Chloë was just 6 years old when she landed her first film role in 2005's Heart of the Beholder. The year before, she briefly starred in the CBS drama series The Guardian.

She rose to fame in the industry at the age of 12 after starring in the 2010 hit film Kick-Ass alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Nicolas Cage.

At 14, Chloë had her first leading project with Carrie (2013), in which she played the title character, Carrie White. She later appeared in several popular films including Neighbors 2 and If I Stay.
But despite her years of experience in the industry, Chloë was still "shot down" by others, most of whom she says were older men, whenever she tried to bring her ideas to the table.

On this week's Reign With Josh Smith podcast, Chloë, now 25, opened up about having to deal with people on set who were "unhappy with a young woman" in their position.

"It was always weird from my first starring role when I was 14, in Carrie," she said. "It was always very interesting to see who is really unhappy with a young woman."

"By that point I had already been working for so many years - almost 10 years - and growing up while having increasingly important roles on set, it was always very interesting to see the backlash I would get from a lot of people," continued she continued.
"The majority of them were definitely older men who would infantilize me," Chloë said. "If I had to bring real things to the table, it would often be shot down."

"It was a really wild power struggle and power dynamic as a young girl who had been working for 10, 11, 12 through my teenage years and directing films but was still a kid in every sense of the word. " She continued.

"I felt like I always really struggled with figuring out how to act in a way that would be respected so I could be respected on set and get the recognition that I think I deserve," she said.

"In order to have a voice in the same game when playing characters who are my age, I advocate for female characters who are exactly my age at that point in time. And even having to stand up to an older man for his 14, 15, 16 year old self is a really, really crazy kind of mindfuck,” she added.

Chloë said she learned to be "very cute" and "hind-legged" in how she approached these older men with her ideas.

"It taught me to suggest questions and make the ideas their ideas, so then it'll come back and be like, 'Oh my god, what a novel idea you have for my character that I totally didn't like you on any.' proposed in a special way,'” she said.

"It was an interesting dynamic and as I grew up and my characters grew up, I always had to be very sweet and very reserved in the way I proposed things, but strong," she added.

Elsewhere in the podcast, Chloë discussed how she experienced "anxiety and guilt" after getting used to "pleasing people." She said: “For a long time I always operated under this guise, which is what I wanted to achieve on the outside. … Even just in my small groups in my life and the people around me, I was just philanthropic.”

Chloë's latest comments come just two months after she battled anxiety and body dysmorphia thanks to a "horrible" viral meme about her physique.

The meme, which features an edited photo of Chloë next to Family Guy character Legs Go All the Way Up Griffin, saw the young actor trending on social media when it was created in 2016.
"I've actually never really talked about it, but there was a meme that really touched me when I walked into a hotel with a pizza box in my hand," Chloë told Hunger magazine in September. "And that photo was manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and short torso, and it was one of the most popular memes at the time."

"Everyone was making fun of my body and I approached someone about it and they were like, 'Oh shut up, it's funny,'" she recalled.

Chloë said that every time she was photographed because of the public ridicule, she became "very scared" and ended up becoming a recluse.

"I basically became a recluse," she said. "It was great because I got away from the photographers and was able to be myself and have so many experiences that people weren't photographing, but at the same time being photographed made me very scared. My heart rate would increase and I would hyperventilate.”
