In the magazine, the actress (who was nominated for an Oscar at age 14 for her role in True Grit) opens up about being a normal teenage girl and good friends with Taylor Swift; She and Swift, 24, do everything together from bake holiday cookies to vacation in Rhode Island in matching outfits.

When asked about the “22” singer, Steinfeld shares: “She’s an amazing friend. I always get the, ‘Tell us something nobody knows [about Swift] question.’ And it’s like, we both respect each other tremendously, but we choose to keep our friendship out of the public eye. She’s a really great person and an inspiration to me and many others.”
