Chloë Grace Moretz BiographyChloë Grace Moretz is an American actress. She had her first significant role in "The Amityville Horror" when she was six. Then, after some notable roles in horror films, the girl brilliantly played Hit-Girl in the superhero comedy film "Kick-Ass". Now, Moretz is known as one of Hollywood’s most promising young actresses. She can already boast of numerous parts in versatile projects: from comedies and psychological thrillers to independent films. Net worth: $12 million.
Childhood and FamilyThe future star Chloë Grace Moretz was born on February 10, 1997, in Atlanta, Georgia. She grew up in a medical family: her mother, Teri Duke, was a nurse, and her father, McCoy Moretz, was a plastic surgeon. Maybe Chloë could have become a medical doctor herself but, fortunately, she chose her path.
First RolesIt is noteworthy that Chloë succeeded in the acting field much more than her brother. The young actress got her first role in 2004 in the series The Guardian, where she played Violet in two episodes. Then she had a small role in the comedy "Family Plan" (appearing as Tori Spelling’s character in her younger years). In 2005, she starred in The Amityville Horror, where she played the younger daughter of the title characters (Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George) who missed her murdered father the most. The angelic-looking girl walking on the roof impressed many horror film directors. Afterward, there were numerous horror films and mystical thrillers on her filmography list: "Room 6", "Wicked Little Things", "Hallowed Ground", "Not Forgotten", and "The Eye". The audience claimed that in the latter Moretz played even better than Jessica Alba. Because of her busy schedule, Chloë didn’t attend school – she studied with tutors over Skype and did her homework in trailers on the set. Her brother Trevor took over the duties of her acting coach and her agent – he helped her communicate with the press.
In 2007, Teri found out she had kidney cancer. In 2009, McCoy abandoned the family, leaving his wife with the 5 kids. Later, the actress admitted that this caused a serious psychological trauma, and it took her a lot of time to recover from it.
Chloë Grace Moretz also voiced Wednesday Addams in the animated film “The Addams Family,” which was released in 2019.
