Chloe Moretz is currently promoting two major releases, 'Kick-Ass 2' and 'Carrie'. Both films release after the summer blockbuster season, but Moretz is getting a jump on promotion and covers the latest issue of Nylon Magazine.
In the interview, Moretz discusses her role as Hit Girl in the Kick-Ass franchise and explains how she managed to embody the character. She explains, "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, 'That is the raddest female-empowerment Angelina Jolie-type character for an 11-year-old girl.' It was a 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!"
She also talks about her role in Carrie, and her first step into the horror genre. She says, "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. 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."
It looks like her risk and dedication paid off for both roles, as the films are tracking very well months ahead of their release. Kick-Ass 2 releases on August 16th, 2013 and in addition to Moretz, stars Aaron Johnson, Jim Carrey, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. 'Carrie' releases on October 18th, 2013 and in addition to Moretz, stars Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Gabriella Wilde, and Ansel Elgort.
