Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter at the Deauville American Film Festival last week, Moretz explained her crazy work schedule finally gave her a “come to Jesus” moment and made her realize she was losing sight of why she became an actress.
She said that while she’s grateful for the fans watching her movies, “I pulled the plug on all my movies because I want to reassess who I am and find myself within my roles again. I’m realizing that I can slow down.”
The 19-year-old already has 55 film credits under her belt, so maybe a little time out is warranted.
The actress recently wrapped the crime drama November Criminals and thriller Brain on Fire, in which Moretz portrays Susannah Cahalan, an American journalist and author who documented her hospitalization with a rare auto-immune disease.
