Chloe Moretz strips down to nothing more than a coat on ‘NYLON’ magazine, where she opens up about her passionate personal stance on human rights after watching the way her brothers were mistreated after they came out. She also shared her ambitions for a future in politics.
Chloe Moretz, 18, looks amazing on the cover of NYLON magazine’s December/January issue, where she showed off her edgy side while rocking just a coat — and the interview proved to be just as telling. She may be just a teen, but Chloe is wise beyond her years — especially when it comes to standing up for human rights.
Being in middle school when both of her brothers came out really put things into perspective and molded the teen. “The problem is we live in a society where we have to say the words, ‘I’m coming out.’ No one should care what your sexual orientation is, what color your skin is, or if you’re a man or a woman. People would call them the F-word, and I would get so angry. It was really hard to see my brothers be hated on or bullied, so I stood up for them. We shouldn’t be using these terms to create more labels and segregate us further apart than we already are. At a young age, I was motivated to fight for gay rights, women’s rights, minority rights—all human rights,” she said.
The teen, who has a role in Neighbors 2, opened up about the highly anticipated sequel. “[Seth] Rogan and director Nicholas Stoller [brought in] female writers and [are] taking a very pro-female stance. “If any of the women ever feel there’s something inappropriate, we speak up, and they will never push the boundaries with us—they’ve been really respectful,” she said.
She also said she considers herself a feminist through and through. “My mom was a single mom, so I’ve been a feminist since birth. I think feminism is about strong women being who they want to be and fighting for equality on all accounts. It’s not about men being demolished to bring women higher up in the world. I think that’s incredibly misconstrued,” she said.
While she may be amazing on the big screen, Chloe is still considering a career in politics. “I’m ready guys, youngest female president ever!” she said. “I don’t know…maybe not president. I might just be a senator. We’ll see.”
Most teens are all about flaunting their “squad” these days, but the thought of #SquadGoals just makes Chloe roll her eyes. “I agree with having a good core group of friends, but the issue I have with squads is it creates exclusivity,” she said. “I was never included in those things when I was a kid. I was the weird one that chose to do movies, so now I go out of my way to be nice to people and make them feel included.”
Not only is she amazing on film, but we love how passionate Chloe is about equality. For more on the star, be sure to scoop up the upcoming issue of NYLON.
