Chloe Grace Moretz Speaks Out About Jim Carrey's KICK-ASS 2 Statement

Actor Jim Carrey, who portrays Colonel Stars and Stripes in Jeff Wadlow's upcoming "Kick-Ass 2", went on record a couple of months ago saying that he wouldn't promote the film because he could not support that level of violence included in it, after the Sandy Hook shooting. Now actress Chloe Grace Moretz, who plays Hit Girl in the film, has responded to the statement with some apparent frustration.

Moretz stated the following:

"It's a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn't go to see Pocahontas because you are going to think you are a Disney princess. If you are that easily swayed, you might see The Silence of the Lambs and think you are a serial killer. It's a movie and it's fake, and I've known that since I was a kid ... I don't want to run around trying to kill people and cuss (in real life). If anything, these movies teach you what not to do."

Regardless of your sentiments on what Carrey said and did, you've got to admire the eloquence of Moretz's words. She's only 16 years old, a very talented actress and is incredibly insightful and mature.

"Kick-Ass" is no documentary. It's a fun and violent adventure, for pure entertainment value. I did have my heart set of being a Disney princess though, is she telling me that it's not going to happen?

What do you think of Moretz's statement? Let us know in the comments section below!

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
