In case you missed it, Hailee Steinfeld and Douglas Booth star in the new adaptation of Shakespeare's classic tale of 'star crossed lover's' Romeo and Juliet, set to hit theaters October 11th.
So how did Hailey feel about taking on a role where she'd be falling in the footsteps of many great actresses? She dished to Variety:
“You kind of have to take it as any other role because I feel like, if I made it a thing that I was a part of re-making this classic or playing this iconic role, I would sort of lose sight of the work.”
