘Ask Me Anything’.

    ‘I cannot stress enough to my peers and young voters, specifically, how important it is and how much their vote matters… so get out there and vote.’

    This content is imported from Twitter. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

    The election – which takes place next week on Tuesday, November 3 – is clearly weighing heavy on Steinfeld’s mind as she responds to another question about what is her biggest feat with just three words: ‘This upcoming election.’

    Steinfeld also discussed her favourite red carpet looks to date and whose style she admires, one of whom being Rihanna – who she also credits with being the person who has made her the most starstruck.

    ‘I about died inside,’ Steinfeld told us.
