In 2002, Chloë, her mother, and elder brother moved to New York: Trevor was accepted in a theater school. The girl took an interest in acting as well and repeated the brother’s monologs. Although it was weird for the five-year-old child to quote A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams, she was sure she wanted to become an actress.

2010 was marked with the triumph. The role in Kick-Ass brought much recognition, although the movie itself was severely criticized and received only one star out of five. Chloë learned to do all the tricks on her own. In 2011, Moretz won MTV Movie Awards – Best Breakout Star and Biggest Badass Star.

Chloë Moretz began to act in her childhood and attracted many people. Due to her young age, she did not have roles related to sensitive content.
Gradually, the child actress transformed into a teenager and young woman; however, there were no naked photos. Moretz never appears without clothes in front of cameras. In Kick-Ass 2, she was wearing black strings; the audience saw the actress’s body was far from being childlike. Besides, the artist appeared partially naked in the movie Carrie.
Chloë is fond of fashion; famous magazines publish her photos on their covers. Besides, the young woman tried herself as a photo model despite her not-so-modeling sizes (105.82 lbs. or 48 kg. and 5.35 ft. or 163 cm.). Chloë has collaborated with Flaunt, Jalouse, Love Magazine, Crash Magazine, InStyle; even the leaders of fashion Vogue, Teen Vogue, Marie Claire, Interview, and Elle worked with her.
The family is the most important thing for Chloë. Two of her brothers are gay, and Moretz promises to blacklist homophobic fans who will talk sharply about the actress’s relatives or other LGBT people.
Chloë has a verified Instagram account; she prefers black-and-white photos and light-gray or pastel frames. There are few non-stylized pictures in the young woman’s page; overall, it looks like an art gallery. More than 15 million people follow the actress.
The artist separates her personal life and art; she does not tolerate the paparazzi in her private affairs. At the beginning of her career, Chloë worried about rumors and speculations spread by journalists. When she asked them where their information had come from, they said the actress’s close sources provided them with various details.
After that, Moretz started spreading unbelievable rumors about herself; every acquaintance received different ideas. Thus, the woman tried to find out who sold stories to the media. As a result, Chloë realized that her family was the only reliable circle.
The actress avoided talking about her boyfriends for a long time. However, in May 2016, she shared some details at The Late Late Show with James Corden. Chloë confessed that Brooklyn Beckham, the son of the famous soccer player David Beckham and the singer Victoria Beckham, used to date her.

The new interpretation of the story showed the fat princess and the red shoes that could save the prince and transform the young woman, particularly, make her slim; however, the shoes spoiled her character.
Chloë was outraged by the project campaign: the original slogan emphasized that Snow White stopped being beautiful. Similar to the actress, many fans noticed that fatness did not mean ugliness. The movie representatives took away the posters and apologized.
The same year, the actress participated in the fantasy thriller Suspiria that shows the boarding ballet school where witches reside and organize a coven. Besides, the actress appeared in the drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
