Chloe Moretz Biography

Chloe Moretz (born 10.2.1997)

Chloe Moretz is an American actress, best known for her role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass.

Chloe Moretz: 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.

Chloe Moretz: 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.
