Chloe Grace Mortez Says She’ll Never Forgive Her Father For Leaving
“The things that he did are unforgivable…”
Chloe Grace Moretz loves to brag about her amazing family, mother Teri Moretz and brothers Trevor, Ethan, Brandon, and Colin. But one person you won’t ever hear her brag about is her father, who abandoned her and her family when the actress was just 12 years old. In the latest issue of Glamour, Moretz opens up about his betrayal affected her and her family after he left her mother to raise five children as a single mother.
“I was 12. It was a pretty bad experience,” Moretz, now 19, admitted. “It could have rocked our family and messed us up, but it actually made us a lot tighter. My brothers bumped up into the roles of fathers and kept me in a bubble where I could live in a world that wasn’t jaded and ruined.”
Moretz revealed that even all these years later, she’s still not ready to forgive her father. “I don’t think I will truly find a way to forgive,” she said. “The things that he did are unforgivable … My forgiveness is that I’m living my life.”
Because of what she went through at such a young age, the actress admitted to having trouble trusting people, especially in the business, “In my business in general, it’s hard to trust people. And it definitely affected me at a young age in terms of accepting people into my life on a personal level.” Luckily Moretz has found a way to make sure it doesn’t affect her personal life, including her relationship with Brooklyn Beckham, too much. “But I’ve overcome that in the past few years — dealing with relationships, dealing with guys. You don’t realize why you’re acting a certain way, and then you start to piece it together, and you realize you’ve got a slight case of PTSD.”
