At just 15 years old, Chloe Moretz already has a string of films under her belt and is fast growing into a distinguished young woman.
But in a new interview with Flaunt magazine, the teen star says there is still far more to come from her – revealing she is holding back from offers to front fashion campaigns until she is older.
The Kick-Ass actress does, however, give a glimpse of the moody model poses she is capable of in what is arguably her most mature photoshoot to date.

All grown up: Chloe Moretz strikes a series of moody model poses for the new issue of Flaunt magazine
Chloe evokes the kind of demeanour of
the Olsen sisters, as she moodily slouches and pouts into the camera
wearing an array of stylish designs.
Speaking to the mag, she explains
about fashion campaigns: 'I’m not doing campaigns yet. I want to wait a
couple years, because I
think if I do it right now, where am I going to go when I’m 20 and I’ve
already done two campaigns or something
'You know, I figure, why do
everything so young and so fast I’m only 15. Why rush everything I’m
saving a lot of stuff for later. A fashion campaign will come in due

Chloe also explains how she has ambitions for further education and has set her sights on university in the future.
She reveals: 'I’m hopefully going to Columbia University. I want to do a
minor in Art History and major in Criminal Psychology.
'I find criminal
psychology incredibly fascinating and scary and how volatile the human
mind can be.

'And I really love classical art, definitely. I mean, I’ve
been to so many amazing places in Paris and London, and I’ve seen some
Moretz was the cover star for Flaunt's The Psychoanalytic Issue: Behavioural Patterns.
Speaking about the choosing film roles, she explains how her characters tend to be nothing like her.
'I mean, yeah. I’ve done some kid stuff, but I mean
I’m just driven to do stuff that is not ‘me,’ you know
'I just had a
meeting with a director and I have three pages of notes on the
psychology of the character and her thoughts and her past. It’s, like,
as complicated as genetics.'
In another recent interview Moretz
spoke about the Carrie remake film she is currently shooting, saying it
is going to be 'darker and more psychological' than the original 1976
She will play the titular role of a
bullied schoolgirl who discovers she has psychic powers and uses them to
cause havoc in her hometown – and revealed the movie will have
similarities to 2010 psychological thriller Black Swan.
She said: 'It's darker and much more
psychological. More Black Swan. You're really looking into her mind and
it really looks into the relationship of Margaret and Carrie. It's set
in modern time, so it's a lot different.'
The 15-year-old actress confirmed the
remake will be based on the Stephen King novel of the same name more
than the previous motion picture – which starred Sissy Spacek and Piper
Laurie, with Brian De Palma at the helm – even though she admits the
film was 'one of the best movies ever made'.

She explained: 'I'm actually not
looking at the original, even though De Palma's movie was one of the
best movies ever made. It's completely iconic and I'm proud to be able
to be doing a retooling of it. We're kind of going off the book.'
Chloe is delighted to be working with
director Kimberly Peirce on the project – which sees The Kids Are
Alright star Julianne Moore lined up to play her alter-ego's abusive,
fundamentalist Christian mother Margaret – because she trusts the helmer
'more than a lot of directors'.
She added to ComingSoon.net: 'I start
that June 1st. It's going to be very well done. I don't want to jinx it,
but [Peirce] is a genius, genius, genius director.
'I would never do it with someone that
I don't trust. I trust her more than a lot of the directors I've worked
with. She's the right woman for the job.'
