I actually have to give most of the credit for admiring this lovely, young actress, to Polka Dot; who recently did a post on this star.
Hailee Steinfeld is a new inspiration of mine. She's cute, she's fourteen, she's modest, she's mature, and she won an Oscar award for being the best supporting actress in the movie, True Grit.
After reading Polka Dot's post on her, I decided to simply look her up. After finding a few photos of her, I wanted to find out how she got her start in the acting industry, how she got her role in True Grit and basic information about she, herself.
And wow - I truly do admire her after seeing her on David Letterman and finding out a bit more about her. From what Hailee has explained about how she got her start, it just shows that with quite a bit of studying, practice and hard work, that you can, in fact, pursue your dreams.
This girl went from taking a few acting classes, studying, and being an extra on film sets....
