Actors go on talk shows to promote their latest film all the time, but I assure you that Chloe Grace Moretz’s “Conan” appearance from last night is much more dangerous than normal. The actress was there to promote “Kick-Ass 2,” a hyper-violent action film that has definitely left the 16 year old actress with way more knowledge about fighting and handling weapons than most teens her age possess.
Case in point: a butterfly knife, or a Balisong.
Moretz busted one out at host Conan O’Brien’s request during their interview, and then proceeded to wow the audience with her fancy flip work. Moretz professed to being a bit rusty with her skills but, to those of us who can barely handle butter knives with competence, she sure looked like a pro. You can check out the knife demo clip and the rest of the interview—including Moretz’s story about encountering a drunk Hit-Girl fan at a Paul McCartney concert—after the jump.
