Hailee Steinfeld started a swear jar for True Grit and made a fortune

Hailee Steinfeld is a bonafide star now but she got her break when she was very young and made lots of money from her foulmouthed costars too

Long before she appeared in the MCU and was selling millions of records as a popstar Hailee Steinfeld found her feet in Hollywood at a young age appearing in the Coen Brothers remake of True Grit. It turns out that she made plenty of money from that film but only because her costars couldnt stop swearing. The young actor is now best known for playing the MCU character Kate Bishop in the Marvel series Hawkeye on the streaming service Disney Plus.

But long ago at the age of 13 she made waves by earning an Oscar nomination for her role in True Grit the 2010 Western movie starring Jeff Bridges Josh Brolin and Matt Damon. Appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show in 2021 Steinfeld revealed she started a swear jar on set and walked away with lots of cash as a result. When asked if the rest of the cast were careful to mind their manners around their young costar Steinfeld replied Oh yes did they! I very quickly started a swear jar on that. Yeah I was 13 and there were a lot of curse words flying around. It was $5 for the Fword and a dollar for any other word. And I was just raking in the cash.

We can totally imagine the likes of Brolin and Bridges just throwing bad language around and then grimacing when they have to put their hardearned cash in the jar. Still after appearing in some of the best movies of all time were sure they have plenty to spare. Steinfeld was appearing on the chat show alongside her costar from the Hawkeye TV series Jeremy Renner.

We wonder how much money you could make from a swear jar on a Marvel movie particularly an Avengersscale teamup superhero movie.
