Chloe whose 16th birthday will be this Sunday, February 10, celebrated an early Sweet 16 at the Aeropostale in Time Square.
On staying in shape:
“I’m conscious of what I eat and try to eat what I want, but if it’s too rich then I change my choices the rest of the day. I don’t really believe in depriving myself – I love food too much. I work out too to keep fit. I think a normal, ‘real’ body is the most beautiful thing in the world. Anyone can be board skinny if they want to deprive themselves. I just personally don’t like that look.”
On the future:
“I love my life. I love my family, I love my friends and I love my pets. I am very, very blessed. The future excites me sooooo much! I’ve got a lot more living to do.”
On remaking “Carrie”:
“There was such a maternal, female aspect to it. This is a movie that deals with really dark but also very female aspects of life. It’s a very extreme mother/daughter relationship. For a man to try and interpret what that was like as a 16-year-old? Nah. Not the same thing. To have an actual female directing you and being opposite on the screen sirens of our day, she allowed me to feel safe to go to such a dark places with her because this is the most vulnerable I’ve ever been. Which is scary.”
After making a name for herself with breakout roles in Kick-Ass, Hugo, and Dark Shadows, teen megastar Chloë Grace Moretz has a big year ahead that includes this summer’s Kick-Ass 2 and the Halloween thriller Carrie.
Chloë Grace Moretz and I have arranged to meet next to the famous gilded Prometheus statue in New York City’s Rockefeller Center, which, in full midweek swing, is a bustling hive of camera-toting tourists, shoppers, and harried businessmen and -women. Perhaps, in hindsight, not the best place to ask an internationally celebrated actress to meet me. I begin fretting: Is there a chance I’ll miss her? Worse yet, is there a chance that everyone in the crowd won’t miss her and I’ll lose her to a swarm of fans?
My answer comes swiftly enough, though, as Chloë strides toward me. Expertly weaving through the crowd in movie-star-mandatory oversize black sunglasses, she crushes me in a bear hug. (Note: We’ve never met.) We decide to spend the afternoon taking in New York from a bird’seye view at the observation deck of Rockefeller Center. The elevator that takes us to the Top of the Rock catapults (there’s no other way to put it, really) passengers up 67 flights in less than a minute, a dizzying—but steady—climb as rapid as Chloë’s ascent to the top tier of Hollywood. The Georgia native made her big-screen debut at age six in The Amityville Horror and has worked with the biggest stars in Hollywood, opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in (500) Days of Summer, Jude Law in Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, Johnny Depp in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows, and Alec Baldwin in a recurring role on 30 Rock (which she’d just finished shooting, hence the convenient— albeit absurdly busy—meeting spot).
This one is an exciting update for me. I really LOVE Gayle Forman’s novels “If I Stay” and “Where She Went” and been following the news about the film, so when I read about Chloe being involved I was super excited. Find out more below, and have any of you read the books? Do you think she’ll make a good Mia?

After years of helming documentaries and TV shows, R.J. Cutler is closing in on his first narrative feature directing gig: Summit Entertainment’s “If I Stay.”
