Don’t worry, Kendall and Kylie Jenner: Hailee Steinfeld’s got your back! Hailee is defending the ‘KUWTK’ stars after her ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ co-star, Rebel Wilson, slammed them in November, saying she didn’t want to present with them at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Hailee Steinfeld is BFFs with Kendall Jenner, 20, and Kylie Jenner, 18, so she wasn’t happy about her Pitch Perfect 2 co-star, Rebel Wilson, 35, dissing them back in November. As you’ll recall, Rebel was “asked to present with Kendall and Kylie at the latest VMAs,” but she said, “no, I’d rather do it by myself,” she revealed in an interview. Her reason? “I don’t hate them individually, but what they stand for is totally different to what I stand for. They seem a bit superficial and their career isn’t really based on talent,” she said. Well, Rebel’s comment didn’t sit well with Hailee.
In a new interview with Australia’s The Fix, Hailee said, “I support any decision anyone makes. We all work very hard, we do a lot to maintain all of that. I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I’ve been in the same circle as Kylie and Kendall for years and they are very sweet girls. I stay in touch with them, I think they’re great.” Good for her!
But Rebel doesn’t feel the same way — obviously. Back in November, Rebel also said, “How Kim Kardashian got famous was from a sex tape, and I just went to acting school and worked really hard. I know they’re super popular, but I’m more about personality and working hard to get to where I am.”
For what it’s worth, Rebel apologized — sort of — for her comments, in a series of tweets a week after her controversial radio interview. “I’d be very happy to debate the Kardashians anywhere/anytime/any topic,” Rebel wrote in her first tweet. She then followed up, adding, “Or maybe their publicist can just stop the smear campaign against me because I made one prompted comment about them on Australian radio.” But, in her final and third tweet, Rebel tried to smooth things over, writing, “In any event, I’m MORE than over this little thing and wish the K clan well X even sent them flowers.”
Get along, girls! Hopefully, this is the last we’ll hear of this feud! We love everyone involved in this, and we don’t want to see them at each other’s throats. And, anyway, who wants to get on Kendall and Kylie’s bad side? Not us!
