MTV: Chloe excited for Dark Shadows

Anyone who follows us here at Movies Blog and MTV News, for that matter, is well aware that we’re just a little excited about “Dark Shadows,” Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s next collaboration. In addition to our gushing over all the released photos, Depp weighed in on the subject himself, calling his Barnabas Collins a “classic monster character,” and the film’s composer Danny Elfman promised a “fun” and “wild” film.

Today we have more warm fuzzy words about the film via co-star Chloe Moretz, who we ran into at Spike’s Scream Awards, where she talked about her experience making the film and why the film is so special.

“It was pretty amazing. I mean working with Tim Burton has always been a dream for me, so to actually get on set and work with Tim, and be in it with Johnny Depp, and Helena Bonham Carter and Michelle Pfeiffer, it was a dream come true because they are all my idols,” she said. “To work people like that that know how to do it, and how to get it. It was really special I learned a lot.”

With regard to what separates the film from Burton and Depp’s most recent collaborations, Moretz said “Shadows” harkens back to Burton’s most iconic, classic films.

“I think it’s special because it goes back to Tim’s roots. It goes back to ‘Beetlejuice,’ and ‘Edward Scissorhands’ and it goes back to the true Tim,” she explained. “I love it because he gets in it, and he’s in that little circle with Michelle, and Helena and Johnny, and it just, it happens. Everything goes down in the movie.”

What is it about such tough, dark roles that interests you?

I think it’s fun because — I don’t know, I don’t like… The damsel in distress roles are always kind of the same; they’re always repetitive. I think it’s more fun to have a role that is different, and you’re able to portray a different side of women. Because forever it’s always been the damsel in distress. It’s fun to play the leading women.

Did you ever want to do a Disney star type of thing, like most actresses your age?

I really like projects that are dark and meaty and really where I can portray someone that I’m not. I’d rather not do a role where I’m playing myself because it wouldn’t be fun for me, because I like playing someone who is not me.

So, why were you interested in this film, specifically?

I think because the role was an interesting role. I think it was the relationship between Sam and her that I found really interesting. Sam needs someone to love and father, he needs someone to father and be that parental figure. And [my character] just needed someone to love me and take care of me so I could just let my guard down and be a normal girl. And so I think the way that unspoken kind of thing happens between them, I think that’s kind of special… I love how she changes from the beginning of the film to the end.

How was it working with such big co-stars, like Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain?

It was amazing. I absolutely love Jessica Chastain. And actually, when I worked with her, she hadn’t fully broken out yet with all of her movies that are out now. So when I met her I was like, ‘What are you up to?’ And she named about 15,000 movies and I was like, ‘Oh wow, you’ve been very busy.’ And then I realized how amazing she was at acting. She just transformed that character. And I know that character — she actually based it on an actual woman. I thought that was so cool that she kept in contact with that woman and sent emails to her and they went to lunch and stuff. I think Jessica is such a phenomenal actress.

Do you want to start playing real people and doing research like that?

I’ve definitely done that type of research before. For this role, we actually went to these halfway houses and met these people who were either on meth or are free of meth, but have all their stories. And so I realized a lot of crazy stuff when I was there.

How’d you handle that?

It’s weird because it’s close now and it’s reality. And when reality hits you in the face, you’re like, “Oh my god.” It’s a lot darker than you think it to be.

Was it hard to play a girl who was abused?

I don’t know. I’ve never been abused and I’m only 14 so I don’t have a lot to pull from. After meeting the women who went through that at the halfway house… A lot of them have obviously been through more than that, they’ve been through beatings and very dark things. So I don’t know, I guess you just try and portray that sense of, they put up a front. In the beginning they put up a front and they’re strong and they fight back, but after a while, that whole thing crumbles. It’s like a child, it’s like a little kid sitting in front of you — they don’t know what to do with their body and they’re just kind of confused, they don’t really know where to go.
