Think the 17-year-old star of 'If I Stay' is too young for a retrospective? Think again: With over 20 feature film credits, the talented actor has been in more movies than Daniel Day-Lewis! Here are some highlights.
The Amityville Horror (2005)
Chloë Grace Moretz made her big screen debut at the tender age of seven, playing Ryan Reynolds's daughter in this remake of the 1979 horror landmark. It would set the tone for many dark films to come.
Big Momma's House 2 (2006)
The budding scream queen soon proved she could also handle comedy, holding her own against an enormous, cross-dressing Martin Lawrence.
Voiceover acting came easy to Moretz. Aside from playing "Darby" in several 'Winnie the Pooh' videos, she voiced the young Penny in this animated hit. (Miley Cyrus voiced the older Penny.)
(500) Days of Summer'(2009)
Playing Joseph Gordon-Levitt's precocious little sister in this winsome romance got Hollywood and audiences to really pay attention to this young talent.
This movie, based on the violent graphic novel, made Moretz a household name. At 12, she stunned viewers as the foul-mouthed, pint-sized costumed vigilante known as Hit-Girl. It says a lot when you can steal a movie away from Nicolas Cage.
Let Me In (2010)
The actress, by now no stranger to horror remakes (she also had a small role in the 2008 misfire 'The Eye'), got to play the ageless little vampire, Abby, in this underrated adaptation of Sweden's 'Let the Right One In.'
Lest anyone doubt that the girl could do anything, Moretz adopted a flawless British accent – although playing a Parisian girl – in Martin Scorsese's Oscar-winning love poem to the early days of cinema.
'Hick' was one of Moretz's first true starring vehicles. Unfortunately, the grim tale of a Vegas-bound runaway (Moretz) tormented by a couple of creeps (Blake Lively and Eddie Redmayne) received negative reviews.
Dark Shadows (2012)
Appearing in a Tim Burton movie must be a right of passage for teenage starlets: Like Winona Ryder, Natalie Portman and Christina Ricci before her, Moretz's turn came in Burton's campy take on the cult TV series, opposite Johnny Depp.
Kick-Ass 2 (2013)
The actress willingly revived Mindy "Hit-Girl" Macready for this sequel, but as with several other movies on her resume, her work was a cut above the material she had to work with.
Yet another horror remake! The 15-year-old Moretz was a better fit for telekinetic high school outcast Carrie White than 26-year-old Sissy Spacek was back in 1976, but reactions were mixed and the film failed to match the original's success at the box office.
Including 'If I Stay,' Chloë Grace Moretz has been in at least half a dozen 2014 movies, among them being this Sundance breakout with Keira Knightley. How does she find the time to do her homework?
The Equalizer (2014)
It may be too early to tell, but Moretz's performance as a teen prostitute in this Denzel Washington thriller could be her "Jodie Foster moment," recalling Foster's similar role in the 1976 classic, 'Taxi Driver.'
