Chloe Grace Moretz is one of those actresses who seems quite old, but it’s only because she’s been around since she was 8 years old, appearing in a horror film no less.

In fact, she’s only 18 and she’s already worked with some of Hollywood’s most established actors, actresses, directors and producers; oh and had designers clamouring to dress her in their latest threads.

This week sees her appear in Clouds of Sils Maria alongside Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart, the story is about the harsh reality of facing ourselves, when a veteran actress takes on the same role that launched her career 20 years earlier, and she has to see herself in a new light.

1. Dreams of college

She may have the career some people can only dream of, but Chloe just wants some normality like heading to college. She told refinery29 that when she turns 18 she wants to really focus on her career, but when she has the chance she wants to go to NYU. With plans to take some sporadic classes, she has interests in art history and cinematography.

2. Strong connection with her first film

Chloe’s first film role was back in 2005 when she was just eight years old, she appeared in the remake of The Amityville Horror as Chelsea ‘Missy’ Lutz, and even though she wasn’t allowed to watch the R-Rated movie when it was released she certainly held strong ties to it.

She named her two dogs after the film, one Missy after her character and the other Fuller after the producer of the movie, Bradley Fuller.

3. She's a little bit of a liar

After Kick-Ass, Moretz pretended to be British in her audition for Hugo because she had heard that Martin Scorsese wanted a British actress for the part. After winning the part, she admitted she was not British. She was expecting a really dark film, but it turned out to be the director's first family film. She told W magazine that she wore a wig to disguise herself and her audition tape was her using a British accent. When she was flown to New York, she kept up the lie that she was a British girl who followed her career and relocated to LA.
