As one of Variety magazine’s “Power of Young Hollywood” cover stars, Chloe Grace Moretz, 20, opens up about a tough experience she has had on set.
An older actor, who played a love interest to Moretz when she was only 15-years-old, told her she was “too big” for him to date.
The actor, she reveals, who was in his mid-20s at the time, “was one of the only actors that ever made me cry on set.”
“This guy that what was my love interest was like, ‘I’d never date you in real life,’ and I was like, ‘What?'” she says. “And he was like, ‘Yeah, you’re too big for me’ – as in my size.”
“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,” she continues.
As an actress, Moretz has found herself a part of the ongoing Hollywood debate of equal pay, which has also affected her time on set, “Even if you’re being paid equally, it’s the little things, especially if the male lead is bigger than you,” she revealed. “You aren’t listened to as much, and you take a backseat.”
Moretz also confesses that she has been turned down for movie roles based only on her hair colour.
The actress joins Zendaya and John Boyega as one of Variety’s “Power of Young Hollywood” cover stars.
