The 18-year-old actress was joined at the event by Nick Robinson, her co-star in the upcoming movie The 5th Wave. They hit the stage together during the show to present. Make sure to catch their movie in theaters on January 15!
The 18-year-old actress opens up about being a lifetime feminist, her politic aspirations and more. Check it:
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 the overuse of #squadgoals: “I agree with having a good core group of friends, but the issue I have with squads is it creates exclusivity. I was never included in those things when I was a kid. I was the weird one that chose to do movies, so now I go out of my way to be nice to people and make them feel included.”
News that Chloe Moretz will be playing the title character in a new re-telling of the classic The Little Mermaid story have been met by mixed reviews, but perhaps people need to realize this is not the Disney version.
The story, originally penned by Hans Christian Andersen, is much darker than what the animated Disney film portrays and will really let Chloe show off her acting chops.
With intense scenes where Ariel gets her tongue cut out and turns into foam after the man she loves chooses another! In a lesser known fact, Andersen penned the story after being rejected by his own affections towards a man.
Check out this video showing the differences between the original story and Disney’s version of The Little Mermaid below:
