Hailee Steinfeld may have played ultimate badass Mattie Ross in True Grit, but in true life, she was bullied so much that she had to drop out of public school.
The Oscar-nominated girl opened up to USA Today about her experiences in 6th grade that drove her to switch to home-school two years ago.
Explains the star, “One of the reasons I left was because of social issues, I guess you could say…It wasn’t actually about the acting.” When asked if it was about being bullied, Hailee quietly responded, “Yeah.”
In sixth grade? "Yeah," she says quietly.
“I was teased really bad. I just happened to be that kid everyone picked on. It’s the worst.”
