Chloë Grace Moretz is just getting started on her comeback tour after taking a short hiatus from Hollywood.
Her first movie back? An independent film about the horrors of gay conversion therapy called The Miseducation of Cameron Post – something personally important to her as she has two gay brothers.
But another small film she did garnered most of its controversy well after she was done with it.
In I Love You, Daddy, Chloë played a teenager who had an affair with a film director in his 60s, played by John Malkovich. That isn’t the scandal — the scandal was that her father was played of comic Louis C.K., who also directed.
His sexual misconduct scandal came out just after the film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival; it was very quickly shelved.
In an interview in The New York Times about her next film, the 21-year-old was asked if it should be released after all this time. Her answer was unequivocal FIRE:
“No, I don’t think it should be. I think it should just kind of go away, honestly. I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now. Of course, it’s devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear. But at the same time, this movement is so powerful and so progressive that I’m just happy to be in communication with everyone and to see the big change in the face of the industry, which I think is very, very real.”
Yass! Loving how unselfish that perspective is!
BTW, from what we’ve heard from those who saw the movie, we aren’t missing much…
In any case, we have other Chloë projects to look forward to, including the animated Addams Family, a new film by The Crying Game filmmaker Neil Jordan, and the highly anticipated remake of Suspiria from Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me By Your Name!
But for the morbidly curious, the trailer for I Love You, Daddy is still available online (below)!
