Chloe Grace Moretz was told she was ‘too pretty’ for lead role in ‘Carrie’ remake, new bloody photo

Chloë Grace Moretz has revealed that she was initially told she was “too pretty” to star in Carrie.

The Kick-Ass star plays an emotionally damaged teen who takes out supernatural revenge on her tormentors in the upcoming remake, which also stars Julianne Moore.

“When I was auditioning for Carrie, I was told, ‘Well, look, you’re too young, you’re too pretty, you’re too accomplished’,” Moretz recalled.

Moretz went on to insist that she used that resistance as fuel to prove all of those doubters wrong once filming on Carrie began.

“I love showing people I can do something that they might think I will never be able to do,” she explained. “Playing someone who’s happy-go-lucky and has a good life and a nice family – it’s boring for me.”

The star added: “[Being happy is] my life. I have a good family. My mom loves me. I like being challenged, playing characters that are a little messed up.”

The film also stars Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, and Ansel Elgort.

The film will be released on October 18, 2013.
