Having one older brother can be plenty intimidating for a boyfriend, even one as cool as Brooklyn Beckham. But four older brothers? That would be stressful for anyone. But that is what Chloë Grace Moretz, 19, and her beau Beckham, 17, have to deal with on a regular basis, she explained to James Corden on The Late Late Show Wednesday. Moretz confirmed her relationship with the oldest son of David and Victoria Beckham on Watch What Happens Live earlier in the week. She said her brothers—Brandon, Trevor, Colin, and Ethan—were "very macho men" who definitely take on the tough protector role when it comes to her gentleman callers. "They're pretty like, 'Don't mess with my sister,'" she said.
Moretz said her brothers and Beckham even correspond secretly via text. "I was like 'What, what are you doing?' Maybe they are intimidating each other on text messages," said Moretz. "You think your brothers are sending him abusive texts?" asked Corden. "Like selfies of me and my brother like, 'See, I'm always here,'" said Moretz laughing. "So your brothers bring the full on smackdown on Brooklyn?" said Corden. "No, they like him so they are nice to him... now," she said of Beckham. But in the beginning of their relationship she said they were a little tougher. She had to reassure them that she was the older woman and therefore in control.
Fellow guest Adam Pally started chiming in about "those tough group of boys, those Grace Moretzs." "When you're a Grace Moretz, you're a Grace Moretz all the way," said Big Bang Theory star Simon Helberg, quoting West Side Story. The Neighbors 2 actress then corrected them, as Grace is actually her middle name, so her brothers are just Moretzs. "That sounds a lot tougher. Brooklyn Beckham better watch out when those Moretzs are in town. They sound like a gang the T-Birds would have a fight with," said Corden. Well, hopefully it doesn't come to that. But it's nice to know her brothers always have her back. Though they may want to be careful if they ever meet Beckham's dad.
