'''Chloë Grace Moretz''' (born February 10, 1997) is an American actress from UsefulNotes/{{Atlanta}}, Georgia, best known for playing Hit-Girl in the Film/KickAss franchise. Moretz moved from Georgia to New York in 2001 with her mother and her older brother Trevor because he was accepted into a professional performing arts school; this initially got her interested in acting. Her Hollywood career began when she and the rest of her family moved to Los Angeles in 2003. Her first role in Hollywood was as Violet in two episodes of ''TheGuardian'', and her first film role was as Molly in ''Heart of the Beholder''.

It was not until her second big-screen acting role in the remake of ''Film/TheAmityvilleHorror2005'' that Moretz earned greater recognition in the form of a Young Artist Award nomination. After ''Amityville'', Moretz's acting career progressed further when she received several guest-starring roles on TV, as well as a role as one of the family children in ''Big Momma's House 2''. Among the most notable of her TV roles to date are Candy Stoker in an episode of ''Series/MyNameIsEarl'' and Sherri Maltby in ''Series/DesperateHousewives''. Moretz also voiced the U.S. version of Darby in ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh My Friends Tigger & Pooh]]''. After her first film premiere in ''The Amityville Horror'', she has been a frequent guest at film premieres. She has an interest in fashion, and often wears clothes in her own distinctive style.

In 2010, Moretz appeared as Hit-Girl in director Matthew Vaughn's superhero film ''Film/KickAss'', based on the [[ComicBook/KickAss graphic novel]] of the same name by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr., for which she has received widespread critical acclaim. Moretz trained with Creator/JackieChan and his stunt crew for three months prior to filming ''Kick-Ass'' and did most of her own stunts while filming on location. Also that year, she played Abby, a 12-year-old vampire, in ''Film/LetMeIn'', the American {{Remake}} of the Swedish film ''Film/LetTheRightOneIn'', which was released October 1, 2010. On March 30, 2010, Moretz was cast as Little Anne Sliger in the psychological thriller ''Film/TexasKillingFields''.

Moretz's projects for 2011 included ''Film/{{Hugo}}'' and ''Film/{{Hick}}''. She also portrayed Carolyn Stoddard in Creator/TimBurton's film adaptation of 1960s Gothic soap opera ''Film/DarkShadows'', released May 11, 2012. In 2013, she reprised her StarMakingRole as Hit-Girl in ''Film/KickAss2'' and starred in the re-adaptation of Creator/StephenKing's classic ''Film/{{Carrie|2013}}''. Her upcoming projects include ''Film/{{Laggies}}'', the reboot of the cult TV Show ''Series/TheEqualizer'', and the film adaptations of ''Literature/IfIStay'' and ''DarkPlaces''.

In addition, Moretz has signed on to play the leading role in ''Emily The Strange''. The project was first mentioned over two years ago, when Dark Horse Entertainment president Mike Richardson announced his plans to bring the character to the big screen. First started as an iconic image in 1991 and used to promote a clothing line from Cosmic Debris, the Gothic teen has developed a {{backstory}} through a series of Dark Horse Comics, which have been published since 2001. Said film is early in development, however, so it won't be expected for a few years yet.

Added DiffLines:

** Weaponised, with devastating effect, on the BBC Radio 1 spot [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kpxAFV2di0 ''Playground Insults'']], in which she went toe-to-toe against Creator/SethRogen to see which could deliver the other the most devastating childish insult. Worth it just for the extraordinary snarly expression that she adopts in an attempt to stop herself laughing.
