Chloe Sevigny Talks Playing a Transsexual with 'Out' Magazine

Chloe Sevigny Talks Playing a Transsexual with 'Out' Magazine

Chloe Sevigny shows off her toned and tough sides on the cover of Out magazine’s August 2012 issue.

Here’s what the 37-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On her show Hit & Miss, where she plays a transsexual hitman: “Who doesn’t love a challenge? My manager called me and said, ‘I got some scripts today, and they’re f**king crazy. I’ve never read anything like them, and I kinda think you’re going to be into it,’ A little way into reading the first script, I knew I was in.”

On doing the role justice: “I was worried people would be angry that they didn’t cast a real person who was transitioning, 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.”

On her status in Hollywood: “Hollywood does not know what to do with me. They do not like me. That’s why I end up in these seemingly difficult movies. That’s what is offered to me, and I need to make a living.”

    Fantastic last answer: “Hollywood doesn’t know what to do with me.”

    She is a great talent and marginally underrated. Hollywood sucks.

    I’ve watch all the episode, she was AMAZING! That show is amazing! She was always known as indie actress. That’s what separate her from the rest. Can’t wait for season 2!!

    I love her! She’s an exceptionally brave actress! And I still remember how much cr*p she got in the past for that from people. But that’s exactly what I like about her. That she is brave and unique.

    “….That’s why I end up in these seemingly difficult movies. That’s what is offered to me, and I need to make a living.” Awww poor thing you need to make a living by being paid million of dollars….and I thought that sweating my ass off in the factory where I work was difficult and tiring……..shut up please. I don’t have anything against Chloe, she’s a good actress but I can’t read stuff like that, it’ insulting.

    @ale: actors do not earn millions on indie films, which is what she mostly makes. she also works hard as a designer. she is a creative and talented person. im a fan
