'Kick-Ass' Star Is Still A Scaredy-Cat (But She Can Beat Up Christopher Mintz-Plasse)

By Sujay Kumar

Chloe Moretz may know how to jump between rooftops, slice criminals with swords, and kick some serious mafia butt as Hit-Girl in Matthew Vaughn's "Kick-Ass," but the 13-year-old actress said she's still just a teenage age girl when it comes to real-life combat.


In an interview with MTV News, Moretz said that if anyone confronts her she won't challenge them to a brutal fight like her "Kick-Ass" alter ego.

"I'm still a scaredy-cat," Moretz said. "Literally, anyone stands up to me I will freakout and call 911."

But before the interview, Moretz exchanged playful blows with co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who plays Red Mist in the film.

"I know when she's going to attack me, and I'm aware of that," Mintz-Plasse said of the only real combat skill he learned during filming.

Explaining away her playful wrestling with Mintz-Plasse, she said she hits him because he's like a brother — and when she beats up her brothers, they're not afraid to hit back.

"I will not hit you," Mintz-Plasse said. "I will not hit a child. I mean a teenager, I'm sorry."

"He's scary," Moretz joked Moretz.
