Chloe Grace Moretz Talks Fat-Shaming To Variety

Kick-Ass star opens up to showbiz magazine about the darker side of Hollywood.

She may only be 20, but actress Chloe Grace Moretz has been in the entertainment industry long enough to see it’s seedier side. Talking to Variety magazine, Chloe revealed that she was fat-shamed by a male co-star who was ten years her senior, when she was just 15.  

“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,” she told the magazine.

“It was one of the only actors that ever made me cry on set. It just makes you realize that there are some really bad people out there, and for some reason, he felt the need to say that to me.”

The former child star, who made her breakthrough in 2010’s Kick-Ass, also broached the subject of Hollywood’s gender pay gay, saying: “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 backseat,

“[I once missed out on a part] because I’m blonde and there’s another blonde in the movie, you can’t cast me? That’s such a masculine way of looking at things.”
