Chloe Grace Moretz stopped trusting after parents’ split

Chloë Grace MoretzChloë Grace Moretz stopped trusting people after her parents divorced.

The 5th Wave actress was devastated when her father “just left” her mother when Chloë was a child and she admits their separation had a huge impact on her.

She said: “It made me harder on myself. [It] was as heavy as you can get to dismantle a family, for sure. When you’re betrayed by someone that is a bloodline, you start to beware trusting people and to protect yourself at all costs. For a long time, I did that too much. I wasn’t letting people in.”

The 18-year-old star also admitted that, when she was 16 and filming Carrie, she felt incredibly insecure.

She told Marie Claire magazine: “I felt fat; I felt not pretty. I felt like I didn’t really know who I was. I was so confused; I was scared. I had bad acne. I felt incredibly insecure.”

However, these days Chloë is much more confident in herself.

She added: “I’m so free now. I don’t know what happened, but when I turned 17, this huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I don’t worry about what people say about me. I know who I am, who I want to be, what I want to portray myself as, what I want people to think of me.”

The teenage starlet insists she’s not interested in a relationship “for a while” and has no desire to date anyone older than she is.

She said: “I don’t want to date older people, because I’m 18 and older people are more serious. Then I kind of realized, I’ll go on dates, why not? And that’s kind of how I am right now.”

    Sick people! “Her father “just left” her mother when she was a child???” Her father had no business marrying a child in the first place and sounds like a creep.

    She probably felt unattractive when filming Carrie because that’s what the character is supposed to be. I’ve wondered if actors who play characters who are described as fat or unattractive let that seep into their consciousness – seems it does. The funny thing is that they usually hire attractive actors and do things to make them look plain, like Linda Cardinelli in Scooby-Doo. Just saw her in Daddy’s Home and she’s gorgeous.
