Chloe Grace Moretz Reflects on 'Horrific' Family Guy Meme, Says She 'Basically Became a Recluse' As a Result

"I remember just sitting there and thinking, My body is being used to make fun of me, and that's something I can't change about myself, and it's being posted all over Instagram."

Chloe Grace Moretz opens up about how the "horrific” social media memes she created about herself negatively affected her mental health.

The actress spoke with Hunger Magazine about the "Family Guy” meme she made about her body. She revealed that she was self-conscious, experienced body dysmorphia, and eventually "became a recluse" following the viral meme.

"For a long period, I was able be both the Chloe people see and the Chloe I am in private. Moretz, 25, said that those two worlds collided. "I felt really raw, vulnerable and open." "Then came the flood of horrible memes that began to be sent to me about myself."

She said that although I haven't really discussed this, there was one meme that really affected her: me walking into a hotel carrying a pizza box in my hands. "And this picture was manipulated to become a character from Family Guy', with long legs and a short torso. It was one of the most popular memes of all time."

The "Carrie” star recalled how the meme hurt and how it felt for her to be mocked by others.

Moretz stated, "Everyone was making fun at my body." "And I remember just sitting there and thinking, My body is being used to make fun of me and it's something I can't change. It's being posted all over Instagram. It was as simple as walking into a hotel with leftovers. It's still a difficult meme for me to conquer.

"After that, it was kind of sad."

She said that she was "super self-conscious" after the meme and was "severely anxious" about being posed.

Moretz said, "It took a layer off something I used to like, which was getting dressed and going to a floor and taking photos. It made me very self-conscious." "And I believe that body dysmorphia, which we all experience in this world, is extrapolated to the issues of social media. It's a headf ---."

She said, "I became a recluse." It was wonderful because I was free from photographers, and was able to be me, and to have so much experiences that people don't photograph. But it also made me extremely anxious when I was photographed. My heart rate would increase and I would hyperventilate.

The "Kick-Ass” star answered a question about whether the coronavirus epidemic had helped alleviate her fears of being photographed in public. I definitely enjoyed that experience. It was as simple as putting on a hat, putting on a mask, and then putting my hood on. I could do a lot more like go to a concert, bite my lips, or have undocumented pimples.

She said that the pandemic was a time of reflection for her.

Moretz spoke of her work schedule, saying that she was able to forget about worrying about next month and what she would do in a week for the first time. Moretz said, "I know it's a privilege to say that. I'm very conscious of that." It was a time for reflection and self-analysis for me. My father died in the pandemic. However, there was significant change during this transformative period.

She continued, saying, "To say these past two years were transformative is an understatement. I am a completely different girl now than I was. "I feel like a woman now."
