19-year-old star Chloe Grace Moretz after a whopping 55 films to her credit to date has decided to briefly step away from the limelight. This surprising turn of events means that she has now dropped out of all future film projects, which included the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid . It’s a bold move for a young actress to make but it is understandable considering the damage that Hollywood has inflicted on child-stars like Lindsay Lohan ,Macaulay Culkin and Shia Labeouf. The Hollywood Reporter stated that the teen star has experienced what she called a ” Come to Jesus moment” she also explained that :
“……. I pulled the plug on all my movies because I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again. I’m realizing that I can slow down”
It has been reported that Moretz will now focus her energy into television production and she has expressed her interest in public speaking , publicizing the issues of body positivity for girls and has hopes of joining the campaign trail for presidential nominee Hilary Clinton in the run up to the November U.S. election. While it will be a little disappointing to not see the actress for a while it might help her career in the long run. Until then we can just remind ourselves how much potential she has by watching her in films like the Kick-Ass series , Hugo , Bad Neighbours 2 : Sorority Rising , The 5th Wave , The Equalizer & Carrie.
