GlobalGrind: Chloe Moretz is looking kick ass in the May 2013 issue of Nylon Magazine.
The 16-year-old actress will be starring in the upcoming Carrie remake and although Chloe had to show her dark side for the upcoming horror film, she got back to her cleaned up "girl next door" image for the issue.
Chloe got a chance to talk to the women's lifestyle mag about quite a few topics ranging from her "squeaky clean" image to how she got into the role of a hit-man for the Kick-Ass franchise and of course her role as the jilted high school student, Carrie.
Some of the standout pieces from the interview are:
On the film vs TV debate:
"I always knew I wanted to do movies. The thing with TV is, people almost see you as a family member. You're in their house every week, and you're young and innocent. But if you're 19 or 20, playing 15, and trying to transition into your sexuality, people are going to be like, 'No, no, you're my younger sister!' Whereas for an actor in movies, there's a distance. They have to travel to the theater to see you. Plus, TV is more of a job, and it can become kind of monotonous. I love spontaneity, which is why I love playing a different character every few months."
On playing the potty-mouthed teen Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass:
"We all looked at it and were like, 'Who knows what people might think?' They might be totally offended and never want to hear from me again, or people might love it and go, 'This is the raddest female-empowerment Angelina Jolie-type character for an 11-year-ild girl.' It was a big risk, a really big risk. People were saying to my mom, 'What did you do to your child? You ruined her!' But I was like, 'It was my choice! I wanted to do it!'"
On going method as Carrie:
"I tried a new style of acting that I've never tried before. When I do a crying scene, I'm the type of actor who usually breaks right out of it afterwards, and I'm laughing and being silly. But with Carrie, I wanted to try staying in character and being in that dark space all day. I'm not very serious Method. It's not like I didn't talk to my family or go crazy and not eat, but with the director and the actors I was Carrie all the time on set. It was one of the best experiences I've ever had, but it was one of the darkest, and I'm terrified to see the movie because it's the most vulnerable I've ever been."
On why she's never going to be a bad girl:
"I'm, like, incredibly straight-laced, considering what some 16-year-olds are doing. It's probably because I've gone to nice events with big people there since I was a young girl. Kids my age at school are fighting to get into clubs and be around an open bar, whereas I've had the opportunity to drink or do drugs if I wanted to, and I haven't. I look around me and go, 'God's put me here for a reason. Why would I want to go take a drug or do something that can strip away everything I've worked for?' This business is not peaches and cream, and I've fought tooth and nail to earn this spot. I'm not a girl who's ridden on a last name or lucked into it from getting on one project that blows up. I've worked for 11 years, and I have to keep working, too, because if I sat back on my haunches right now, I could disappear within a month."
