13 Things You Don’t Know About Chloë Grace Moretz

While Moretz routinely talks about her four brothers, she rarely lets it slip that she once had another sibling. However, in a feature for Interview magazine, she told Drew Barrymore, “I used to have a sister, but I never got to meet her, because she died after two days, I think. So if I got a tattoo, it would probably be something to do with my sister.”

6. Her older brother gave up his career for hers

Some people can’t get their big brothers to be seen in public with them, much less devote their entire life to helping their little sister out. Moretz’s older brother Trevor was among the first to recognize his sister’s talent. “Even as a tiny child, she had something,” he told W magazine. He walked away from his own career ambitions and now serves as her producer, mentor, guru and more.

7. She named her dogs after her first big film

Chloë Grace Moretz was only 6 years old when she landed the role of Chelsea Lutz in The Amityville Horror, but the movie left an indelible mark on the young actor. In its honor, she named her dog Fuller after producer Bradley Fuller, and she named her dog Missy after the nickname of her character in the movie.

8. She still got grounded

Churning out blockbuster hits may give you a leg up in Hollywood, but it gets you no special treatment in the Moretz family. “My mom has always said that if I get a big head, she’ll take me out of this business as quickly as I got into it,” she has explained. Referring to herself as an “average, everyday girl,” Moretz assured of her normalcy, “I have to go to bed at 9:30, and if I’m up late on the computer, I lose it for two months.” Yikes!

9. Hit-Girl behavior wouldn’t fly in her household

When it comes to roles, Moretz goes for the shock factor — audiences let out a collective gasp in 2010 when she debuted the foul-mouthed vigilante killer Hit-Girl in the hit film Kick-Ass. But lest anyone get her character in the movie confused with her in real life, Moretz clarifies of the part, “I was raised to think cursing makes you look unintelligent. As Chloë, I can honestly say I’ve never uttered a syllable of a curse word, not even behind closed doors.”

We’re all familiar by now with the pig’s blood plotline in Carrie. But if Moretz had her druthers, the reboot would have included her being showered in something much… sweeter. When asked what she’d rather have been drenched in, the star chose gummy bears. “They’re delicious,” she jokes. “That sounds way more fun than blood. Also, gummy bears aren’t that heavy. So it wouldn’t be like you’re being hit by rocks.”

11. Her address is in LA, but her heart is in NYC

During an interview for Teen Vogue, Moretz turns into a total tourist when she steps onto an observation deck overlooking New York’s famed Central Park. “Oh, my God, I have to Instagram this,” she squeals, telling the writer, “Los Angeles is fun and I’ve lived there for 10 years, but there’s something about New York. I’m pretty much New York in every way.”

12. Julianne Moore intimidates her

In Carrie, the mother of Moretz’s title character is played by veteran actor Julianne Moore — whom she has nothing but praise for. “With Julianne, she is the nicest lady, but at the same time she is the most fearsome actress you’ll ever see,” Moretz gushes. “She’s the type of actress I look up to in a mentor-type way, and she’s someone whose career I will try to emulate.”

13. She’s a sucker for poise

While Moretz has chosen many roles in which she is anything but ladylike, she cites some surprisingly refined choices when asked in an interview who her dream dinner dates would be. Any guesses? If you wagered film greats Drew Barrymore, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Natalie Wood and Grace Kelly, you are spot-on, my friend.
