Chloe, who kills it as NYLON’s Dec/Jan 2016 cover girl, doesn’t have anything against a good friendship or two. She just doesn’t like what it means. So much that “#squadgoals” may cause her to roll her eyes (according to the magazine).
“I agree with having a good core group of friends, but the issue I have with squads is it creates exclusivity,” according to the 18-year-old actress.
“I was never included in those things when I was a kid. I was the weird one that chose to do movies, so now I go out of my way to be nice to people and make them feel included.”
Got that, Taylor Swift?
Here are some other highlights from Chloe’s cover story:
On why her upcoming film Neighbors 2 is a feminist movie.
“If any of the women ever feel there’s something inappropriate, we speak up, and they will never push the boundaries with us—they’ve been really respectful.
On what feminism means to her.
“I think feminism is about strong women being who they want to be and fighting for equality on all accounts. It’s not about men being demolished to bring women higher up in the world. I think that’s incredibly misconstrued.”
On how her brothers Trevor and Colin coming out inspired her.
“People would call them the F-word, and I would get so angry. It was really hard to see my brothers be hated on or bullied, so I stood up for them. We shouldn’t be using these terms to create more labels and segregate us further apart than we already are. At a young age, I was motivated to fight for gay rights, women’s rights, minority rights—all human rights.”
