Just recently Hailee Steinfeld, Petra Arkanian, was featured in ASOS magazine. Looking lovely and joyous as ever Hailee speaks with ASOS about her career launch and her many friends she’s met along the way. Friends that include The Hunger Games victor, Jennifer Lawrence, her co-star from The Keeping Room, Brit Marling and Romeo actor, Douglas Booth.
Then there’s Douglas Booth, the Romeo to her Juliet. ‘He is so, so great,’ she says. ‘I can’t think about him without laughing, I love him so much – he’s so funny. We were doing this film that was so heavy and intense, and at the end of the day we would just look at each other and laugh, like this is totally, completely crazy and amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to experience that with.’
Snapped along with her adorable dog, Hailee spills how she first came to love fashion, something we’ve seen on many occasions, and how it became a big part of her life.
‘Fashion is something I’ve always been interested in,’ she says. ‘I used to watch the Oscars but paid no attention to the awards. I was seven, and had no idea what they meant, but I would watch to see what everybody was wearing on the red carpet. It wasn’t until I strated attending red carpet events and was fown out to Paris for y first show, and saw how much is put into it all, that I had this new appreciation for everthing. Now it’s become a huge part of my life.’
She’s only known for her role in True Grit but Hailee has a very steep path in front of her. With Ender’s Game coming out soon and Romeo and Juliet out now, we can’t forget her Oscar nomination and her campaign with Miu Miu, everyone has become enamored with her and she definitely isn’t going to see that change soon.
Thank you to ASOS magazine for the amazing pictures.
