A child actress who had her breakthrough role at age 13 in the Coen Brothers' True Grit (2010), a performance which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress, Hailee Steinfeld is also a charting pop singer whose vocal talent was featured in the film musical Pitch Perfect 2 (2015). Born in Tarzana, California and raised in Thousand Oaks, Steinfeld acted in several television commercials, TV show episodes, and short films as a child before her feature film debut in True Grit. That role led to screen appearances with the likes of Harrison Ford, Jessica Alba, Kristen Wiig, Anna Kendrick, and Kevin Costner while still in her teens. In 2015, she was also featured in the music video for Taylor Swift's number one hit "Bad Blood." Her own pop single, the rousing "Love Myself," hit the Hot 100 that summer in addition to being a streaming and radio hit. Steinfeld's debut album was expected on Republic Records late in 2015.
