Is there Bad Blood between Hailee Steinfeld and Taylor Swift? The actress may have been featured in TSwift’s vid, but Hailz admitted in a new interview that she’s not as close with Taylor as it appears. See what she said right here!
“I think people think we spend a lot more time together than we actually do!” Hailee told Seventeen magazine about her relationship with Taylor. But don’t worry, Swifties…their lack of quality time doesn’t mean Taylor kicked Hailee out of the squad. The 19-year-old quickly added, “She’s amazing, though.”
Phew, crisis averted! It sounds like Taylor, 26, and Hailee’s friendship is still going strong, but it’s just that the superstars don’t have a whole lot of free time in their busy schedules to see each other. Thank goodness — the last thing Taylor needs right now is another feud!
Hailee is the cover star of Seventeen‘s September issue, and (believe it or not) Taylor wasn’t the main reason the mag was talking to her. In fact, rather than talking about girl squads or good friends, Hailee spent a lot of her interview opening up about her bullied past. Who would’ve ever thought a girl like Hailee was bullied!
“I’d start every day with a threat,” Hailee revealed to the mag. People would come by and slam my locker shut when I was still putting my books in it. It was just the most absurd things that you are supposed to see only in the movies.”
Clearly her grade school days weren’t easy, but Hailee fought her way through the bullying, and now she’s totally owning life as a confident, gorgeous, and successful young woman. Heck, she is in Taylor Swift’s squad, after all — even if they don’t hang out all the time!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Hailee isn’t considered part of Taylor’s squad? Are you surprised to hear they’re not super close? Tell us below!
