Chloe Moretz covers Dazed & Confused as a cute goth: gorgeous or too much?

Chloe Moretz

Chloe Moretz covers the November issue of Dazed & Confused. I usually enjoy her photoshoots because she has the ability to transform herself and play a role beyond “fashion girl” when promoting a movie. Remember her recent old-school spread in Glamour? It’s so hard to believe this girl is really only 16 years old.

Chloe is promoting her lead role in the Carrie remake, which comes out this weekend. I wasn’t impressed by the trailer, and most horror remakes are just awful anyway. However, this is really the only horror movie in wide release for the Halloween season, so it will probably do just fine at the box office. That would be great news for Chloe, who already has stinkers like Dark Shadows and Let Me In on her resumé. She’s such a good actress too!

This Dazed & Confused shoot comes by itself without any excerpts, so I’ve cobbled together some bits and pieces from other outlets:

Chloe Moretz

Chloe on Julianne Moore: “She is probably my favorite, I mean, I learned so much from her. She has everything. She has everything you want, she’s beautiful, she’s smart, she’s funny, I mean it’s like why can’t we all be Julianne Moore?”

Julianne on Chloe: “She’s so delightful. I mean, she was 15 when we shot this and she’s very professional, really talented, very engaging and wants to do well and great work. I love her. I loved being with her. She was a great partner and I wanted to make sure that she felt safe with me and that anything could happen and that I was not going to hurt her and that we could kind of explore this relationship together.”

She never watched the first Carrie: “I deliberately haven’t watched the original movie. I’m sure what Sissy Spacek and Brian De Palma did was phenomenal, but I didn’t want to end up copying any performances. I wanted to make my Carrie come to life and not steal someone else’s Carrie.”

On scary movies:” I was never traumatized by a movie. I would get terrified and then I would get really excited, and I was like ‘what is this feeling?!’”

[From E! Online, Empire & EW.com]

I agree with Chloe about horror movies. Most of them aren’t scary at all and make me laugh, which is part of the fun. Sinister still scares me a little bit if I don’t draw the shades at night. I know that’s a pretty lame admission. We’re all scared by different (usually silly) stuff.

Can you believe Chloe never watched the original Carrie? That seems gutsy.

Here’s Chloe outside Jimmy Fallon last week. She seems so mature but in a good way.

    I love the pictorial. I don’t love a remake of Carrie.

    • Side-Eye says:

      Same. It’s amazing to me how dull and lifeless this movie looks emotionally. And the girls look more like they should be on a Hollister/American Eagle poster and their acting does nothing to combat that either. And as much as I like Chloe? Her as Carrie is just…no.

      • Kiddo says:

        Yes. I read a good analysis yesterday, I forget where, but it said that the original Carrie slowly built dread psychologically, which in my eyes, is far more frightening. I get the impression that is one is more about special effects, booming, explosions, loud noises and whatnot.

      • Kiddo says:

        “this” one, not “is” one.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t see the harm in a remake. It has been so long, and if anything this might draw attention to the original. Perhaps some younger people might see this version and get curious enough to watch the original. I don’t agree with the idea that there should be film sacred cows that should never be recreated. That leads to them being forgotten.

      Carrie contains two VERY strong female characters. I think it would be amazing to see this movie done 10 times over with different women in the roles, each version would show us something new. Also, I fully support any reason for a studio to make a film that rests in the hands of two great actresses. We need MORE women carrying films, not less.

  2. blue marie says:

    I absolutely love scary movies, and will probably see this one soon even though I’m a fan of the original.

    I think the reason there aren’t a whole lot of good (big budget anyway) scary movies is because there’s no build up. They’re in the business of making slasher flicks, not scary movies. It’s an all out gore fest, gore for the sake of gore. And that’s never scary.

    My silly scares, ghost movies & Children of the Corn.

    • Claudia says:

      Exactly– these days it’s all about slasher flicks and torture porn… which is why when regular ol’ horror movies come out on a string budget they end up being a sleeper hit (e.g. Paranormal Activity… although I wasn’t a fan) and the studios are shocked. They should take note! More suspense, more story, more psychological horror… and less of the gory shock value stuff (which is usually used to over-compensate for how shitty the story is).

      Also wanted to add: the first and last picture from the magazine spread are amazing. Love the punk vibe.

  3. Shrubee says:

    She looks like Zoe Kravitz in the first picture. I actually thought it was kravitz

  4. Dani2 says:

    I love her, this girl has so much potential and she has one of those interesting, memorable faces, she doesn’t just look like another cute blonde, I’m seeing the Carrie movie, not too sure what to expect, don’t think it’ll live up to the original but it might not be that bad.

  5. Dawn says:

    So yep I gotta say that I love the pics! They are just very, very cool and make me want to see more.

  6. pretty says:

    wow i thought she was Dan Humphry’s girlfriend. You know, Cinna’s daughter..
    Hairstyle is soooo important really. she doesn’t look good here at all, let’s just say that. haha!

  7. eliza says:

    I would like to see more of the potential cutie holding her hand.

  8. Mayda says:

    She looks cute and not overly sexual. I’m fine with it.

  9. REALLY???? says:

    what she is wearing on the street is worse than the photoshoot

  10. PrettyTarheelFan says:

    Kayley Hooper! I cannot believe she’s only 16 years old. It says a lot about her as an actress, but it also makes me a little nervous for her. Lainey always cautioned against her, and I can’t remember why now. Something about the way she was being presented several years ago (during the first Kick Ass)…
    Gotta go do some research.

  11. ZigZagZoey says:

    Okay….I never really go to the movies…Much rather be in sweats at home.
    But I just don’t understand why anyone would pay money for the movie theater to see a movie where you know EVERYTHING that happens.
    I just don’t get it.
    Oh well, I don’t even get why people buy movie dvd’s for a movie they have already seen, or a tv show box set. I rarely watch anything twice, and some of those things are pretty expensive. Just seems like a huge waste of money to sit on a shelf.
    Maybe I’m just cheap? :lol:

    • Kiddo says:

      I may buy a DVD of a classic. Something that can be watched over and yet something new can be taken away from it, or the enjoyment is fresh each time. I own Casablanca, Babes in Toyland, Arsenic and Old Lace, and some Marx Brothers movies. They are old, but never get old.

  12. the other Kate says:

    about horror movies: I’m 30 and I’m still afraid of Candyman :D there’s no way i would say 3x Candyman in front of the mirror

    • DumbGoldylocks says:

      The Other Kate, Candyman completely traumatized me as a kid too! To this day I cannot go into a dark bathroom… my power once went out while I was in the shower & I cannot begin to describe the sound of the scream that I let out!

  13. nomi says:

    Her precocious maturity reminds me of Dakota Fanning.

    • neelyo says:

      Maybe that’s why I don’t like her. I never liked Fanning either because she seemed so rehearsed and phony. I get the same vibe from Moretz except she resembles a 40 year old divorcee.

  14. Klue says:

    who’s the tattoed guy?

  15. WendyNerd says:

    I love Chloe Moretz and I liked Let Me In. I didn’t like it as much as the book or the original movie, but I thought it was quite good.

  16. Anonymous says:

    She kinda looks like Kylie Jenner in the pictures

  17. Tiffany :) says:

    I think she might do a great job at Carrie. I think it is an interesting female role, it is so unique! I am curious to see another great actress explore it.

    I am really used to theatre though, so I am used to seeing things reworked. I don’t know why people act like some movies are too precious to touch. If anything, remakes draw attention (and potential new fans) to the original.

  18. serena says:

    She looks wonderful! Anyway I love what she said “why can’t we all be Julianne Moore?” that’s just about right.
