Chloe Grace Moretz's love life inspires her movie roles.

The 17-year-old actress - who is dating Brooklyn Beckham - says she often taps into her own romantic life to draw inspiration for her various characters.

Speaking to OK! magazine, the teen explained: ''Everyone says you have to draw from a modicum of self-experience for a role - love, in particular, when you're creating a love story. Not every relationship is the same, not every love that find is the same.

''Every kind that you get from another person - there are different types of it, and you learn through each relationship there are many different ways you can love someone.''

Meanwhile, the teenager, who has been acting since the age of five, admits it's difficult to balance her career and her personal life and she often goes months without seeing her friends and family.

The 'If I Stay' movie star added: ''We're in a job where we spend 11 months of the year not at home so you have to understand what you're getting yourself into.

''I've had my best friends since I was nine years old and they're kind of like, 'You're my best friend but we text more than we actually see each other face to face.' But they're still my best friends.''
