Hailee Steinfeld Covers Our December Issue and Talks Falling In Love, FOMO, and Red Solo Cups

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.)

The Pitch Perfect Women Really Have Us Thinking a 4th Movie Is Happening

Here’s some aca-amazing news to brighten up your Monday: Pitch Perfect 4 might be underway. On Sunday (September 30), four of the Barden Bellas—Anna Camp, Chrissie Fit, Brittany Snow, and Rebel Wilson—posted the same cryptic photo to their respective Instagrams. In the photo, the four Bellas pose while holding up four fingers. Wilson, Camp, and Fit all captioned the photo with four hearts, while Snow opted for “4 thumbs down.”

Naturally, fans are freaking out in the comments, with many interpreting the post as confirmation—or at least a hint—that a fourth movie in the popular Pitch Perfect franchise is on the way. Of course, there’s an another explanation for all this: As their Instagrams show, the Bellas were all present for Camp and Skylar Astin’s joint birthday celebration, so maybe the fours were just to show that, well, four of the former cast members have reunited in person.

Still, we’re not prepared to rule out the possibility of a Pitch Perfect 4. Considering the success of the previous three movies, another installment in the franchise is basically a no-brainer. And although screenwriter Kay Cannon told E! in April that Pitch Perfect 3 was the “end of the Bellas as we know them,” Anna Kendrick said she’d totally be down to reprise her role as Beca Mitchell for a fourth time. “Hell yeah!” she told Entertainment Weekly in August. “We’d do them forever.”

Kendrick isn’t the only Pitch Perfect star who’d want to return. Just last week Snow told Extra TV that “all of us would be game for it.” “We have the best time filming those movies. We made some of our best friends during that franchise,” she told the publication. “Part of us knows that chapter might be closed and is OK with that, but we are still incredibly close and we will probably make them—if they want us to—until the end of time.”
