Chloë Grace Moretz is such an important role model for girls everywhere and we’re here to tell you why.
She’s strong, she’s independent, she exudes girl power – and we can’t get enough of it!
After reading her insightful recent interview with Glamour, we couldn’t help but think about a handful of the many times the upcoming Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising starlet fearlessly embodied everything we want to be.
Don’t agree with us? Let the actress prove it to you in her own words. Scroll below for five times Chloë spoke her mind and only made us love her more:
1. In the recent Glamour interview, she proved she feels no inferiority in a predominantly male industry.
“Now that I’m able to get projects funded, curate scripts and make movies, it means a lot to me to go against gender norms. My biggest thing now is making gender-equalizing movies, where you can put a male actor or a female actor in that role, and it would work the same way.”
2. There’s no stopping Chloë and her comrades from reaching for the sky.
“What my friends and I have in common is that we all strive to do something,” she told Seventeen in 2013. “They want to go to good colleges, be writers, publicists, fashion designers. Whatever it is they want to do, they know what they want and are gunning for it.”
3. She’s an advocate for girls everywhere and lets us know we don’t have to give in to the pressures of social media.
“I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites and male attention,” she told Glamour in the recently published post.
So happy to be part of this amazing cause to end cyber bullying!! Living in a society like ours which can be so focused on image, we have a tendency to label everything and judge everyone.. And it’s easy to overlook the consequences of our actions. A lot people who partake in cyber bullying don’t fully realize the impact and repercussions their hate will have. When you cyber bully you are bullying real people with real emotions. So let’s spread LOVE and not HATE!!! Let’s use the Internet to spread a wealth of POSITIVITY where we can all band together to make 2016 our most positive year yet!!! So please join me in the #kissandmakeup campaign !! All you have to do is kiss the back of your hand and post it on Social media with these tags !! #kissandmakeup @bystanderrevolution xx @tartecosmetics

4. She stretches the limits to be her very best self.
“I like to push myself as an actor and an artist, and directing, writing, producing, cinematography – all these are things that I haven’t accomplished yet,” she told Glamour. “They’re big life hurdles that I’ve set out in front of me, and they’re just waiting for me to take them on headfirst. So why not?”
5. She’s proud to set an example for other girls following in her career footsteps.
“For me, being a strong female in my own life has always been important,” she told Teen Vogue last December. “My mom kind of bred me into this strong woman from a very, very young age, just from looking up to her. I’ve always wanted to … have other young women look up to me and say, ‘Hey, that’s someone who stands up for their own and doesn’t take no for an answer. Someone who really makes decisions on what makes them happy and not what makes the most money or makes other people happy.’ ”
Keep being amazing Chloë, we can’t wait to see what you do next! We’re lucky to be empowered by so many young females these days. How excited are you for the book launch of one of our other faves, Anna Kendrick?
