This much I know: Chloe Moretz
I do find people patronise me a little, but no matter what age you are, if you’re a professional, then you’re a professional. I’ve worked really hard since the age of seven to achieve this and I’m going to work harder to achieve more.
I’ve been in quite a few action movies and horrors. If I’m going to watch a film, though, I’ll probably choose a rom com.
History is my favourite subject at school. It’s never-ending. I really like Martha Washington, the first First Lady ever.
I learned to take a gun apart and put it back together on Kick-Ass. But in real life, once I’ve done it, I don’t know what to do with it.
If I wasn’t an actor I’d like to fly aeroplanes. In fact, I’m going to learn anyway.
Retail therapy is my thing. I love shoes. Lots and lots of shoes.
I’ve worked with amazing actors. I can say that without lying. Most of them are still good friends who I go to lunch with. I see everyone I’ve worked with.
I have four older brothers. So, yeah, sometimes I fight back. After Kick-Ass, they’d be, like, “I’ve got Hit Girl!” That was pretty annoying.
The best advice I’ve been given is to stay true to yourself. I talked to Melissa Leo at her Oscar nomination party and that’s what she said. Listen to the voice in your heart and never stray from that.
I’m a very experimental cook, you know, let’s stir some Philadelphia cheese into these eggs and see what happens. I make killer omelettes. The egg is a good thing to cook – you can do everything with them, even get a baby chicken.
With acting you encounter so much negativity that you have to be able to brush it off.
I hate insects. The only reptile I like is a turtle. But get away from me, snake.
I admire Audrey Hepburn. She’s my hero because she helped the world. I want to be there for people, not just be a flighty actor.
I can drive a manual car. Well, I can, but I’d get arrested if I did because it’s illegal. I’m too young.
I was really scared before I auditioned for Martin Scorsese’s film Hugo Cabret. I remember sitting outside, thinking, “OK, I’m so nervous, I’m about to meet Scorsese in his private studio, this is crazy.” Now he’s like a second dad to me.
I cry, I’m a normal 14-year-old girl. Not because my nail broke or my friend betrayed me, but for family things, like when my poodle Bailey died. He was a cute doggie.
I won’t walk under a ladder just because, I mean, why tempt fate? Though I’ve broken a lot of mirrors and I’ve opened a lot of umbrellas indoors. I probably have, like, 50 years’ bad luck anyway.
I think other people probably think I’m weird. I’m quite an open person, I say what I mean. I won’t be a jerk, but you’ll know if I like you.
I have a lot of ambitions to check off my list, but I feel great. I have awesome roles I’ve done and awesome roles I’m about to do. I feel accomplished.
