It is what it is! Chloë Grace Moretz hasn’t lost any sleep over her past Twitter feud with Kim Kardashian. The Little Mermaid actress opened up about the situation in a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
As previously reported, Moretz, 19, slammed Kardashian, 35, for posting a nude photo of herself on social media in March. “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” Moretz tweeted to Kardashian at the time. The Selfish author responded by joking that no one knows who Moretz is.
“I realized if I stop talking about the negativity then it can’t thrive. And that’s something I came to very, very recently,” Moretz told THR. “I think I gave my attention to people that didn’t deserve my attention. So in some ways, I think I regret giving them the attention, [though] I don’t regret what I said.”
Moretz came to that realization, in fact, because of Hillary Clinton. The Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising star recently spoke at the Democratic National Convention in support of the presidential nominee, 68.
“But also I realized that being the most opinionated and loud person in the room is not always the most impactful. I learned that from Hillary,” Moretz told THR. “‘It’s great to be feisty.’ Those were her exact words. But sometimes the smartest way to get into the psyche of people is to be the quietest person in the room. Let everyone else bicker and throw their words around and then you come in with the quiet voice and that will be the most impactful.”
This isn’t the first time Moretz has spoken about the incident with Kardashian. Back in May, she explained what moved her to respond to the reality star’s selfie in the first place.
“I had just gotten off a plane from South Korea, I was incredibly jet-lagged and I couldn’t take one more thing. I saw that photo, and I had to say something,” she told Glamour. “That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre. It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. … I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites and male attention. … I wasn’t slut-shaming. It’s not about body shaming.”
