Self-confidence is everything to Hailee Steinfeld.
The actress and singer has plenty of reasons to smile, including a high flying career, and girl power advocate Taylor Swift is one of her best friends.
Hailee is keen to share the message of confidence with her fans, which she believes she has done with new song Love Myself
“I’ve had girls come up to me and say, ‘Thank you for this song and this message, because it’s something that I needed to hear.’ Regardless of how they interpreted it, that’s all that matters to me at the end of the day,” she smiled to Ladygunn magazine.
“It’s something I need to remind myself of — how much power it is in being able to love yourself. It’s so easy to forget that we live in a world that is so judgmental. I think if you can start with yourself and have that self-assurance and that self-confidence and love, then you’re good and you’re set.”
As well as music, Hailee is still busy with film commitments. She currently has three new films in production, including Pitch Perfect 3, which is due out in 2017.
Hailee appeared in the second instalment of the film joining regulars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Brittany Snow in fictional all-female a cappella group the Barden Bellas. Despite having an impressive set of lungs on her, Hailee was so nervous on the first day of shooting that she couldn’t lip sync to her pre-recorded song, meaning she had to belt it out live.
"So the first time you hear me singing you will be hearing me sing live. Which is terrifying!” she giggled previously to Jimmy Kimmel. “And we were like well into shooting so I knew everybody, it wasn't like I had just met them and now I'm singing in front of them. They're really good singers."
