"Carrie" actress Chloe Grace Moretz believes that family is a priority and she does not tolerate bullying, especially not against her brothers.
In a recent interview, the 16-year-old actress shared her views on family and bullying, explaining that her family was closest to her heart. Moretz will star in the upcoming horror film "Carrie" next month-- a remake of the 1978 classic.
Speaking with Seventeen magazine, Moretz advised others to always choose family over boys. She claims that advice has been handed down from her own mother, and she believes in putting family first.
"Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family," the star told the magazine in an interview that will appear in the October issue. "My mom (nurse Teri) has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it's life."
With that in mind, Mortez admitted that she is extremely protective over her brothers; particularly two of them who she claims were badly bullied after they revealed their preference for men.
"I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it," she said of her four older brothers, Brandon, Trevor, Colin and Ethan. "I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers."
When Moretz isn't spending time with her family, she also has good friends that she can count on. Much like her, the aspiring actress says they are all goal driven.
"What my friends and I have in common is that we all strive to do something," she said. "They want to go to good colleges, be writers, publicists, fashion designers --whatever it is they want to do, they know what they want and are gunning for it."
