Chloe Moretz Won’t Subscribe To “Squad” Culture

Chloe Moretz is gracing the cover of NYLON magazine’s Dec./Jan. issue and aside from looking absolutely stunning, gave the mag an interview that proves once again she is completely and totally awesome.

Touching on subjects such as feminism, next year’s presidential election, and what it was like growing up in a single parent household, it’s evident Chloe is wise beyond her years, aware of important social issues, and subscribes to living her life in a way that makes everyone she encounters feel equal and included.

So when it came time to talk about her group of celebrity friends, she stamped out the idea of calling them a “squad.” This past summer, the term became the most popular way to describe Taylor Swift‘s massive A-list circle and was adopted by every millennial and beyond as a way to talk about their friends or caption their latest Instagram post.

While the term is beyond played out, Chloe says her reason for not using it is the clique culture it’s attached to. “I agree with having a good core group of friends, but the issue I have with squads is it creates exclusivity,” she told NYLON. “I was never included in those things when I was a kid. I was the weird one that chose to do movies, so now I go out of my way to be nice to people and make them feel included.”

If I was with Chloe right now, I’d be giving her the biggest high-five on the planet. Anyone who isn’t down to subscribe to #squadgoals is basically my new best friend. For the rest of Chloe’s awesome interview and her jaw dropping photo shoot, head over to NYLON for the full story HERE.
