Childhood and Youth

Hailee Steinfeld was born on December 11, 1996, in Los Angeles. Her mother, Cheri Steinfeld, is an interior designer, and her father, Peter Steinfeld, is a fitness trainer. The actress has an older brother, Griffin, who became a race car driver.

Hailee's distinctive appearance comes from a diverse family background. Her father is Jewish, while her maternal grandfather was half Filipino and half African-American. However, her family didn’t only bless Hailee with her good looks, but also with considerable acting talent. Her cousin once removed was the well-known actor of the 1960s and 1970s, Larry Domasin, and her first cousin is actress and model True O'Brien (Paige Larson in the series "Days of Our Lives").

In fact, it was her cousin's appearance in a commercial that inspired an 8-year-old Hailee to try her hand at acting. A childhood friend who invited Steinfeld to his school play reinforced her interest in the profession. "It was so cool to see someone I grew up with on stage. It made me think that nothing is impossible," says the actress.

The actress’s mother is still thankful to her daughter’s teacher for spotting "something in Hailee" and recommending her for a program for gifted children. But before deciding to aim for something bigger and attending movie auditions, the girl spent a whole year taking acting lessons, which was primarily for her parents’ peace of mind. Her mother and father wanted to be sure that Hailee was serious about her new pursuit. "Before this, she tried horseback riding, tennis, basketball, and other sports, but she never really took to any of them," the actress's parents share.

Acting Career

At the age of 10, Hailee Steinfeld, thanks to her agent, landed her first roles. Initially, these were roles in commercials and short films. One of Hailee's most notable early roles was in the film "She's a Fox".

With an increasing number of film offers, the young girl switched to homeschooling. This was the only way she could manage both work and studies.

When Hailee was 13, she was cast in the lead role in the Coen brothers' western "True Grit". In the film, a girl named Mattie Ross leaves her home to find and punish her father's killer, the outlaw Tom Chaney. Steinfeld impressed the Coens not only with her convincing performance but also with her shooting skills, which she learned from her father, and her horseback riding experience came in handy too.

The film, which starred Hollywood actors Matt Damon, Jeff Bridges, Josh Brolin, and Domhnall Gleeson, received critical acclaim. Richard Corliss of Time magazine called Hailee's performance one of the best of 2010. For her outstanding work, the young Steinfeld was nominated for an Oscar, but the award ultimately went to Melissa Leo for her role in the drama "The Fighter" directed by David O. Russell.

In May 2011, five months after the release of "True Grit", Hailee became an ambassador for the Italian designer brand Miu Miu. An even more impressive gift from fate was the lead role in the film "Romeo & Juliet", based on Shakespeare's tragedy.

The role of the lovestruck beauty was originally intended for a 22-year-old actress. When the role was given to 14-year-old Steinfeld, the script had to be significantly revised to remove most of the nude scenes. Incidentally, Douglas Booth, the actor playing Romeo, was 20 years old at the time of filming.

Hailee's next standout performances were in the romantic drama "Begin Again" (2013) with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo and in Gavin Hood's science fiction film "Ender's Game" (2013) about the fight against hostile aliens.

Hailee also continues to pursue her musical career: in 2023, she released a new single, SunKissing. Like her previous song, Coast, it's a nod to her Californian roots:
I was able to create an entire universe, which I had never managed to do with music before. This is really the first time I've managed to build a real world. Everyone felt a bit of it with 'Coast', but this [SunKissing] is so much more.
