Actor Chloë Grace Moretz is recalling the terrible time when the internet made her body into a meme based on a character from Family Guy, revealing how it had negative effects on her mental health.
In an interview with Hunger TV, Moretz explained that the meme arrived during a time when she was starting to get a lot of unwanted male attention, which led her to feel self-conscious and go to therapy. As Moretz explained, "There was one meme that really affected me, of me walking into a hotel with a pizza box in my hand. And this photo got manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso, and it was one of the most widespread memes at the time." The actor further explained of her post-meme doldrums, "To this day, when I see that meme, it’s something very hard for me to overcome."
