Chloë Grace Moretz’s tough love

Chloë Grace Moretz says it’s tough to fall in love at 17.

The young actress has yet to have a serious relationship, but admits she is in no rush for romance. Chloë thinks her friends who are in long-term relationships are missing out on other aspects of life.

“It’s a tough age to fall in love: people change so quickly,” Chloë told Flare magazine. “I don’t want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, because I’m 17 and I shouldn’t have to.

“To my friends I’m like, ‘Dude, you’re wasting away your entire high-school years, and now you’re going to waste away your college years. You’re going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you’re going to get married, and then you’re dead! So you lived your life in a relationship!’ That’s not my style.”

Chloë also spoke about having to learn to play the cello for her new movie If I Stay, in which she plays a musician called Mia who is faced with having to decide between studying at the prestigious Juilliard school or remaining with her boyfriend.

“It’s a very intimate instrument. For a girl especially, you’re wearing a dress and opening your legs and holding this instrument to your body, so it’s an extension of your body,” Chloë explained.

“When you hear cellists play, it almost sounds like a wind instrument because their breathing is linked up to the bow strokes, so as they go down or up, they breathe with the down and up of the bow.”
