Chloe Grace Moretz confirmed what we all knew to be true Monday night. The 18-year-old star of Universal Pictures’ Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, where she played “Plead the Fifth” for the first time. “I’m very, very nervous,” Moretz said.
Host Andy Cohen asked her three questions, giving her just one chance to pass. After asking what would happen if she were to be trapped in an elevator with Kim Kardashian following their social media scuffle (watch the video for her answer), Cohen brought up Moretz’s Complex cover story. In it, the actress said Taylor Swift was “a talented girl” but said she was not a fan of “squads,” as they “appropriate exclusivity.”
According to Moretz, the two quotes were taken out of context. “What actually happened was they asked me about the meaning of the word ‘squad,’ and what I said was, ‘I don’t like the word squad because it does create exclusively.’ But it was never against Taylor and it was never against her squad,” she said. “It was obviously social media and the public turning women against women, which has been happening for years.” To make her point clear, Moretz added, “It wasn’t about Taylor Swift. It was never about Taylor Swift. They just enjoy turning Taylor against me because it creates a good headline.”
Cohen’s third and final question got a little more personal. “Last time you were here, I asked you about your relationship with Brooklyn Beckham,” he recalled. “You were like, ‘Uh, we’re friends.'” At the time—Sept. 22, 2014, to be exact—Moretz played coy about the 17-year-old scion, telling a loyal viewer, “He’s a very good guy. He’s a good person. I enjoy hanging out with him.”
In hindsight, Moretz said Monday, “I was shady.”
This time around, Cohen brought the receipts—in the form of Instagram photos, natch. “Since then, you’ve posted a picture on Instagram of him kissing your head. He recently posted a picture of you on Instagram calling you ‘bae,'” he told Moretz. “What is your relationship?”
“We’re in a relationship. It’s fine. It’s no biggie. And I think that, you know, the more I don’t make it mysterious, the more that people don’t care,” she said. “So yes, we’re in a relationship.”
Moretz added, “Very exciting news, I’m sure!”
