Chloë Grace Moretz Addresses 'Pushback' & Being 'Infantilized' on Set

Chloë Grace Moretz is opening up about her acting experience.

The 25-year-old Kick-Ass star spoke out about what’s happened behind-the-scenes on her projects over the years, and revealed that she’s faced “pushback” on set during a conversation on the “Reign with Josh Smith” podcast.

During the appearance, Chloë discussed the “power struggle” she felt on films as a teen among older male colleagues.

“Having to even advocate to an older man on behalf of your 14, 15, 16-year-old self is a really, really crazy kind of mind f–k,” she said.

“It was always odd from my first leading role when I was 14 in Carrie…It was always really interesting to see who would be really unhappy with a young woman.”

She started at age 7 in films like Amityville Horror and TV shows such as Desperate Housewives.

“At that point, I had already worked for so many years — almost 10 years — and as I continued through having more important roles on set as I grew up, it was always very interesting to see the pushback that I would get from a lot of people,” she said.

“The majority of it was older men for sure who would infantilize me. If I had real things to bring to the table, a lot of the time it would get shot down.” Watch her appearance inside.

She also revealed whether she’d do another Kick-Ass movie.
