Chloe Moretz did little preparation for her role as Hit-Girl in ‘Kick-Ass 2’ despite her character’s numerous fight scenes.
She said: “I had a weekend off between ‘Carrie’ and ‘Kick-Ass 2’, so I didn’t get any training, really. It was kind of like muscle memory for me, so we just kind of jumped right into the full choreography for the film immediately. I literally showed up and we started filming one of the first fight scenes in the first 10 days.
“We did some boxing, some jiu-jitsu, just to get me back warmed up into it. But it was mainly stuff I’d already learned and fine-tuning it. ”
The 16-year-old star also admits it was “weird” to jump from her role as troubled telekinetic teenager Carrie to playing her feisty, foul-mouthed ‘Kick-Ass’ character again.
She explained to BANG Showbiz: “I went from being in pig’s blood every night for two months to having a weekend off and going straight into my purple, leather outfit and fighting and doing crazy stuff. It was very bipolar.”
‘Kick-Ass 2’ is in cinemas now.
