We fell in love with her as the gutsy Mattie Ross in True Grit (2010) – a role which earned her an Oscar nomination – and now Hailee Steinfeld is back playing Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, which is due for release on 7 February.

- Despite playing the lead in Romeo and Juliet Hailee admits she’s never been in love. “It was hard for me at first trying to understand the character but I pulled from personal experiences and people around me. I’m 16. I haven’t had a boyfriend.”

- Hailee may be a star but she still has to clean her room! “And do my homework, wash the dishes and vacuum the floor. I’m the same as any other girl my age.”

- Hailee’s older brother, Griffin (19), who often accompanies her on set and to interviews, is a professional race car driver.

- She’s received some good advice from veteran actors she’s worked with such as Harrison Ford and Jeff Bridges. “They’ve all told me to just have a good time and take my time and enjoy what I’m doing. I live by that. I love that advice.”
