Chloe Moretz (born 10.2.1997)
Chloe Moretz is an American actress, best known for her role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass.
Personal Life & Childhood: Chloe Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to McCoy and Teri Moretz. Her mother is a nurse practitioner and her father is a plastic surgeon. In interviews, she has stated that her family is 'very Christian'. Her elder brother Trevor Duke Moretz is her acting coach and often accompanies her on business when her parents are unable to attend with her.
In 2001, Chloe moved to New York with her mother and her brother Trevor, when he was accepted into a professional performing arts school. It was this that originally sparked her interest in acting. It was when the Moretz family moved to Los Angeles in 2003 that Chloe's own Hollywood career began.
Acting Career: Chloe's first role in Hollywood was playing Violet in two episodes of The Guardian, created by David Hollander. Her debut film role was playing Molly in Heart of the Beholder.
When she landed her second role, in Amityville Horror, with Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George, Chloe Moretz earned herself a Young Artist Award nomination. Following on from the nomination, she started to land a number of guesting roles on TV series, such as My Name Is Earl (starring Jason Lee) and Desperate Housewives. She also landed a role in Big Momma's House 2, starring Martin Lawrence and Nia Long. In addition to this, she also voiced the character of Darby in the animated version of My Friends Tigger and Pooh.
In 2009, Chloe appeared in (500) Days of Summer, starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
2010 saw Chloe Moretz appear in the Matthew Vaughn directed comic book adaptation Kick-Ass, which also starred Nicolas Cage and Aaron Johnson. The script was written by Jane Goldman, who is married to Jonathan Ross and the film was co-produced by Brad Pitt. On its release, many viewers were shocked by the bad language used by the Hit-Girl character, though her performance was also praised by a number of critics. For the film, she trained with Jackie Chan so that she could perform all of her own stunts.
Later in 2010, Moretz also took the lead role in Let Me In, playing a 12 year old vampire. The film was a remake of the Swedish film Let The Right One In. She was also cast as Ann in the psychological thriller The Fields. It was also announced that she will be playing the role of Isabelle in an adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, directed by Martin Scorsese. Chloe has also been announced as the lead role in the film version of Emily the Strange.
Sometimes teenagers show much more maturity than a Kardashian.
Right now, the Kardashians have found themselves in a lot of people's bad books. Chloe Grace Moretz is just the latest to be brutally bashed over social media as Khloe Kardashian tries to humiliate her on Twitter, after the young actress commented on the Kim Kardashian and Taylor Swift situation.

“When will people hiding behind computer screens get tired of calling someone 'fat' or 'masculine’?” she queried. “Does it make you feel good typing your hateful comments? Does it fulfil you in some dark way?”

Moretz says boyfriend Brooklyn is always there to make her feel better when she’s having a bad day.
Chloe Grace Moretz has said her boyfriend, 17-year-old Brooklyn Beckham is a ‘huge support’ to her when she’s feeling low. Speaking to Elle magazine, Moretz also opened up in the insecurities she felt when she was 16, saying she wanted a boob job and a ‘butt reduction’.
Chloe Grace Moretz has praised “supportive” boyfriend Brooklyn Beckham.
“My boyfriend is a huge support,” Moretz said, when asked what she does on a bad day. “I mean, don't get me wrong, I don't need a man for anything, but when I'm feeling bad about myself, he's like, ‘Stop. Look at what you say in interviews. Look at what you stand for. Listen to your own words, because you're as beautiful as you say you are!’”

Moretz says reckons dating is tough when guys have already seen her in sex scenes.
Chloe Grace Moretz has explained in a new interview about how dating can be tough for Hollywood actresses – because of sex scenes.
The 19 year old star, currently promoting comedy sequel Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising, gave an interview to The Edit, the online magazine by Net-A-Porter. She’s currently going out with Brooklyn Beckham, but at the time of the interview she had yet to reveal their dating status.

The super-cute couple attended the premiere of Moretz’s new film Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising together on Monday.
Chloe Grace Moretz and Brooklyn Beckham are officially a couple! The teens were rumoured to have rekindled their relationship back in April but now the news is official after they attended the premiere of Moretz’s new film Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising together in Los Angeles on Monday (May 16).

Speaking to E! News on the red carpet, 19-year-old Moretz said: "Now, it's out. It's done. Get over it. It's real. We're together and that's it!” Brooklyn, 17, is said to have surprised his girlfriend by flying in for the premiere from London.
While it's amusing and sometimes very funny, there's an air of desperation about this sequel to the 2014 breakout hit comedy. The main problem is that, instead of pushing the characters forward in any way, the plot is basically a rehash of the exact same series of events. So the cast and crew rush through it in the hopes that audiences might not notice, throwing in issues like girl power and gay marriage to make it look like they noticed the criticisms of the first movie.
It's been a year or so, and now Mac and Kelly (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) are selling their house to move to the suburbs before the birth their second child. But just as the sale is agreed, a sorority moves in next door, founded by Shelby (Chloe Grace Moretz) in defiance of the usual frat-house rules. They get help from former fraternity leader Teddy (Zac Efron), who's aimless because his best pal Pete (Dave Franco) has just agreed to marry his boyfriend. So Mac and Kelly are worried that the loud parties are going to jeopardise the sale, and when talking with Shelby fails, the stand-off escalates into all-out war. And when the girls turn on him, Teddy swaps sides to help take them down.
The dialogue is packed with hilariously wrong humour, mainly adult gags that are spoken around very young children. The idea of a little girl who chooses a pink dildo as her favourite toy is good for one laugh, but perhaps not the next 10 the filmmakers try to wring from it. Meanwhile, there's a strange exhaustion in the air, as both Teddy and Mac seem tired of all of this nonsense. Efron and Rogen play the roles with impeccable timing, but both seem aware that they've already pushed these characters as far as they possibly can. Byrne has a lot more spark, and provides most of the best laughs. And Moretz shows some skill at spiky silliness.

The 'Neighbors 2' spoke about her changing attitudes to feminism, and about THAT feud with Kim Kardashian.
When ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star yet again broke the internet with her nude selfie in March, the 19 year old Kick-Ass star responded that Kim’s picture wasn’t setting the correct example for young women. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women,” she wrote. “Teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.”
In a feature interview with Glamour magazine, in whose new issue she is the cover star, Moretz was asked about whether she’s changed her mind about the stance she took back then, considering Kardashian’s bitter response and those of others who called her out for being uptight.
Disney Classics are the new black.
So 'The Jungle Book' appears to be getting good critical reception all round; and no wonder with its stunning combination of live action and CGI, not to mention a stellar voiceover cast. It's only the latest in a string of Disney Classics to be re-made though, as that beloved world is being continuously re-visited.
The Jungle Book is in theaters now
As well as 'The Jungle Book', so far we've had 'Snow White and the Huntsman', 'Maleficent', 'Cinderella', 'Hercules', 'Alice In Wonderland'... need we go on? Of course, they're not all derived from the Disney flicks - in fact, most are simply re-boots of the original tale. But there's still a lot more where that came from.

Moretz is standing firm after Kardashian threw some serious shade at her via Twitter after the nude selfie incident.
“I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” 19 year old Moretz had tweeted on Tuesday (March 9th). 35 year old Kardashian brushed this off by replying “Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. Your nylon cover is cute boo.”

Also based on the first in a trilogy of post-apocalyptic teen novels, this thriller feels like it could be a worthy successor to The Hunger Games saga, with its smart story and strong characters. The premise feels remarkably grounded, as it follows a feisty teen while her world is turned upside down by an alien invasion. And Chloe Grace Moretz gives one of her most complex performances to date as a quick, flawed heroine.
The title refers to the stages of invasion, as unseen aliens quietly take over the planet. And then not so quietly. Most of humanity has been killed by disasters or disease, with the survivors waiting for whatever the next wave of attack might be. Before this, Cassie (Moretz) was a normal 16-year-old with a crush on the cute Ben (Nick Robinson). Now she's running for her life, trying to rescue her little brother Sam (Zackary Arthur), who has been whisked to safety by the gung-ho Colonel Vosch (Liev Schreiber) and his military resistance. Along the way, she meets farm boy Evan (Alex Roe), whom she reluctantly trusts mainly because he's such a hunk. Meanwhile, Ben finds himself in Sam's unit in the newly formed child's army Vosch is training to hunt down aliens who have taken human form.
Director Blakeson keeps the pace brisk without rushing past important details. This makes what happens feel unusually believable, and it also allows the actors to add personal touches to their performances. Moretz finds Cassie's innate courage and quick physicality, but nicely balances it with her impulsive decisions and adolescent self-doubt. As in most of these movies, she has to be in a love triangle, but her scenes with both Robinson and Roe offer something a bit more intriguing, mainly because both actors have surprises up their sleeves. There's also a fourth person in this relationship in the form of Maika Monroe's tough-girl fighter Ringer, perhaps the most intriguing character on-screen.
