Chloe Moretz On Her Brothers Coming Out: 'It Was Really Hard To See Them Being Bullied'

Chloe Moretz shows off her midriff in this inside shot from her December 2015/January 2016 cover of Nylon mag.

Here’s what the 18-year-old Neighbors 2 actress had to share:

On feminism: “My mom was a single mom, so I’ve been a feminist since birth. I think feminism is about strong women being who they want to be and fighting for equality on all accounts. It’s not about men being demolished to bring women higher up in the world. I think that’s incredibly misconstrued.”

On her alternate career: “I’m ready guys, youngest female president ever! I don’t know…maybe not president. I might just be a senator. We’ll see.”

On standing up for her brothers after their coming out: “The problem is we live in a society where we have to say the words, ‘I’m coming out.’ No one should care what your sexual orientation is, what color your skin is, or if you’re a man or a woman. People would call them the F-word, and I would get so angry. It was really hard to see my brothers be hated on or bullied, so I stood up for them. We shouldn’t be using these terms to create more labels and segregate us further apart than we already are. At a young age, I was motivated to fight for gay rights, women’s rights, minority rights—all human rights.”
