I love this new, outspoken Chloe Grace Moretz!
The Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising star, 19, has come out as dating Brooklyn Beckham, has beefed with Kim Kardashian and now she’s talking more BODY IMAGE. The girl had an interview with Elle recently, and revealed that she had a long list of body issues that she desired to tackle early on, but didn’t and now she’s better off.
“When I was 16, I wanted a boob job. I wanted the fat pad under my chin to be removed. I wanted a butt reduction, or whatever,” she told Elle.
But Moretz’s mother refused to allow her to go under the knife, which mended her inner beauty. “Because of that, I found a lot of power within my insecurities,” she continued. “They’re what make me who I am now.”
Still, the actress, who is dating Brooklyn Beckham, doesn’t pretend that she woke up like this. “Yes, I have had hair extensions. Yes, the reason I have this body is because I work out seven times a week. Yes, I eat really clean — even though I don’t always want to, and I definitely cheat,” she continued. “But you’re not just born with this. Sometimes you have to fight for and work for things, and be happy with who you are at the same time. And that’s a really hard balance, but I want to show it to young women.”
And when she’s feeling down, she has Beckham, 17, in her corner. The couple confirmed their rekindled romance in May with a sweet Instagram post. “My boyfriend is a huge support. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t need a man for anything, but when I’m feeling bad about myself, he’s like, ‘Stop. Look at what you say in interviews. Look at what you stand for. Listen to your own words, because you’re as beautiful as you say you are!’” she revealed. “It’s nice to have a young man who’s 17 years old be able to look at a woman that way.”

Good on you, Chloe. I hate how many celebs get plastic surgery and don’t talk about it, perpetuating an unrealistic beauty standard. She’s young, but it feels like Chloe Moretz is pretty grounded.
