Jeff Bridges may have his name on the marquee, but he thinks Hailee Steinfeld is the true star.
Bridges spoke with MovieLine.com about their Oscar-nominated film, ‘True Grit,’ and the leading man spoke glowingly about his 14-year old tough talking co-star.
“Just as a person, she has a real sweetness and a generosity of spirit, and I think a lot of that, to a large degree comes from how she was raised,” Bridges said. “Most kids who are 13 or 14 years old are really chomping at the bit to start dating and getting in cars and all that stuff. And Hailee doesn’t seem too eager to be older than she is. She’s really appreciating her age. And in a very odd way, that makes her more mature.”
