She’s young, talented and gorgeous. Say hello to Chloë Moretz, one of the hottest young things in Hollywood right now. She’s been making waves with her role in the remake of the horror classic Carrie.

Claim to fame

She’s been acting since she was little and shot to fame playing the foul-mouthed child assassin in the 2010 hit Kick-Ass. And while she can’t confirm it she’s hinted at a sequel, saying, “I’d like to do it in the next year or two because I think that’s a good time age-wise. You know her as this 11-year-old assassin so I think it would be fun to show her as this twisted young adult, this 16- to 17-year-old Catwomany, twisted and dark person.'

On being famous

“I’m still normal – I have to do chores and make my bed; everything’s still pretty much the same as before I got ‘famous’. My whole family help me choose the movies I do too; it’s me, my mom and my brother. If they like it they pass it on to me and if I like it then I go for it.”

“I get some people recognising me in the street – some teenagers and a lot of guys that have seen Kick-Ass.”

Did you know?

Her first major film role was the horror flick The Amityville Horror (2005). But being only seven she couldn’t attend her own film’s premiere as she was too young. Shame!

On acting

“I have learnt never to judge any of the characters I portray. Sometimes that’s difficult to do because as a human being we tend to make judgments. But in order to bring a character to life I find I can’t judge her or I won’t be true to her.”

“I’d like to stay in acting for a while. I’d like to make it my career – but you never know. I hope I can.”
