Chloë Grace Moretz, 16
The term ”child star” seems a bit too light for an actress who has given us an array of varied and impressive performances in movies like Let Me In, Hugo, and Kick-Ass. And this year is a big one for Moretz, who returns as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass 2 (out Aug. 16) and tries to make an iconic role her own in Kimberly Peirce’s remake of Carrie (in theaters Oct. 18). Her work has often been defined by a fierce precociousness, and it’s been fascinating to watch as her age catches up to her ability, and not the other way around.
Growing Up Fast: ”I’ve learned not to take stuff too seriously,” says Moretz. ”I started when I was six. I understood what I was doing at a really young age, which is weird for a 6-year-old, and it doesn’t usually happen that way — except for maybe, like, that kid in Looper.” (She means Pierce Gagnon.) ”It’s really hard to act when you’re that young, because you can barely read a book, let alone memorize one and act it out. And those first times when you lose a project when you’re a kid, you get really sad about it and it really sucks. But as I’ve grown up it’s like, ‘Okay, great, I’ve lost a project, so what? What’s next?’ It’s learning to brush it off.” —Keith Staskiewicz
