Chloë Moretz 'tired' of blood

2013-10-17 22:30
Los Angeles - Chloë Moretz says the famous blood scene in Carrie left her exhausted.

The 16-year-old actress assumes the role of teenager Carrie White in a remake of the Stephen King novel and she admits filming the classic moment - in which her character has a bucket of blood thrown on her in a high school mean prank - was emotionally taxing.

"I just remember a lot of the stickiness [of] the blood, and how tired I was of having all that blood on me at the end of it."

The Kimberly Peirce-directed adaptation centers on misfit Carrie, who is compelled to use her telekinetic powers when taunted to the brink by her peers and sternly religious mother Margaret (played by Julianne Moore).

Acting lessons

The young actress believes the film has taught her a lot about acting.

She joked: "It was like four months of therapy.

"I learned so much of what to do as an actor. Every movie I do I try to find something new as an actor, so then every next movie I want to do, it's trying to find something that still excites me."
