Los Angeles - Chloë Grace Moretz "can't really swim".

The 18-year-old actress - who is preparing for the titular role in the 2017 live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid - has admitted she is not that confident in the water.

Speaking on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, she said: "I can't really swim! I mean, I can but I'm not a strong swimmer. Maybe that's the new story - a mermaid who learns to swim!

"It definitely was one of the most exciting things I've ever booked because it's just something I grew up with. 'The Little Mermaid' - we all kind of grew up with it, at least knowing it."

Meanwhile, with a number of projects currently in the mix, the If I Stay star insists she doesn't have time for a boyfriend.

She shared previously: "I'm just going out and meeting people, trying to keep it fun and young and not lock myself down right now.

"I barely have time for my own life, much less someone else's! I'm trying to hold my own as a young woman and make the right decisions - but still try to be a kid. I'm just trying to have fun and be young."
