True Grit : A ladder to success

Born in the neighborhood of Los Angeles, California as the daughter to Cheri and Peter Steinfeld, Steinfeld was raised along with her older brother Griffin. Her mother is an interior designer by profession whereas her father is a personal fitness trainer. Steinfeld was born from a Jewish father and Filipino descent mother and raised in Agoura Hills and later moved to Oaks, California. She went to Lutheran school, Conejo Elementary and Colina Middle School.

She was inspired to pursue a career in acting after she saw her maternal cousin, actress O’Brien appearing in television commercials when she was eight. Steinfeld started her acting career from short films when she was eight. She appeared on the role of Talla Alden in She’s Fox, which won an award. After gaining experience in short films, she appeared on the several television commercials and appeared in the guest roles in various television series. Her acting career uplifted to a different level when she was selected for the role of Mattie Ross among 15,000 girls for the movie True Grit. At that time, she was just 13 and after the film was released on December 22, 2010, she received encouraging feedback from critics. After the release of True Grit, she was picked to be the face of Miu Miu, the Italian designer. After success in True Grit, she appeared in the various roles such as The Magic Bracele (2013) as Angela, Begin Again (2013) as Violet Mulligan, Barely Lethal (2015) as Megan Walsh, The Edge of Seventeen (2016) as Nadine Byrd and much more.


Besides films, she has also shown her strong presence in television series as well. Her television works include: Back to You (2007) as Little Girl, Sons of Tucson (2010) as Bethany Springs and Annie’s Room (2013) as Narrator. She has also made her appearance on various Music Videos such as “ Endlessly” by The Cab and “Sing” by the Pentatonix. In 2011, she was selected in the role of twenty years old girl when she was just fourteen. Some issue arose as she would need to appear nude in the film, but later on, the script was changed to make it appropriate for her.

Steinfeld is close to various big names in Hollywood such as actress Sarah Hyland, Odeya, Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. She is a member of Swift’s “squad” and has been appearing on the stage along with singer Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid. It would be too soon to talk about her relationship and affairs.
