She may be a teenager, but Chloë Grace Moretz already has over 40 film and TV credits to her name.

Moretz got her start early, making her big screen debut at the age of 6 in "Amityville Horror," but it wasn't until 2010 that she broke out in bloody crowd-pleaser "Kick-Ass." Since her performance as the tough-as-nails Hit-Girl, the actress has turned in memorable starring performances in "Carrie" (2013) and "If I Stay" (2014). This fall, Moretz stars opposite Denzel Washington in the action-thriller "The Equalizer."

From her connection to Miley Cyrus to her unlikely acting coach, here are 17 things you probably don't know about Chloë Grace Moretz.

1. Chloë Grace Moretz was born February 10, 1997, in Atlanta, Georgia to Teri Duke and McCoy Lee Moretz.

Another poster for The Imitation Game starring Benedict Cumberbatch

25 September 2014 12:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we got a new poster for Morten Tyldum’s (Headhunters)’s World War II drama The Imitation Game, and now we have another one-sheet for the Toronto prize winner, which puts the focus squarely onto Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays the famed British codebreaker Alan Turing…

Read our review here

The Imitation Game is a dramatic portrayal of the life and work of one of Britain’s most extraordinary unsung heroes, Alan Turing. The pioneer of modern-day computing, Turing is credited with cracking the German Enigma code and the film is a nail-biting race against time by Turing and his brilliant team at Britain’s top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British Establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

Chloe Grace Moretz is taking on 24-year-old actresses for adult parts and winning

23 September 2014 6:24 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Toronto - Chloe Grace Moretz has been working in the movie and TV business before she turned 7-years-old.  She's played a Hit Girl, a vampire, a horror movie icon and, most recently, a young woman deciding whether to come out of a coma or not in "If I Stay."  It's safe to say, however, that Moretz's role in Antoine Fuqua's "The Equalizer" is her toughest yet.  The again, most 16-year-olds aren't playing prostitutes in an R-rated action flick. Speaking to HitFix before the world premiere of "Equalizer" in Toronto earlier this month, Moretz talked about her character,  Teri, a young Russian immigrant who has found herself trapped in the clutches of a mob boss who pimps her to the rich and not-so rich men of Boston.  Luckily, Teri has a guardian angel watching her in Robert (Denzel Washington), a friendly man she has casual conversations with at a local dinner every night. »

Check Out Colin Firth as an Action Star!

23 September 2014 11:21 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Another movie based on a comic book is coming at you, and this one has Colin Firth! He stars as a secret service agent who recruits a mixed-up young kid (Taron Egerton) in Kingsman: The Secret Service. Director Matthew Vaughn (X-Men: First Class) actually cowrote the comic book with his Kick-Ass collaborator Mark Millar, so it should be a pretty faithful adaptation. It's cool to see Colin Firth fling a beer mug at a guy using an umbrella handle, especially when it's set to a new track from Iggy Azalea and Ellie Goulding. Have I mentioned Samuel L. Jackson plays a ridiculous-looking villain? This is a must watch. The movie is set for a Feb. 13 release date, so stay tuned for more footage and pictures until then! »

Chloë Grace Moretz Has "Allure"

23 September 2014 9:53 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Sneak Peek new images and footage of "Kick-Ass" actress Chloë Grace Moretz on the set of her September 2014 'Old Hollywood'-inspired "Allure" magazine fashion shoot:

"I have an old soul," said Moretz, "so I can understand things that I don't think a lot of people can at my age."

"'Feminism', to me, is standing up for everything that someone else has already done for you. My mom has overcome so much in her life. She makes me want to stand up for myself.

"Stand up to the studio heads who try to tell me that I can't have blonde hair. They want brown hair. Or I need bigger boobs, or I need to work out.

"Or I'm too skinny, so, like, 'Eat a cheeseburger.' I stand up for myself every day of my life. I grew up in a family of four boys. I'm, like, a born feminist.

Kingsman: The Secret Service - New Action-Packed Trailer

23 September 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

20th Century Fox has released an awesome new trailer for Matthew Vaughn's new film Kingsman: The Secret Service. The trailer features loads of new adrenaline-fueled footage, and it features a new song by Iggy Azaela. It also looks like there are still some unfinished special effects — at least I hope they are unfinished. Regardless, the flick still looks like it will be a ridiculously good time.

The movie is based on the comic book created by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons, and it tells the story of "a super-secret spy organization that recruits an unrefined but promising street kid into the agency's ultra-competitive training program just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius."

The movie basically comes from the same team of talent that gave us Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class. It stars Colin Firth, Michael Caine, Taron Egerton, and Samuel L. Jackson. Kingsman: The Secret Service »

Kingsman: The Secret Service Trailer Hits With New Music

23 September 2014 6:25 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Kingsman: The Secret Service is a film that makes it difficult to settle on a level of expectation. That isn’t surprising if you consider the Matthew Vaughn connection, because it was pretty tricky to figure out where you were when walking into Kick-Ass too.

Colin Firth is a secret agent who takes on a prodigy that no one believes in, and there’s nothing more obvious about the trailer than how closely it resembles the feel and plot path of a comic. Well, and it also looks crazy fun.

Vaughn already took his shot at turning superheros upside-down, now it’s the spy genre, and you’re going to want to check this one out.

New Trailer For Kingsman: The Secret Service

23 September 2014 4:07 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

When the first trailer for Kingsman: The Secret Service was released some months ago, it was somewhat underwhelming. The footage selected for inclusion made it seem more like an earth-bound Men In Black reboot than an adaptation of The Secret Service comic series by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons (creators of Kick-Ass). It seems we need not have worried, though, because all the trailer needed was more Colin Firth – and that’s exactly what we get in the new trailer, which was  just released by 20th Century Fox.

This comic book adaptation comes from the pen of Matthew Vaughn and Jane Goldman – who previously adapted Kick-Ass with great success – and Vaughn is in the director’s chair once again. That in itself is an outstanding pedigree, but once you add in the source material and epic cast, it is easy to why such excitement is building around this upcoming release. »
