Chloë Grace Moretz has “pulled the plug” on all of her movies, the 19-year-old actress told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.
Chloë had previously been slated to star in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. That said, we’re not sure what this means for the fate of the movie, or who will take Chloë’s place. (It’s still listed on Chloë’s IMDB page, but as the movie is only announced and not yet in production, things can change. Any other not-yet-released movies listed for Chloë are in post-production.)
Chloë told The Hollywood Reporter that she had begun to take on so many projects that she started to lose sight of why she went into acting in the first place. “I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again,” Chloë explained. “I’m realizing that I can slow down.”
However, Chloë isn’t completely disappearing from Hollywood. She told THR that she’s turning her focus to producing, and will be working on a couple of television shows.
We’re glad to see that Chloë is placing a priority on her personal growth and emotional health. She claimed her first role at age 7 and she’s been in over 50 films. We all need to take breaks from time to time, and even celebrities sometimes need a vacation from the spotlight.
