Chloe Moretz: 'Martin Scorsese is like an uncle'

March 11th, 2011

Chloe Moretz sees Martin Scorcese as an uncle.

The 14-year-old actress - who stars in the director's upcoming 'Hugo Cabret' - says she feels so comfortable in the movie heavyweight's presence she feels like he's part of the family.

She explained: "I was so nervous but from the minute I met him in the audition he makes you feel at home, like he's your uncle.

"He loves his actors and he loves what he does and you can see that. I had a delightful time and I'd work with him again in a heartbeat."

The 'Kick-Ass' star also worked with Sir Ben Kingsley and Sir Christopher Lee on the new film and was full of praise for her seasoned co-stars for their talent and historical knowledge.

She said: "Almost all my scenes were with Ben, he's so cool, such a cool guy. Very theatrical. He knows what to do when he gets in front of a camera. He knows how to take the screen over.

"But Sir Christopher Lee and Marty and Ben were like walking history books, they just spew knowledge. I was like, 'I feel so dumb around you!' "
