Debut “True Grit” actress Hailee Steinfeld called in to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” Wednesday morning and excitedly relieved the process of how she snagged the Oscar nominated role, her response to being nominated, as well as how she laid it down on set with a “swear jar.”

At only 14 years old, it’s no surprise Hailee’s response to how she’s taking her recent success is simply “it’s incredible;” furthering, “it’s so weird to think just a year ago I was auditioning for the role…and now I’m here, it’s really insane.” What we think is possibly even more insane is her guts to charge people like Jeff Bridges on set for swearing!

Hailee explained “because everyone was cursing so much, my mom and teacher didn’t want me to start cursing…so I’d charge five dollars for the F-word, and one dollar for any other words.”
