Chloe Grace Moretz is having second thoughts about reacting to Kim Kardashian's nude selfie that the reality star shared on Instagram earlier this year.
In March, Kardashian claimed she had "nothing to wear" in a flashback photo of herself completely naked, and the image struck a chord with Moretz. "@KimKardashian I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies," she tweeted at the time.
"I realized if I stop talking about the negativity then it can’t thrive. And that’s something I came to very, very recently," Moretz tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I think I gave my attention to people that didn't deserve my attention. So in some ways I think I regret giving them the attention, [though] I don't regret what I said."
The 19-year-old actress says she came to this epiphany thanks to presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton. "Also I realized that being the most opinionated and loud person in the room is not always the most impactful. I learned that from Hillary."
Quoting Clinton, Moretz continues, "'It's great to be feisty,' those were her exact words, but sometimes the smartest way to get into the psyche of people is to be the quietest person in the room. Let everyone else bicker and throw their words around and then you come in with the quiet voice and that will be the most impactful."
That being said, Moretz still doesn't believe Kardashian's nude selfie was sending a positive message. "That picture wasn’t linked to body confidence. It wasn’t a #BodyConfidence or #LoveWhoYouAre," she told the June issue of Glamour, quoting some of Kardashian's hashtags. "It was done in a slightly voyeuristic light, which I felt was a little inappropriate for young women to see. I would hate for young women to feel they need to post certain photos in order to gain likes, retweets, favorites, and male attention."
The Kick Ass star insisted, "I wasn't sl*t shaming. It’s not about body shaming."
After Moretz initially slammed the selfie, Kardashian responded with a mean tweet of her own. "Let's all welcome @ChloeGMoretz to twitter, since no one knows who she is," she wrote. "Your Nylon cover is cute boo."
