Chloe Sevigny Says Self-Promotion on Instagram is 'Disgusting'

Chloe Sevigny poses for the cover of The Edit‘s latest issue, available now.

Here is what the 42-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On why she doesn’t post outfit selfies on Instagram: “I’m 42 and I’m already famous – why would I self-promote myself like that? It’s disgusting… I’m very confused by millennials. When I was a teenager, your wardrobe identified who you were. There aren’t any tribes any more. Teenagers just dressing as one.”

On receiving criticism from the press: “I think it’s inspiring for girls to see women who are not conventional beauties, women who have been judged. If Rihanna was in [my outfit], the tabloids would love it. I don’t court mainstream success, so they have a hard time understanding me. [I stopped going to fashion shows] because of this weird pressure to have ‘a look’. I don’t feel it [censure] all the time. But it’s impossible for me to go somewhere and not be judged.”

On her place in the film industry: “I’ve been around for a long time; people find authenticity in me. Within the film community, I have respect.”
