“This part is different from anything I’ve done,” Moretz said, adding that she learns a lot from her brother/mentor/acting coach, Trevor. “I’ve tried to absorb things I’ve learned from old movies. Trevor has taught me the importance of great movies in shaping culture. And it’s a good way to learn different styles of acting.”
Moretz, 16, is already a veteran actress, having a decade of work under her belt. She tells W that she doesn’t regret missing out on the regular teenage stuff because she belongs in front of a camera.
“To be honest, I feel most confident when I am in front of a camera. I’ve learned to think of myself in the third person. When I watch my scenes, I’ll say, ‘She could have done better.’”
