Chloë Sevigny is featured in the Fall 2018 issue of Who What Wear’s online magazine.
“One of the worst things I ever heard was from a female casting director, who said, ‘You have to make the men want to fuck you and the women want to be you,'” Sevigny recalls. “I was a real weirdo kid. But I wasn’t allowed to be. Everyone was like, You have to be more approachable. Hollywood thinks you’re too weird. You’re never going to get any parts. Meanwhile I was like, Johnny Depp gets to be weird! But it didn’t work for me.”
“That’s why everyone else thinks you’re so cool, though,” says Stewart.
“Well now that’s acceptable,” Sevigny explains. “Now ‘weird’ is a brand. But before, it wasn’t. Before, you were telling Hollywood you didn’t want to be a part of it.”
