Gemma Arterton on Chloe Grace Moretz in ‘Kick Ass’

Actors on actors

“This isn’t a high-brow answer but I love that girl who was in ‘Kick-Ass,’ Chloe something Moretz. She has this confidence and sass, and knows how to deliver a line at the age of 13 in ways that grown actresses can’t. Having done some action movies where you have to deliver a one liner, I know how difficult it is — and to deliver it well you have to be a good actress.

Moretz has this real movie-star sass that you can’t manufacture. At the same time, there’s something controversial about her performance because it’s quite sexualized and she’s a young girl. It’s really clever because she still manages to be innocent — and that’s hard.”
