Chloe Grace Moretz Defends Feud With Kim Kardashian: “I Wasn’t Catty”
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, Moretz was one of a few stars who took issue with the nude selfie Kardashian posted on social media in March. She tweeted to the reality star, “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.”
Some in turn accused the actress of slut-shaming, leading her to insist, “There’s a huge difference in respecting the platform that you’re given as a celebrity and ‘slut shaming’ something I never have done and would never do.” Kardashian didn’t quite see it that way, though, and cracked in response, “let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo.”
Asked about the exchange and the Twitter storm that ensued, Moretz now tells InStyle, “I’ve never been afraid to have my own voice and to speak my own mind. I wasn’t catty about it.” She goes on to note, “A lot of people came back and said, ‘You’re wrong.’ I was like, ‘You might disagree with me and that’s great. Let’s have a debate.’ At least I believe in something.”
In the aforementioned Nylon issue, Moretz explained why she turned down an invitation to join Taylor Swift’s “squad,” and she reiterates that stance now. “No one really puts herself in the shoes of the girl that’s not in the squad — and that was always me,” she argues. Something else she isn’t on board with?
Two words: Donald Trump. “At first, I was like, ‘Look at this silly, loud-mouthed dude running for president. That will never be a reality,'” says the star. “Then it became this really strong, nasty, dark undercurrent supporting him and funding him to influence the masses. It’s shocking.”
As Gossip Cop has noted, Moretz is all about Team Hillary. She even tells the magazine, “I was so star-struck when I met her that I couldn’t breathe. I cried to her face!” Moretz’s full InStyle issue will hit newsstands on April 28.
