Speaking with Elle, Moretz addressed some of the negative comments she herself received for commenting on Kardashian’s nude selfie.
“All I’ll say is that I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways. And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind…I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn’t be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things,” she said.
In the same interview, she explained that she does not have a problem with sexuality at all. For instance, when it comes to movies, she said she is fine with women being sexualized if it is for the specific context and time period of the movie.
She said, “It’s not even roles where females are sexualized, it’s where they’re overtly sexualized in a masculine, stereotypical [context]. I think that’s more of the thing for me. If they are sexualized, do it in a way in which the character feels they’re being adequately depicted, in a sense.”
She added that she wants to do movies that depict strong women who find empowerment in themselves. “I can’t stand [female] characters that are not empowered in a certain way, or at least don’t come to a conclusion at the end of the movie where they find empowerment in themselves. So, for me, it’s just about making choices [so that] I can have a young woman look at the movie and not be negatively influenced.”
It can be remembered that when Kim’s nude selfie bombed the Internet, Moretz was one of those who directly commented and asked the reality star to be more responsible with her posts. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than our bodies,” she said then.
Not everyone appreciated her comment. Some girls think that Chloe advocates women to cover themselves up just so they would be taken seriously. Some accused her of slut-shaming.
At the time, she defended her stance. “There’s a huge difference in respecting the platform that you’re given as a celebrity and ‘slut shaming,’ something I never have done and would never do,” she wrote.
