The update to the horror classic Carrie hits theaters today, and, according to ABC News, 16-year-old star Chloe Grace Moretz was (at first) intimidated by the title role.
You may know Chloe from films like Kick-Ass, Hugo, and 500 Days of Summer, but now she’s covered in pigs blood as she helps to breathe new life into one of Stephen King’s most famous stories for a whole new generation.
And in order to make Carrie White truly come to life, Chloe stayed in character the whole time she was on set.
“It was the first movie I ever did in which I wanted to try method [acting]," Chloe explained. "You know, trying to really breathe and live in her because she is such a dark character you can't just cut and be like hee-hawing around.”
Judging by her previous performances, we don’t doubt that Chloe nailed it, but she refuses to let the pressure of following Sissy Spacek’s Oscar nominated performance in the original film get to her.
“If I think of that, it's going to kill me,” she said, “and I'm never going to be able to achieve what I want to achieve as an actor.”
And the best part of Chloe’s role in Carrie? The fact that she’s not yet old enough to see an R-rated film in theaters.
“I’m sure my mom will buy me a ticket,” she joked.
