LOS ANGELES:-  Chloe Grace Moretz claims she was told to have some ribs removed to improve her figure by giving her a more defined waistline. The 19-year-old actress admitted Hollywood insiders frequently suggested she change her appearance in order to boost her chances of success. She said: ''I used to get told to change my teeth all the time, because I had a gap, and I was told that to help give me more of a waistline, they could take out some ribs. ''Also, I had some acne when I was younger so there was a lot of pressure to deal with that.''–CM

 ''If I had done any of those things I wanted to back then, I wouldn't know who I am today. ''Anyway, you shouldn't be allowed to have plastic surgery before you're an adult.'' And Chloe feels frustrated that Hollywood seems to increasingly value image over actual talent. She said: ''What is so hard about this industry is that, after a while, the acting becomes a very small part of a very heavily calculated [public] role. ''When what matters most isn't my branding or my looks or my boyfriend, but my acting. ''And if I love a part, I will work my butt off to make sure I get it.'' The 'Clouds of Sils Maria' actress takes a sensible approach to her diet and would never ''starve'' herself with a juice cleanse. She said: ''I can be the best my body can be through training and eating cleanly. ''And that doesn't mean a 500-calorie-a-day diet, by the way, because you shouldn't ever be going beneath 1,200. ''And sure, you can go on a juice cleanse if you want, but be under no illusions; you are starving yourself. That and moving water weight around.''
