Moretz, Chloe: Actress profile

Chloe Moretz stars in "Let Met In," the American remake of the Swedish film "Let the Right One In." The film, which also stars Kodi Smit-McPhee as is directed by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), is being released by Overture Films on October 1.

Moretz began her entertainment career at the age of five in New York City as a model in numerous national print and television campaigns. At age six, she moved with her family to Los Angeles, where she landed a recurring role on the CBS drama “The Guardian.” 


Her first feature role came soon after in the independent film The Heart of the Beholder. She then booked a lead role in Michael Bay’s remake of The Amityville Horror, for which she received critical acclaim.


Moretz was recently seen in Kick-Ass, the action-packed adaptation of Mark Millar’s comic book of the same name. She played Hit Girl, a ferocious, potty-mouthed 11-year-old who teams up with her father (played by Nicolas Cage) to fight crime. The film received rave reviews, earning Chloë the title of “most likely to succeed ‘it girl’ in the making” as proclaimed by Teen Vogue


In 2010’s Diary of a Wimpy Kid, a film adaptation of Jeff Kinney’s popular children’s book series, Moretz played an intense middle-school girl dressed in black who is much smarter than her peers. 


This summer, Moretz filmed two movies back-to-back. First was The Fields, for director Ami Mann. This psychological thriller is based on true events that took place in a small Pennsylvania town in 1973. Moretz stars alongside Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain. Next, Moretz traveled to Europe to begin work on Martin Scorsese’s Hugo Cabret. She stars alongside Sir Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen and Asa Butterfield in this film about a 12-year-old orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station. The first 3-D film for Scorsese, it is slated for release in December 2011.


Moretz was recently seen in the acclaimed and offbeat romantic comedy 500 Days of Summer, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel, as well as Not Forgotten, with Paz Vega and Simon Baker. Moretz’s other credits include The Eye, starring Jessica Alba, festival favorite The Third Nail, Big Momma’s House 2 with Martin Lawrence and The Children. 


On the small screen, Moretz appeared in the ABC drama “Dirty Sexy Money,” guest-starred on the series “My Name is Earl” and “Desperate Housewives” and voiced the lead character, Darby, in the Disney animated series “My Friends Tigger and Pooh.”
