Chloe Moretz Takes Aim at Jim Carrey’s Stance on ‘Kick-Ass 2′ Violence
Jim Carrey plays a big role in Kick-Ass 2 as Colonel Stars and Stripes, but the actor isn’t taking part in the film’s promotional release — not intentionally, at least.
In June, Carrey distanced himself from Kick-Ass 2 due to the film’s level of violence, citing the school shootings in Sandy Hook, Connecticut, as the reason for his change of heart. Others involved with the film don’t see things Carrey’s way — like Chloe Moretz, for instance, who spoke with The Sun about her thoughts on how the Kick-Ass series handles violence.
“It’s a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn’t go to see Pocahontas because you are going to think you are a Disney princess,” she said. “If you are that easily swayed, you might see The Silence of the Lambs and think you are a serial killer. It’s a movie and it’s fake, and I’ve known that since I was a kid.”
“I don’t want to run around trying to kill people and cuss,” she added. “If anything, these movies teach you what not to do.”
Even if she disagrees with Carrey, Moretz said she respects the actor’s choice not to support Kick-Ass 2 any longer: “Each to their own.”
