Charlize Theron admits to being a fan of Chloe Moretz in their mother-daughter team-up for The Addams Family

October 22, 2019 – alike Editorial Team

The OG family of Halloween, The Addams Family, is back on the big screen in the first animated comedy. It's a nostalgic remake, and a new exciting film for the younger generation.

See the Film's trailer below:


Charlize Theron lends her voice to Morticia Addams, the sultry, frosty mother of the clan.

“I think at the core, why people really respond to the Addams family, is because ultimately they will always be Addams and they take pride in that and never try to change themselves for anybody,” she says. “We all want to believe that we live our lives authentically, especially within our family circle. And this is a family that lives to the extreme. But there is something that is very grounded, because even though they're trying to kill each other, they love each other, and you really see that.”

“This film reminds us that whatever we think is normal is something very different for each individual,” adds Theron. “Of course, it’s a really fun film to go see, but there is an underlying message: being different is not a bad thing and we need to celebrate that a little bit more. And I love that I'm a part of something that carries that message.”



Wednesday Addams, voiced by Chloe Moretz, is the teen queen of shock whose special skills include lurking, night-crawling, and tormenting her beloved younger brother, Pugsley. 

“She knows she's a little bit strange and she likes being off-putting to people, and she finds it funny to watch people squirm. Which is fun to play,” says Moretz. “But deep down she’s just a teenager: she wants to make her mom mad and find her own sense of freedom. She feels really confined inside the house and she really wants to get out there.”

Theron is a fan of Moretz. "I'm like a stalker when it comes to Chloë Moretz,” says Theron, laughing. “I’ve basically have tried to put her in every single film that I've either produced or acted in, and I've been fortunate enough to work with her a couple of times and she's a good friend of mine. I’ve always felt motherly towards her, so it's kind of perfect that we got to do this."

Moretz was only six-years old when Addams Family Values came out, but she vividly remembers watching it. Moretz is excited to bring this original version of this crazy family to a younger generation. “I think kids will really enjoy their first taste of The Addams Family,” she says. “Because it is unlike any other story. And it's incredibly authentic, raucous, and wild. It's silly but it's also got a lot of heart, because it ultimately is about supporting one another's differences.”

The Addams Family will be showing this October 30, 2019 across all movie theaters nationwide.
