GIRL GOT BEEF!!
With the garbage heap Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising about to hit theaters, it’s no wonder Chloe Moretz is doing as much press as possible. But it’s kind of interesting- on the whole I find her extremely likable and I think most people, do, too. But, girl has BEEF with so many celebs! Maybe it’s a testament to her likeability that we all still care and want her to succeed. Also, she’s super well-spoken and feels well, real.
The girl sat down with Glamour and did a cover for their June issue, and she got deep into why she threw shade in the first place:
“I had just gotten off a plane from South Korea, I was incredibly jet-lagged, and I couldn’t take one more thing. I saw that photo, and I had to say something. That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. … I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention.… I wasn’t slut-shaming. It’s not about body shaming.”
And the 19-year-old continued, sharing her experience when the reality TV starlet called her out:
“I started laughing. I was at dinner with my family [when] I got the notification [on my phone]. I look at it and I go, ‘Oh my God. She responded.’ My mom took the most offense to it because it was girl-on-girl hate and Kim didn’t come back with an educated response on body confidence. It was aggressive, and also it was incorrect. I don’t have 45 million followers or a TV show that follows my life. But people know who I am. I pride myself on having opinions, and I don’t express them in snarky ways toward people.”
She is who she is! And to prove that, Chloe continued to prove as she seemingly shaded Taylor Swift while talking people that push her buttons:
“One who appropriates bad gender stereotypes, appropriates a lot of exclusivity, is very rich and niche-y. Or someone who overtly tries to be normal, when that’s the opposite of who I know they are.”
Chloë didn’t name names, but considering she’s previously spoken about turning down a spot in Swifty’s squad, it’s not a crazy thought. Here are some other highlights:
On her dad leaving when she was only a kid: “I was 12. It was a pretty bad experience…. It could have rocked our family and messed us up, but it actually made us a lot tighter. My brothers bumped up into the roles of fathers and kept me in a bubble where I could live in a world that wasn’t jaded and ruined... I don’t think I will truly find a way to forgive; the things that he did are unforgivable…. My forgiveness is that I’m living my life.”
On keeping her dating life private: “Because it’s no one’s business. These moments are supposed to be so personal and special—you’re building a foundation with someone or just having fun and going on a date. No one needs to know about that, and I hate to see that stuff broadcast on TV.”
Dang! She’s been beefing since she was a kid. But all of these stresses have made her a stronger person, for sure. GET IT, CHLOE!
