Chloë Grace Moretz sits with her legs folded like a pretzel in the master bedroom of the Gene Autry Residence at Parker Palm Springs. Sipping an iced coffee, black, she pages through the day’s edition of The New York Times as the glam team goes to work.

“I can’t start my day without it,” the Georgia native says. Her political interests run deep: Moretz stumped for Hillary Clinton and in 2016 became the youngest speaker ever to address the Democratic National Convention.

At 21, she has 27 awards, 41 additional nominations, and 50 motion pictures under her belt, including three in post-production at press time. Her latest to hit theaters, The Miseducation of Cameron Post (a Sundance grand jury prizewinner that saw wide release in August), takes a raw look at the practice of gay conversion therapy.

Set in the 1990s, the adaptation of Emily Danforth’s eponymous 2012 novel chronicles the experience of Moretz’s character at a treatment center that aims to pray the gay away. “This is a prolific modern issue,” Moretz says, noting its use is not specific to any one religion, socioeconomic class, or race. “It is only illegal for minors in 14 states; 77,000 kids in the next five years will be subjected to conversion therapy.”

Miseducation, directed by Desiree Akhavan, was a passion piece for Moretz. “Having LGBT people in my family, being an advocate has always been a very large part of my identity,” she says. “This movie is by queer people — for the community by the community — and that’s really special. I’ve never felt more proud of a project.”

Moretz appears in Luca Guadagnino’s Venice Film Festival–nominated Suspiria, which opens in U.S. theaters next month. She also stars in the forthcoming animation Red Shoes & the 7 Dwarfs, Neil Jordan’s thriller The Widow, and a new animated version of The Addams Family (opening October 2019) alongside the voices of Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Nick Kroll, and Allison Janney.

After her Palm Springs Life cover shoot (September 2018), Moretz took time to discuss her films, her mentors, and … her potential run for Congress.

What’s your ideal Palm Springs weekend?

For years, we’ve been going out to Palm Springs as a family. We usually go out there when it’s really, really hot. It’s 110 in the daytime and you just sit by the pool and sweat all day.

The snowbirds are going to think you’re nuts. Why come when it’s hot?

It’s just kind of fun. You get the resorts to yourself — at a place like the Parker, which is usually kind of crazy, [you’re there] without everyone in the way.

That downtime is necessary when you have such a loaded schedule. The Miseducation of Cameron Post dropped Aug. 3. Give us a quick rundown of the plot.

It’s a film about a young woman named Cameron Post. She gets caught making out with her best friend in the back of her boyfriend’s car, and her aunt sends her away to conversion-therapy camp. Basically, it’s focused on the interpersonal relationships of meeting other gay kids like herself for the very first time and the awkward, comedic moments that are found within some of the darkest moments of life.

It was a research-intensive project. What was the production process like?

The community really partnered around us. Particularly, while in pre-production, we talked to a lot of survivors of conversion therapy because we wanted it to be as true to their story as we could possibly make it. The thing we really gleaned from the conversations was the diversity of the faces of conversion therapy. There wasn’t one religion. There wasn’t one socioeconomic space. It wasn’t one race.

Can you share a narrative that stood out?

A story that really hit us was from a 16-year-old boy whose father was an immigrant — he came to America and had to work very, very hard to get to the place where he was. In his eyes, he thought he was giving his son more opportunities by “getting the gay out of him.”

Acting out such emotionally charged scenes must be heavy. Of all the film sets you’ve worked on, which has been most fun?

Dark Shadows, because Tim Burton really let me do whatever I wanted — there was no, “No.” It was just, “Go ahead! Do 10 times more than you even imagine doing.” He was off the wall, wild gnarly, a really great guy.

What’s your dream gig? If you could take on any role in film or television, past or present, what would it be?

I would love to do a long-form version of Gone With the Wind.

Let’s talk about Neil Jordan’s The Widow, slated for release in 2019.

It’s a wonderful film about a young woman who loses her mother and has this hole in her heart that she’s trying to fill. She meets a woman who fills that gap. From there, it takes some really crazy twists and turns, and you’re stuck on the edge of your seat wondering what’s gonna happen next.

Favorite moment on Jordan’s set?

Working with Isabelle Huppert. Isabel and Julie [Julianne Moore] are probably my two biggest mentors. I could literally call either of them in 20 minutes and they would give me the most honest answers to whatever I was asking. That’s such a blessing, and it’s really rare to find people like that in this industry — especially women at that level.

Best advice from one of your mentors?

It was really Julianne Moore, when I was 14 in Carrie, who taught me what it meant to have your own voice. She taught me if you see something, say something. If someone was being talked down to on set, it’s your right as the lead to say, “You don’t do that on my set.” She really taught me, in a multitude of ways, how to be an upstanding actor, how to be a professional and have a good time, how to make your moments in a very dark scene incredible. I have never had more fun than with her, and we were doing some of the darkest material I had ever done. I chalk up a lot of who I am today to her.

Another prominent figure in your life: Hillary Clinton.

I met Hillary when I was about 17. I had always been a fan of her as a speaker, as a person, and as an inspiration to young women, a woman who’s blazing a trail for all of us. I was really blessed that she asked me to speak at the DNC. I had already been campaigning for her pretty hard. I was in Nevada. I went to Michigan. I went to colleges and talked to teens and young 20-year-olds about the importance of getting the vote out. The DNC was the craziest experience ever.

You’ve been vocal about hot-button issues, like homophobia, from a young age. Where did that political interest take root?

I come from having two gay brothers. I was, without even questioning it, an advocate for the LGBTQ community. I was inherently up on their rights and the fact that, when I was younger, they couldn’t get married if they wanted to. On top of that, I grew up with a single parent. My mom was a really strong person and pushed that into me. She, along with my brothers, taught me to love and respect self-education — reading and keeping yourself abreast on the issues that you want to care about. When Obama won, I was fairly young, but I remember seeing all of my family watching the debate and finding out at age 8 or 9 what democracy was and what our system was.

Should we expect to see the name “Chloë Grace Moretz” pop up on a future ballot?

[Laughs] Yeah, yeah, I know. I thought about, when I’m older, potentially being part of Congress or the Senate and doing something like that. In 2020 I’m already looking at candidates, from Gillibrand to Booker to Sanders to Elizabeth Warren. I’m listening and I’m watching. My generation, hopefully, will finally put their money where their mouths are and get out there and vote and actually trailblaze, as opposed to sitting back like, “I’m unhappy, but I’m not gonna do anything about it.”

What’s your message to the next wave of voters?

My biggest thing is: Whatever you’re voting for, state legislature [or] a president, educate yourself — and, also, just have an opinion. Figure out what your opinion is and have a stance and listen and educate yourself.

And what’s your life motto?

Never lose sight of what your true passion is, and don’t get caught up in the good or the bad. Stick to yourself. If you go to bed at night and your conscience is clear and your heart is open, that’s the only thing you can really hope for in this world.

Chloë Grace Moretz – the young actress you’ve seen in Kick-Ass and its sequel, the Carrie remake, and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, among other big budget flicks – takes on the title role here; a queer teen caught having sex with her girlfriend at her school prom by the boyfriend she attended it with, only to then be carted off to God’s Promise, a conversion therapy camp in Montana. When it first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, it was met with critical praise. So much so that it walked off with the Grand Jury Prize for US Drama – widely regarded as the festival’s highest honour.

“I had basically taken a little bit of a break from acting for a second to figure out where I wanted to be in my career, the content I wanted to put out, and what was so important to me,” Chloë tells us when we ask at what point when reading the script did she know that she needed to be a part of this project. “The first movie that really ticked all the boxes for me and lit a fire under me was Cameron Post. It was really that that made me want to jump into this project and be a part of it – and it was for a multitude of reasons.” The main one, she says, was because she was completely unaware of how much an issue conversion therapy was – and continues to be – in America.

The statistics are heartbreaking: there are currently 700,000 people in America affected by conversion therapy, while it’s estimated a further 77,000 young people will be subjected to the unethical practice in the next five years. There is absolutely no reliable evidence that this pseudoscientific method is effective. In fact, pretty much all respectable scientific and medical experts consider attempting to change someone’s sexuality from bisexual or homosexual to heterosexual through psychological or spiritual means to be seriously harmful. Yet conversion therapy has so far only been banned in 14 states in the US, and that is just when it comes to minors. In the UK, the government is only just looking into banning the practice after years of campaigning by LGBTQ activists.

“It’s an issue that never went away,” Chloë says. “The movie is set in 1993, so in a way you could look at it and think it’s different now, but actually it’s not. If anything, it’s louder, it’s more talked about, and it’s more easily accessible. There are websites now that will help you find any therapist in a 10-mile radius of your home that you can take your kid to tomorrow. So it’s become very readily available and that really shocked me.”

What is even more shocking, Chloë adds, is just how far conversion therapy has its grip. “It’s in every religion, it’s in every socio-economic space, it’s in every race, it’s an incredibly widespread issue.” And this is where the power of art comes in. When Chloë says that this is the one movie of hers that she needs people to see, it’s because it could help mobilise real social change when it comes to the conversation around conversion therapy. “Hopefully, from people becoming educated it’ll help them to become advocates to overturn it and make it illegal in their country and their city.”

When Chloë says that, it’s not even directed at just the LGBTQ community, but people outside of the rainbow who could be completely unaware that these very real issues still persist in society. And The Miseducation of Cameron Post’s secret weapon? A great big emotional punch that would be difficult for anyone to resist connecting with.

“What’s wonderful about this movie is that it doesn’t feel like you’re taking a medicine when you’re watching it – it’s incredibly educational and you find out a lot of information, but it’s told through very interpersonal relationships that are easily accessed by those that even aren’t in the community,” Chloë says, before adding: “To highlight something else, I would say what’s important about this movie is that it’s a queer movie told by queer people. Our director [Desiree Akhavan] is bisexual and everyone in the movie is on the spectrum, and it’s told by the community for the community. It’s through our lens. That is the most important thing we can push through – that we’re not just taking advantage of the story.”

For Chloë, that meant delving deep into research for the role and speaking with conversion therapy victims. She met many survivors who were just two to three years from their horrific experience, but what left her astonished was that her idea of what type of person might be subjected to this practice was completely wrong. “I was really surprised by the diversity of conversion therapy,” she recalls. “In my mind when I hear conversion therapy, the first thing I thought was Christianity and obviously, highly, strictly religious families. But then you start talking to these survivors and it’s actually a lot more insidious. It crosses socio-economic and racial boundaries. For instance, one man’s story is that his father put him in conversion therapy because his father was an immigrant from another country. He worked very, very hard to gain the wealth and respect that he now has in this country, so in his eyes, he thought he was giving his kid more opportunities in the world by getting the gay out of him. I’d never thought of that. It was a really shocking entry point into conversion therapy that I hadn’t thought of.”

The diversity of conversion therapy is implemented into the movie through both Forest Goodluck’s character Adam Red Eagle, who comes from a Native American background, and Sasha Lane’s brilliantly named character Jane Fonda, who grew up in a commune. “There is no single face of conversion therapy, as there’s no single face of gay people – it’s as diverse as it can come,” Chloë adds.

What it highlights is just how widespread homophobia is throughout different cultural, social, and economic backgrounds, and how pervasive it remains in society. “There’s a shocking amount of casual homophobia,” Chloë agrees. “It’s homophobia that comes in the form of, ‘It’s okay if it’s over there, but don’t bring it into my home.’ It’s this latent, insidious form of homophobia which now, in America in particular with this administration we’re living under, you see people who maybe had these ideas of homophobic rhetoric, but now they feel like they have a platform to be able to look at you and go, ‘You’re gay, I don’t want you near me, near my family, or certainly bringing me food or working with me.’ It’s jarring, it’s scary.”

Ah, there it is. It didn’t take long into this conversation for the T word to pop up: Trump. Chloë explains that production on The Miseducation of Cameron Post actually started while Barack Obama was still in the White House. Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton were battling in the 2016 Presidential Election throughout the first half of filming, but when that fateful night in November happened, it all changed. “We all went to bed one night thinking Hillary Clinton was going to be our president the next day, and we woke up finding that it’s now President-Elect Trump,” Chloë remembers. “In that moment, this movie became one of the most impactful things we could be doing, and it lit a new fire under us. It was always important to us to make the movie, but now it became important for America to see the movie.”

This added weight of importance made The Miseducation of Cameron Post an even more vital and much-needed piece of activism. “This is what art should be,” Chloë says. “In the current state of America, if you don’t have a message that you’re pushing out, if it’s not some sort of activism, then why are you doing it? I want this movie to be a platform. I want this movie to start a conversation and to help lobby against conversion therapy in America. I’m actually flying to DC to do a screening and to have an open conversation with a couple of politicians, and to talk about lobbying against gay conversion therapy in America.”

We don’t need to remind you that the current Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, has a terrible record when it comes to supporting LGBTQ rights. When he was running for Congress back in 2000, he publically said that resources should be given to “institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behaviour.” It was widely interpreted as support for conversion therapy. He has since promoted anti-LGBTQ legislation in the name of his religious faith.

The use of religion as ammunition to enforce bigoted, conservative views plays a large part in The Miseducation of Cameron Post. As we mentioned, Cameron is sent to God’s Promise; a place where ‘psychologists’ use religion to make these kids feel unnatural for being gay. Having grown up in Georgia, which is a very conservative state, Chloë has experienced bigotry based purely on religious beliefs firsthand. “The pushback we saw towards our family after my brothers came out was jarring for sure,” she says. “There’s a lot of people from our small town that treated us differently, and treated my brothers differently. The way I saw them bullied and ostracised was shocking. What made me most sad was that people were weaponising something that isn’t inherently a negative thing.”

“Religion isn’t inherently negative,” Chloë continues. “It’s the misinterpretation of it and the weaponisation of it that becomes abusive. There’s a lot of really scary rhetoric in the interpretation of the bible – the way people can really manipulate it. That breaks my heart because you can do that with any religion, you can do it as an atheist, you can be an extremist in any form. It’s really heartbreaking to see people use something that could potentially be enlightening, but turning it into abuse like that.”

After her brothers came out, Chloë’s advocacy for LGBTQ people was solidified and she continues to support the community in any way she can. “It was a no-brainer for me,” she smiles. “The healthiest relationship that I’ve ever seen and grew up with was not that of my parents, it was that of my brother and his boyfriend who have been together – still to this day – for 11 years. That has been my most healthy parental relationship that I’ve ever seen. It gave me faith and hope that you can find someone to be with for a long period of time who you truly love. But for me, it’s interesting that it wasn’t your typical nuclear family unit – it’s my gay brother and his boyfriend.”

This experience had a profound effect on her world view, ultimately turning her into one of the community’s most outspoken allies. “I was really blessed because I grew up so open to it,” Chloë says. “I grew up fighting on their behalf because it broke my heart to see that yes, they can stand up for themselves, but people wouldn’t listen. So I took it upon myself with their blessing to go out there and talk about it, and to tell people, ‘Hey, being gay is not a big deal at all. But be proud and be out there and raise the flag high. Be a part of the community, and be for the community.’ So it was never a question to me whether or not I was ever going to be an advocate, and what that meant to my heart and how it shaped me.”

But when it comes to being a good ally to the LGBTQ community there are rules – rules that Chloë lives by. “First and foremost, don’t take stories,” she says. “Let other people’s stories stand for themselves. Many people try to make these stories about themselves, and it’s like, you’re not a saviour. As an advocate, you’re not a saviour, you’re in no way shape or form saving anyone, but you just need to open your ears and listen. You are a sounding board. You are a microphone. You’re someone that can amplify the voice of others. That’s what’s important. Don’t take the story and then be like, ‘It’s as important to me because I’m doing this’. It’s like, ‘No, you’re just setting the stage. That’s it. You’re just giving people a platform to hopefully be able to shout it even louder and take it to reaches that they wouldn’t have otherwise had.’”

So when Chloë Grace Moretz reiterates for a second time during this conversation that “out of all the movies that I’ve done in my career – which is fair amount at this stage as I’ve done sixty-something in 15 years – I’d say this is the movie I’m most proud of,” we believe her unconditionally. “I will back this movie until the very end,” she adds. “I hope it opens your heart. I hope it gives you a new perspective of something – even if you knew about the community or conversion therapy. I hope it gives you a new connection to it. And I hope that it gets seen – that it opens eyes and educates people.” Amen to that.

Chloë Grace Moretz has been set as the lead of The Miseducation of Cameron Post, an indie based on Emily Danforth’s hot-button 2012 coming-of-age novel about a young girl who is forced into a gay conversion therapy center. Desiree Akhavan, who wrote, directed and starred in the Sundance pic Appropriate Behavior, has come aboard to direct. She also adapted the screenplay with Cecilia Frugiuele.

American Honey star Sasha Lane also stars alongside Moretz, and John Gallagher Jr., Forrest Goodluck and Jennifer Ehle co-star. Beachside and Parkville Pictures are producing the indie, with Beachside fully financing. UTA is repping domestic rights.

Danforth’s novel centered on Cameron Post (Moretz), a 12-year-old Montana girl who is sent to live with her ultra-conservative aunt after her parents die in a crash. She develops a relationship with her best friend, who happens to be the prom queen, and is sent to a “de-gaying” camp that offers conversion therapy.

Michael B. Clark, Alex Turtletaub and Jonathan Montepare are producing alongside Frugiuele. Olivier Kaempfer and Akhavan are executive producers.

The forthcoming remake of Suspiria that original director Dario Argento just can’t understand is moving forward with director Luca Guadagnino (A Bigger Splash, I Am Love), and now Chloe Grace Moretz has joined the cast alongside Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Mia Goth.

Interestingly, this marks the third horror remake for Moretz in six years and the fifth in her career overall, if you count her supporting turns in 2008’s The Eye starring Jessica Alba and the 2005 Platinum Dunes remake of The Amityville Horror starring Ryan Reynolds as a totally jacked suburban dad. Did I mention she’s only 19 years old? Feel free to indulge in a moment of silence for your never-realized dreams of childhood stardom.

Back in May, Guadagnino told me that the remake would be his attempt to recreate the impression he had of the film when he first saw it as an adolescent, while also making it “extremely, extremely scary,” which sounds like a good goal! Intriguingly, he also suggested that the film — which will be set in Berlin in 1977, also the year of the original movie’s release — will hold a subtle allusion to the generational conflict that ensued in Germany 30 years after the Holocaust:

It’s a movie about a moment in time [in Germany] in which [there was] a great divide between those who wanted to forget the past and those who were demanding the older generation to confront the past,” he told me at the time. “So it’s important. It’s about guilt. It’s a movie about guilt.

Argento may not “get” the idea behind the remake, but personally I trust Guadagnino — a very talented filmmaker in his own right — to make an interesting version of this story at the very least. For the record, there’s no clarification yet on which character Moretz will be playing.

Released in 1977, Suspiria was praised for its bold, surreal imagery and dreamlike tone and established Argento as a master of the horror genre. The film centers on an American ballet student (Jessica Harper) who comes to the horrifying realization that her new school in Munich is controlled by a coven of witches. Last October, the film came in at No. 13 on HitFix’s Ultimate Horror Poll, which surveyed over 100 filmmakers, actors and experts in the horror genre to come up with a definitive list of the 100 greatest horror movies of all time.

Chloë Grace Moretz has “pulled the plug” on all of her movies, the 19-year-old actress told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week.

Chloë had previously been slated to star in the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. That said, we’re not sure what this means for the fate of the movie, or who will take Chloë’s place. (It’s still listed on Chloë’s IMDB page, but as the movie is only announced and not yet in production, things can change. Any other not-yet-released movies listed for Chloë are in post-production.)

Chloë told The Hollywood Reporter that she had begun to take on so many projects that she started to lose sight of why she went into acting in the first place. “I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again,” Chloë explained. “I’m realizing that I can slow down.

However, Chloë isn’t completely disappearing from Hollywood. She told THR that she’s turning her focus to producing, and will be working on a couple of television shows.

We’re glad to see that Chloë is placing a priority on her personal growth and emotional health. She claimed her first role at age 7 and she’s been in over 50 films. We all need to take breaks from time to time, and even celebrities sometimes need a vacation from the spotlight.
