Chloe Grace Moretz recently finished The Miseducation Of Cameron Post, a film that, so far, has received mostly good reviews. However, one film she hopes isn’t released in the coming months, or even at all, is Louis CK’s I Love You, Daddy.
As you may know, the actress portrayed the daughter of Louis’ character in the movie, which he wrote and directed. The movie generated controversy for Moretz’ character, 17, who falls in love with a 68-year-old filmmaker, played by John Malkovich.
It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017, and The Orchard later acquired the rights for distribution.
Initially, they had planned to release it in theatres on the 17th of November, 2017, but ultimately had to eliminate it on the 10th of November after CK admitted to sexually harassing women, inadvertently confirming years of Hollywood rumors.
During a conversation with reporters from the Los Angeles Times at the time of the scandal, Moretz said that she wouldn’t promote the movie because of the allegations against Louis.
Now, the young actress believes the movie should never see the light of day due to the charges against him. In December, reports stated that CK might buy the rights to the film and attempt to distribute it himself.
According to the 21-year-old, she doesn’t “think it’s time for them to have a voice right now,” referring to men accused of sexual misconduct.
Moretz said that it was traumatic to have the film pulled off the shelves in the way that it was, but the truth is that “this movement is so powerful and so progressive,” that she’s happy to see the changing face of the entertainment business, which Chloe feels is “very real.”
Ever since Chloe garnered critical acclaim for her role in the movie, Kicka*s, she has gone on to star in more serious roles. The next film she’ll appear in is Suspira, by Luca Guadagnino.
