Is Chloe Moretz just in a shading mood these days?
The outspoken actress equates Taylor's oft-publicized "squad" as "cliques" that "appropriate exclusivity."
Chloe said she actually turned down an invitation to join Taylor's much-lauded crew of female heavyweights.
In the April/May Complex magazine, Chloe said the goal of feminism should be about standing up for universal equality, and "not just about women being powerful." The actress adds, "It's about races being powerful; genders being powerful."
Chloe is friends with Taylor's pal Selena Gomez, whom she stars with in the upcoming film "Neighbors 2." Chloe met Taylor through Selena and she must have made an impression on the "Bad Blood" singer.
The magazine asked if Taylor tried to recruit her for her infamous squad and Chloe said simply "Yes."
But when pressed to elaborate, the actress would only say, "She's a very talented person."
The opinionated feminist actress says she brings her beliefs about equality to work as well. "If you hire me, you're not going to get some little girl that's just going to sit there and be this puppet for whatever you want to push on society and appropriate," she said.
"There have been moments where I've read scripts and said, 'Look… As a young woman, this is what has to change.'"
Chloe was recently on the defense because of her outspokenness, as well. After Kim Kardashian posted a naked (yet censored) selfie of herself, Chloe said, "I truly hope you realize how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies," she tweeted at Kim directly.
She continued, "There's a huge difference in respecting the platform that you're given as a celebrity and slut shaming something I never have done and would never do."
In speaking about her critique of Kim, Chloe later told Elle magazine: "I think a lot of things can be misconstrued in a lot of ways. And I think if people open their minds more, and they try to look deeper into something than just something that is a very big, hot, fiery button to hide behind…
"I think if people looked into something bigger that I was trying to speak upon, they wouldn't be so easy to fire back silly, miscellaneous things."
