Chloe Grace Moretz has said she doesn't feel like she is in any hurry to find a serious boyfriend.
The Kick Ass star, 17, told Canada's Flare magazine that she thought friends who jumped into long-term relationships early in life were making the wrong decision.
She said: " It's a tough age to fall in love - people change so quickly."
Chloe added of dating as a celebrity: "I don't want to have to feel like I have to watch my step, because I'm 17 and I shouldn't have to."
Talking about her friends with long-term boyfriends, she said: "I'm like, 'Dude, you're wasting away your entire high school years, and now you're going to waste away your college years.
"You're going to spend your entire life in a relationship and then you're going to get married...and then you're dead! So you lived your life in a relationship!' That's not my style."
She also said that paparazzi never managed to work out who her boyfriends were when she did date: "When you're with someone who's just your friend, then they take photos, but when you're out with your boyfriend, they never find out.
"It's like, 'You guys are so dumb; you're missing your opportunity!'"
