Sunday Sales: Chloe Moretz

I am a self-described potty mouth, overfilled with weird humor, random bits of knowledge, and sexual innuendo. That being said, I am also a big proponent of allowing children to be children and keeping salacious things away from those curious minds until they are old enough to understand it. Keeping this in mind, my Sunday Sales is about Chloe Moretz.

Edit: 8/15/2012 Image removed. I don't want to be sued.

Chloe Moretz is a child actress most recently famous for starring as the potty mouthed heroine of Kick-Ass. The movie is ultra-controversial. Chloe was just 12 years old when she filmed that movie. A lot of people had a hard time accepting all those lines coming from the mouth of a child. However, I have read countless times that her mom read the script before she allowed her daughter to read it and gave the okay. That is enough for me. If Mom is okay with it, then who are we to decide otherwise?

Anyways, controversy aside. This kid has been busy. Check her IMDB page if you don't believe me. She has been working in the business at least since 2004. She worked with Ryan Reynolds on The Amityville Horror and Jason Lee on My Name Is Earl in 2005, did the voice of Young Penny in Bolt in 2008, and was in (500) Days of Summer from 2009. Since Kick-Ass, she has 2 other movies that have come out (Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Let Me In) along with 8 other projects in the works. For 13 years old, she is incredibly busy and very talented!

The problem with most child stars is that they have a natural talent and as they grow, they become too conscious of it--too self-conscious in other words--and therefore they lose it.

This goes back to the earliest days of film--Spanky from the LITTLE RASCALS, Shirley Temple, a zillion TV kid stars! They were always told how great they were as kids so they never paid any attention to the actual craft. And thus, as teens and adults, they were terrible!

Exceptions were people like Roddy McDowall, Elizabeth Taylor and others who kept studying and never believed their own press.

Look at Mary-Sue and Kately! So cute as kids but kinda freaky looking now and they don't get work at all! The industry has no qualms about tossing away young talent after its taken 'em for all it can get.

That said, Chloe IS good and I hope she--like Natalie Portman who started out as a potty-mouthed kid star--can beat the system.
