Chloë Grace Moretz Almost Gave in to Plastic Surgery

To be clear, this post is not about whether plastic surgery is good or bad. There are many people who undergo procedures and it ends up being an overwhelmingly positive experience. Others, unfortunately, go under the knife for the wrong reasons and it can have a lifelong damaging effect. In old Hollywood, there seemed to be more of a desire to be a "natural beauty" than there is today when so many stars have altered their appearance in some way. It definitely sends a message to fans but, also, to younger actors and actresses in the industry.

Landing his first major gig when he was just eight years old, Wood claims that his early entry into business has taught him some pretty sad and terrifying things.

There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind. There is darkness in the underbelly – if you can imagine it, it's probably happened." The 35-year-old Lord of the Rings star went on to say that his mother was a great source of protection since she was more concerned about his well being than his career.

If you don't have some kind of foundation, typically from family, then it will be difficult to deal with." Wood went on to add that he believes that the sex crimes are “probably still happening” in Hollywood and that the young and the innocent are particularly vulnerable since “people with parasitic interests will see you as their prey.”
