There aren’t a lot of child actors and actresses who are able to replicate that same success into their adulthood, but Chloë Grace Moretz is one of the lucky ones. After years of portraying child and teenage characters back in the 2000s, Moretz is now all grown up. The 24-year-old is a versatile actress who’s fluent in comedy, thriller, romance, and even horror genres.
However, it wasn’t until 2016’s Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising that Moretz’s career elevated to a new level. Sharing the stage with the likes of top names, like Zac Efron, Dave Franco, and Seth Rogan, the movie was a box office success with over $100 million in gross. Where does she go from there? Well, here’s what Chloë Grace Moretz has been up to since the movie premiered.
10 ‘Reassessed’ Her Roles
Despite the success of Neighbors 2, Moretz revealed that since then, she’s been a lot pickier about the roles she wants to portray and audition for. Speaking to E!, the actress said that despite not taking a break from movies per-se, she’d become a lot more particular when it comes to the role she’s choosing.
“I think it’s my time, right now in my life, to figure out who I am and what I am and what I want and what this industry means,” she said.
9 Ventured Into Voice-Acting For Animated Shows/Movies

The black comedy film, which gained over $204 million in the box office, was such an important cornerstone of Moretz’s career.
8 Involved In A Controversial ‘Snow White’ Ad
In the same year, Moretz also portrayed Snow White in the animated film, Red Shoes and the Seven Dwarfs. However, the movie’s road to the premier was a little rocky because of its controversial ad, which had been accused of body shaming. Moretz, as one of the cast members, took the responsibility even though it was something out of her creative reach.
“The actual story is powerful for young women and resonated with me,” the actress took to social media. “I am sorry for the offense that was beyond my creative control.”

Moretz has also been an outspoken celebrity for the LGBTQ community.
“We put so many labels on so many things in our society, and my big issue is not just the fact that people are against LGBT. It’s the fact that we have to come out and say who we’re interested in,” the actress told HuffPost Live.
4 Got Candid About Her Experience With An Eating Disorder
Moretz has also been candid about her “unhealthy” relationship with food and her past eating disorder. In 2017, the actress spoke to Variety about her experience of being fat-shamed by male co-stars on set.
