With Chloe Grace Moretz’s If I Stay hitting theaters this weekend, it seemed like the perfect time to declare our love for entertainment most memorable Chloes.
She’s been blowing us away for decades, first astonishing us in 1995’s Kids, before going on to films like Boys Don’t Cry, American Psycho and Zodiac (as well as HBO’s Big Love) — all of which betray a deep reservoir of talent.
Chloe Grace Moretz
The one-time Hit Girl has blossomed into an actress of almost frightening range — able to kill it in horror (Carrie, Let Me In), comedy (30 Rock), kid-fare (Hugo, Diary of a Wimpy Kid), comic book action (the Kick-Ass films) and straight-up drama (this weekend’s new release, If I Stay).
Amanda Seyfried played this title character, a prostitute who gets hired by Julianne Moore’s suspecting wife to try and seduce her husband (Liam Neeson), in the 2009 film. Hit YouTube for a few clips. You’ll concur re: her awesomeness.
As played by Mary Lynn Rajskub, this character is the real reason to watch 24. If an episode goes by without Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer screaming “Damnit, Chloe!” then it’s not a real episode.
This cosplay princess was born with strong geek cred: Her father, John, was the supervisor of the team that formed George Lucas’ famed special effects company, Industrial Light and Magic. But Chloe forged her own path as an actress, model, and television host (of Syfy’s Heroes of Cosplay).
While her character on ABC’s Agents of SHIELD might not have been the most worthy of screen time, Bennet is bringing as much as she can to the role.
If there’s ever a list that being the least objectionable Kardashian should grant you inclusion on, it’s this one.
