Being a celebrity has its ups and downs, and it looks like Chloe Grace Moretz has experienced both. Starring in the hit 2013 horror film, "Carrie" and the romantic film, "If I Stay," she is already a familiar face in Hollywood. She also made the headlines when she and Brooklyn Beckham admitted that they were in a relationship. Aside from being an actress, Moretz also takes advantage of her celebrity status to promote women's rights and fight against issues concerning body-shaming and feminism. In fact, she openly called out the movie that she was part of, "Red Shoes And The Seven Dwarfs," for a promotional poster that suggested to the public that being overweight made someone less beautiful.

According to BBC, Chloe Grace Moretz recently revealed that she was a victim of body-shaming when she was still 15 years old. One of her male co-stars fat-shamed her on the set of a project that they were working on and to make things worse that guy was her love interest in the movie, so she had to pretend to love a guy who actually told her that she was too big for him.

Does size really matter?

According to Variety, the male actor bluntly told Moretz that he would never date her in real life. When she proceeded to ask why, the male co-star said that she was too big for him - literally. Chloe Grace Moretz revealed that he really made her cry on the set because of the harsh body-shaming words that he uttered. For a 15-year girl to hear those words, the public could only imagine how devastating and shattering that moment was for the self-esteem.

Chloe Grace Moretz didn't bother to name the actor, but she gave a clue that they weren't the same age. The unnamed actor was already in his mid-20s at that time.

Standing up against body-shaming

Chloe Grace Moretz' brothers are known to be very supportive and protective of "The 5th Wave" actress. In fact, when she and #Brooklyn Beckham were still together, she joked on "The Late Late Show With James Corden" that her brothers were constantly in boyfriend patrol mode.

However, it appears that Moretz' closeness with her brothers can be traced back as early to the time when she was body-shamed at 15 years old. The "Kick-ass" actress revealed that after the hurtful conversation had transpired between her and her male co-star, she went bawling to her brother to release her hurt and embarrassment. Moretz isn't the only actress to have spoken out against #body shaming. Hollywood A-listers, Kate Winslet and, have also spoken openly about being victims of body-shaming
