Chloë Grace Moretz

Sometimes even celebrities need to take a break. Being in the almost never-ending cycle of tabloid news can wear out even the toughest among us, with paparazzi always looking to get the next juicy scoop to exploit. That's why Chloë Grace Moretz is hitting the brakes a bit. The 19-year-old actress was the subject of a lot of gossip and paparazzi over her dating life and feud with some family called the Kardashian's these last few weeks, which is why she's taking some time off to recharge her batteries and reevaluate the roles she picks.

Chloë Grace Moretz was in attendance at Deauville, where the young actress received the French film festival's Rising Star Award. The Hollywood Reporter caught of with Moretz, where she revealed that she had pulled out of all her upcoming film projects. Having filmed several movie roles in under a year, the actress stated that she needed time to remember why she became an actor in the first place.

[I] had a 'Come to Jesus' moment. ... So I pulled the plug on all my movies because I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again. I'm realizing that I can slow down.

With only 19 years on this Earth, Moretz already has 55 film roles under her belt, so she certainly hasn't been starved for work. One can hardly blame Moretz for wanting to pull back on the throttle. The past few weeks have seen Moretz as the subject of tabloid speculation centered around her love life and whether she was still in a relationship with her boyfriend, Brooklyn Beckham. She's also been locked in a social media feud with the Kardashians that began earlier this year. The negativity was weighing her down, but it seems to have lead to a positive personal revelation for the Kick-Ass actress.

As far as her future projects are concerned, Moretz wrapped up back-to-back filming for the psychological drama Brain on Fire and the thriller November Criminals, both of which are expecting a 2016 release. Moretz was slated to star in a live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid (that would make oodles of money), but now that she's pulled out, the fate of that movie is unknown. While she's taking a break from acting, Moretz will be trying her hand at producing. She's currently shopping around two new TV shows.

Chloë Grace Moretz has been acting since 2004, and got her first big film role 2005's Amityville Horror reboot. Her breakout performance came when she starred as the scene-stealing Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, where she curse, stabbed and murdered her way into our hearts. Some other of her roles include The Fifth Wave, Hugo, guest appearances on 30 Rock and this summer's Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising.
