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.
She was called 'too big' while filming a movie with her onscreen lover.
Body-shaming seems to be a common struggle for young celebrities, especially in Hollywood. Chloe Grace Moretz revealed that she was even shamed for her size by a male co-star on set, something that left her very upset as she was only 15-years-old at the time.

The 20-year-old actress has always been a strong advocate for self-love despite the fact that she was once herself a victim of body-shaming in the world of impossible beauty standards that is Hollywood. She didn't make it clear where she experienced this kind of abuse from, but it was only 5 years ago.

Chloe Grace Moretz hit out at the marketing campaign for 'Red Shoes & 7 Dwarfs', a film in which she stars, after it was alleged to be body-shaming.
American actress Chloe Grace Moretz has hit out at the marketing surrounding her own animated Snow White film, saying she’s “appalled and angry” over a promotional poster that engages in body-shaming.
The 20 year old star, who provides the voice of Snow White in the new South Korean animated film Red Shoes & 7 Dwarfs, released a series of statement on Twitter after a billboard for the film was accused of being derogatory and fat-shaming.
“What if Snow White was no longer beautiful and the 7 dwarfs not so short?” the poster read, with an image of the classic fairy-tale heroine, tall and thin, next to a shorter, heavier one.
Moretz took to Twitter to post a string of messages imploring people to think about the effects their anonymous comments might have.
Chloe Grace Moretz has taken the fight to the Twitter trolls, calling on those who make judgmental comments about people’s bodies to come out from behind their anonymity or to shut up for good.
The 19 year old actress took to her own Twitter account on Tuesday (June 28th) to blast trolls who make disparaging comments about celebrities – or indeed anybody else – by suggesting there might be something wrong with people who find pleasure in it.
“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?”

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.
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.”

Libby Day is a fragile and unemployed woman struggling to get away from the demons of her past. As a child of just 7, she bore witness to the violent murder of her mother and two sisters and even stood up in court to accuse her older brother Ben of the crimes. People were happy to take her word for it when it was unearthed that he was involved in Satanic activity, but now more than 20 years on the whole trauma is finally back for a visit with consequences no-one could've foreseen. Broke after living off charity funds all her life, she readily accepts a cash payment to make an appearance at a meeting of the Kill Club; a group specialising in murder mysteries and who have a particular interest in the case of her family - namely because they do not believe her brother was the killer. While sceptical of their thoughts, she soon agrees to help them pick apart what happened, re-visiting her memories of that fateful night and even seeing her brother for the first time since his trial.

Cassie Sullivan is only 16-years-old but her fighting spirit and courage has left her as one of the only survivors on a demolished Earth. The world has been taken over by alien forces known only as The Others, and they have launched a strategic attack on the planet in order to gain ownership. First came the darkness as the mothership wiped all power from the globe; the second wave brought total devastation in the cities, flooding everything in sight; and with the third wave came an airborne infection so deadly it took out whole nations in months. It wasn't long before they launched their invasion, killing any survivors and possessing human beings as hosts to walk among people in secret. Now what's left of the world is preparing for what may be the most apocalyptic wave of all, but the strongest people have survived and they're not ready to give up their home just yet. Cassie knows to trust no-one, but when she meets another apparent survivor, she knows she has to put her faith in him if she wants to find her missing brother.

Libby Day is a young woman, still permanently scarred from the events of her childhood. As a 7-year-old girl living in Kansas, she witnessed the brutal slaughter of her family, only weeks after discovering a bizarre interest of her brother Ben's and evidence that he practiced Satanism. After she accused Ben, then 16-years-old, of murder, he was locked up for life and her name went down in crime history. It left her with money from a charitable fund and royalities from her autobiography, but now in her early 30s she's completely broke. Soon though she meets Lyle Wirth, a member of a ghoulish group named The Kill Club, full of crime obsessed wannabe detectives who enjoy solving vicious crimes. They offer her money to help them solve what really happened when she was a girl, because hardly any of them believe her brother was the perpetrator of the massacre. She's sure it was him, but now she's forced to return to that time in her life and remember exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the tragedy - and that gets even more complicated when she finally visits Ben in prison.
