Chloe Grace Moretz Was Fat-Shamed When She was 15
We all know and love Chloe Grace Moretz.
Besides the fact that Chloe’s had a pretty remarkable career since she was a kid, the actress has been an outspoken activist for feminist rights. Well, it looks like she was a recent victim of body shaming when she spoke working with a less than friendly male co-star.
In a recent interview with Variety Magazine, Moretz opened up about the incident: “This guy that was my love interest was like, ‘I’d never date you in a real life,’ and I was like, ‘What?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, you’re too big for me’ — as in my size.”
While Moretz didn’t share the identity of the actor, we can’t imagine what it would have been like to be humiliated by someone she had to work with, let alone, pretend everything was all right on set.
Although it happened when the actress was only fifteen, she clearly didn’t let it bring her down. During the interview, she talked about how important it is for people to understand gender inequality, and how it still has a solid place in Hollywood.
She stated that “Even if you’re being paid equally, it’s the little things, especially if the male lead is bigger than you — you aren’t listened to as much and you take a back seat”.
And yet, the actress is not letting anything get to her, as she remains positive about the gradual changes in the industry.
