Chloe Grace Moretz: My Brothers Were Bullied For Being Gay
Chloe Grace Moretz may be living out the ultimate high school revenge fantasy in her upcoming role as the good-girl-gone-evil in Carrie, but off-screen, she and her loved ones have been dealt some crushing blows at the hands of bullies without the satisfaction of scaring the crap out of them with telekinesis later.
Chloe, who graces the cover of Seventeen magazine’s October issue, revealed that two of her siblings were picked on mercilessly because of their sexual orientation, something she will never sit idly by and allow to happen.
“I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it,” says the 16-year-old star.
Of her approach to the dealing with haters, she says, "I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers."
Despite the pressures of her career and the inherent difficulties that come with being a teenager, Chloe says that she still prioritizes her family life.
“Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family," says Chloe. "My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it's life."
