Hailee Steinfeld is one busy 18-year-old. Not only is she promoting her new indie drama Ten Thousand Saints, but she also just released her debut single "Love Myself" and she also had a party to attend earlier in the week.

And not just any party.

Steinfeld was one of the lucky ones invited to Kylie Jenner's big 18th birthday party blowout.

"She's great!" Steinfeld told me last night at a special screening of Ten Thousand Saints in L.A. "The party was so much fun. It was a good time. I'm still reminiscing about it. I just had a great time. I saw a lot of my friends and we did a lot of dancing."

Speaking of famous friends, Steinfeld admits she was a bit hesitant sharing her music with her bestie Taylor Swift.

"I'm nervous to play her anything," Steinfeld said. "I'm nervous to show her any of my movies, but yeah, she's very supportive.

"[Music] is always been something that I wanted to do," she continued. "It's always been a part of my plan and it's always been a matter of when and now is when."

Ten Thousand Saints is a come-of-age film set in New York City in the 1980s. Steinfeld plays a pregnant teen and had to spend most of filming wearing a fake pregnancy belly.

"I put it on during the fitting and I was like, 'Oh, my God, this is so weird—let me send a picture to my friends!'" Steinfeld said. "But then it was weird. I  was then sort of uncomfortable and felt very vulnerable. It was very annoying because I could barely bend down and tie my own shoes. I  felt useless. It was very interesting. I was living my very own PSA."

Directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the Saints cast also includes Steinfeld's Ender's Game co-star Asa Butterfield, Emile Hirsch, Ethan Hawke, Avan Jogia and Emily Mortimer.

Ten Thousand Saints is in theaters and on demand on Aug. 14.
