Hailee Steinfeld: I Found This Strength In The Characters

Posted: Updated:

When Kevin Costner was on Good Day L.A. last week, he had nothing but wonderful things to say about Hailee Steinfeld, who plays his estranged teenaged daughter in the new movie, "3 Days To A Kill."

"She was a total pleasure to work with.  Sometimes you have to talk things through and sometimes you don't, and that's called chemistry when you don't," said Kevin.  "And Hailee and I were very free with each other, and I just really enjoyed that.  And when she's on screen she really pops.  She's really good."

Now find out what Hailee has to say about Kevin when she joins Steve Edwards and Marla Tellez on Good Day L.A.
