Chloe Grace Moretz celebrated 18th birthday and driving test success with marathon road trip

Chloe Grace Moretz celebrated her recent 18th birthday by taking a cross-country road trip with her brother's boyfriend.

The Carrie star hit the age milestone and passed her driving test last year (15), and decided to make the most of a career break by getting behind the wheel for a mammoth journey from coast to coast.


"I turned 18 and I, like, finished high school and I got my (driving) license, and I was like, 'I'm a adult', and then I didn't really do anything with it," she told chat show host Jimmy Kimmel. I didn't do anything exciting."


Chloe admits she was nervous about driving at first because "there were cars around me", so she opted to conquer her road fears by hitting the highways all in one go.


"That's what you do when you're terrified of driving," she joked. "But I wouldn't have been able to survive alone. I went with my brother's boyfriend, Nick... and we actually didn't get into one fight, which I was shocked about. I was prepped and ready to have, like, one big brawl... over a bag of Doritos. Things happen when you spend 12 hours in a car."
