Chloe Moretz attended the 2010 Children’s BAFTA Awards in London on Sunday November 28th. The young actress wore the Chanel dress that Jessica Alba was featured in for one of her two covers on Elle magazine for December 2010. (See all the photos below.)
Moretz has been cast in the film Hick (based on the novel from Andrea Portes) and today she gained a costar: Kirsten Dunst. The story is about 13 year old abandoned by her folks who makes her way to Las Vegas and is taken in by Dunst’s con-artist Glenda.
Moretz’s character Luli is raped in the book (and it is likely to happen in the film as well.) How graphic it will be on screen remains to be seen and this is not new for a young girl to portray a victim of rape. In 2007 Dakota Fanning’s parents and filmmakers received sharp criticism for allowing her to take on Hounddog, where Fanning’s on screen character was also victim of a sexual assault.
Fanning appears well-adjusted and downright happy today which makes it seem as though if enough care is taken, the actress can be young and not leave the film damaged but is it worth the risk? Many actor regardless of their age will say how a character – especially an emotionally scarred one – will live with them long after the movie shoot; the psychic “dust” still clings to them.
So what do you think? Is this a disturbing trend – not just this but the number of assassins and killers that teenage girls are being cast as? Is it ok as long as the actress is well-taken care of emotionally? Will you see this movie?
