True Grit (and “Best Supporting Actress” 2011 nominee) Hailee Steinfeld looks amazing on the cover of the upcoming issue of Parade Magazine.
Hailee, who was one of the youngest actresses ever to be nominated for an Academy Award, revealed to the publication why she decided to take acting classes instead of trying out for another sport and who inspired her to become an actress.
She remarked, “My parents have always told me, ‘The day you stop loving what you do, you’re not in the right place. As long as I’m loving it as much as I am now, I see myself doing this forever.’”
So how did she learn about the Oscar nomination?
“I was in bed and heard my parents cheering in the other room. I’m surprised my phone didn’t blow up from all the text messages.”
