Chloë Grace Moretz’s Reaction to Kim Kardashian’s Tweet: ‘I Started Laughing'
Actress Chloë Grace Moretz is gracing the cover of Glamour's June issue, where she opened up about her Twitter feud with Kim Kardashian and her private relationship with Brooklyn Beckham.
In March, Moretz made headlines for her Twitter exchange with Kim, who had just posted a naked selfie on her social media accounts. The 17-year-old reflected on the beef, saying, “I had just gotten off a plane from South Korea, I was incredibly jet-lagged, and I couldn't take one more thing. I saw that photo, and I had to say something. That picture wasn't linked to body confidence. It wasn't a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see... I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention... I wasn't slut-shaming. It's not about body-shaming.”
After seeing the pic, Moretz tweeted to Kim, "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.” Kim responded to Chloë's comment, tweeting, "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is. your nylon cover is cute boo."
How did Chloë feel about Kim's reaction? She shared, “I started laughing. I was at dinner with my family [when] I got the notification [on my phone]. I look at it and I go, 'Oh, my God. She responded.' My mom took the most offense to it because it was girl-on-girl hate and Kim didn't come back with an educated response on body confidence. It was aggressive, and also it was incorrect. I don't have 45 million followers or a TV show that follows my life. But people know who I am. I pride myself on having opinions, and I don't express them in snarky ways toward people.”
Chloë and Kim's spat was a public affair, but her dating life is a whole other story. Chloë and Brooklyn seemingly confirmed their relationship on Instagram recently, but she stresses the importance of privacy. She explained, “Because it's no one's business. These moments are supposed to be so personal and special — you're building a foundation with someone or just having fun and going on a date. No one needs to know about that, and I hate to see that stuff broadcast on TV.”
