Career and style wise, Chloe Moretz is one of the most successful young starlets. Chloe is gearing up for the release of her new film 'The 5th Wave' and she is the February 2015 cover star of Marie Claire magazine. On the cover which was shot by Tesh, Chloe is wearing a GUCCI SPRING 2016 sheer mesh & sequin ruffle dress with a floral detail. Her pose looks a bit odd but other than that, she looks great on the cover. In the issue, she talks about road trips, her parents divorce, getting older and more. Continue below to read some excerpts from her interview. For more on Chloe's feature, visit MarieClaire.com and pick up a copy on newsstand next week.
On filming Carrie and obsessively reading and believing criticisms on social media:
"I felt fat; I felt not pretty. I felt like I didn't really know who I was. I was so confused; I was scared. I had bad acne. I felt incredibly insecure."
On getting older:
"I'm so free now. I don't know what happened, but when I turned 17, this huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I'm so open; I have a good time; I don't worry about what people say about me. I know who I am, who I want to be, what I want to portray myself as, what I want people to think of me."
On her parents' divorce:
"[It] toughened me up a lot. It made me harder on myself. [It] was as heavy as you can get to dismantle a family, for sure. He just left, so it's like you have to fend for yourself… When you're betrayed by someone that is a bloodline, you start to beware trusting people and to protect yourself at all costs. For a long time, I did that too much. I wasn't letting people in."
On filming for Kick-Ass:
"I was pure muscle at that age . I was able to do like 200 pull-ups. It was nuts."
"I don't want to date older people, because I'm 18 and older people are more serious. Then I kind of realized, I'll go on dates, why not? And that's kind of how I am right now. I'm not looking for a while. At least until I'm, like, 23."
