Chloe Grace Moretz Likes Roles Where She’s Not Just ‘The Little Girl’

Whether it’s Hit Girl in the Kick-Ass films or Carrie White in Carrie, 17-year-old actress Chloe Grace Moretz noted during an interview with Press Association, via Yahoo! News, that she “never liked auditioning for the role that just involved being the little girl.”

“Even when I was younger, that was a subconscious [decision],” Moretz said.

It’s one of the reasons why Chloe said she chose the role of Mia in the film adaptation of If I Stay, which is now playing in theaters. After a terrible car accident, Moretz’s character, Mia, has to make the tough decision of staying in this world or moving onto the next.

The film shows flashbacks of Mia’s life and one of the decisions that she had to make was to either stay with her boyfriend, Adam (Jamie Blackley) or attend college and follow her goal to becoming a musician.

“It’s why I love Mia so much, because she doesn’t say, ‘I’ll give up Julliard for you,'” Moretz noted. “She contemplates it for a second and then she’s like, ‘No, why would I ever give up what I love, what I’ve given my life to?’.”
