Chloe Grace Moretz is not backing down and is standing by what she tweeted out to Kim Kardashian in response to the naked selfie posted by the reality personality.
The selfie caused a negative backlash; celebrities like Bette Midler, Pink, and Moretz called out the Reality star, while many defended her by saying that she is free to be proud of her body and show it off publicly.https://twitter.com/ChloeGMoretz/status/706986603810394112 https://twitter.com/ChloeGMoretz/status/706987946633637888
It wasn't long before Kim Kardashian struck back at the actress. In her tweet she called out Moretz on her fame and implied that she is being a hypocrite , when she referred to the young Movie star's revealing Nylon cover.https://twitter.com/KimKardashian/status/707082941386461185
Speaking to Elle for their March issue, Chloe Grace Moretz talked about that now infamous series of tweets.
"All I'll say is that I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways" the actress said. "And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind."
She also called on her detractors to look deeper into the message she was trying to say; "I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn't be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things."https://twitter.com/ChloeGMoretz/status/707011823686393856 https://twitter.com/ChloeGMoretz/status/707011849158402049
She then defended her Nylon cover, stating that it different from an Instagram naked selfie, because it is largely art in support of her work " I think that's also a lot more based on artwork, so that's a little bit of a different conversation. Like, if I'm talking to a photographer, I'm talking to a stylist, I'm talking to a makeup artist, we're kind of creating and collaborating and making something that is artwork and is special and is different."
She also stated in the same interview that she avoids roles where females are sexualized, but "it's not even roles where females are sexualized, it's where they're overtly sexualized in a masculine, stereotypical (way) " she explained. She also pointed out that she is fine with female sexuality in movies if there is substance and not just for the sake of it "If they are sexualized, do it in a way in which the character feels they're being adequately depicted, in a sense. It all depends on the time period of the movie, or the context of the movie." she said.
