“I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now,” the actress said about her co-star, who was accused by five women of sexual misconduct in November.
Chloe Grace Moretz believes that I Love You, Daddy, the film she starred in alongside Louis C.K., should not be released.
“I don’t think it should be. I think it should just kind of go away, honestly,” she told The New York Times about the film’s release in a story published on Friday (Aug. 10).
The New York premiere of I Love You, Daddy was canceled just hours before the event was set to begin in November. The New York Times published an story later that day that included testimonials from five women that accused C.K. of sexual misconduct. The film’s distributor, The Orchard, announced that they would not move forward with the release of the film. Moretz is currently on the big screen in the gay-conversion-therapy film The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
“I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now,” the actress said, seemingly referring to men like CK who’ve been accused of sexual misconduct. “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,” she said.
I Love You, Daddy tells the story of a successful TV writer-producer (C.K.) who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter (Moretz) from starting a romantic relationship with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). C.K. starred in, wrote, directed and produced the film.
