Hailee Steinfeld earned her stripes in the entertainment industry at a young age, thanks to a breakthrough role in “True Grit.” The actress recently chatted with W Magazine for its “Screen Test” series to discuss breaking into the industry at such a young age and what her first kiss was like.
“My first kiss was actually on-screen, which I don’t consider my first kiss,” Hailee explained. “It was a student thesis graduate film called ‘She’s a Fox.’ I had to kiss two guys in it. That was a lot for me. I went from kissing one boy to kissing another. I was nervous. I didn’t know what to do.”
What made the experience even more awkward? Hailee had to pucker up to a guy who was much shorter than she was.
“One of the guys was shorter than me and they had to place him on an apple box,” she said. “I didn’t know how to feel about that. It was very awkward.”
Watch what else Hailee remembers about her first kiss and her time filming and promoting “True Grit” below.
