Chlo├â┬½ Grace Moretz knows the struggles of being young in Hollywood.
At 16 she actually contemplated going under the knife:
“I wanted a boob job. I wanted the fat pad under my chin to be removed. I wanted a butt reduction, or whatever. And my mom said, ‘Absolutely not, you’re not allowed to have plastic surgery.’ And because of that, I found a lot of power within my insecurities. They’re what make me who I am now.”
But the now 19-year-old says that it’s all about finding that balance of loving who you are while dealing with the pressure to work out all the time. CGM admitted:
“When I signed onto the Coach ads, we were all on the same page that the hair and the makeup are things you could do in real life. I try to break barriers. I try to not post Instagrams where I Facetune my face and I wear a ton of makeup. I want to be as natural as can be. And I want to break it down for young women so they understand that you’re not just ‘born’ like this. Yes, I have had hair extensions. Yes, the reason I have this body is because I work out seven times a week. Yes, I eat really clean├óΓé¼ΓÇ¥even though I don’t always want to, and I definitely cheat. But you’re not just born with this. Sometimes you have to fight for and work for things, and be happy with who you are at the same time. And that’s a really hard balance but I want to show it to young women.”
Of course, she also says it helps her boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham, is on her side:
“My boyfriend is a huge support. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I don’t need a man for anything, but when I’m feeling bad about myself, he’s like, ‘Stop. Look at what you say in interviews. Look at what you stand for. Listen to your own words, because you’re as beautiful as you say you are! All young women are more beautiful than they think, you know. And I like you more in sweatpants than I do when you’re on a red carpet.’ And it’s nice to have a young man who’s 17 years old be able to look at a woman that way. I think it means we’re on the right track.”
And just as a fun tidbit, the Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising starlet also dished how she and Beckham swap fragrances:
“My boyfriend and I use each other’s cologne. He’ll wear my female version; I’ll wear his male version.”
They definitely sound like they’re going strong!
We’re glad she’s found someone a great support system… you know, like the one she has with new BFF Meghan Trainor:
“We met at an awards show. She came up to me and was like, ‘I love you, I want to be best friends with you, let’s do this.’ We’re really good friends because we hate the system. We hate the BS. We sit there and we’re like, ‘We’re stupid. We’re ridiculous. Let’s show all the girls out there that none of this is real, and you should just have fun.'”
