Chloe Grace Moretz has opened up about how filming If I Stay took its toll emotionally.
The film tells the story of Mia, a girl who has an out of body experience and has to decide between waking up after a car accident, to a life very different to what she had before, and not waking up at all. The trailer is enough to set us off, so we can only imagine what it was like during filming!
In a Twitter Q&A one fan asked if she ever had to stop a scene because of the high emotion, and Chloe replied: “I would never stop a scene, but i def had scenes where i couldnt stop crying after, also i would go home and cry at times.
“It was very personal, and very emotional, i spent weeks having to imagine the loss of a family and that was very hard 2 do (sic).”
Poor Chloe! It must have been such a huge change from her previous films Kick-Ass and Carrie, though she says she loved it:
“We had so much fun going to concerts and hanging out on weekends as a cast, also we went xmas shopping (sic).
“I truly loved every single person, bc we played a family we became very close (sic).”
