Chloe Grace Moretz has admitted that a viral meme mocking her appearance made her withdraw from the spotlight and left her dealing with anxiety. The Carrie actress, 25, told Hunger magazine that an internet joke where her photo was altered to make her resemble a long-legged Family Guy character resulted in her suffering from body dysmorphia.
‘I just remember sitting there and thinking, ‘My body is being used as a joke and it’s something that I can’t change about who I am, and it is being posted all over Instagram,” she told the publication. On social media platforms, an image of Chloe carrying pizza into a hotel was posted next to the cartoon persona Legs Go All the Way Up Griffin.
‘This photo got manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso, and it was one of the most widespread memes at the time,’ the actress told the publication about the 2016 snap.
In the real-life scene Chloe looked chic in black shorts and black heels that showed off her figure.
But Moretz explained, ‘Everyone was making fun of my body and I brought it up with someone and they were like, ‘Oh, shut the f**k up, it’s funny.”
Aside from acting Chloe has hit the headlines for dating Brooklyn Beckham.
