In praise of Hailee Steinfeld, the picture of poise at the Oscars
The most recent entertainment news cycle has been a particularly negative one.
Christina Aguilera was arrested for alleged public drunkenness.
Charlie Sheen is cracking up at a speed so rapid, we need a jet-pack to keep up with it.
Americans everywhere -- at least the ones that lurk on the Internet -- have (understandably in most cases) blasted James Franco’s inability to generate a modicum of energy while hosting the Academy Awards.
It's enough to make a person start to lose faith in celebrities altogether. (I know, you already did that years ago when John Travolta signed on to star in "Stayin' Alive." Whatever. Just play along.)
Well, here's someone to give us all a little hope for the future: Hailee Steinfeld. And while she may have lost the best supporting actress Oscar to Melissa Leo on Sunday night, she still came out a winner for looking adorable and handling herself -- as she has throughout the awards-season process -- with great poise. I caught up with her on the red carpet and was again impressed by her grace under pressure, captured on video below.
"True Grit"? Yes. But also true class. Let's hope she stays that way.
