Chloe Grace Moretz Remembers Co-Star Christopher Lee

Film-industry veterans and fans are mourning Thursday the death of prolific British actor Christopher Lee, best known for his roles as Dracula and other movie monsters; James Bond villain Scaramanga; Lord of the Rings’ white wizard Saruman; and Sith Lord Count Dooku in the Star Wars prequel films.

He also appeared alongside Johnny Depp, who has called Lee “a wonderful inspiration,” in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, which also starred Chloe Grace Moretz — who already had worked with Lee in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar winner Hugo.

In a series of tweets posted Thursday morning, Moretz recalled the influence Lee had on her, saying she would “never forget everything that he taught me and the wonderful conversations we had and how he always helped me keep my head up.”

She called working with him an “immense pleasure” and posited that it was “a huge testament to what a brilliant actor he was that someone from the age of 12 had the pleasure of personally acting opposite him in film.”

Chloë Grace Moretz Doesn’t Want Life To Be All About Relationships

If there’s one thing Chloe Grace Moretz isn’t focused on at 17-years-old, it’s the crazy world of teenage dating.

“It’s a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly,” the actress reveals in 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.”

It’s a mindset she tries to share with her close friends. Often times, however, they don’t follow her lead.

“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 tells the publication. “You’re going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you’re going to get married…and then you’re dead!”

She adds, “So you lived your life in a relationship! That’s not my style.”

Instead of focusing so much on a boyfriend, Grace Moretz is engrossed with her movie career and the fashion world.

While she loves wearing anything “fun and interesting,” she advises people not to judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a star by her outfit.

“If someone wears a crazy outfit, they’re automatically a crazy person,” she explains. “If you wear a tame outfit, you’re automatically a prude.”

That same judgmental nature of the fashion world is also found when paparazzi catch the star with male friends.

“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!'”

Like she suggested: Don’t judge a book by its cover!

Lynn Shelton & Sam Rockwell on Working with Keira & Chloë In ‘Laggies’

INDIEWIRE.COM – Since her breakout film “Humpday” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival five years ago, writer/director Lynn Shelton has been one of the hardest-working women in the business. In addition to her last two features—“Your Sister’s Sister” and “Touchy Feely”—she has also directed episodes of “New Girl” and “Mad Men.” Her films are complex and touching explorations of human relationships and, until now, they have mostly been improvisational works developed with talented ensembles of actors.

In her latest film “Laggies,” which premiered last week at the Sundance, Shelton switches gears, working from another person’s script for the first time—without most of her standard improvisation—on a much higher budget (“I broke the million-dollar mark, by quite a lot!”), and with a bigger cast of characters, many of them A-list. The result is a polished and unique rom-com about a young woman (Keira Knightley, in a comedic return to her “Bend it Like Beckham” roots) caught in a quarter-life crisis who bonds with a teenager (a winning Chloë Grace Moretz) and her rakish father (Sam Rockwell, who’s at his charming best).

Well-received at Sundance, “Laggies” quickly secured a distribution deal with A24 (the company that released both “The Bling Ring” and “The Spectacular Now” last year). We talked to both Shelton and Rockwell on the day the deal was announced, and they were understandably over the moon. Check out our conversations with them below, with Rockwell discussing his work on the movie and the Sundance experience, and Shelton on working with bigger budgets, shooting under the radar in Seattle, and more.
