We are accustomed to hearing stories of former child actors struggles adjusting to life as an adult. No longer seen as the button-nosed kid delivering adorable lines but rather as a regular grown-up, these stars personal lives tend to spiral out of control in the world of drugs and alcohol.

Stars like Lindsay Lohan, Corey Feldman, Amanda Bynes, and Macaulay Culkin have all made the headlines with their erratic behavior. It’s hard to imagine why any parent would subject their child to be part of show business.
Nonetheless, for all the negative press child stars receive we have proof there is no such thing as a curse. Actors like Natalie Portman, Emma Watson, and Jodie Foster prove it is possible to work in your craft from a young age and still grow up to be a normal, level-headed adult. The latest to join the list of successfully transitioning in to adulthood is none other than Chloƫ Grace Moretz.

Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia on February 10, 1997.

By the time she was four years old she had made her TV debut in the series The Guardian.

Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia on February 10, 1997.

It wasn’t until she was cast as Chelsea Lutz in The Amityville Horror that her career took off.

She appeared in Dark Shadows, Room 6, Wicked Little Things, and The Third Nail.

Controversy surrounded her being so young and being involved in such a violent film.

Just because she played a superhero with fowl language, that didn't mean Moretz was like that in real life.

To prepare for her role Moretz trained with Jackie Chan's stunt crew.

"I had amazing people training me. It was easy because I'd done ballet and gymnastics before. It all kind of went together and basically all of it was me. It was a really great thing," she revealed.

She reprised her role of Mindy Macready/Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass 2 in 2013.

When asked how she got involved in the action genre, her answer was simple.

She hasn't always done dark roles.

She reportedly audition for the role of Katniss Everdeen for The Hunger Games.

It seems that the horror genre follows Moretz.

Despite her thriving career, Moretz does not act like a diva.

But as her popularity grew, so did the thirst to know more about her.

In 2010, she revealed to Entertainment Weekly how a press member has stolen her iPad.

She has been involved in seven movie remakes.

The 20-year-old has a tattoo with a very personal meaning.

Moretz is very close to her family and does not tolerate any type of trolling.

"My mom has always taught us that blood is thicker than water," Moretz said.

Her brother Brandon is her business manager.

In fact, fans can thank a family member for Moretz getting into show business.

Moretz used to help her brother learned his lines.

She has over 13.1 million Instagram followers.

Moretz considers herself a feminist.

She may only be 20 years old but this Hollywood starlet knows the pressure of being a young woman in Hollywood.

"I try to break barriers. I try to not post Instagrams where I Facetune my face and I wear a ton of makeup. I want to be as natural as can be. And I want to break it down for young women so they understand that you're not just 'born' like this," she told Elle magazine last year. "Yes, I have had hair extensions. Yes, the reason I have this body is because I work out seven times a week. Yes, I eat really clean—even though I don't always want to, and I definitely cheat. But you're not just born with this. Sometimes you have to fight for and work for things, and be happy with who you are at the same time. And that's a really hard balance but I want to show it to young women."
