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.’

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.
