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.

    Dickinson Has Hailee Steinfeld Thinking a Lot About Fame

    On a per-minute basis, Apple TV+’s Dickinson is probably the densest show on TV, in terms of a combination of literary references, a contemporary soundtrack, and scenes that can suddenly shift from hard comedy to poignancy. Balancing it all at the show’s center, there’s Hailee Steinfeld as the legendary Emily Dickinson herself, playing a brash young version of the great poet who alternately sulky and cutting and enthusiastic about throwing ragers. Dickinson is Steinfeld’s first TV show, after a movie career of attention-grabbing performances from her breakout in True Grit through The Edge of Seventeen and Bumblebee. In making the show, she relished the chance to dig deeper into a single character, as Steinfeld told Vulture over the phone. Along the way, she also found herself thinking about her own career, her fame, and even her approach to the music she makes.

    I feel like Emily Dickinson, known late-in-life shut-in, would handle quarantine pretty well. Has playing her helped you get through all this?
    In the beginning, it did. At this point? Not so sure. But I’ve had conversations with castmates and [Dickinson creator] Alena [Smith] about how Emily would’ve had no problem with this whatsoever.

    Have you done any bread-baking? The bread Emily makes on the show looks so good.
    I have not, but you’ve given me something to do now.

    In the first season, the scenes that really stood out are those fights between Emily and her father, with you and Toby Huss facing off, especially the one where he slaps her and she disassociates and “goes to the circus.” What was it like to film that?
    That relationship was one of my favorites to figure out. Having all 10 scripts at the beginning, I loved that I was able to see this clear arc, but the discoveries as we filmed kept happening. Toby and I had so many conversations that were fun to have and uncomfortable to have about that relationship, which is very loving and protective. It’s complicated and tricky.

    Was there a moment where the relationship clicked for you?

    I had a few, and luckily the first one came in the first episode, with the scene where the whole family is sitting around the table and Emily decides to announce that her poem is being published and all hell breaks loose. That was a moment I had on set with Toby where I feel like we really locked. The scene was rewritten a few times, and Alena was very particular with every word, and once we nailed it, that was definitely a moment.

    Emily’s other defining relationship is with Sue Gilbert, played by Ella Hunt. They don’t even necessarily have the words to describe the love they feel for each other. How was it figuring out how to play that?
    I don’t know how to describe how the dynamic was different to me than making a film, but because each episode felt like making a film, it felt like we had dug so deep. Ella and I were able to have the time to have these conversations, and I don’t know if I’ve had conversations with actors as I’ve had with this project. Ones where you set aside the time and sit down and discuss. Sue was somebody that saw Emily for who she was. A lot of people had all these opinions and preconceived notions about this person, and Sue saw through that. It’s a really beautiful relationship that happens to be between two women who just see each other. Continue reading “Dickinson Has Hailee Steinfeld Thinking a Lot About Fame”

    5 Beauty Products Hailee Steinfeld Swears By

    Is there anything Hailee Steinfeld can’t do? The 23-year-old actress (Oscar-nominated, mind you) and singer (she recently released her EP Half-Written Story) has won millions over with her wide range of talents. After one phone call with her, however, I found myself even more impressed by how passionate she is speaking about building up self-confidence.

    “I learn the importance of self-love more and more as each day goes by. The power that comes with it can change your life, but it takes time—at least, it did for me,” Hailee says. “Society’s standards constantly change and are confusing. We see this feed of altered images and think, Oh, this is what people like. If this is what people are attracted to, is that what you have to be?”

    She confronted insecurity at a young age, while doing photo shoots. “I would see the photos and the beauty marks on my face would get taken out of the image. I would see myself without them and think. Oh god, they’re not beautiful. They’re ugly,” she recalled. “Now, I’ve learned to love these marks even if someone else classifies them as imperfections or not beautiful.”

    As for how she reminds herself to stay positive she shared, “I tell myself that I am happy, to stand tall, and to smile. This makes me feel like I’m bringing out my best. You constantly have to remind yourself of how unique, beautiful, and special you are.”

    Other self-care practices she’s been leaning on–especially while most of the world was still in lockdown–include “going for walks, getting fresh air–there’s nothing more refreshing than just waking up and filling your lungs with fresh air,” she said. She’s also been having sit-down dinners at home with her family every night. “I can’t tell you the last time that’s been something we were able to do,” she shared. “We’re taking time to reflect on who we are, what makes us happy, and what really matters in our lives. This is something that I’ll never take for granted again.”

    On top of having her inner beauty practices down pat, she was also eager to share all of the beauty products she’s been loving (lucky us!). Keep on reading for her top five picks.

    Kora Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask
    “I feel like my skin is psychotically sensitive–so my beauty routine consists of very few products and products with natural ingredients. This is a super lightweight gel mask that leaves skin super glowy and smooth. When I saw this mask was a ‘sleeping mask,’ I was like no way, because if I put something on my skin for just four minutes it’s game over. I tried this and it’s actually my favorite thing in the world. I was literally receiving compliments on my skin over FaceTime–that’s when you know this stuff is working.” Continue reading “5 Beauty Products Hailee Steinfeld Swears By”

    Hailee Steinfeld Finds Clarity Through Acting and Music-Making | V Magazine

    23-year-old Hailee Steinfeld is an artist of ambidexterity, showcasing supremacy across an impressive repertoire of on-screen roles in film and television, most notably in the award-winning movies True Grit and The Edge of Seventeen, while also boasting a long-standing discography in pop-leaning music. Currently executive producing and starring in Alena Smith’s historical drama series Dickinson as the trailblazing female poet of the 1850s Emily Dickinson and simultaneously riding the success of her newly released EP Half Written Story, Steinfeld is no stranger to balancing a multitude of highly-acclaimed, creative roles.

    Garnering an Academy nomination at just 14 years old for her supporting role in True Grit, Steinfeld’s adolescent growth largely occurred in the spotlight, and a majority of her learned virtues stem from her various character embodiments. “There are characters that I’ve played that have taught me so much about who I am,” she says. “Even though I’m not necessarily going through exactly what these characters are going through as I play them out in my real life, I still get to grow through those experiences and learn about myself every step of the way.” For Steinfeld, acting provides an exploratory insight into her own identity as she enters different mindscapes in pursuit of perfecting her entertainment abilities.

    On the essence of her fearless, history-based character in Apple TV+’s Dickinson, Steinfeld recognizes the importance of both upholding the statutes of the path-forging poet’s society-shifting work and the modernization of her narrative for today’s world, citing the role as a contemporary reflection of issues in the 21st century. “One thing I love so much about this show is that it is in no way putting anyone in a box,” she says. “I think that we are moving closer and closer to that in our world today. What’s so wild about this show is that it takes place hundreds and hundreds of years ago, and yet we’re still dealing with some of the issues that they were then. Our show looks at that time through a modern lens.”

    On music’s terrain, Steinfeld is continuously discovering her sound with each studio session she traverses, and her latest project, Half Written Story, is certainly one of her most eye-opening bodies of work to-date. “I find that I’m in this constant experimental process when it comes to music,” she explains. “With [Half Written Story], I really just wanted to make songs that sounded the way I felt when I was going through what it is I’m talking about in each song, and I feel like I accomplished that.”

    Seeking inspiration entirely from her personal experiences and aspiring to instill an unwavering sense of confidence in her listeners, Steinfeld harmonizes the lessons she’s learned from heartbreak, specifically on her chart-topping track “I Love You’s.” She expounds, “The ultimate message behind that song is realizing the importance of making a decision for yourself and sticking with it. I think when we experience pain or heartbreak we’ll look for something to distract us from that. I mean, I have in the past, anyways. I finally got to a point where I was like, I just need to regain my sense of self here.” Hoping to share that epiphany with the world, Steinfeld’s musical prowess is one of melodic self-growth and good-natured, lyrical wisdom.

    At a safe distance, photographer Connor Franta captured Hailee Steinfeld in tranquil, self-isloation amid the COVID-19 pandemic, below. Leaving V with a final word of advice in these times of uncertainty, Steinfeld soothingly states, “Do your best to maintain a positive attitude and, most importantly, breathe.”

    Hailee Steinfeld Releases ‘Half Written Story’ | V Magazine

    If pop music is a means of escapism, I’d debate that we need it more than ever. Thanks in part to Hailee Steinfeld’s “Half Written Story,” the first of a two-part project, that door to “anywhere but where I really am” is cracking open just in time for the weekend. That’s not to imply that Steinfeld’s new music is happy-go-lucky sugar pop; on the contrary, it’s a raw and emotive body of work for the starlet.

    I spoke to Hailee in the beginning of March, just as the global lockdown began to hit the Western nations. Here are a few excerpts from that interview–and check out “Half Written Story,” below.

    There’s this very polarizing topic of being productive while on lockdown. What’s your feeling about that?
    Yeah, what’s funny is I’ve kind of gone back and forth on it. I’ve gone back and forth where I do feel, you know, I could get so much done. I have so much time on my hands, but at the same time, it’s kind of been, I think a blessing for a lot of people realizing the importance of just slowing down for a minute and taking a moment to appreciate what we do have access to, you know, and who we have around.

    How are you passing the time?
    I have done more vacuuming randomly than I ever have in my entire life. My life is sort of a constant cycle of packing and unpacking and sometimes I never fully unpack, and I’ve got one foot in one foot out the door, and so I’ve just kind of been like, nesting a little bit. I’m not used to being home like this. And I’m making my space as creative as I can. I’ve ordered some equipment to build a little home studio, which is actually something I wanted to do for the longest time. And I’ve finally been able to get around to it. I’ve also been working out a lot. My dad’s a personal trainer. So we’ve been getting really creative with our workouts.

    It all sounds pretty relatable.
    I also got a puppy recently, so she’s been keeping me pretty occupied, and it’s been wonderful actually being able to be home with her and train her in love affair so

    Your song “I Love You’s” is about going through a breakup and not wanting to jump immediately into a new relationship, Can you give us a bit of the backstory there?
    I went through a breakup and entered a new relationship probably too soon after that breakup. And I guess there’s never really like, a designated time you’re meant to let go by, you know, before jumping into something new. Your heart wants what it wants, and you listen to your heart. You know, I’m no expert at this, with relationships and what have you. But I’m learning as I go. And I realized that sometimes you don’t necessarily realize the importance of taking time to heal. I think a lot of times we, I mean, I’ve been in situations where I think I’ve convinced myself I’m okay. When maybe I’m not deep down. But anyway, I went into this one relationship. And when that ended, I felt like the wind had been just knocked out of me. I just was like, completely heartbroken. And I felt very hopeless. And so I made the decision of needing time needing that time that I needed in the first place to just heal and focus on myself and, you know, really gain clarity within myself that I had lost for quite some time. So that was kind of where the idea…when I first heard this song, I was like, “This is exactly what I said to myself.” So when I heard this for the first time, it resonated with me on a spiritual level.
