Chloe Moretz Takes a Shot at Jim Carrey’s Stance on Kick-Ass 2
A while back, star of the upcoming Kick-Ass 2, Jim Carrey took to his twitter account to inform fans that he would not support the film and refused to do any press work or promoting of the sequel. His reasoning was that due tot he tragic events that occurred at Sandy Hook Elementary, he couldn’t stand behind a film that promotes violence. for the most part, his co-stars have been somewhat supportive, saying that each person is allowed their own opinion. Just the other day, the film’s director, Jeff Wadlow, along with the comic’s creator Mark Millar and a couple of Carrey’s co-stars, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Chloe Moretz all said that they respect Carrey’s opinion and his stance on the issue, with Millar going as far as the actor’s withdrawal of support has help the film and will drive more fans to theaters to see just how violent the film can be.
It seems, however, that Chloe Moretz was holding back a bit and her true feelings are coming to the surface and she isn’t beating around the bush. Moretz slams Carrey in a new interview with The Sun, essentially saying that just because you see it on film, doesn’t mean that’s what you’ll become.
“It’s a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn’t go to see ‘Pocahontas’ because you are going to think you are a Disney princess. “If you are that easily swayed, you might see ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ and think you are a serial killer. It’s a movie and it’s fake, and I’ve known that since I was a kid … I don’t want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do.”
The 16-year-old actress does reiterate that she respects Carrey’s opinion, saying “To each their own.” Regardless, those are pretty harsh words. So far, Carrey hasn’t responded much to questions on the issue, and since his announcement that he was puling support, he’s been rather quiet. We’ll have to see if this gets a rise out of him.
How do you feel about the situation? Do you think Carrey is being a bit childish about the situation or is he in the right? The events that occurred at Sandy Hook were certainly tragic and it had a big impact on some people. Regardless, Kick-Ass 2 arrives in theaters later this month and stars Aaron Taylor Johnson, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jim Carrey and Clark Duke.
