Interview: Chloe Moretz

By PETER KEOUGH  |  August 24, 2010

I guess you don't kill anybody in his movie.
No, definitely not. This is a very wholesome film. The story's about a young boy. It's set in the 1930s, and he goes on this crazy adventure through a Parisian train station. I play a girl named Isabelle. She's a fun, witty, bookish-type girl. She really loves loves loves books.

As you probably know, Martin Scorsese directed Jodie Foster inTaxi Driver when she was around your age. Do you have any role models among actresses who started young and went on to have great careers?
Natalie Portman's my number-one kind of idol-type person. She's so smart and well-rounded, but at the same time such a phenomenal actress. She's really who I aspire to be as an actress.

Did you see her playing a 12-year-old in Luc Besson'sLéon: The Professional? It's kind of likeKick-Ass.
I wasn't allowed to see Léon: The Professional, but I saw parts of it, and the parts that I did see were inspiring.

Have you been in touch with her?
I wish! I haven't met her yet. But you know her new film, Black Swan, with Darren Aronofsky? I went and I saw the ending of the movie get scored, which was amazing. It was the first time I've ever seen a movie get scored. I got to see some lost footage of her, so I was freaking out, and he was like, I'll have to tell Natalie that you love her. And I was like, 'OMYGOSH!" I was like, "Pleeeeeease!"

Are you afraid that somebody your age working a lot as an actor might lose out on your childhood?
Definitely not. I have so many friends, and I do school 24/7. School in our family comes first.

Is there going to be a sequel toKick-Ass?
I would love to do a sequel to Kick-Ass. But we don't know yet. The director of Kick-Ass is right now doing X-Men. After that, who knows? It would be fun to portray Hit-Girl in a different light, more mature and more knowing than she used to be.
