While she doesn't criticize her co-star's decision to avoid doing press for the film, saying "to each their own," Kick-Ass 2 star Chloe Grace Moretz, who plays Hit-Girl in the action-comedy out next week, doesn't believe his concerns about screen violence are founded.
"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," Moretz told Yahoo! Movies in a recent interview.
"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," Moretz continued. "I don't want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do."
Moretz, the breakout star of Kick-Ass, will have even more to do in next week's film, which is an adaptation both of the Kick-Ass 2 miniseries by Mark Millar and John Romita, Jr. and the Hit-Girl standalone mini they did as well.
