I know I’ve given Chloe Moretz a hard time before for saying stupid shit, but sometimes I have to remember that teenagers say stupid shit all the time and it doesn’t mean they’re terrible people. In fact, the Carrie actress seems to have her head screwed on pretty straight and in a new interview for her Seventeen cover story, she dropped some serious truth bombs about the importance of family:
“I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it,” she explained.
“I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers.”
“Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family. My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water.
“No-one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it’s life.”
That’s great that she loves her family so much, and it’s a good rule to live by… if you have a good family and not a shit one. Sometimes your friends become your family because the one you were born with isn’t much of a family at all. It’s all relative, but I get what she’s going for here.
Also, world, stop treating gay kids like shit. Stop treating black kids like shit, stop treating fat kids like shit, stop treating anyone who’s “different” like shit. Seriously.
