It is a tagged Chloë Grace Moretz, who settles down with a ”what's up, man” while wandering around around looking over hötorgskonsten on the walls in the hotel room in Toronto. But in a hundredth of a second shifts her shape from the restless girl to mature, present, articulate actress. 22-year-old knows how to adapt.
– It applies to just throw out into the unknown. I have learned over the years, " says Chloë Grace Moretz.
for how to shift the mood. Since she began acting at the age of five she can in one and the same breath, pairing the softness and degree of danger, mystery and innocence. Not only when she as a vampire craves blood in ”Let me in”, crack open the ribs in the ”Kick-ass” or been humiliated can in ”Carrie” but also as brittisktalande Charles Dickensbeundrare in ”Hugo Cabret”.Image 1 of 2 Chloë Grace Moretz in ”Let me in”.

Moretz has experience as most of the other young actors lack. Even as a 13-year-old, she was called ”Hollywood's busiest actor”. But before she could leave her teens, she went on the emotional idle. After over 50 movies and tv series, she needed to find a new spark to not get stuck in slentrianroller. After one and a half year break she is now both more picky and psyched on the job.
" I want to be scared. I want to be nervous and not know if I even manage to play a role. I felt that I had lost something. It is so easy to become comfortable and to fall into the pitfalls after so many years in the industry, because you are bored. Especially if you love acting, as I do, " says Moretz.
last year's success as a lesbian girl on a christian konverteringsläger of homosexuals and praised ”The miseducation of Cameron Post”. In the morbid ”Suspiria”, she plays the anguished ballet dancer and in the recent psychological thriller ”Greta”, she meets Isabelle Hupperts spiritually dark character. Moretz plays a young, shy woman in Manhattan who are plagued by loneliness since her mother died. When she, attracted by the warm friendship with the older sophisticated pianolärarinnan Greta (Isabelle Huppert) seems the blanks to be filled. But soon anas owls in the bog, the unhealthy obsession will take over.
" I myself think about going to the dark places within myself. The fact that it is two women who play the victims and perpetrators are turning upside down of the whole idea of how such a film tends to be. It picks up a completely new page of ”Basic instinct” and ”fatal attraction”-the phenomenon, " says Moretz.Chloë Grace Moretz and Isabelle Huppert in Neil Jordan's ”Greta”. Photo: Patrick Redmond
and season it with both the camp and absurdity. Despite the fact that Moretz has worked with many star actresses, yet it was scary to play against an icon Isabelle Huppert.
I felt the same way with powerful actors like Julianne Moore, Juliette Binoche and Michelle Pfeiffer. They are all women who I looked up to my whole life, but Isabelle has surpassed all expectations. She is open, free and fearless. And want to constantly learn something new. She is not pressing down its age or see it as a restriction, which american actresses do.
Despite her young age, Moretz also had the beta of an unusual number of great directors. Martin Scorsese rollsatte her in the oscar winner ”Hugo Cabret” as well-read Dickensfan in 1930s Paris in a fabelhommage to filmmediets birth. In Tim burton's ”Dark shadows”, she is playing Michelle Pfeiffers rebellious daughter and in the Olivier Assayas ”Clouds of Sils Maria,” a sassy superstar. ”The crying game”director Neil Jordan drew her somewhat naive I am in ”Greta”.
" I like it when a director makes me and to go against my spontaneous instinct. But still listen to my ideas. Neil Jordan takes such a.
the shocking thriller ”Suspiria” gave the Italian Luca Guadagnino (”Call me by your name”) her a meaty, albeit small, role to bite into.
" He's doing something most directors can't – he opened me up so that I was vulnerable and then break down me, but always in a safe zone. At the same time he has such a soft attitude, " says Moretz, who also will be playing in the Guadagninos the upcoming film ”Blood on the tracks”.
" It was actually hard to shake rollkaraktären in ”Suspiria”. But I am doing something right, it'll be a little difficult. You have this ”push and pull”-feeling with a role. You give as much as you take.
as a lesbian teen in ”The miseducation of Cameron Post” she had already had a long commitment to lgbt issues.
" I grew up with it thanks to my two older brothers are gay. ”Cameron Post” changed me as a person. Above all, the way to deal with problems and overcome them. There are issues in both the ”Greta” and ”Cameron Post” which actually always existed in our communities. Psychological bullying and the fear of the unknown to be homosexual, "she says, and continues:
" I did not actually it was so incredibly common with konverteringsterapi. The 700,000 americans have undergone it and it is illegal in just 14 states. Our vice-president Mike Pence is an advocate. It allows us to use the film as a kind of social activism.
Moretz is activism melded with any type of art.
– You must always have a reason as to why you create something. Why else do it? It is wonderful with film is the ability to embed social activism in the aesthetic and entertaining context. So people can see the funny, sad, heartbreaking movies, and at the same time learn something and hopefully broaden their horizons. Show that there are other roads to take out there.
Moretz think, unlike nidbilden, it is good to grow up as a celebrity.
– It is more difficult to be thrown into it if they are in the age I'm in now and had a normal life before. And everything in your private life potentially adjudication. To not let fear take over, you get in many ways, ”fake it till you make it”. It is the acting. It is good to start with it at the age of five, she says, and laughs.
it is a coincidence that Moretz will play Bonnie in ”Love is a gun”, the upcoming remake of the classic ”Bonnie and Clyde” (1967). She seems to thrive in the grey area between the fearless and the broken.
" I think we actors are obsessed with people. Obsessed with evoke and portray emotion. It is something built into us. If I don't know so I might as well hand it over to someone else.
