    1. What drew you to the role of Charlie in Bumblebee?

    BuzzFeed

    Hailee Steinfeld: I loved the idea of playing a young, female character who is just this normal girl but is brave, and strong, and smart, and just capable of the world.

    2. What sets Bumblebee apart from the previous Transformers movies?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: This film has a lot in it, a lot that I think Transformer fans — of the previous films — will enjoy, and love, and appreciate. This film has so much heart, so much love, and laughter, and it's very character driven. It's got a lot in it that I think you'll like.

    3. If you were a Transformer and could transform into any car or object, what would you transform into?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: I would transform into a puppy so I could be a part of this.

    4. We’re loving “Back To Life” off the Bumblebee soundtrack. When can we expect a full album from you?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: I actually had every intention of putting out an album this year but this movie — Bumblebee — sort of came into this picture and a show called Dickinson that I'm currently working on and finishing up in the new year. Once that's done, I will be finishing what I started on the music front. So, it's all in the works and I can't wait to show you!

    5. When you make new music, who is the first person you play it for?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: Oh! It depends...it depends on what the song is about, who it's about. I have a handful of my closest friends that I'll play my songs for and, of course, my parents. It kind of depends!

    6. What music have you been listening to lately?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: I've been listening to a wide variety of music — I feel like I always am! With Bumblebee, the film takes place in the '80s and has an incredible '80s soundtrack, so I got to immerse myself in that world of music for a while. I love pop music, so I listen to pop music every single day, and currently Christmas music, duh!

    7. Who would be your dream movie co-star and who would be your dream music collaboration?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: I feel like Diane Keaton came to mind, but Zach Galifianakis also came to mind. Dream music collaboration? He's not gonna think I'm serious, but it's the truth, Benny Blanco... or Benny Bronco, if you will.

    8. What do you think Emily Junk has been up to since Pitch Perfect 3?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: Whoa, Emily Junk! She's worth giving a call, right? I would assume she is the head of a new social club. I'm sure she's doing a lot of writing. Probably just living life to the fullest, probably hasn't stopped smiling since we last saw her.

    9. Would you return for a Pitch Perfect 4?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: I would absolutely return for Pitch Perfect 4! I know that when we were doing the third one, we spoke about where the heck we would go from here. Maybe space? Maybe we're all grandmothers by the next Pitch Perfect? Who knows! But yes, I'd love to be a part of it.

    10. If you were stranded on an island with only one of your Pitch Perfect co-stars, who would you pick? Why?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: Ester Dean, Cynthia Rose. She never fails to make me laugh and I feel like she could figure out some way to get us off.

    11. What’s a beauty, style, or makeup tip that has changed your life?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: Under eye concealer [laughs]. Game-changing, life-changing!

    12. What’s one tradition over the holidays that you make sure to do every year?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: Honestly, for me, holidays are all about being with family and eating a ton of food. The last couple of years I've been on the road so we've created new traditions just because, you know, life holds different things for you each year. So, just being with my family, having a little bit of time off, and lots of food is involved, always.

    13. What are you most excited for in 2019?

    BuzzFeed

    HS: 2019! Well, there is so much in store for 2019. I'm very excited about my music. That has been in the works, like I said, for a while and long time coming. So, looking forward to that! I can't wait for fans to see this movie, that's at the end of this year, but we'll see where that leads us into the next year. Music, travel, fans, performing, all that — I am very much looking forward to 2019!
