Chloë Grace Moretz worked with Louis C.K. on his film I Love You Daddy, but its late 2017 release date was scrapped when sexual harassment allegations were brought forward against the comic. Moretz has always been a progressive and feminist voice in Hollywood, so many were curious about her feelings regarding the allegations, especially considering her starring role in his film.
Shortly after I Love You Daddy‘s distribution was pulled, Deadline reported that C.K. was trying to get back the rights to the film in hopes that he could distribute it himself. Moretz told the August 11th, 2018 issue of The New York Times that she hopes the film isn’t released.
Moretz’s sentiment is important to hear, especially when some are wondering how these men are going to make their comeback. Case in point: The Hollywood Reporter wrote in April 2018 about how C.K. “should stage his comeback.” To quote Moretz: “I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now.”
When it comes to Moretz’s involvement, she says the movement is more important than her lost work in the film.
When Variety interviewed her about this very subject in January 2018, she told them, “I could single-in and talk about my experience, but I think it’s more important to talk about the entire movement as a whole.”
Looking forward, Moretz is currently promoting her new film The Miseducation of Cameron Post, where she plays a young woman undergoing gay conversation therapy. She calls it “a queer movie made by queer people for queer people.”
Here’s to women like Moretz who aren’t afraid to speak their minds.
