Chloe Grace Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Chloe's first 2 appearances were as Violet in two episodes of The Guardian (2001), on TV. Her first movie role was as Molly in Heart of the Beholder (2005), a story about a family who opened the first video cassette store in 1980. This was followed by a small role in Family Plan (2005) as Young Charlie.
But after that came Chloe's biggest role, and the role that made her famous. In 2005's remake of The Amityville Horror (2005), Chloe plays Chelsea "Missy" Lutz.
Chloe's career had become even better after her talent was recognized in The Amityville Horror (2005) and her other appearances. She was landed a small role in Today You Die (2005) as the Little girl, and she has recently completed Room 6 (2006) and Big Momma's House 2 (2006).
Chloe has just returned from Bulgaria where she filmed Wicked Little Things (2006), in which she plays Emma Tunney. She is currently filming The Third Nail (2007). Her character is Hailey Deonte.
She loves gymnastics, ballet, and basketball. She also loves to swim and play with her dogs.
At the time of the The Amityville Horror (2005) premiere, Chloe was not allowed to see the movie.
Chloe had to walk on and dangle from the top of a 60-foot high house for The Amityville Horror (2005), and only had a couple of wires and a harness holding her. She was cautious at first, but according to director Andrew Douglas, she began to think it was fun within an hour.
She likes comedies and ballet.
Was considered for the role of Lili in Case 39 (2009), which went to Jodelle Ferland.

On April 15, 2011, Chloe announced via YouTube and Twitter that she had signed on to the Tim Burton film Dark Shadows (2012). She will go back to London in May 2011 to begin filming where she will star as Carolyn Stoddard.

On March 27, 2012, MGM announced that Moretz had been officially cast as "Carrie" in the reboot of the 1976 film of the same name, Carrie (1976). Prior to the announcement, Moretz had been one of two remaining actresses, alongside Haley Bennett, in contention for the role, after Shailene Woodley had declined.

Frequently played dark characters in R rated movies during her child and teenage career
"This one day I was playing and I was swinging and I had my wires on and I flew off the edge and then I [panicked]. But they said, 'You're fine. You have wires on'." [In her scene on the top of the roof at The Amityville Horror (2005)].
My mom has always said that if I get a big head, she'll take me out of this business as quickly as I got into it.
If I ever uttered one word that I said in Kick-Ass (2010), I would be grounded for years! I'd be stuck in my room until I was 20! I would never in a million years say that. I'm an average, everyday girl; when I act with my friends, I'm totally immature, I have to go to bed at 9:30, and, if I'm up late on the computer, I lose it for two months.
I hope to make acting my career for the rest of my life, if I can. If acting doesn't work out I'd love to produce, direct, or write. I just want to stay in this business. That would be my number one thing. I always want to be an actress.
[on her stunts in Kick-Ass (2010)] I had amazing people training me. It was easy because I'd done ballet and gymnastics before. It all kind of went together and basically all of it was me. It was a really great thing.
[on playing "Hit Girl" in Kick-Ass (2010)] It's a role - it's not meant to be taken as real-life. I was raised to think cursing makes you look unintelligent. As Chloe, I can honestly say I've never uttered a syllable of a curse word, not even behind closed doors.
[on going to Kick-Ass (2010)] I strongly advise no one under the legal age of 18 to see it.
I think Mr. Martin Scorsese looked at me as a daughter figure because he has a daughter who is, like, 12 years old... he was very fatherly towards me.
In my age range there's not many people to date... maybe Ryan Gosling... we could just drive around.
When I was a little girl, I used to soak up everything... I would soak up like these huge, dramatic dialogues and start spewing them all the time.
When you do a lot of kid movies, that can be a problem. You were a little sister type, and then all of a sudden you're a prostitute and people don't like it. Unless, like Jodie Foster, that's how you start off. And I'm similar because the first time anyone really saw me was in Kick-Ass (2010), killing people. So I don't think I'll have that kind of trouble.
I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it. I will delete you, and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers. My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it's life.
[regarding the bullying of her family via Twitter] I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it. I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers.
[on her parent's divorce and her mother's cancer diagnosis] It made me realize, along with everything that happened with my dad, that your parents aren't these godly figures. They're not chosen by the heavens. They're humans. Their bodies can fail and they can die at any moment. They make mistakes. They cry. They fight. It definitely, from a young age, put everything into perspective for me.
