I haven't lost out on childhood: Chloe Moretz

Actress Chloe Moretz, 16, says she hasn't lost out on her childhood despite being a movie star. She admits she prefers attending Hollywood premieres over going to school prom parties.

The "Kick-Ass 2" actress, who has been working in Hollywood for most of her life, also says that the perks of fame have allowed her to enjoy an "immense" life already and she hasn't missed out on her youth.

"I think growing up in Hollywood, I've actually had a greater childhood because I've been able to see what I'm learning in my history books, I've been able to go and see around the world, and I've been able to experience it first-hand whereas a lot of my friends have only been able to travel for summer to small locations," femalefirst.co.uk quoted Moretz as saying.

"I've been able to live in London for three years, go to Berlin, go to Bora Bora (islands in the Pacific Ocean) ... go to all these crazy locations and I'm only 16. So I feel my childhood has honestly been a lot more immense than most," she added.

The actress doesn't yearn for normal teenage rituals like going to the prom or shopping at the mall, and says she "loves" dressing up in high-end couture for big red carpet events.

"I've done all that ... I went to the prom, I went to the mall. I've done all that stuff. What I find fun is going to premieres. That's my prom night. I get to dress up and be with the people that support me and talk about the stuff that I love. That's what I love doing," said Moretz.

"I am a normal kid, but what other teenagers look forward to in their year is different from what I look forward to," she added.
