Chloe Grace Moretz at the Carrie Premiere

Chloe Grace Moretz (wearing Valentino) said rather than studying Sissy Spacek’s performance in the original film, she referred to King’s novel for preparation to portray the iconic Carrie. The film centers upon bullying, which Moretz feels is an issue that many teens, including herself, have experienced.
“I think that everyone has experienced bullying at some point in their lives, whether they’re just someone making you feel inadequate or making you feel not skinny enough, not pretty enough, or your hair’s not good enough,” says Moretz.
However, the film’s primary focus is the love turned feud between Carrie and her mother (Julianne Moore). The mother-daughter bond was one of the most important factors director Kimberly Peirce wanted to show in her adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel. If the trailer below is any indication she absolutely nailed it.
Carrie opens nationwide on October 18 and is sure to be one of 2013’s top Halloween hits!
