Chloe Grace Moretz insists she respects Jim Carrey's decision to skip out on promotional work for their new film "Kick-Ass 2," but disagrees with his opinion on the violence in the movie and its influence on the audience.

Jim Carrey plays a vigilante named Colonel Stars and Stripes in "Kick-Ass 2," but recently refused to take part in a publicity campaign for the movie. According to WENN, Carrey believes he can no longer support the film following a school shooting in Connecticut last year. Carrey cited the movie's "level of violence" for his decision.

According to The Inquisitr, the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut caused Carrey to re-think his participation in violent films. But Moretz, 16, does not agree with Carrey's belief that the movie encourages violence in society. 

Moretz, who plays a costumed assassin in "Kick-Ass 2," told The Sun: "It's a movie. If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn't go to see Pocahontas because you are going to think you are a Disney princess.

"If you are that easily swayed, you might see The Silence of the Lambs and think you are a serial killer. It's a movie and it's fake, and I've known that since I was a kid... I don't want to run around trying to kill people and cuss. If anything, these movies teach you what not to do."

Referring to Carrey, she added: "Each to their own. I know the movie I made and it's all good and I respect his decision."

A young gunman killed 20 children and six adults at Connecticut's Sandy Hook Elementary School in December, sparking a debate in America over weapons and gun control laws, and whether violent movies influence the behavior of disturbed individuals, WENN reports.
