Moretz: Reality shows should relax

Chloë Grace Moretz has compared television shows in the UK and US.

Chloë Grace Moretz says American reality shows take things too seriously.

The 16-year-old actress stars in hit movie franchise Kick-Ass, as the cool crime fighter character Hit-Girl.

Chloë filmed the second instalment of the movies in the UK at the end of last year and immersed herself in British TV.

“We made the movie while they were filming X Factor and I was in London so I know all about the X Factor in the UK. You have some funny people that can’t sing but always manage to last until the final four. Britain loves the cheese factor. It’s fun,” she laughed to BBC Radio 1. “In America we take it way too seriously. In the US the X Factor is very American. We can take a joke, but we can’t take a joke, if you know what I mean. You guys can do sarcasm.”

Chloë continued to discuss her favourite shows. She likes British long-running dramas, and has a fondness for bargain hunting shows too.

“I got into EastEnders and Hollyoaks while I was here too,” she continued.

“We have Storage Hunters in the US and Hardcore Pawn, it’s about a pawn shop in Detroit. They come in and pawn their TVs these people make some serious cash. They walk in and say, ‘Hey how y’all doing I got this TV for sale’ there has to be some bareback American wrestling at the end.”

The young star is currently promoting Kick-Ass 2 in which her character has some intense fight scenes. She joked that her parents aren’t worried by the violence as she doesn’t have murderous tendencies.

“I was 11 when I did the original hit girl movie. I think in the first film you just saw Hit-Girl, but in the second one you see the girl behind the mask,” she explained.

“Yeah, my parents have seen it, don’t worry. It is slightly shocking but it’s not a big deal. They know I don’t take the violence seriously, if I did I’d be walking off set and killing people and I don’t want to be in jail.”
