Peyton List revealed that she was once body-shamed by a fellow actress right to her face, and she’s not the only one. Chloe Grace Moretz recently opened up to Variety magazine about how one of her male movie co-stars once called her too fat to date when she was only 15 years old.
She explained, “This guy that was my love interest was like, ‘I’d never date you in a real life,’ and I was like, ‘What?’ And he was like, ‘Yeah, you’re too big for me’ — as in my size. It was one of the only actors that ever made me cry on set.”
CGM “went bawling to [her] brother” immediately after the actor made the horrible comment, and while he “was so angry,” there was really nothing he could do because she had to go back to set to film with him not too long later.
“I had to pick it up and go back on set and pretend he was a love interest, and it was really hard…It just makes you realize that there are some really bad people out there and for some reason, he felt the need to say that to me. You have to kind of forgive and not forget really, but it was just like wow. It was jarring. I look back on it and I was 15, which is really, really dark.”
The 20-year-old actress wouldn’t say who the actor was specifically, but she did offer the info that he was “23, 24 or 25” at the time of the incident.
