Hailee Steinfeld (born December 11, 1996) is an American actress. She is known for her portrayal of Mattie Ross in the 2010 film True Grit, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
She is also known for her portrayal of Petra Arkanian in the 2013 sci-fi film, Ender's Game. She played Juliet Capulet opposite Douglas Booth in the 2013 film adaptation of William Shakespeare's romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, Zoey in the 2014 crime film Three Days to Kill, and starred opposite Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley in Begin Again as Violet, the daughter of Ruffalo's character. In 2014, she finished principal photography on the sequel to Pitch Perfect.
Steinfeld was born in Tarzana, Los Angeles, the daughter of Cheri (née Domasin), an interior designer, and Peter Steinfeld, a personal fitness trainer. She has an older brother, Griffin (born January 9, 1994), who is a professional NASCAR driver. Her paternal uncle is fitness trainer Jake Steinfeld, and her maternal great-uncle is former child actor Larry Domasin. Her older cousin, actress True O'Brien appeared in a television commercial when Steinfeld was eight years old, inspiring her to try acting as well. Her father is Jewish and her mother is of English, Filipino and German descent. Steinfeld was raised in Agoura Hills and later in Thousand Oaks, California, attending Ascension Lutheran School, Conejo Elementary, and Colina Middle School. She has been home-schooled since 2008.
Steinfeld counts fellow actresses Sarah Hyland, Barely Lethal co-star Sophie Turner and The Magic Bracelet co-star Bailee Madison among her close friends. She is also friends with singer-songwriter Taylor Swift.
Steinfeld began acting at the age of eight, initially appearing in several short films to gain experience. She played the role of Talia Alden in the award-winning short film, She's a Fox. She went on to make several television commercials and guest appearances on television programs. Her breakthrough came when Steinfeld was chosen out of 15,000 girls for the role of Mattie Ross in True Grit when she was 13. The film was released internationally on December 22, 2010, and her performance was well received by critics. Richard Corliss of Time Magazine called it one of the Top 10 Movie Performances of 2010 and wrote that Steinfeld "delivers the orotund dialogue as if it were the easiest vernacular, stares down bad guys, wins hearts. That's a true gift". The role earned Steinfeld a nomination at the 83rd Academy Awards for Best Supporting Actress; the Oscar went to Melissa Leo.
She played Juliet Capulet in a 2013 adaptation of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Steinfeld was cast in 2011, at age fourteen, in a role originally intended for a 20-year-old actress. Since there was some concern that she would be asked to appear nude in the film, its director explained that when Steinfeld was cast, the script was changed to make it "age-appropriate for a 14-year-old."The screenwriter added that the film's purity was important, and the main characters "don't make love until they have been married." The film was released in October 2013 to poor reviews in the United States and internationally.
Steinfeld played Violet, one of the leads in the romance-drama Begin Again (formerly called Can A Song Save Your Life?). The film was given a limited release in the United States on June 27, 2014, grossing $134,064 on its opening weekend; it opened in wide release on July 11. It was re-released by The Weinstein Company on August 29.
Steinfeld starred as Petra Arkanian in Ender's Game, a science fiction action-adventure film based on the book by Orson Scott Card. The film was released on November 1, 2013. Paramount Pictures closed a deal in 2011 for the screen rights to the Cat Patrick novel Forgotten and announced that Steinfeld would play London Lane in a project yet to be filmed as of 2014. Steinfeld was announced to star as Min Green in a screen adaptation of Daniel Handler's romantic-comedy book Why We Broke Up, originally set for release in 2014. She was also cast as Eliza opposite Ender's Game co-star Asa Butterfield in the film adaptation of Ten Thousand Saints, which is set to premiere on January 23, 2015, at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. Steinfeld was originally cast to play the female role in the 2015 film, For the Dogs, but was replaced by actress Emma Roberts. In 2014, Steinfeld joined the cast of Pitch Perfect 2, alongside Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Elizabeth Banks (who is also directing).
In spring 2014, Steinfeld narrated as the voice of Anne Frank for an exhibition on Frank at the Museum of Tolerance. In October, she was cast to star as Hadley in The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, based on the novel of the same name by Jennifer E. Smith.
In November 2014, Steinfeld was added to the shortlist of actors who were up for the role of the young Jean Grey in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse film against several other actresses including Chloe Grace Moretz and Elle Fanning. She was announced in January 2015 as the star of the film adaptation of Carrie Pilby, the YA novel by Caren Lissner.

People were so desperate for any sign of color at the Feb. 27 ceremony that many media outlets, including the Boston Globe, accepted as fact the rumor that True Grit nominee Hailee Steinfeld's mother is part African-American. (Steinfeld's rep told THR that the claim, spread on the Internet in recent days, is erroneous.)
