Chloe Grace Moretz reveals she wanted a boob job when she was only a kid.
Chloe Grace Moretz was amazing in the sequel to Neighbors, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising. But, this former child actress revealed she had body image issues and wanted plastic surgery to fix them when she was only 16.
“I wanted a boob job,” the actress told Elle. “I wanted the fat pad under my chin to be removed. I wanted a butt reduction, or whatever. And my mom said, ‘Absolutely not, you’re not allowed to have plastic surgery.’ And because of that, I found a lot of power within my insecurities. They’re what make me who I am now.”
During her interview, Moretz, who is also the new face of Coach, revealed a conversation between her and Hillary Clinton. Moret explained that “many girls are afraid to be who they want to be” because of “underlying deep-rooted sexism” in America.
And she wants to change the world through her modeling deal with Coach. “I try to keep it natural,” she added. “When I signed onto the Coach ads, we were all on the same page that the hair and the makeup are things you could do in real life. I try to break barriers. I try to not post Instagrams where I Facetune my face and I wear a ton of makeup.”
Moretz continued: “Yes, I have had hair extensions. Yes, the reason I have this body is because I work out seven times a week. Yes, I eat really clean — even though I don’t always want to, and I definitely cheat. But you’re not just born with this. Sometimes you have to fight for and work for things, and be happy with who you are at the same time. And that’s a really hard balance but I want to show it to young women.”
It’s important to point out that Moretz has been outspoken about body image in the past. Recently, she responded to Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie, saying that the reality star is a bad role model for young women.
“@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than … just their bodies,” the actress wrote on Twitter in March.
