Published Aug 10, 2018Last year, Louis C.K.'s I Love You, Daddy had its premiere cancelled abruptly when the comedian was accused of sexual misconduct from five women. Now, the film's star Chloë Grace Moretz says she hopes it never sees the light of day.
As revealed in our review from TIFF, the film tiptoes around C.K.'s own sexual misconduct allegations while also referencing Woody Allen's alleged misdeeds. Specifically, it sees Moretz's character, the 17-year-old China, fall in love with a 68-year-old artist played by John Malkovich.
In a new interview with the New York Times, Moretz was asked if she hopes the film will still be released. "I don't think it should be. I think it should just kind of go away, honestly," she said.
"I don't think it's time for them to have a voice right now," she continued, seemingly referring to men who have had their bad behaviour exposed in the #MeToo era.
"Of course, it's devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear. 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," she concluded.
Moretz is currently starring in The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
