Is Hailee Steinfeld Jewish?

Hailee Steinfeld

Well, to make a long story short, Hailee Steinfeld is not Jewish!

Since Hailee Steinfeld's mother is not Jewish, and in Orthodox Judaism and Conservative Judaism, those with a Jewish mother (or those who underwent a halakhic conversion) are considered Jewish, then that makes her not Jewish. Though she is not Jewish, Her father is Jewish , and by Reform Judaism and Reconstructionist Judaism, who accept both matrilineal (by mother) and patrilineal (by father) descent views, she is considered Jewish.

Hailee Steinfeld (whose full birth name is Hailee Steinfeld) was born on December 11, 1996 in Los Angeles, California.

She is known for her portrayal of Mattie Ross in the 2010 film True Grit, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role and a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
