Chloe Moretz was told she wouldn't get the lead role in the 'Carrie' remake - because she was too young.

The 15-year-old actress was desperate to take on the part of the bullied schoolgirl in the new version of the movie but was warned by studio MGM she might not get it because her age meant they would have working restrictions.

She said: ''I read the script and when I did I completely fell in love. At first it was just a draft and it was already amazing. It was a beautifully sculptured script.

''And then they said, 'You're 15 and the character's 17/18 so you're probably not going to get the role because you're too young. They don't want a minor because of the timing issues etc.' And I just said, 'Watch me, watch me do this.' ''

However, after several auditions and meetings, Chloe managed to impress director Kimberley Peirce, especially because she was so well prepared when they first met.

She told Collider.com: ''I took in this big folder with all my ideas for the film and all my ideas on 'Carrie'. Everything was written down over about six pages. And then me and Kim sat there and talked for about five hours - about the characters, about the storyline, about life. And we were crying and it was such a beautiful experience we had together.

''I really fought for it and I love proving myself.''
