Appearing under many acclaimed directors, such as Martin Scorsese và Tim Burton, Chloë Grace Moretz is one of Hollywood’s most promising young actors. Moretz, who began her film career with the 2005 remake of The Amityville Horror before appearing in many child roles through the mid-2000s, has worked her way through the ranks. In 2010, the start of a new era, Moretz transitioned lớn a more spotlight role in Kick-Ass as Hit-Girl. The film, a black comedy superhero flick directed by Matthew Vaughn, is based on the comic book of the same name by Mark Millar & John Romita, Jr. It also features Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Nicolas Cage.

The story is relatively similar to lớn any other of its genre. An ordinary teenager, Dave Lizewski, sets his sights on becoming a real-life superhero, calling himself ‘Kick-Ass’. However, his attempts to lớn save the day land him in an entanglement with Big Daddy, a former cop. Lizewski discovers that in his quest lớn bring down the crime boss và his son, Big Daddy has trained his 11-year-old daughter lớn be the ruthless vigilante Hit-Girl. After its release date in March 2010, Kick-Ass met with both acclaim & controversy – the former deriving from its effective humour and style, with the latter focusing on the violence performed by a child. After being released on DVD, the movie has gained a cult following. 

A sequel, written và directed by Jeff Wadlow & produced by Vaughn, was released in August 2013, with Moretz reprising her role. In this follow-up, Lizewski enrols in a vigilante team called ‘Justice Forever’ as Hit-Girl tries living a regular life. Kick-Ass 2 outgrossed its $30 million budget, although it failed to lớn meet expectations as critics deemed it inferior lớn its predecessor. In 2018, Vaughn announced his intentions lớn reboot the series. However, Moretz then confirmed her time with the superhero saga was over. This choice is partially due to the time between the first & second films, as Moretz had aged three years, transforming from an adolescent lớn a young woman.

Speaking at the Provincetown Film Festival in 2018, the star revealed her overall experience with the films and that she planned to lớn move on from them. “I love the franchise, I think the first movie was really, really special,” the actor shared. “I wish the second one had been handled in a little bit of a different way. Because I think we were all kind of looking forward to something a little different than what happened with it all.” Moretz’s statement showcases that some of the cast even agree with the critics.

So I don’t think there will be a Kick-Ass 3, at least I don’t think with Hit-Girl in it.” During her time as Hit-Girl, the actor also appeared in the second film adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie in the leading role & another vigilante action flick, The Equalizer. After Kick-Ass 2 và the announcement she would be “re-assessing” her onscreen appearances, Moretz starred in Desiree Akhavan’s sentimental drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post & Neil Jordan’s thriller Greta

Chloë Grace Moretz experienced a different cấp độ of fame và success after playing Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass.


Chloë Grace Moretz has been a Hollywood staple for over a decade.

Playing the mature và skillful Hit-Girl endeared her khổng lồ millions of moviegoers, but getting fame và success so early caused a privacy problem for the Tom & Jerry star. Years after starring in the film, Moretz got candid about her chaotic paparazzi experiences following her breakthrough role.

She opened up to lớn Hunger about how being in the superhero comedy led lớn a dangerous moment between her family & the photogs.

It is kind of a distant memory, in the sense that I was a kid and 90 of the time no one would really bother me. But after Kick-Ass, the first time I experienced paparazzi, it was 10 khổng lồ 15 adult guys surrounding a 12-year-old girl. They pushed my mom và she ended up falling into traffic – she didn’t get hurt, but the situation was really chaotic. It’s an assault on all the senses, with screaming và flashes. I got into the car afterwards & I just burst into tears. I think that’s my marker of before and after.

I remember the day I became aware of it. & it hit me lượt thích a ton of bricks. I was 18 và doing a red carpet. I walked off of it & I felt so much self- loathing và was really confused about the experience that just went down. I was really unwell after that. There was this complete jarring shift in my consciousness, I questioned who I was. What am I doing? Who am I? Why am I doing this? Like, what does this mean?

Chloë Grace Moretz"s identity crisis led to seeking therapy to giảm giá with her private and public personas colliding. Being filmed every minute or hour started lớn take its toll on the Suspiria actress’s self-esteem và identity.

At age 25, she called acting another khung of therapy for dealing with her fame and notoriety.
