Chloë Grace Moretz, a teenage actress who has participated in films like Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, does not like the fact of Kim Kardashian’s existence. Since March of this year, Moretz has made a habit of tweeting rude things at Kardashian, unprompted, and it hasn’t worked out so well for her. (The Kardashian feud may have even contributed to Moretz’s recent breakup with teen celebutante Brooklyn Beckham.) In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Moretz reflected on all of this, and revealed that she asked Hillary Clinton about it, good grief.
“I realized if I stop talking about the negativity then it can’t thrive. And that’s something I came to very, very recently,” Moretz said, regarding the Twitter war that she started with Kardashian. “I think I gave my attention to people that didn’t deserve my attention. So in some ways I think I regret giving them the attention, [though] I don’t regret what I said.”
To be clear, what she said was that Kardashian should not post nude selfies on social media, because it, uhh, sets a bad example. (When Glamour asked Moretz why she herself posted bikini selfies, then, Moretz argued, “I do it because it’s a body-confidence thing.”)
Hillary Clinton, who for some reason picked Moretz as a teen campaign surrogate, apparently advised Moretz to stop tweeting at Kardashian. Moretz explained her Clinton-aided epiphany to the Hollywood Reporter this way:
I realized that being the most opinionated and loud person in the room is not always the most impactful. I learned that from Hillary. “It’s great to be feisty,” those were her exact words. But sometimes the smartest way to get into the psyche of people is to be the quietest person in the room. Let everyone else bicker and throw their words around and then you come in with the quiet voice and that will be the most impactful.
It’s great to be feisty. Hillary Clinton is the most patient woman alive.
