CosmopolitanHaley Lu Richardson on ‘Five Feet Apart’ and What It’s Really Like to Work with Cole Sprouse: This March, Haley Lu Richardson and Cole Sprouse will surely tug at your heartstrings with the release of their new film, Five Feet Apart. They play Stella and Will, two teens who fall in love while dealing with their respective battles with cystic fibrosis.

Since making a name for herself in 2013 with a recurring role on ABC Family’s Ravenswood and playing Hailee Steinfeld’s BFF in The Edge of Seventeen, Richardson has continued to pave her own way in Hollywood. Her recent co-stars have included James McAvoy (Split), John Cho (Columbus), and Regina Hall (Support the Girls), and she’s only just getting started. Her dream role? “I want to bring back dance movies, bring back the dancer-actor, the double threat, because I can’t sing,” Richardson tells Cosmopolitan. “I want to tell stories about dancers and let dance be a way of expression and storytelling in a way that’s perfected and taken seriously.

Until then, Richardson has her plate full with work and oh, planning for a wedding that might not happen for a while. In 2018, Richardson and her longtime beau, Jane the Virgin actor Brett Dier, announced their engagement after Richardson popped the question. “We’ve been together for seven years. We just want to take our time. We’re still not used to the word fiancé. It’s so pretentious in saying it. Neither of us are used to it. We still call each other boyfriend and girlfriend. We’re just engaged. And I love Brett. And we’ll get married one day.

On working with her fiancé, Brett Dier, on the Cosmo shoot:
We’ve never done a photo shoot together but I loved it. I honestly get so weird because I don’t know how to pose. I’m not a model and also it’s really hard for me to take myself seriously. Brett’s like that too. We both kind of just screwed around the whole time and laughed and did weird poses. I picked his nose, I think, in one of the pictures.

On a typical date night:
We went through a Skip Bo phase, it’s the best game in the world. I’m pretty sure it’s for 2 to 12 year-olds but we went through a huge phase for a year and a half where we played that every single night when we weren’t working. And now we’re in a Scrabble phase, we sit by the fire in our house and play Scrabble on the floor. Neither of us really know how to spell that well, so we just spell really small words. Once in a while I’ll put on makeup and he’ll wear shoes and pants and we’ll go out for dinner. But that’s pretty rare.

NY Post: Haley Lu Richardson takes down Nazis in ‘Operation Finale’

NY Post — Growing up in Arizona, Haley Lu Richardson never had much interaction with Israel’s Mossad, or infamous Nazis for that matter.

Yet her new — and best — role yet is one she was born to play.

In “Operation Finale,” out Wednesday, Richardson plays Sylvia Hermann, a real life 16-year-old girl who, through her relationship with Klaus Eichmann, the son of Adolf Eichmann, helped Israeli agents capture one of the major organizers of the Holocaust, who was living comfortably in Buenos Aires in 1960.

In 1956, Hermann unknowingly befriended Eichmann’s son Klaus in Buenos Aires, where their family was hidings. With the help of her father, a blind half-Jewish German who had been imprisoned in a concentration camp, she came to realize Adolf’s true identity. Using Sylvia’s physical description of Adolf, her father sent the information to Israeli agents, leading to the war criminal’s prosecution and subsequent death by hanging.

I was super excited to have gotten to be a part of a historically accurate, true story that was so important,” Richardson said. “Since there wasn’t so much about her, I tried to put myself in her shoes,” Richardson, 23, told The Post during a photo shoot at Essex House. “She finds out she’s in love with the son of one of the most evil people in the world who’s doing all these terrible things.

In real life, Sylvia used her closeness to Eichmann family to help the Israelis confirm Eichmann’s identity. “She was so brave,” the actress said. And so was Richardson. At age 16, she packed her bags and moved from Phoenix to Los Angeles — by herself. “I was watching the Disney Channel, watching these kids my age, and I thought, ‘I could do that,’” Richardson said.

Despite only having community theater under her belt, her parents — her mother is a graphic designer; her father, an architect — supported their daughter as she chased her dreams. It paid off. In the film, she stars alongside Hollywood heavyweight Ben Kingsley, who plays Eichmann. “Everything was falling apart in her life and she still had the strength to do something for the greater good,” Richardson added.

Meanwhile, Richardson’s personal life is a bit more stable than the character she plays. In March, she became engaged to actor Brett Dier, who plays Michael on the TV series “Jane the Virgin.” She also came up with her own Hollywood philosophy: “When things aren’t going well, I have to remember the good things that are going well, and I have to remember I worked hard to get there.
