Chloë Grace Moretz: I'm a grown-up now

Chloë Grace Moretz thinks she and her Kick-Ass co-stars were "babies" when they made the first movie.

The 16-year-old is reprising her role as Hit-Girl in the sequel to 2010's Kick-Ass.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Christopher Mintz-Plasse also star in the action movie and the actress can't believe how much they've all matured.

"It was so fun. Being able to be Hit-Girl again was a surreal experience, because you often leave a character behind – especially at 11 years old. Then four years later to put on the costume again and work with the same actors again, wearing the same wig, being with the same hair and make-up team, it’s crazy and totally surreal to do it again. It was so much fun," she grinned to Flicks and Bits.

"Aaron and Chris, they’re like my brothers – and they’ve changed so much! They’ve become such men, you know [laughs]? I worked with them when I feel like they were babies and I was a baby, but now we’ve grown up so much. It’s like a little group of adults now, it’s funny."

The blonde star has won an army of fans thanks to her feisty portrayal in the movie.

It's not just the cast who have matured since the first instalment, although some fans do have odd requests.

"It's funny. They've kind of grown up with me, too. When I did the first film I was 11. People still come up to me and say, 'Oh my God! Wait, no! No way! That's crazy!' I've got an amazing fan group from it, and they're really loyal. They freak out. They say, 'Can you hit me or something?'" she recently laughed.

"That's what someone said: 'Can you punch me in the face?' And I'm like, 'What? No.'"
