Transformers blockbuster Bumblebee star, Hailee Steinfeld, has proven that she’s more than just your average Hollywood actress—she’s a triple-threat. The 21-year-old Oscar nominee, pop singer, and former Swift Squad regular opens up to Cosmopolitan US’ December 2018 issue on love, shying away from the party life, and more.
Hailee wears David Koma dress, Bulgari jewels and Christian Louboutin heels on the cover, photographed and styled by Kai Z Feng and Deborah Watson respectively.
On being in love: “When you fall in love, 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. And when you see them happy, it makes you happier. When you love who you are with that person…there’s nothing that compares.”
On missing out on the typical teenage life: “I used to go on Facebook and see all my friends dressed up for winter formal or homecoming or prom. I would think, Even if it’s the worst night, I’ll never know what that feels like.”
On not living a wild party lifestyle: “That side of it has never been my thing. [Years ago at a party] I got completely shut down by everyone and maybe it’s because I didn’t have a red Solo cup in my hands. I realized, I’m not going to stay here and feel uncomfortable just to fit in.” (source)
