The actress - who turned 15 last week - will not pick up an extra $25,000 (£15,816), because a clause in her contract reportedly states that she would only be entitled to the amount if she was nominated for an Oscar or Golden Globe for the movie.
Moretz would have made another $25,000 (£15,816) if Hugo brought in $150 to $225 million (£95 to £142 million) domestically at the box office, or $50,000 (£31,633) if its takings exceeded $250 million (£158.2 million), TMZ claims.
However, she was only paid her basic salary of $225,000 (£142,350) following reported ticket sales of $61 million (£38.6 million).
Moretz was joined by Liam Hemsworth, Glee star Harry Shum Jr, Josh Duhamel and Gossip Girl actress Jessica Szohr at last night's (February 15) Sony PlayStation Vita launch in Hollywood.
She tweeted from the event about the fun she was having playing with the "insanely amazing" device and listening to celebrity DJs Pete Wentz and Jesse Marco.
Moretz recently revealed a desire to write and produce her own movies, describing herself as an "overachiever".
