Chloe Moretz, who recently starred in Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, hit up Hollywood Life yesterday and filled them in on the sex scene she filmed with Zac Efron for the film, something that she seemed pretty enthused about but also seems to think will make it more difficult to form dating relationships with non-movie stars.
“I put him in some really compromising positions,” recounted Moretz.

Efron, who is 28 years old, is nearly a decade older than 19 year-old Moretz, so one can imagine the prospect of a sex scene with him must have been fairly nerve-wracking for her.
To counterbalance those factors, though, is the fact that Zac Efron has been widely revered as one of America’s chief heartthrobs since he broke onto the pop culture scene with his leading role in the 2006 film High School Musical.

Despite that last fact, Moretz was not down for going completely nude, and Chloe went on that the “sex” was actually of the dry variety… but that did not make it any less thrilling.
“It was an anti-sex scene because my clothes stayed on the entire scene,” Chloe said in the interview.
“It was pretty raunchy, pretty wild.”
Movie buffs will not yet get to see Moretz and Efron getting frisky, as the scene did not make it into the movie’s theatrical cut, but we can surely look forward to its inclusion on the “deleted scenes” portion of the Blu-Ray!

Although Chloe Moretz’s interview did not seem to indicate she minded the scene’s filming, though, several sources, including a previously published Inquisitr piece, have reported her comments that sex scenes and the other on-screen shows of emotion that highlight the life of an actor are really taking a toll on Moretz’s dating life.
“[Guys you date] have seen you in sex scenes in movies, they know what you look like crying,” Moretz told The Edit.
Chloe continues by saying that guys who have seen her and had the opportunity to “get to know” her when she has not had the same chance are given somewhat of an “unfair disadvantage” right out the gate.
“They can read your interviews and know your favourite bands so it feels like they have all this in common with you… Happens a lot. I’ll think, ‘How are we vibing so hard right now?’ Then I realise, and I don’t care anymore, I just go back to work.”
To level that uneven playing field, Chloe says, she will no longer date “normal people” and will only go out with fellow film stars, whom Moretz can research beforehand just as much as they can do with her.

Not only that, Moretz goes on, but they will be more understanding of the hardships of being a Hollywood celebrity, things that might occasionally draw Chloe away from their relationship.
“They’d understand the travel, the sex scenes with random people, the crazy schedules…”
Moretz says she even avoids any areas with lots of single men, such as traditional bars, and Chloe’s favorite thing to do is dancing at gay clubs with her brothers.
Moretz’s hesitancy to interact with men outside of the celebrity circle is likely one of the reasons Chloe feels so comfortable dating Brooklyn Beckham, who is son of famous British soccer player David Beckham and an occasional TV star himself.
“[The Beckhams] are a great family. They don’t tout their money either,” Moretz said.
