Chloe Moretz Doesn't Want To be In Your 'Squad', Thanks Very Much

The 19-year-old is anti-squad and taking no prisoners


Chloe Grace Moretz is taking none of your nonsense.

She's not into body shaming, but nor is she loving all your over-sharing on social media, she's super into ice-hockey and she's speaking up against Taylor Swift-esque girl squads.


The 19-year-old Kick Ass actress has, up until this point, led a relatively secluded life beyond her film roles. 

Famous since the age of six, you'd think that 13 years in Hollywood would have afforded her more than one sensationalist headline; something beyond the 'oh, we think she might be friends with Brooklyn Beckham' stories that have floated around recently.

But reading between the lines of her new Complex magazine cover interview, it seems that waiting until now to have an opinion on anything has been a very conscious move by Moretz and possibly her publicists. 


She's very eloquent about the need to separate her personal life - in which she's just a 'makes dumb jokes' and acts like a 'kid' - and her professional life, which she takes incredibly seriously. 

It seems now, though, that she considers having an opinion to bea vital part of being a respectable, responsible woman.

By way of illustration, she's decided to take a stand against 'squadism' - the trend for declaring who your girl gang is (and by omission, who is not included in your girl gang), a la Taylor Swift.

'They appropriate exclusivity. They’re cliques!' she exclaims of squads in the interview. 

Feeling like she might be the only one who recognises that squads cement a nasty status quo she chirps: 'I feel like I'm taking crazy pills!'

Delving further into the interview, it seems that being outspoken about the right things is something Chloe deems important professionally too.

She explained to Complex that she's not afraid now to speak up against things that she thinks are wrong about a script:

'If you hire me, you’re not going to get some little girl that’s just going to sit there and be this puppet for whatever you want to push on society and appropriate. There have been moments where I’ve read scripts and said, "Look, this has got to change. It’s not like you’re being a bigot, but it’s literally that it doesn’t even click with you because you don’t deal with it. But it clicked with me and I’m telling you, as a young woman, this is what has to change."'

We don't know about you, but we like this new garrulous Chloe Moretz and we hope her voice continues to be heard.
