Carlo Carlei) as Juliet²* ''Film/EndersGame'' (2013) as Petra Arkanian²* ''Anime/WhenMarnieWasThere'' (2015) as Anna Sasaki (voice, English)²* ''Film/BarelyLethal'' (2015) as Megan ²* ''Film/BeginAgain'' (2015) as Violet Mulligan²* ''[[Film/PitchPerfect Pitch Perfect 2]]'' (2015) as Emily²* ''Film/TheEdgeOfSeventeen'' (2016) as Nadine²* ''Pitch Perfect 3'' (2017) as Emily²* ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'' (2018) as [[ComicBook/SpiderGwen Gwen Stacy / Spider-Woman]] (voice)²* ''Film/{{Bumblebee}}'' (2018) as Charlie Watson ²* ''Series/{{Dickinson}}'' (2019 - ) as Emily Dickinson²²!!Discography:²²* ''Haiz'' (EP, 2015; rereleased in 2016 with extra content)²* ''Half Written Story'' (EP, 2020; the first of a two part EP series)²²----²!!Associated tropes:²²* ActionGirl: In ''Film/TrueGrit'', ''Film/EndersGame'', ''Film/BarelyLethal'', ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'' and ''Film/{{Bumblebee}}''.²* ADateWithRosiePalms: The not-so-subtext of "Love Myself". While she stated that it wasn't the intention she was going for, she's perfectly fine with people thinking about it that way.²* CoolLoser: See the above; her characters tend to be 'losers' in their peer group, despite the charm and charisma she brings. Actually TruthInTelevision as Hailee was heavily bullied in school before her acting career took off, to the point she had to switch to homeschooling.²* EndearinglyDorky: Absolutely radiates this in [[Film/PitchPerfect most of]] [[Film/TheEdgeOfSeventeen her film]] [[WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse roles]], [[ and especially in real life]].²* GenkiGirl: She's often prone to playing characters with a great amount of energy and light, much like how she is in real life.²* GiveGeeksAChance: In ''Film/BarelyLethal'', ''Film/TheEdgeOfSeventeen'', ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManIntoTheSpiderVerse'', and ''Film/{{Bumblebee}}'', her character's love interest is an awkward, nerdy guy who's clearly into her as soon as they meet, with her character taking more time to respond. PlayedWith in that her characters in those films are all Adorkable CoolLoser types who are equally, if not ''less'' popular than the geeky love interest, and borders on being a GenderFlip as she's the lead in most of those stories (the exception being the ''Spider-Verse'').²* MixedAncestry: Ashkenazi Jewish, with a quarter African-American and Boholano Filipino ancestry through her grandfather. Her onscreen roles tend to gloss over this entirely, but it's a well-known fact to fans.²* MsFanservice: She's definitely incorporated this into her image, if her social media and concert performances are any indication. She's gotten a lot of compliments about her ShesGotLegs and MaleGaze mentality.²* IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy: "Let Me Go" is all about this.²* StatuesqueStunner: She's 5'8, and is often noted in-universe as attractive. Particularly notable in the ''Pitch Perfect'' films, as she is one of the tallest members of the main cast.²----
