Sep 30, 2022

Chloe Grace Moretz has opened up about a Family Guy meme that people related to her and the impact it had on her wellbeing.

Even though years have gone by since the meme was first shared, she still feels uncomfortable about it after being endlessly mocked online.

She said: "I just remember sitting there and thinking, 'My body is being used as a joke' and it's something that I can't change about who I am, and it is being posted all over Instagram."

The meme was of the Family Guy cartoon character 'Legs Go All the Way Up Griffin', which was next to a picture of Chloe, who had been snapped carrying a pizza into a hotel in 2016.

Speaking to Hunger magazine, Chloe said: "This photo got manipulated into a character from Family Guy with the long legs and the short torso, and it was one of the most widespread memes at the time.

"Everyone was making fun of my body and I brought it up with someone and they were like, 'Oh, shut the f**k up, it's funny'.

"To this day, when I see that meme, it's something very hard for me to overcome."

Chloe said the impact of the meme left her with body dysmorphia and that she felt "kind of sad" that she had to go through the ordeal.

"At the same time, it made me severely anxious when I was photographed," she added. "My heart rate would rise and I would hyperventilate.

"It took a layer of something that I used to enjoy, which was getting dressed up and going to a carpet and taking a photo, and made me super self-conscious.

"I think that body dysmorphia — which we all deal with in this world — is extrapolated by the issues of social media. It's a headf**k.

"To say that these past two years have been transformative is an understatement, to say the least. I'm a very different girl than I was. I feel like a woman now."
