Chloe Grace Moretz is talking about the main lesson she wants people to learn from her recent response to the horrifying Family Guy meme that was a complete “headf**k,” and she can sum it up in two words: have more compassion.
The 25-year-old actress told ET on the red carpet for The Peripheral’s Prime Video debut at the storied Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday night that she hoped there was more compassion in the world after discussing the influence the Family Guy meme had on her life for more than a year.
Last month, Moretz revealed to Hunger Magazine for the first time that she “essentially became a recluse” as a result of being inundated with the Family Guy meme that originated from a picture of her entering a hotel with a pizza box. It was one of the most popular memes at the time, she claimed, because the image “was altered into a figure from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso.”
When I brought up how everyone was making fun of my body with someone, they said, “Oh, shut the f**k up, it’s funny. The woman claimed to the source, “I just remember sitting there and thinking, my body is being used as a joke and it’s something I can’t alter about who I am, and it is being plastered all over Instagram. “It was as innocent as carrying leftovers into a motel. And it’s still difficult for me to get over that meme when I see it today.

Moretz says she thinks there was a lesson to be learned after being candid and explaining how the meme makes her feel, just weeks after coming out about the experience that caused her to feel “severely uncomfortable” and “hyperventilate” whenever she was in the vicinity of photographers.According to Moretz, “I think the big point is that kindness is a really key aspect of humanity and simply being nice with the words that you speak to one another, the things that you post online.” “I believe that compassion is essential, and I sincerely hope that more of it may be found in the world.”
Moretz is one thing that will be much more prevalent in the world very soon. The Peripheral, a new science fiction television program from the producers of the HBO sensation Westworld, starring the actress. Flynne Fisher, portrayed by Moretz, is a skilled gamer who lives in rural America and makes extra money by playing VR games for affluent people.She uses that money to assist her ailing mother, but everything she knows is turned upside down when she dons a beta headset and finds herself in a futuristic London that is “a sleek and mysterious world, alluringly different from her own hardscrabble existence,” according to the official show synopsis.
Even though Moretz considers it an honor that the show is being compared to Westworld, she also points out their differences.
I consider it a tremendous honor to be compared to Westworld. The main focus of our show is the brother and sister’s familial tie, and I believe that no matter how far into sci-fi you go, you’re always going to come back home, which is what I would call the difference, she says. She joked that the producers couldn’t get them out of their trailer half the time because their gaming was that serious.
Jack Reynor plays Burton Fisher, Mortez’s brother, in the new season. She and Reynor also catch up while playing Call of Duty while wearing headsets because they both reside in Los Angeles.
Moretz didn’t actually need to spend a lot of time in the gaming realm to get ready for it. Having grown up playing video games and defeating her four brothers along the way, she was already a member of that universe. She quips that it would be “a bit of an understatement” to describe her as a gamer.
