Chloe Moretz Wants to Major in Criminal Psychology

Chloe Moretz Wants to Major in Criminal Psychology

Chloe Moretz strikes a pose for Flaunt‘s “The Psychoanalytic Issue: Behavioral Patterns,” which she also covers.

Here’s what the 15-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On choosing roles: “I mean, yeah. I’ve done some kid stuff, but I mean I’m just driven to do stuff that is not ‘me,’ you know? … I just had a meeting with a director and I have three pages of notes on the psychology of the character and her thoughts and her past. It’s, like, as complicated as genetics.”

On college: “I’m hopefully going to Columbia University. I want to do a minor in Art History and major in Criminal Psychology. I find criminal psychology incredibly fascinating and scary and how volatile the human mind can be. And I really love classical art, definitely. I mean, I’ve been to so many amazing places in Paris and London, and I’ve seen some beautiful pieces.”

On fashion: “I’m not doing campaigns yet. I want to wait a couple years, because I think if I do it right now, where am I going to go when I’m 20 and I’ve already done two campaigns or something? You know, I figure, why do everything so young and so fast? I’m only 15. Why rush everything? I’m saving a lot of stuff for later. A fashion campaign will come in due time.”

FYI: Chloe is wearing Viktor & Rolf on the cover.

She’s such a cutie.

# 2

She’s not going to college….that’s what they all say, then they all end up not going. But Good luck to her. She’s trained well too by the way she speaks of the future n all.

# 3

three pages of notes is as complicated as genetics? honey, dont go to college.

# 4

She makes me want to punch my 15-year-old self in the face.

# 5

good luck majoring in a field that does not exist. it’s called forensic psychology, twit.

# 6

her mouth… really bugs me.

# 7

I want to like her but she’s so obnoxious and full of herself. But everyone is at that age.

# 8

I hate how celebrities use their name to get into any Ivy league they want. Chloe may be extremely smart in academics, but most celebrities who get in are only there because of their name, nor do they ever graduate and use their degree.

please @ 05/01/2012 at 7:44 pm — look it up before calling someone a twit.

It’s funny that she talks about not growing up fast when all she does is sound like a person 6 or 7 years older.

And why exactly is she going to college when what she wants to major in has absolutely nothing to do with her career? All she will be doing is wasting her time and money going to college majoring in a subject that she will do nothing with. I can guarantee you she will not quit acting to go purpose a job in the area that she wants to major in. If you aren’t going to actually do something with the degree, then why even go? Like I said, she is just wasting her time and money.

I can understand actors going to college if what they are majoring in has something to do with their career, like Eva Longoria. Eva went to college a couple years ago to major in Chicana studies. She is a very big advocate for the Mexican American community, she does a ton of charity work for them, and she is really, really big on politics (and is actually the co-chair for Obama). What she majored in she will actually be using. But what Chloe wants to major in she won’t be using. I just don’t get it… She says now that she will be going to college, but I highly doubt she will. Soon enough she’ll realize it will be a waste of time to go to college to major in something she will do absolutely nothing with.

why is everybody hating on her?who cares if she wants to major in that,whether she wants too pursue that career or not is none of your business why does it bother you.Sometimes actors want too do other things besides acting and actually want too do something normal and have a normal life..why judge!!?

@Hector, I know right? Since when is a fifteen year old not allowed to have hopes and wishes? To me, they just sound like a bunch of cynical dream-squashers. She sounds like a normal teen to me, except that she has a part-time job as an actress instead of at a fast food joint or retail store.
I think she’s lovely and talented and has a bright future ahead of her.

College has become the propaganda machine of the devil.

@Hector: I’m not trying to hate on the girl. I honestly just don’t understand why she would go to college when she won’t do anything with her degree. People go to college to major in what they want to do with the rest of their lives. What is the point of majoring in something like that if you aren’t going to pursue? There is no point at all. It’s a waste of time and a waste of her money. I mean, she can do as she pleases. I personally just think it’s a dumb idea. Sooner or later she will realize that it’s a waste of time.

@Eric: She has said in recent months that she simply wants to go for the enjoyment and experience of it. She wants to learn. And she’s smart enough to get a scholarship so I don’t think she’s going to have to pay for much anyway.

If you complete a degree program when you don’t really ‘have’ to it’s just a self validation exercise. Of course she won’t work in that field for a paycheck. But if it’s something she’s interested in why not? Never stop learning.

I think any psych degree can be helpful to anyone who acts, getting into the part is all about knowing it and the mind of the character….If you watch alot of her earlyer interviews her and her brother thought long and hard about the characters she has played in how to portray them. Knowing the mind cant hurt in that approach.

Pluse she comes from a HIGHLY EDUCATED family, MOM=nurse, DAD=DR, Trevor=grad of acting school in NY, other brothers likely going to or in/have been to college.

so with the above statement, I conclude…she is much smarter/wiser than alot of you are giving her crredit for!! ^.^

@Eric: Just cause you go too college and major in something doesn’t mean you have too do that for the rest of your life.Alot of people go too college simply just too learn more about what ever they’re majoring in.I’m sure she will not think its a waste of her time if she passionate about Criminal Psychology.Just cause she a actor doesn’t mean she can’t go too college and experience it.

@Eric: I’m surprised noone has corrected you yet. Have you even done your research? Eva Longoria did not major in “chicana studies”, she majored in KINESIOLOGY which is the study of human body movement. So funny when people preach and don’t double check that they have the facts right.

@mel: Every teenager tries to sound older than they really are and gets off on it. Trust me, when I was 15, I remember having an online argument on a message board with this girl who was so pretentious and she later told me she was 15 years old, so whilst I was thinking I was having an argument with an adult, I was having one with someone my own age, except instead of using a thesaurus, I spoke like a 15 year old whilst this girl probably thought she was better than me because she was using ‘big words’. It’s just a phase, and when they get older, they’ll look back and realise how pretentious they were.

Perhaps the most depressing thing in the world right now is the fact that, that girl in those pictures up there, is illegal.

She’s precocious, so what? I love that she has ambition beyond fame, glitz. Go girl!
