Chloe Grace Moretz stopped trusting after parents' split

Chloe Grace Moretz stopped trusting people after her parents divorced.

The '5th Wave' actress was devastated when her father "just left" her mother when she was a child and she admits their separation had a huge impact on her.

She said: "It made me harder on myself. [It] was as heavy as you can get to dismantle a family, for sure.

"When you're betrayed by someone that is a bloodline, you start to beware trusting people and to protect yourself at all costs.

"For a long time, I did that too much. I wasn't letting people in."

The 18-year-old star also admitted that, when she was 16 and filming 'Carrie', she felt incredibly insecure.

She told America's Marie Claire magazine: "I felt fat; I felt not pretty.

"I felt like I didn't really know who I was. I was so confused; I was scared. I had bad acne. I felt incredibly insecure."

However, these days Chloe is much more confident in herself.

She added: "I'm so free now. I don't know what happened, but when I turned 17, this huge weight was lifted off my shoulders.

"I don't worry about what people say about me. I know who I am, who I want to be, what I want to portray myself as, what I want people to think of me."

The teenage starlet insists she's not interested in a relationship "for a while" and has no desire to date anyone older than she is.

She said: "I don't want to date older people, because I'm 18 and older people are more serious.

"Then I kind of realised, I'll go on dates, why not? And that's kind of how I am right now."
