Chloe Grace Moretz Is Not Backing Down From Her Kim Kardashian Nude Selfie Comments

Chloe Grace Moretz is standing her ground.

Even after Kim Kardashian had clapped back at her — and questioned her relevance — after the Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising commented about the reality star’s now-infamous nude selfie, Moretz still thinks how she reacted in the whole so-called “scandal” was correct.

“All I’ll say is that I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways,” she tells Elle about her supposed feud with Kardashian. “And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind.”

She continues, “I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn’t be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things.”

After Kardashian “welcomed” Moretz to Twitter “since no one knows who she is,” the mom-of-two also threw some shade by bringing up Moretz’s nude Nylon cover and called it “cute.” According to Moretz, her magazine cover and Kardashian’s selfie are different things.

“I mean, I think that’s also a lot more based on artwork, so that’s a little bit of a different conversation,” she explains. “Like, if I’m talking to a photographer, I’m talking to a stylist, I’m talking to a makeup artist, we’re kind of creating and collaborating and making something that is artwork and is special and is different. Yeah, it’s representing myself, but it’s also not representing myself, because it’s a character piece.”

“So, I think that is a big difference. On social media, like on Instagram and stuff that I post, and the way that I view myself, and portray myself on there, that’s definitely a much more personalized take,” she adds. “I’m not collaborating with people to make that, it’s my own social media platform in which I’m–it’s not a character, it’s just me.”

Initially, Moretz wrote to Kardashian about the NSFW photo, “I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies.” She later denied claims that she was slut-shaming the 35-year-old, tweeting:
