Chloe Grace Moretz believes that I Love You, Daddy, the film she stars in alongside Louis C.K., should not be released.
“I don’t think it should be. I think it should just kind of go away, honestly,” the actress told The New York Times about the pic’s release in a story published Friday.
The New York premiere of I Love You, Daddy was canceled just hours before the event was set to begin in November. The Times published a story later that day that included testimonials from five women that accused C.K. of sexual misconduct. The film’s distributor, The Orchard, announced that it would not move forward with the release of the film. Moretz is currently on the big screen in the gay-conversion therapy film The Miseducation of Cameron Post.
“I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now,” the actress said, seemingly referring to men like CK who have been accused of sexual misconduct. “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,” added Moretz.
I Love You, Daddy tells the story of a successful TV writer-producer (C.K.) who tries to stop his 17-year-old daughter (Moretz) from starting a romantic relationship with a 68-year-old filmmaker (John Malkovich). C.K. wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film.
