Chloe Grace Moretz: Career before parties

Chloe Grace Moretz: Career before parties

Chloe Grace Moretz would never "throw away" her career by partying.

The 19-year-old actress - who shot to fame after appearing in 'Kick-Ass' at the age of 12 - insists neither she nor her family would "accept" her going off the rails because she has worked too hard to ruin her reputation with wild behaviour.

Asked how she stays grounded, she said: "My family have and always will remain my greatest influence and if I ever went down that path, they wouldn't accept it and I wouldn't accept it.

"Plus I've worked too hard and I'm coming into this exciting new phase in my career where the roles are developing and diversifying and I'm getting wonderful chances.

"Why would I throw that away to party or drink or whatever? It would be so foolish and stupid. I'm excited where life is going."

Chloe - who is in a relationship with Brooklyn Beckham - was homeschooled from the age of eight, and though she'd like to go to college one day, she admits it is tough to make the decision to put her career on hold in order to do so, especially when she's already having "the best education" through her work and directors.

She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: "College, yes, I do want to go but when, I don't know because I feel I've got this momentum right now.

"I want to watch where that goes. It might feel abrupt to just walk away from acting for a couple of years and I wouldn't want to balance the two.

"And I'm experiencing the best education right now, in its rarest form. I can follow around Tim Burton and Martin Scorsese. I can shadow them and learn practical first-hand."
