We find out the facts about the star of KICK-ASS 2
KICK-ASS 2 finally hits Irish cinemas this week, and we are very excited about Chloë Grace Moretz reprising the foul-mouthed role of Hit Girl. Such is our excitement that we needed to know more about the actress, so we’ve pulled together ten things you need to know about Chloë Grace Moretz.
Moretz prefers to be called Chloë Grace, not just Chloë. …Good to know!
When she first played the foul-mouthed, violent vigilante Hit Girl, Chloë Grace Moretz was just 11 years old. …She said if she ever said any of the words from the film at home, she would be grounded for years.
Also in 2010, Chloë Grace Moretz played a vampire child in LET ME IN, the remake of the Swedish film, LET THE RIGHT ONE IN. …Not bad for the girl who voice acted in 31 episodes of MY FRIENDS TIGGER & POOH.
Chloë Grace voiced the entire character of Penny in Bolt before Disney hired Miley Cyrus to do the part. …It’s a tough world out there, kid.
Moretz’s breakout role was in THE AMITYVILLE HORROR, but due to her young age, she was not allowed to see the movie at the premiere. …We wonder if, at the age of 16, she has seen it now…?
Chloë Grace is known for playing darker roles. At New York Comic-Con, she said this is because her home life is so supportive, that it challenges her to play the more messed up characters. …Moretz also keeps her work and home lives separate, and doesn’t bring her friends on set or to premieres.
Moretz played Jack Donaghey’s nemesis in three episodes of 30 ROCK; the manipulative Kaylie Hooper. …And she was definitely a match for Alec Baldwin in their scenes together.
Moretz played Tom’s younger sister in (500) DAYS OF SUMMER. …Another role in which she was wise beyond her years.
After Jim Carrey publicly denounced KICK-ASS 2 for it’s violence, Moretz jumped to the film’s defence, saying “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” …A clever point, but it seems Carrey has nailed his colours to the mast.
Chloë Grace next appears in the remake of CARRIE, which is released in Irish cinemas later this year …Of course, Moretz plays the title character. I mean, of course!
KICK-ASS 2 is released in Irish cinemas on August 14th
