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 Chloë 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.
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."
