Chloe Moretz Says Hollywood Execs Were 'Terrified' to Release 'Miseducation of Cameron Post'

Chloe Moretz Says Hollywood Execs Were 'Terrified' to Release 'Miseducation of Cameron Post'

Chloe Moretz flashes a grin on the latest cover of Net-a-Porter’s weekly digital magazine, PorterEdit!

Here’s what the 21-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On why Hollywood executives didn’t rush to buy The Miseducation of Cameron Post because they were scared of its subject matter: “This is the first movie, easily in the last 20 years that I know of, to have won the Grand Jury Prize [at Sundance] that hasn’t been sold overnight. People were terrified to release a movie like this. Especially centered around a young lesbian character who isn’t having wild throes of male-gaze lesbian sex.”

On why she took an 18-month acting hiatus because she didn’t want to do blockbusters: “I wanted to reconnect to my job and what I love about acting. I dropped out of some really big movies. […] I got really caught up in being the girl who does the studio movies and I was like, I’m not that girl. I started in Kick-Ass and Let Me In [2010’s vampire horror] – movies that were not popular when they were being cast. I wanted to find that again and what that means to me, and the first movie that checked all the boxes was Cameron Post.”

On how she tested the waters of fame as a teenager: “The problem with me is that I’m fairly rebellious, in the sense that if people tell me not to do [something], I’ll be like, I’m going to do it, and I’m going to jump in head first and do a flip. […] I was like, ‘Why can’t I kiss on the street and do all of the things that my friends are doing?’ And you can – you can do whatever you want – but then I’d come home and be mad that there’s a photo of me kissing on the street. And my brother would [say], ‘Chloe, you can’t be mad, because you did that! Yes, your friends are doing that, but you are not your friends.’ I started to realize [I was] only hurting myself.”

On how she’s learning to navigate fame by making different life choices: “[It’s] is a bummer, but at the end of the day it’s a double-edged sword. If they’re not taking your photo, they’re not watching your movies, and they’re not writing posts about you. So, you’re like, okay, I’d rather you want it, and I’ll just have to reconfigure my life a little bit.”

Chris Hemsworth Recalls the Time He Approached the Paparazzi & Came 'Close to Destroying' the Cameras

Chris Hemsworth Recalls the Time He Approached the Paparazzi & Came 'Close to Destroying' the Cameras

Chris Hemsworth is looking so handsome on the cover of GQ magazine’s September 2018 issue.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Bad Times at the El Royale star had to share with the mag…

On moving his family to Byron Bay in Australia, and trying to convince his wife to move there: “Both trips we did, it was like pouring rain. And she was like, ‘I don’t know what the big fuss is.’ Then I said, ‘Let’s do a trip up to Byron Bay,’ and we get off the plane and it’s raining. I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. I’m not selling it.’ And she instantly went, ‘No, there’s something different about this place. It is a very special place.’ She went, ‘This could be it. It could be the best decision we’ve made.’”

On keeping his kids faces off social media: “The exploitation is something I’m very wary of. We’ve been offered things, like ‘Advertise such-and-such and have dinner with your family.’ There’s no way….[During one beach trip, one of Chris' sons took off his swimsuit and the photographers kept taking his picture] He’s naked, and I look over, and they’re still shooting. I ran over, and they knew. I just very pointedly and definitely said, ‘Don’t you dare.’ I was close to destroying the camera.”

On his career right now: “I really do feel a sense of ease for the first time in years. I don’t mean that as an assessment of my achievements. I just mean I’m content with what’s going on and relaxed and open about it.”

Rose McGowan Reacts to News that Asia Argento Reportedly Paid Off Her Sexual Assault Accuser

Rose McGowan is reacting to the news that Asia Argento allegedly made a financial agreement with her sexual misconduct accuser.

If you don’t know, a report emerged hours ago that after Asia made the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Asia paid a $380,000 financial agreement with 22-year-old Jimmy Bennett, who claimed that Asia sexually assaulted him two months after his 17th birthday years ago in a California hotel room.

Rose and Asia were both vocal about Harvey Weinstein, and were supporters of the #MeToo movement. Rose even wrote an open letter after Asia‘s boyfriend, Anthony Bourdain, passed away from suicide.

“I got to know Asia Argento ten months ago. Our commonality is the shared pain of being assaulted by Harvey Weinstein. My heart is broken. I will continue my work on behalf of victims everywhere,” Rose tweeted hours ago.
