Chloe Moretz in W October 2013: I Feel Most Confident When I'm In Front Of A Camera
While donning designer garbs from Dior and Calvin Klein for the Craig McDean-shot front page, the "Hugo" beauty opened up about her love for acting and even reveals why she loves filming.

On her first acting gig:
"I booked 'The Amityville Horror' when I was 6. I did about four or five auditions and had to cry at every single one. When you’re that young, it’s a huge feat to be able to cry, so I did the same crying scene over and over to prove that I could and that I wasn’t making myself crazy doing it."
"To be honest, I feel most confident when I am in front of a camera. I’ve learned to think of myself in the third person. When I watch my scenes, I’ll say, 'She could have done better.'"
On her brother's help with her career:
"[My brother] Trevor taught me from a young age how to get out of character. He taught me that all the crying and emotion are fake. When I found out about 'Kick-Ass,' I was 10, and I was obsessed with the part. 'Wanted' with Angelina Jolie, had just come out, and I was eager to do something cool like that, but not the kiddie version. I didn’t want to run around with little laser guns and stupid stuff. 'Kick-Ass' was not kiddie at all: My character was killing people from age 6. That would mess with your psyche."
On her preferred superpower:
"It’s pretty cliché, but I’d like to fly. I would not want to be invisible. I don’t want to see things that I don’t want to see. I’m a big fan of turning my head and not knowing."
