Chloe Grace Moretz - Chloe Grace Chloe Moretz Disagrees With Jim Carrey Over Kick-ass 2 Violence

Chloe Grace Moretz is adamant she respects Jim Carrey's decision to bow out of promotional work for their new film Kick-Ass 2, but disagrees with his opinion on the violence in the movie.

The funnyman has refused to take part in a publicity campaign for the film, in which he plays a vigilante named Colonel Stars and Stripes, as he felt he could no longer support the project following a school shooting in Connecticut last year (12).

Carrey cited the movie's "level of violence" for his decision, but 16-year-old Moretz, who plays a costumed assassin in the movie, insists his fears are misguided.

She tells Britain's The Sun, "It's a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn't go to see Pocahontas because you are going to think you are a Disney princess.

"If you are that easily swayed, you might see The Silence of the Lambs and think you are a serial killer. It's a movie and it's fake, and I've known that since I was a kid... I don't want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do."

She adds of Carrey, "Each to their own. I know the movie I made and it's all good and I respect his decision."

A young gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School in December (12), sparking a fevered debate in America over weapons laws and whether violent movies influence the behaviour of disturbed individuals.

Chloe Moretz Is Definitely Not Worrying About Relationships Or Dating: "That's Not My Style" 4306283 News

Unlike most 17 year-old girls, Chloe Grace Moretz's life doesn't revolve around who is dating and who, and jumping in and out of teen relationships. In fact, the 'Kick Ass' star, who is one of Hollywood's most promising young actresses, is too focused on her blossoming movie career to let any of that distract her.

Moretz isn't interested in dating or relationships

"It's a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly," the teen star tells the new issue of FLARE magazine. "I don't want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, 'cause I'm 17 and I shouldn't have to."

Moretz strongly believes in this way of thinking, and on several occasions she tries to encourage her close friends to do that same, but her efforts are often useless.

"I'm like, Dude, you're wasting away your entire high-school years, and now you're going to waste away your college years," she explains to the mag. "You're going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you're going to get married...and then you're dead!"

Adding, "So you lived your life in a relationship! That's not my style."

Another one of Moretz's interests is the fashion industry, and although she likes her wardrobe to be "fun and interesting," she feels it is important for people to refrain from judging someone just from their dress sense. "If someone wears a crazy outfit, they're automatically a crazy person," she continued. "If you wear a tame outfit, you're automatically a prude."

Moretz also urges people not to judge a book by its cover

Moretz is also exposed to the judgement of others when the lingering paparazzi snap a photo of herself with another male friend. "When you're with someone who's just your friend, then [the paparazzi] take photos, but when you're out with your boyfriend, they never find out," she says. "It's like, 'You guys are so dumb; you're missing your opportunity!'"

The September issue of FLARE will be available to purchase from August 11th.

Battle Of The Tear-Jerkers: Will 'If I Stay' Prove As Popular As 'The Fault In Our Stars'? 4236639 News

In its opening weekend Shailene Woodley’s new film The Fault in our Stars has taken over $48 million. Directed by Josh Boone and starring Woodley and Willem Defoe, the book is based on the young adult novel of the same name. Centred around Hazel, a 16-year-old cancer patient, played by Woodley, and the relationship she forms with 17-year-old Augustus Waters, an amputee and ex-basketball player, the film is widely considered to be the winner of tear-jerker of the year.

If I Stay The Fault In Our Stars Shailene Woodley has been highly praised for her performance as Hazel in The Fault in our Stars

Woodley has been praised for her performance while the film on the whole has won over the critics. Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers wrote in his review of the film: “It’s a fresh, lively love story, brimming with humor and heartbreak, and lived to the heights by Shailene Woodley, a sublime actress with a resume that pretty much proves she’s incapable of making a false move on camera.”

The film currently holds an 82% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a surprisingly high score for a chick flick based on a young adult novel. There’s definitely something about The Fault in our Stars that has won over critics and moviegoers.

Before Boone and co get too comfortable with their tear jerker no.1 spot they should look into the film that could be a serious contender for the top spot. Due for release in August this year, If I Stay is yet another film adaption of a young adult novel, but unlike your action flicks like The Hunger Games, Divergent and The Maze Runner, it’s more along the lines of The Fault in our Stars AKA another one that’s bound to tug at your heartstrings.

Based on the 2009 novel by Gayle Forman, If I Stay follows the story of Mia, a 17-year-old girl involved in a car crash with her family. While in a coma Mia has an out-of-body experience where she sees her friends and family, as well as Adam, her handsome musician boyfriend, gather around her bedside. Seeing memories of her life as well as the life she could leave behind, Mia must decided whether to wake up to a life that she had never imagined would be hers, or let herself die.

If I Stay The Fault In Our Stars If I Stay stars 17 year old Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia

Starring Kick-Ass’s Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia, the If I Stay trailer is already gathering a lot of attention. One YouTube commenter wrote, “this brings me to tears. i have to read the book.”

We’re recommending buying a box of Kleenex before going to see either movies.  

Do you think If I Stay will usurp the tear-jerker top spot from The Fault in our Stars?

Could Denzel Washington Be Back in the Oscars Hunt With 'The Equalizer'? 4227012 News

We love seeing Denzel Washington getting his bad ass action star routine on and it looks like The Equalizer is going to give us just that opportunity. Based on the television series which ran between 1985 and 1989, the film adaption of The Equalizer promises to show Denzel at his fastest, finest (in every sense of the word) and most furious, as he takes on the Russian mafia to help a young hooker, played by Chloe Grace Moretz.  The role was originally thought to go to Russell Crowe, although he was replaced by Washington.

The Equalizer
Denzel Washington seems to be on top form in his upcoming movie The Equalizer

Washington’s character, Robert McCall, is an ex-intelligence officer with a Guy-Richie-Sherlock-Holmes-style ability to pre-plan an attack in his mind and carry it out with precision and (near) perfect timing. The Equalizer looks jam-packed full of action and a brooding Denzel, who just doesn’t seem to age.

MORE: Denzel Washington pays tribute to Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter

Although action appears to be Washington’s favourite genre, he’s also mixed in a few great character studies over the years. He’s also managed to merge the two on occasion and it looks as though The Equalizer will have a nice balance of action and character development. Washington’s last movie, 2013’s 2 Guns, was met with mixed reviews. Corey Hall of the Metro Times described it as “Generic, by-the-numbers buddy-action,” and a “forgettable project.”

However, his project prior to 2 Guns, Flight, was widely praised and earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. Appearing as Whip Whitaker, an old school airline pilot with a drinking problem, who manages to miraculously save his plane from crashing, Washington’s performance was unanimously praised. The praise he received for the role echoed the acclaim he received for his Oscar-winning performance as Rubin Carter in 1999’s The Hurricane.

While Flight was successful, Washington’s 2010 project Book of Eli received mixed reviews. While the late, great Roger Ebert gave the film 3/4 stars and described it as “very watchable,” adding “You won’t be sorry you went,” reviews on the whole were poor.

Washington has certainly brought out a mixed bag of movies over the past few years, but we have high hopes for The Equalizer and it looks as though he’s back on top form. As James Plath wrote in his review for Washington’s 2010 action movie Unstoppable, “Washington has these films down to a science by now, and it’s fun to watch a consummate professional do his thing.”

In "Clouds Of Sils Maria" Kristen Stewart And Juliette Binoche Dive Deep Into The Psychology Of Fame And Age 4218747 News

If you follow Kristen Stewart’s career with the irrational passion that this writer does, you’ll no doubt have already seen the trailer for her new movie (well, technically, Juliette Binoche’s new movie) Clouds of Sils Maria. And you will have cheered.

Look at our girl, moving past the unfortunate cloud of Twilight fame to act in a serious, psychological film. We couldn’t be more proud. If you’re not quite as obsessive and have not seen the trailer just yet, you can check out out below.

Watch the trailer for The Hills of Sils Maria below.

Stewart plays Val, the personal assistant of ageing Euro starlet Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche), as the latter faces a turbulent time in personal her life and has to make a decision on a crucial role for her career. Maria is offered a starring role in a revival of the play that made her famous two decades earlier. But while then she played Sigrid, a chaotic young woman, who fascinates the elder Helena and eventually pushes her to suicide, this time around, she is offered the elder role, while Sigrid will go to Jo-Ann (Chloe Grace Moretz). The role and Maria’s questionable relationship with Val combine and force her to face the passage of time and come to terms with age and maturity.

The casting is a stroke of genius and it will be interesting to see Stewart and Moretz acting opposite the larger-than-life presence of Binoche, as well as tackle the questions posed by fame and infamy – particularly for Stewart, whose private life and personality have been under constant scrutiny more than most. According to the LA Times, Stewart was originally offered the role of Jo-Ann, but turned it down, in order to distance her public persona from her character – a completely unknown, somewhat reclusive young woman.

New trailers this week include two dramas about young musicians. If I Stay is about a gifted cellist who's in a life-changing car crash. It stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley, Liana Liberato and Mireille Enos, opens in August and looks pretty warm and wrenching. Watch 'If I Stay' Trailer.

And from Once writer-director John Carney, Begin Again is about a young singer-songwriter trying to make it in Manhattan. Out in July, it looks lively and energetic, and stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld, James Corden and musicians Adam Levine, CeeLo Green and Mos Def. Watch 'Begin Again' Trailer.

But the biggest trailer of the week was an epic new view of X-men: Days of Future Past, the whizzy time-travel blockbuster that combines the cast of First Class with the original trilogy. It looks pretty mind-bending, and very exciting, and opens in just a few weeks. Watch 'X-men: Days of Future Past' Trailer.

Jersey Boys

And finally, we also got our first look at Clint Eastwood's film of the hit Broadway play Jersey Boys, the stylish, classics-filled story of the turbulent rise to fame of the iconic pop group The Four Seasons in 1960s New Jersey. Christopher Walken leads the cast for the film, which is out in June. Watch 'Jersey Boys' Trailer.

A Week In News: Avril Breaks Windows, 'The Hobbit' Gets A New Name, And Lupita Is Beautiful (Duh) 4167781 News

Lupita Nyong'o

People's "Most Beautiful": Lupita Nyong'o is beautiful? Tell us something we didn't know! The 12 Years a Slave star was honoured this week for her natural beauty and bang-on style with People magazine's "Most Beautiful" prize. Sure, the award isn't as special as say, her Academy Award but goes to show that 2014 is the year of the Lupita for sure with filmmakers, fashion houses and fans falling at her feet. Need inspiration? We've compiled a list of her top red carpet looks here. And what was that about a role in the new Jungle Book movie?

'The Hobbit' Name Change: It's a bold thing for a director to change the name of a movie but the third and final 'Hobbit' movie has received a make-over from 'There And Back Again' to 'The Battle of the Five Armies.' Find out Jackson's reasoning for the swap here. The grandiose new title brings visions of the predictably epic battle between the goblins and dwarves, elves, men, and the majestic giant eagles at the foot of the Lonely Mountain. Expect awesomeness: here are our three predictions for the new movie.

Peaches' Funeral: "#RIPPeaches" said the world on Monday as the former TV presenter and daughter of Bob Geldof was laid to rest. It's still not yet known how the 25 year-old suddenly and unexpectedly died at home on the 7th April whilst her baby son played nearby but it is hoped that imminent toxicology results will provide answers. S.C.U.M star and husband Thomas Cohen joined others in paying a special tribute to Peaches with music and memories. All the details here.

Avril Lavigne

Avril's 'Hello Kitty': "My ears! It burns!" was the collective cry issued by the world on Wednesday when pop star Avril Lavigne dropped her new single and music video, 'Hello Kitty.' Hear it here and now (if you're absolutely sure). Taken from her new eponymous album, the song is a series of squeaks and squawks from Avril before a generic dubstep drop. An ode to the kitsch and quirky side of Japanese culture, the music video has attracted accusations of racism due to the dead-eyed, identically-dressed Asian dancers and flagrant use of stereotypes. Check out Avril (and Japan's) response to the uproar.

Bryan Singer Takes Action: Bryan Singer has taken the decision to distance himself from the promotion of upcoming action movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, as he battles the allegations of sex abuse made against him and other by one Michael Egan. Get up to date on those claims here. The director has blasted Egan's claims as "sick and twisted" and plans to counter-sue to clear his name. Singer has an alibi who says he wasn't in Hawaii when Egan claims the rape occurred, but will this hold up? Read our analysis here.

Marc Anthony Cleans Up: No, not his house as his hefty $400K bill for domestic help shows, but at the Billboard Latin Music Awards where Marc Anthony picked up a slew of trophies - 10 in total - for his latest album, 3.0. Find out which awards he won. The former hubbie of J.Lo has been credited with reviving interest in salsa music with his chart-topping new sound, which saw him placed as the jewel in the crown of an extravagant awards show. But what will this mean for the Latin Grammys?

Jay Z

Jay Z Extorted: Jay Z has become the victim of extortion after a series of the rapper's unheard recordings were held to ransom by Chauncey Mahan, a former Roc-A-Fella records employee, who decided he wanted to raise some quick and questionable cash. Threatening to auction of the tapes, Mahan wanted $100K but reportedly settled for $75K. They arranged the deal...and then the cops rocked up. Find out what happened next.

Video Of The Week - 'If I Stay' Trailer: Got those hankies at the ready? Seems like it's the year of the sad teen romance movie: following in the footsteps of June's The Fault In Our Stars, If I Stay will be released to make us cry all over again. Check out the trailer here. Mia (Chloe Grace Moretz) is a talented musician who falls in love with rocker Adam (Jamie Blackley) before she is involved in a tragic car crash. Watching her own body in a hospital bed, Mia undergoes an out-of-body experience as she decides whether to fight to return to life. Find out more about the film here.

After falling in love with the budding rockstar and local cool kid Adam (Blackley), Mia is involved in a horrific car crash that kills the rest of her family and leaves her in a coma.

Tackling adult issues such as love and the meaning of life, the story sees Mia deciding whether to fight herself back to life to be with the one she loves or succumb to death and reunite with her parents. The drama is directed by R.J. Cutler ('The September Issue') and written by Shauna Cross ('What to Expect When You're Expecting').
