Hailee Steinfeld admits being a teen star is difficult.
The 'Romeo & Juliet' actress found it hard to be thrust into the adult world of Hollywood but credits her parents for helping her to cope and not go off the rails.
Hailee told Company magazine's August 2013 issue: ''For teenagers - and I mainly speak for myself on this one - you're put into this adult world and it's scary as anything can happen at any moment, but I'm just thankful my parents have raised me the way they have. I feel really confident just being me. I think a lot of the young actresses out there are the same - they've got really good backgrounds and families. We're just doing what we love and we're only doing it for that reason.''
However, the 16-year-old actress revealed that one of the advantages of her fame is that she can now have her pick of designer clothes.
She said: ''People ask me If I've always been into fashion and my immediate answer is, 'yes', but my way of being into fashion before all of this was going through a magazine and saying, 'I love this dress,; and cutting it out and putting it up on my wall. But now, it's like so, so crazy and on such a different level -and I can meet all these incredible designers. Being the face of Miu Miu is something I still can't comprehend. It was such an incredible experience and fashion has become such a huge part of me on a real level.''
