Chloe Grace Moretz Still Has Some S**t to Talk on Kim Kardashian

Turns out Chloe Grace Moretz is not ready to bury the hatchet in her opinions about Kim Kardashian. In case you’ve forgotten Kim’s now notorious nude selfie she posted earlier in the year and Moretz’s critique, let the 19-year-old rising star and Brooklyn Beckham babe, remind you with her June cover interview for Glamour mag. It’s the first time Moretz has elaborated on what it meant for her to speak on Kardashian’s message of body positivity. Moretz thinks:

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.

When you’re a celebrity, everything is done in voyeuristic light. Chloe might claim to be new to feminism, but let’s repeat it for the ones in that back, some women feel empowered by being naked, some people feel empowered by retaining modesty. What Moretz has really done here is fallen victim to more pressure to vie against other women and their ways of living. Kardashian’s body is her brand. She and her family have thoughtfully cultivated this brand for themselves and the effort to do so is not to be lost or left unappreciated. Moretz continues:

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.

Oh, but the second you tell a woman what she should or should not be doing with her body, it is shaming. Her opinion on this is totally irrelevant. When Moretz first spoke out, Kardashian clapped back with a very petty tweet (admittedly not the mother of two’s finest hour).

Let’s all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is.

To put this perspective, the original article covering Moretz’s Kardashian kommentary put her among the likes of Piers Morgan. Piers Morgan known prude and woman hater. Piers Morgan. Let that sink in. Good for you Chlo for doing good for yourself, but you don’t have to go at Kim Kardashian, a woman who is largely irrelevant to her field of well-respected actors, to inflate yourself. Not a good look, girl.
