Chloë Grace Moretz has become one of the most familiar faces at red carpet events all over the world. She started acting at the age of seven in films such as The Guardian (2001 TV Movie), Heart of the Beholder, The Amityville Horror, (500) Days of Summer, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Big Momma's House 2 and in TV series like Desperate Housewives and Dirty Sexy Money.
Her parents, Terri (a nurse) and McCoy Lee Moretz (a plastic surgeon), along with her four older brothers Brandon, Trevor, Colin and Ethan, complete her "very Christian" family. Trevor "Duke" is also an actor and happens to be Moretz's acting coach. Together with their mom, Trevor and Chloë moved from Cartersville, Georgia to New York in 2002 because Trevor was accepted into the Professional Performing Arts School, which got his little sister interested in acting. They moved to Los Angeles with the rest of her family in 2004.
Chloë Moretz' breakthrough role came in 2010 when she appeared as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass, directed by Matthew Vaughn and based on Mark Millar and John Romita Jr.'s graphic novel. She also appeared in Let Me In that same year as a 12-year-old vampire who befriends and protects a 12-year-old boy boy named Owen.
Martin Scorsese's Hugo marked Moretz' status in Hollywood. This film adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret was a winner in the 2012 Oscars, along with The Artist.
Moretz has worked with other big names in the industry like Tim Burton, who directed in Dark Shadows. She will star in a readaptation of Stephen King's Carrie and has signed on to The Drummer.
