Chloe, who has been acting since she was seven, added: ‘I’ve had to look at Hollywood my whole life.
‘The people I’ve been comparing myself to are people who are not real.’

In 2016 Chloe, who will next star in The Miseducation of Cameron Post, criticised Kim Kardashian for posting nude selfies.
Chloe responded to a naked photo posted by Kim by urging the reality star to teach girls that they had more to offer than simply their bodies, to which Kim tweeted that ‘nobody knew’ who Chloe was.
Most recently Chloe who is believed to have been single since her split from David and Victoria Beckham’s 19-year-old son earlier this year, has spoken out about a film she co-starred with Louis C.K.
The film I Love You, Daddy was shelved after the comedien admitted to sexual harassment.
And now, nine months later, Chloe has taken a stand, saying it shouldn’t be released at all.
‘I think it should just kind of go away, honestly. I don’t think it’s time for them to have a voice right now,’ the 21-year old actress said in an interview with The New York Times, referring to men accused of sexual harassment.
