Chloë Grace Moretz is almost unrecognizable at age 23

Chloë Grace Moretz shot to stardom — and stole America's heart — in her breakthrough role in the 2010 movie Kick-Ass. She started acting at age 6, per The Guardian, and proved she had real acting chops in several TV appearances, including Desperate Housewives and Dirty Sexy Money. She wowed audiences with roles in 500 Days of Summer and Diary of a Wimpy Kid, among others.

Hollywood embraced her sarcastic-but-cute characters, and she continued to be cast in many movies as a teenager. By the time she was 19, her résumé included more than 50 roles, The New York Times reported. Some of her most memorable include a two-season run on 30 Rock (2011-2013), the titular role in the Carrie remake (2013), Dark Places (2015), and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016).

Moretz decided to take a hiatus from acting in 2016. NPR revealed what she was thinking at the time: "A few years ago, I took a year and a half off to reconfigure where I was and really start this next iteration of my career, as the adult that I now am, on the right foot," she shared. "But to call yourself out, and to slam yourself against a wall a little bit, and be like, stop it and try this, is very terrifying, honestly, and you end up really questioning yourself. But in the end it's really empowering."

Moretz returned to the scene in 2018 — but you'll be surprised by how much she's grown up since!

Chloë Grace Moretz returns to Hollywood — and looks so mature

After an almost two-year break, Chloë Grace Moretz returned in the 2018 film, The Miseducation of Cameron Post. "I had taken a little break to figure out exactly what project I wanted to do next that felt like it really connected to me and said something about who I am," she told The New York Times. "And the first thing that ticked all those boxes was The Miseducation of Cameron Post." She also made headlines during her time away for dating Brooklyn Beckham.

Moretz has done a handful of other movies since The Miseducation of Cameron Post, including Greta (2018), Suspiria, (2018), and voicing Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family (2019).

The outspoken actress also starred in 2017's I Love You, Daddy opposite Louis C.K., but after sexual misconduct allegations came out against the comedian, the movie was delayed indefinitely. When asked by Times if the movie should be released, Moretz candidly replied, "I think it should just kind of go away, honestly. Of course, it's devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear. But at the same time, this [Me Too] movement is so powerful and so progressive that I'm just happy to... see the big change in the face of the industry, which I think is very, very real."

The 23-year-old's next project is the 2020 film, Tom and Jerry. And as she teased in her birthday Instagram post, it's "going to be a special year."

Chloë Grace Moretz is confident in her own skin

Although some fans might assume Chloë Grace Moretz's chic and mature vibe is carefully curated, it couldn't be further from the truth. "I love going on the red carpet and looking like a princess," she said about her ever-evolving fashion sense in an interview with Who What Wear. "I also love wearing a power suit and slicking my hair back. For me, it's like, who am I today?"

Moretz's confident and IDGAF attitude touches every area of her life, including her response to criticism that she shouldn't be so outspoken. "A broad spectrum of different people were like: 'Is this what she wants to be? Does she want to be the outspoken girl?'" she explained to The Guardian. "And it's like: 'Well, yeah. Respectfully, F that.'"

It sounds like the actor is wise beyond her years and we understand why she's a role model for many young women.

Who is Chloë Grace Moretz dating?

As we mentioned earlier, Chloë Grace Moretz once dated Brooklyn Beckham, and the two broke up in spring 2018. It's unclear if the 23-year-old is currently dating anyone, although she was linked to model Kate Harrison in December 2018. TMZ published photos of the pair seemingly kissing during a night out in Los Angeles, and the outlet reported they were living together. The pair were last spotted together publicly in March 2019.

Moretz, who played a young gay woman in The Miseducation of Cameron Post, told The Independent on the topic of sexuality, "We're all human, trying to be with the people that we fall in love with, and be the best person that we can be. But don't assume people's sexualities. And don't project your own issues onto them. Why don't we let people be who they wanna be?"

Dating rumors aside, we wish Moretz the best as she navigates the rest of her 20s.
