With her new flick "Romeo and Juliet" nearing its anticipated premiere, Hailee Steinfeld garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the October 2013 issue of Teen Vogue.

Check out a few highlights from Miss Steinfield's interview below. For more, be sure to visit Teen Vogue!

On handling fashion critics:
"It confuses me that someone would take the time out of their day to criticize somebody for what they're wearing. Regardless of who says what, I wear what I wear because I love it."

On having more gal pals:
"I have so many great girlfriends, and I prefer my time with them over guys. I'm OK with that right now."

On missing out on high school events:
"I've never been to a homecoming or a prom. I think it would be really cool to say that I have. But I've been to the Oscars, and that's the coolest thing that anybody can ever say. Though it's not the same. It's not your high school prom!"
