Don't Assume Chloë Grace Moretz's Sexuality: 'Fluidity is the Future'

"If you talk to a 12 or 13-year-old, they don’t speak about gender as this label they were born as."

The Miseducation of Cameron Poststar Chloë Grace Moretz doesn't want you to assume her, or anyone else's, sexuality.

In an interview with Attitude Magazine during the London premiere of her conversation therapy film, the star spoke on non-LGBT actors playing LGBT roles and questioned the reporter's assumption of how actors privately identify.

"Just don’t assume, do you know what I mean? I think what’s important about this film is there’s a line in there where [Cameron] says, 'I don’t see myself as a homosexual, I don’t see myself as anything.' I think that’s the future we’re moving in to. If you talk to a 12 or 13-year-old, they don’t speak about gender as this label they were born as. They talk about fluidity, they talk about finding themselves for who they are. I think that’s important not to assume, any actor, any person, who they are, what they are, trying to label them or get them to tell you what you want to hear."

Miseducation director Desiree Akhavan echoed the sentiment, "In terms of actors in my own pursuit of casting this film, everyone was a teenager and it’s not my place to ask their sexuality. Nor did I want to." She went on, "I feel like people make a lot of assumptions about Chloë’s sexuality, That bothers me on a personal level. They should not make assumptions. It is not their place to look at a young woman who’s grown up on camera and say, 'Give me a little bit more information about your sexuality. I’d like to take more than I’ve already had having watched you grow since [the age of] five.'"
