Is Hailee Steinfeld dating Irish One Directioner Niall Horan and more to the point do we care?
Don't you love when celebs whine about a lack of privacy, yet are hell bent on using social media to the max?
Take Hailee Steinfeld, the American actress/singer who’s had a hit or two and is besties with Irish One Directioner Niall Horan. She turned 21 last month and Niall wished her a happy b’day – on Instagram of course, calling her “the loveliest person on the planet and one of my best friends….Love ya Hails.”
Those kind words must mean they’re dating, right? A scribe from Us magazine grabbed Hailee on the SAG Awards red carpet last Sunday and asked her just that. The response? Usual celeb gobbledygook.
"I feel so lucky that [my fans] care enough about me to know what I’m doing every second of every day, but I think that sometimes it’s hard for people in general to realize that there are boundaries to a person’s life and personal life," she said when asked about Niall.
Hailee, of course, said she’s a "very private person" but also noted that "I do love that I have the opportunity to share with them what I’m comfortable with and they’re there to listen and support me."
Is that a yes or a no? Or more to the point, does anyone really give a hoot?
