Bella Thorne is preparing for her next attempt at establishing herself as both a singer and an actress with new music and acting gigs on the horizon. Naturally, she’s now cozying up to celebrities who have successfully conquered the dual identity. Bella finally got around to watching “The Edge of Seventeen” and wanted everyone to know that Golden Globe-nominated Hailee Steinfeld knocked it out of the park. The film’s positive reception makes Bella’s two-month late review entirely unnecessary, but she’s not one to let a good opportunity go to waste.

Hailee Steinfeld appeared on Monday night’s episode of “The Tonight Show” to celebrate her unexpected Golden Globe nomination for “The Edge of Seventeen.” The actress told host Jimmy Fallon about what it was like to film the movie and how her natural chemistry with co-star Woody Harrelson saved the day. “Honestly, thank God, we developed such a natural banter between the two of us,” she says. That “natural banter” produced a lot of bloopers because the pair couldn’t keep it together.
One scene had to be filmed over and over again because Hailee and Woody developed a strong case of the giggles. “I had never seen a human’s face more red in my life,” Hailee says of her co-star. “It was the best thing but also the worst thing, because you’re like, ‘We are making no progress here, but we’re having fun.'”
Hailee, as some might forget, is also a singer. She discussed her time on Meghan Trainor’s tour and ended up revealing that her dad is a strong contender for father of the year. Hailee’s mom joined her on the tour, but her dad stayed back. She admits that he typically writes a card for both her and her mother whenever they take off for an extended period of time. On Meghan’s tour, he “wrote out a card for every city on the tour” so that Hailee “had a card to open before every show.”

Any disappointment felt by Hailee Steinfeld for not snagging “Best Young Actor/Actress” at Sunday night’s Critic’s Choice Awards has quickly disappeared. Hailee learned of her first-ever Golden Globe nomination Monday morning and freaked out in a way that would make Demi Lovato, a first-time Grammy nominee, proud.
Hailee Steinfeld’s latest film, “The Edge of 17,” premiered at the Regal L.A. Live theater on Wednesday night and she couldn’t wait to show off her dress. Before hitting the red carpet, the actress gave her Instagram followers a look at the dress she chose to celebrate the premiere of her coming-of-age film due to hit theaters next week.
The cast members had some fun while on the red carpet by doing the mannequin challenge, as well. While their attempt was commendable, there were some eye blinkers so they still weren’t quite as strong as the previous challenges we’ve seen.
