Chloe Grace-Moretz: An Appreciation

She's worked under Scorsese, Burton and Matthew Vaughn. She's worked with Johnny Depp, Julianne Moore, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Jim Carrey. (A love for the letter J, perhaps?). And yet, Chloe Grace-Moretz is only sixteen.

Sometimes I think Chloe Grace-Moretz chooses films based on my likes and dislikes. Let's look at the films she's been in. 

  • Kick-Ass 1&2. She originally played Hit-Girl when she was only 11 and she stole the show. She stole the show alongside McLovin from Superbad, Nicolas Cage from every so bad it's good action film in the 90's and a guy who has played John Lennon on screen. Pretty impressive if you ask me - and I haven't even mentioned that Kick-Ass is my favourite modern action film.
  • (500) Days of Summer: (500) Days of Summer is my favourite rom-com. CGM only has a little part in it, but she still has some kick ass lines (no pun intented).
1) Rachel Hansen: Better that you find this out now before you come home and find her in bed with Lars from Norway. 
Tom: Who's Lars from Norway? 
Rachel Hansen: Just some guy she met at the gym with Brad Pitt's face and Jesus' abs.

2) Rachel Hansen: Quit being a pussy. 

3) Rachel Hansen: PMS? 
Tom: What do you know about PMS? 
Rachel Hansen: More than you, Tom. 

Enough said, really. 
  • Hugo. Her character epitomizes what Scorsese was going for her. She brings so much warmth and love to her character and plays off Asa Butterfield terrifically.  
She can go from playing a character like Hit-Girl to playing Darby from the Winnie the Pooh series. She can go from playing a vampire to playing Rachel Hansen in (500) Days of Summer

Not to mention that she has the remake of Carrie coming up, along with playing the lead in one of my favourite books as a child, If I Stay. 

She's been in 18 films and she's only sixteen. I'm seventeen and have been in none. 

She truly is a great talent, and ridiculously hot too!
