Chloë Grace Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia. Her mother Teri is a nurse practitioner and her dad, Cory, is a plastic surgeon. With four older brothers Chloë is officially the baby of the family, and she describes her family as very religious. Chloë originally moved from Atlanta to New York with her mother and older brother Trevor because he was accepted into a performing arts school. Little did he know, his little sister was picking up tricks of the trade with him, but her career really took off when they moved to Los Angeles in 2003. Chloë immediately started landing small roles on shows like The Guardian and Desperate Housewives.
Chloë got her big break in the remake of the classic based-on-a-real-story horror movie, The Amityville Horror, which came out in 2005. Critics immediately took notice of this fresh new talent, and Chloë received a Young Artist Award nomination for her performance. Meanwhile, her brother Trevor who inspired her career turned into her acting coach, and sometimes still attends openings and premieres with Chloë. Chloe continued to get TV and smaller film roles, but landed her next big break in the graphic novel-turned superhero success Kick Ass! Chloë’s character curses throughout the whole film in language that she advises is not meant for “anyone under 18!”
“If I ever uttered one word that I said in Kick Ass I would be grounded for years! I'd be stuck in my room until I was 20! I would never in a million years say that. I'm an average, everyday girl; when I act with my friends, I'm totally immature, I have to go to bed at 9:30, and, if I'm up late on the computer, I lose it for two months,” said Chloë.
Chloë’s career was taking flight after Kick Ass, and her next big role was one she could really sink her teeth into-literally! Chloë played a teen vampire in the American adaptation of an award-winning Swedish vampire flick, Let Me In. Chloë spent all of last winter filming the new enchanting and visually stunning Martin Scorsese movie Hugo, based on the novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Starring heavyweight actors Ben Kingsley and Sasha Baron Cohen, Hugo revolves around a young boy trained to fix clocks (and so much more) who lives in a train station and uncovers a mystery with the help of a girl (Chloë.)
