“I was going to talk about being in control of it, but the issue is, a lot of people don’t feel they have control over what people know about them or find out about them,” she explained. “Some of our most private moments can be somehow publicized or leaked and we have no control over that, which is a tough thing to comprehend.”
But despite the negative side to being a celebrity, Steinfeld said she feels “so fortunate to be in the place that I’m in.”
