Hailee Steinfeld feels ''very fortunate'' to have a team to ''protect'' her from the dangers of the industry.

The 'Starving' hitmaker is well aware of the struggles of the film and music industry, as highlighted by the #MeToo movement, and feels lucky to have the support of her family and friends from a young age.

She said: ''I think that I had so much incredible support from everyone around me when I was very young. I have had so many people around me to look out for me and protect me. Of course, any territory and any field of work there are inner and outer obstacles, and things you have to go through. I have been very fortunate to have the support of the people around me.''

Meanwhile, Hailee previously revealed her music makes her feel ''vulnerable''.

Asked when fans can expect an album from her, she said: ''I'm so over saying the word 'soon' because I've used it too many damn times. ''I don't even know what it means anymore. I want to put new music out, but ... As an actor, I'm masked by characters, protected by them.

''But as a musician, it's my story, my voice, my face. It's me on that stage talking about that horrible experience I went through and [saying,] 'Here, I'm going to sing about it.' It's such a different kind of vulnerable. To connect with fans, there's pressure in feeling like I have to do things that I'm uncomfortable with, in terms of opening up enough about myself.''
