Chloe Grace Moretz is not gunning up for an Oscar award. Is she good enough to earn one?
Moretz, a 19-year-old actress, has been a child star for several years. In fact, she starred alongside Denzel Washington in the movie “The Equalizer,” acted as Julianne Moore’s daughter in “Carrie,” aced over-the-top costumes and acted alongside Johnny Depp and Michelle Pfeifer in “Dark Shadows.”
These personalities have received awards as best leading actors and actresses, while Pfeifer had been nominated for best actress in the Academy Awards. It would not be surprising for Moretz to earn one, too, but it seems she does not care about it.
During an interview with Complex, Moretz revealed that although she has worked with Academy-acknowledged co-stars in several films, she revealed that she is not as interested to win one at present. She stated, “I don’t want to win an Oscar right now. I don’t. I don’t deserve it. Not yet.”
However, the report indicated that she may be nominated this year due to her epic performance in “Brain on Fire.” When asked about the possibility, Moretz responded, “I don’t want to jinx it! I just hope people like it. To be honest, I’ve had a lot of hits and misses. For me right now it’s all about building my career, building my brand. If critics catch onto it and want to give me acclaim, then cool. But that’s not me. It’s not something that I’m like, ‘Oh my god! Why don’t they love me?’”
In other news, Moretz was also allegedly unexcited about being a part of Taylor Swift’s posse, reported Entertainment Weekly. She allegedly admitted that she was able to receive an invitation to Swift’s group which comprised of Selena Gomez, Cara Delevingne, Karlie Ross, and Lena Dunham among others.
When asked about her decision on the offer, Moretz sarcastically said, “They appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques!” Did she just hint that she did not like Swift at all? Not really. When asked about her views on Swift, Moretz described as being very talented — which means she does not hate her in any way. Being part of a clique just might not be her thing.
At present, Moretz is expected to portray the lead role Ariel in the upcoming “The Little Mermaid” reboot, as reported by Cinema Blend.
