I’m not going to lie to you – when I saw that Chloë Moretz was born in 1997, I nearly had a heart attack! This young, sweet 16-year-old started acting at the tender age of seven, and hasn’t looked back since. With movies like ‘The Amityville Horror’, ‘500 Days of Summer’, ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’ and ‘Dark Shadows’ under her belt, Moretz is just starting to make her presence felt in Hollywood as one of the most promising up-and-comers, which makes her a great feature for Closet Copycat this week!
What I love most about Moretz is the way she dresses age appropriate – and she’s got great carefree street style. After all, if you can’t dress like that at 16, when can you really? Moretz’s’s festival style is greatly reminiscent of the looks we saw at Future Music Festival last weekend – and if she was there, I bet that you wouldn’t look twice – that’s how comfy and casual she looks!

As the youngest of five children (and the only girl too at that), Moretz refreshingly has her head screwed on right, having expressed her intention to clearly separate her work and personal life, which she describes as “a happy life, with great support from her family”. Moretz first got into acting when her older brother, Trevor, was accepted into the Professional Performing Arts School in Georgia. Since, half the family moved to be with her in New York, before relocating permanently in Los Angeles so she could fulfill her dreams of being an actress. She is typically accompanied to press releases and events by one of her parents or one of her elder brothers.

Moretz’s been a busy, busy girl lately, with four movies hitting the big screen in 2013. In ‘Movie 43’, a comedic collection of short stories, she plays Amanda opposite Jimmy Bennett. Released in January 2013, ‘Movie 43’ has very unfortunately been panned by critics worldwide, including some who even claim it to be one of the worst movies ever made. Oh dear! Let’s hope she has better luck with her other releases, ‘Kick-Ass 2’, ‘Girl Rising’, and the much awaited Stephen King horror story, ‘Carrie’, in which Moretz plays the starring role.

Although her movies border more on dark comedy and is branching out into horror, Moretz is still a sweet 16 year old girl who enjoys down-to-earth hobbies like video games, listening to music, ballet and basketball. We expect nothing but good things from Ms. Moretz from here on out, so here’s to hoping 2013 will be a fantastic year for her!
