Hailee Steinfeld: Bridges turned her on to Share Our Strength

Youth Impact Report 2011: Power of Youth

WHO: Actress Hailee Steinfeld’s breakthrough performance in Joel and Ethan Coen’s “True Grit” led to an Academy Award nomination and the part of Juliet in Carlo Carlei’s adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet” set for a 2012 release..

WHAT: Share Our Strength is a national nonprofit with the goal of ending childhood hunger in America via donations, volunteer opportunities and creative fund-raisers, such as Taste of the Nation and the Great American Bake Sale.

WHY: “Jeff Bridges introduced me to (Share Our Strength) last year while we were doing press for ‘True Grit,” Steinfeld explains. “It seemed impossible to me that in this amazing country we’d have such a problem. (As the national spokesman for the org’s No Kid Hungry campaign), Jeff thought adding more voices to the movement would help, especially other actors and actresses, musicians, directors and people in the entertainment industry who had a national platform to help Share Our Strength spread awareness. He’s really a model for how a celebrity can support a worthwhile cause, and I was really inspired by his hard work and dedication. Watching how much time he put into helping Share Our Strength made me realize I really had something genuine to offer.”

WHAT’S NEXT: Steinfeld will attend November’s fundraiser, No Kid Hungry Los Angeles Dinner, featuring chefs from the show “Top Chef Masters.”
