Taylor Swift's famous girl squad has been receiving a lot of hate from outsiders as of late, but according to one of its members, Hailee Steinfeld, the tight-knit group is closer than ever.
During an interview on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw on Wednesday, the "Starving" singer revealed Swift's BFF crew, which also includes the likes of Gigi Hadid, Cara Delevingne, Selena Gomez and Karlie Kloss, keep in touch via a WhatsApp group chat.
"We try to [speak a lot]," Steinfeld, 19, explained. "It's so crazy being all over the world at the same time and rarely being in the same place at the same time. But it's so much fun to stay in contact and find each other along the way and all get caught up."
The girls all have busy schedules and frequently travel for work, so it's no surprise that most of the time, getting together in person happens when the group is all glammed up, attending the same red carpet premiere or a glitzy awards show.
"When we are all together, it does feel like a big reunion," the True Grit star said. "It normally happens to be when we are all dressed up and look a lot nicer than we normally do, so it looks a lot cooler than it is."
Steinfeld also revealed that the reason they've become so close over the years is because they all understand each other, especially when it comes to balancing a fun lifestyle with their highly successful careers as models, singers and actresses.
"It’s nice to have people that get what it is that you’re doing," Steinfeld admitted. "I went through a period of time when some of my friends didn’t understand that what I was doing was more important than calling them back. So, it's nice to now have someone that understands and does the same thing that you're doing."
Steinfeld's interview comes just one day after Demi Lovato slammed Swift's squad in the November issue of Glamour magazine.
"To be honest, and this will probably get me in trouble, I don't see anybody in any sort of squad that has a normal body," Lovato told the glossy. "It's kind of this false image of what people should look like. And what they should be like, and it's not real…. It's not realistic."
