The very moment Chloë Grace Moretz appeared onscreen as Isabelle in the moving 2011 fantasy adventure film Hugo, I was awestruck at the perfect face of this young beauty! I knew I’d seen this pretty girl in films before – I never forget a face – but I simply could not place this stunning jewel; I had no idea what other movies I’d seen her in. Perhaps one reason I couldn’t place Chloë is her tricky age; when I saw her before, she was a mere girl – and now she is well on her way to becoming a woman: an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous woman, I must say!

The fact that the film Hugo was so moving and touching only added to the appeal of the actors appearing in the movie – especially Chloë Grace Moretz and Asa Butterfield.
I looked up Hugo on IMDb – my favorite resource for movies and TV shows – and learned that this amazing girl is Chloë Grace Moretz from Atlanta, GA. After looking at her filmography, I realized I’d seen her recently as the young vampire in Let Me In, the unusually good American remake of modern Swedish vampire horror classic Let the Right One In. Also, only a few weeks ago I had also seen her – as just a little girl – in the comedy Kick Ass. Even then, I thought, Wow – that is one cute girl!
Plot summary of Let Me In: 12 year-old Owen is bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. A lonely young man, Owen spends his days imagining revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on his apartment complex neighbors. Owen’s only friend is his new neighbor Abby (Chloë Grace Moretz), an odd young girl – strangely mature for her apparent age – who lives next door with her quiet father. A seemingly troubled tweenish girl, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter cold and snow. Recognizing Abby as a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, they have formed a unique bond. When a string of local murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and Abby is left to fend for herself. Her increasingly bizarre behavior, including her memorable reaction at the mere glimpse of blood, leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding something: quite true, and fully revealed in due course!
I wasn’t going to mention this, but I will… Some prudes and PC adherents may believe it is sick, twisted, perverted, etc. for an older male to comment on the beauty of a 14 year-old girl. In general, such assuming, judgmental views are truly sad and pathetic – in most cases, probably worse than what they are going on about in the first place.
If I were from 13 to 16 years of age – and if Chloe Moretz existed within my ken (went to my school, lived in my neighborhood, or went to my church) – I would want to get to know her better! Chloe’s face comes about as close to perfectly beautiful as any I can presently recall. I hope she turns out to be a nice and kind person rather than a conceited one; you just know this girl hears nonstop comments about how beautiful she is.
I look forward to seeing Chloë Moretz in the following films, all in some level of production or pre-production:
- Kick Ass 2
- The Rut
- Emily the Strange
- Old St. Louis: To feature Vince Vaughn as a traveling toy salesman reconnecting with his daughter, played by Chloe Moretz
It’s too bad that scheduling conflicts have apparently prevented Ms. Moretz from accepting a juicy role in a remake of Paper Moon, the 1973 classic wherein a con man finds himself saddled with a young girl who may or may not be his daughter, and the two forge an unlikely partnership during the Great Depression.
The popularity of Chloë Grace Moretz – as a subject of articles, as a film star, as a goal for photographers and paparazzi, as the focus of blog posts like this one, and so on – is absolutely EXPLODING these days. Pretty, young Chloe is going viral! On Google, the results of Chloë Moretz-related searches seem to be growing with each passing hour. This writer – an SEO professional and movie fan – was amazed at the difference in today’s Chloe Moretz search results compared to the Chloe Moretz search results from only a few days before. This girl is a major IT, and this will bring about both good and bad things for this young star. Hang in there, Chloe!
Notes from above
 Despite this writer’s disgust with what PC (political correctness) has evolved to these days, inappropriate sexual comments concerning youngsters certainly cannot be condoned or defended.
