Chloe Grace Moretz is very protective of her family.

The 16-year-old actress's four older brothers, Ethan, Colin, Brandon and Trevor, are more important to her than any of her friends and she would do anything for them.

The 'Carrie' star told the October issue of Seventeen magazine: ''Never choose your friends over your family or a boyfriend or girlfriend over the family. My mom [nurse Teri] has always taught us that blood is thicker than water. No one will ever understand the dynamic of your family. Ever. We are the closest family ever and we are the most insane family ever. It may look weird to others, but to us, it's life.

''I have two gay brothers and two straight brothers, and my gay brothers were treated horrifically until they grew up and understood how to deal with it.

''I will delete you and I will block you, and you will not be a part of my life if you ever say anything bad about my brothers.''

Chloe is also inspired by her close friends, who are all just as ambitious as she is.

She said: ''What my friends and I have in common is that we all strive to do something. They want to go to good colleges, be writers, publicists, fashion designers --whatever it is they want to do, they know what they want and are gunning for it.''
