You probably recall that Jim Carrey — he of Dumb and Dumber fame — has announced he would not promote Kick-Ass 2, which opens Aug. 16, because the Sandy Hook elementary school massacre made him fear the film is too violent.
Well, Hit-Girl herself, 16-year-old action star Chloë Grace Moretz has a message for co-star Carrey — and anyone else stupid enough to think kids (or anyone) can be mind-controlled by movies (violent or otherwise):
“It’s a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn’t go to see Pocahontas because you are going to think you are a Disney princess. If you are that easily swayed, you might see The Silence of the Lambs and think you are a serial killer. It’s a movie and it’s fake, and I’ve known that since I was a kid…. I don’t want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do.”
