  • Chloë Grace Moretz said "I Love You, Daddy," the movie she made with Louis C.K., " should just kind of go away."
  • She said the #MeToo movement is more important than her own work.
  • C.K. reportedly purchased back the rights to his movie after at least five women accused him of sexual misconduct in late 2017.

 

Chloë Grace Moretz said she wishes "I Love You, Daddy," the movie she made with the disgraced actor-director Louis C.K., shouldn't be released in the wake of the #MeToo movement.

"I think it should just kind of go away, honestly," Moretz told The New York Times. "I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now."

Moretz said it's a shame to have worked on a movie and for no one to see the results — but the industry's transformations, and its recognition of both the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, are more important.

"It's devastating to put time into a project and have it disappear," she said. "But at the same time, this movement is so powerful and so progressive that I’m just happy to be in communication with everyone and to see the big change in the face of the industry, which I think is very, very real."

In November, at least five women accused C.K. of sexual misconduct. The accusations, made around the same time as the Harvey Weinstein scandal, have had a major impact on C.K.'s career. The Orchard, which had the distribution rights to "I Love You, Daddy," decided not to release the movie. The comedian reportedly purchased back the rights to the film in December, even as copies of it leaked online, but he doesn't appear to have a plan to release it.
