Hot actress Chloë Grace Moretz was named one of the 25 Most Influential Teens of the year by Time magazine in October 2014. And Time surely listed her right as she is not just influential but also beautiful, brave and very much down to the earth. This young actress, aged 18, recently talked about how her parents’ divorce toughened her up and why she won’t be dating any older guys.
The critically acclaimed actress has seen a lot in both reel and real life. All the ups and downs she has gone through in life has helped her become stronger in her life.
Talking to Marie Claire for its February cover story, she revealed that she was "toughened up a lot" by her parents’ divorce, which happened when she was quite young.
The Hugo star said: "It made me harder on myself. It was as heavy as you can get to dismantle a family, for sure."
According to the actress, her father simply left her mother and her with her four brothers without a word. "When you're betrayed by someone that is a bloodline, you start to beware trusting people and to protect yourself at all costs," Moretz told Marie Claire. "For a long time, I did that too much. I wasn't letting people in."
And this is the reason why the actress is fearful of dating and jumping into a serious relationship. The actress believes that her habit of not letting people in might have hampered her dating life in the past. She also stated that she did not want to date older men because they were serious.
"I don't want to date older people, because I'm 18 and older people are more serious," the Let Me In actress revealed to Marie Claire. "Then I kind of realized, I'll go on dates, why not? And that's kind of how I am right now."
Moretz also insisted that she's "not looking for a while" or for another five years. She also admitted how she has begun seeing herself and her body in a beautiful way and now she feels comfortable in her own skin. She said that she was full of self-doubt as she was criticized online about two years ago.
"I felt fat; I felt not pretty," she said. "I felt like I didn't really know who I was. I was so confused; I was scared. I had bad acne. I felt incredibly insecure."
But she said that venturing into adulthood changed her perspective on herself.
"I'm so free now. I don't know what happened, but when I turned 17, this huge weight was lifted off my shoulders," Moretz shared. "I don't worry about what people say about me. I know who I am, who I want to be, what I want to portray myself as, what I want people to think of me."
And this is what we love about her, her self-confidence and unconditional love for herself and others as well.
The Dark Shadows star loves to keep her professional career and personal life apart.
She is also only interested in men her age. She is currently single, but she reportedly dated Brooklyn Beckham, the hot eldest son of David and Victoria Beckham, last year.
So if you want to be her boyfriend, then you might have a chance. Better give it a try, young men!! (wink).
