Chloe Grace Moretz would prefer if disgraced comedian Louis C.K.’s film I Love You, Daddy, in which Moretz played a starring role, were not to see the light of day.
C.K. starred in, wrote, and directed the film, in which Moretz’s 17-year-old character falls in love with 68-year-old filmmaker, played by John Malkovich.
“I think it should just kind of go away, honestly,” Moretz said of the movie to The New York Times. I don’t think it’s time for [men who sexually harassed women] to have a voice right now.”
I Love You, Daddy premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year and was going to be distributed by The Orchard. The film was to be released on November 17, but it was pulled it a week before due to C.K. admitting to sexual harassment.
“Of course, it’s devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear,” Moretz told the Times. “But at the same time, this movement is so powerful and so progressive that I’m just happy to be in communication with everyone and to see the big change in the face of the industry, which I think is very, very real.”
