Chloe Grace Moretz says therapy has been beneficial to her work as an actress
Chloe Grace Moretz says therapy helps her acting career.
The 21-year-old actress is a firm believer in therapy and says it has been beneficial to her work as an actress.
She said: "I think mental health, it's important to me as a human, but especially I think as an actor, it really helps. But I think there should always be someone that you talk to, whether it's an actual therapist or not. I like an actual therapist because you gain a breadth of emotional vocabulary, and it gives you a way to deal with everyday struggles, and also to see that your problems aren't singular. When you see that your problems are honestly kind of general, it's cathartic. And you see that you are not that special, which I thought was really great. I'm like, 'Oh my god, I have all these issues it's only me!' She was like, 'It's not only you, everyone deals with these and they are actually very common, and it's OK and you are going to be fine.' That's the best."
Chloe also revealed that her last two movies have "reignited" her desire to act.
The actress stars in 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post', directed by Desiree Akhavan and Luca Guadagnino's 'Suspira' remake and Chloe says both movies have been hugely important to her.
She told The Hollywood Reporter: "Well, Luca is someone I've known for years. We've tried to work together since I was 15, but I was a little young for all of his female characters and the sexuality that comes with them. I had just finished Cameron Post right before I started filming this one, and I got both scripts at the same time. And these were the two scripts that I think reignited who I was as an actor."
