“The umlaut isn't on my birth certificate. I had this book as a child called Chloë and Maude, and there was an umlaut on the e, and I said, I want that! It's a little flair. Just to confuse people even more. People always come up to me and say, Oh, you're Chloë Se-VIG-ny, right? Sevigny. Number seven, letter e.”

Good interview with Chloë Sevigny by The Daily Beast from last August in which Chloë talks about working with Whit Stillman, moving to Brooklyn, her upcoming style retrospective “Chloe Book”, and her thoughts on her work in Kids and The Brown Bunny today. Full article on The Daily Beast or under the cut.
Chloe Sevigny on ‘The Cosmopolitans,’ New York’s Frat Boy Takeover, and ‘Asshole’ Michael Alig
The star of ‘Kids’, former NYC club fixture, and fashion icon has reunited with Whit Stillman for a new Amazon series, and is shooting another on Netflix. Over lunch with Marlow Stern, she opened up about her wild life.
Due to some heavy traffic — summer, tourists — I’m five minutes late to my interview with Chloe Sevigny, the actress/city girl/fashionista. The setting she’s chosen is Balthazar, Keith McNally’s chic SoHo bistro, and it couldn’t be more fitting.
We’re here to discuss her role in Whit Stillman’s The Cosmopolitans, a half-hour pilot made for Amazon Studios that will premiere on Amazon Instant Aug. 28. It centers on a group of American expatriates in Paris, played by Adam Brody, Sevigny, and Carrie MacLemore, and is populated by Stillman’s usual brand of upper-class sophisticates, which he coined the Urban Haute Bourgeoisie — basically, the type of people who’d frequent a place like Balthazar.
Upon entering, I spot Sevigny seated in the back, feasting on a plate of oysters, a goat cheese salad, and iced tea. The 39-year-old is looking very summery — you can scope her outfit here, since the Daily Mail apparently snapped her moments after we parted ways — and in good spirits. She whips out her phone and shows me a picture of models clad in fitted hats and T’s sporting the label “Tri-State Represent” on them. It’s part of a fashion line she’s doing with Opening Ceremony that’s launching Sept. 11. “It’s a play on those annoying, white caps that say Syracuse Lacrosse,” she says, laughing. “I think it’s hilarious. We always called all the preppy kids in high school white caps.”
Sevigny grew up Darien, Connecticut, but would go into Manhattan on the weekends. In 1992, she was spotted by Sassy magazine, and became a model/intern for the fashion rag. Then, after graduating high school in ’93, she moved to the city — shaved head and all — and grew into a nightlife fixture, frequenting the Gatien-operated hot spots like Limelight and Tunnel. The following year, Jay McInerney wrote a glowing, 7-page feature on her in The New Yorker dubbed “Chloe’s Scene,” anointing her one of the “coolest girls in the world,” and the year after that, she starred as Jennie, a troubled teen in the zeitgeisty indie film Kids, written by her close pal (and later boyfriend) Harmony Korine. She received an Oscar nod for her gripping turn in 1999’s Boys Don’t Cry, and took home a Golden Globe award for the HBO series Big Love.
Much as we suspected, Chloë Sevigny’s recent visit to Terry Richardson’s studio has translated into a magazine feature, as Chloë is featured on the cover of the August issue of Out, a gay and lesbian fashion, entertainment, and lifestyle magazine. Check out the cover and a couple of small preview pics of the inside images in our gallery, and the full article on Out.com.
Some excerpts from the article:
“I was worried people would be angry that they didn’t cast a real person who was transitioning [for the part of Mia in Hit & Miss],” she says. “I asked why they didn’t, and the producers said they didn’t find the right person. It’s a big responsibility toward that community, and I wanted to do them right.” The show’s writer, Sean Conway, was more categorical. “I don’t think anyone else could have played the part,” he says. “She’s hypnotizing and perfectly balances the tender with the brutal. I could watch her forever.”
[…] “Being around the men on set, being naked, and having that on, I just felt insecure and uncomfortable. Plus the process to put it on was very involved. I had to shave myself, it’s glued on, painted, like any prosthetic. It’s not fun to have someone right up in your private parts,” she deadpans before letting out her hooting laugh, a signature Chloë-ism. “I think the root of why I was so upset with having it on was that I wasn’t fully trusting of the producers and directors,” she admits. “Now I can rest assured, because I’ve seen it, and it’s not gratuitous. It shouldn’t be a show about a fucking penis.'”
[…] “People expect me to say I regret Brown Bunny, but I won’t.”
[…] “Sevigny denies that she’s the clotheshorse she’s made out to be, but does, in fact, know her place in the fashion food chain. For the British premiere of Hit & Miss she requested about 20 dresses for consideration, but only received two. “Aren’t I one of the top searches on Style.com, for crying out loud?” she says with mock disgust. “How hard is it to get a fucking dress from Valentino?” When it’s noted that that quote will definitely make it to print, she clasps her hands together and lets out a raspy laugh.”

Chloë Sevigny was on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour earlier today to talk about her new miniseries Hit & Miss. Listen to the full interview below:
We’re back! And while we were gone, it looks like Chloë Sevigny’s interview in the recently published January 2011 issue of US Playboy‘s been making headlines.
Those who have read the interview will know that Chloë talked among other things a little bit about her experience starring in writer-director-star Vincent Gallo’s infamous film, The Brown Bunny (2003), and the uproar and harsh critique that followed her notorious oral sex scene with Gallo. Interestingly, Gallo himself has now opened up about Chloë’s involvement in the film to NY Post’s Page Six, as follows:
“Chloe and I were never boyfriend and girlfriend. In 1995 we made out once in Paris. I feel Chloe has suggested we were boyfriend and girlfriend to lessen the boldness of her appearance […] and to portray herself as a devoted girlfriend and victim rather than a great radical performer. Chloe brilliantly understood that the media would persist in thinking that she did it out of loyalty to me. […] I am sorry she feels the experience was so startling that she needs therapy to resolve her feelings.”
Peaches Geldof also had something to say to Chloë’s remarks about her in the issue, but who wants to know.
Interesting article and interview with Chloë Sevigny from The Guardian, in which she talks a lot about herself as well as her film work. It’s an honest article with some really nice, candid quotations from Chloë on both her career and her life in general. Full article under the cut.
Chloë Sevigny: The Interview
In the identikit world of the Hollywood leading lady, Chloë Sevigny defies convention. Her quirky looks, iconic sense of style and fearless approach to acting have made her the often controversial queen of the indie movie. Here she reveals why she regrets nothing.
Chloë Sevigny’s laugh is deep and honking, like a seal drunk on punch. Once I’ve heard it, I’m slightly preoccupied with the thought of hearing it again. First laugh: at the image of the “right man” eventually falling into her lap, “Like: ‘Whoops!'” Second laugh: the thought of asking sex advice from her mother, Janine. Third: remembering Jay McInerney following her round Manhattan like a smell, researching the seven-page New Yorker profile of Sevigny, then 19, where he wrote that she was “the coolest girl in the world”, the phrase that was, in turn, to follow her round for the rest of her life.
