Natasha Lyonne Talks Struggle With Addiction & How Chloe Sevigny Helped Her Stay Sober

Natasha Lyonne strikes a dreamy pose on the cover of Modern Luxury’s July LA Confidential cover!

Here’s what the 40-year-old Russian Doll and Orange Is the New Black actress had to share with the mag:

On having her first kiss on-camera at age 12: “I didn’t understand why that felt weird then, but now I look back and think something was very, very off. By mere virtue of the fact that I was wearing tight pants in the scene, it meant, oh, of course, you’ll be making out with somebody. At no point was there a thought of, ‘Hey, kid, do you actually want to do this?’”

On her struggle with addiction: “That period does kind of contextualize a lot of things in terms of my point of view today and the way I had to reconfigure myself in order to become a member of the living.”

On how Chloe Sevigny helped her stay sober: “One consistent figure who stood with me through the ‘before’ chapter. In my early days of getting clean, Chloe would show up in an oversize Morrissey T-shirt just to make sure I would leave the house. We’d go to the beach. She’d peel off into a bikini. I’d be in eight layers of black, smoking a cigarette going, ‘I’m outside in sunlight, OK? What more do you want from me?’”

On her relationship with Fred Armisen:Fred’s a man of routine and I want music blaring late into the night and a hand out the window while driving, but it works.”
