Chloe Sevigny Net Worth $8 Million
After sighting the young Sevigny on the roads of New York, where she repeatedly attracted notice for her different, idiosyncratic fashion sense, the yuppie author was moved to dedicate a seven-page New Yorker disperse to her, in the class of which he anointed her with said title. Whether or not she was “It,” Sevigny did appreciate a rudimentary serving of celebrity: during the time, she was an intern at Sassy magazine, where she had been applied after magazine writers seen her and used her as a model because of their publication. So, before her film career began, Sevigny was maybe the country’s other most famous intern.
Raised in the wealthy, conservative suburb of Darien, Connecticut in 1974, Sevigny began hanging out in New York as a teen. After her first acknowledgement from Sassy and McInerney, she made her screen debut in “Larry Clark’s Kids”.
Often took a train into New York City during the weekends to attend rave parties and hang out with Manhattan skateboarders. Sevigny would say to her parents she was staying in Greewich Village with friends, but would actually attend all-night raves and sleep in park-lands when they finished. It was there in New York City that a 19-year-old Sevigny met Harmony Korine and Larry Clark, who later cast her in Kids (1995).

Chloë Stevens Sevigny Quotes
I was very troubled, yes. Me and my brother both - we were troubled and troublemakers.
I think it's just a lot more pressure to make the scenes work when you're doing a film, because when you're doing a series you feel like, I have so many scenes, so many episodes, so if I don't get it exactly right this time, I have another scene later. You feel less pressure.
My first job was in sixth grade, sweeping the clay tennis courts at the yacht club near my house, which I was not a member of. Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works. I don't know how much things cost. Like a BMW. Or a quart of milk. It's embarrassing.
In Hollywood, you can't say anything bad about anybody or everyone is going to attack you. It's like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I'm so not that. I never was that; I'll never be that. That is part of the business that I don't like.
When I was younger, I was really anti-Hollywood. Now I'm more accepting of it because I'm less of a snob.
It's not what you spend but how you wear it that counts. The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious.
I was having a very difficult time in school. I was miserable. I was dissatisfied with the town we lived in.
[on her ambitions to act] I mean I'd gone to like summer theatre camp every year growing up and I had always aspired to be an actress. I was actually in some commercials when I was a kid. And then my mother pulled because she thought the world was a little too twisted and she wanted me to be a kid more. And so they hired a professional actress, Mia Kirshner and then two days before shooting they fired her and hired me, so that's someone else's misfortune.
As of late , I am more of a homebody. I like having people over. You can smoke in the apartment. I'm just not into going out so much. The crowd is getting younger and younger.
I hate going to fashion shows. I find them boring.
I've never felt like I had very much to say. Maybe that'll come later in life.
I had an agent once who said that in an audition you have to make the women want to be you and the men want to fuck you. I said, I'm sorry, I can't just go into a room and, like, try to achieve that. That's not my motivation in life.
I'm ambitious, but I'm not ambitious enough to move to Los Angeles.
[on being cast in Kids (1995)] Harmony [Korine] just thought I was this sweet, cute girl and he liked my blonde hair.
I don't want to be a movie star or be famous; I just want to do a few good movies and maybe move some people.
I think it's sexy to be a little bit mysterious.
I had a great family life - I would never want it to look as if it reflected on them. I think I was very bored, and I did just love taking hallucinogens. But I often feel it's because I experimented when I was younger that I have no interest as an adult. I know a lot of adults who didn't, and it's much more dangerous when you start experimenting as an adult. [on drug experimentation as a teenager]
You hear about these actresses who avoid going to fashion shows lest they not be taken seriously. I don't like going because it's such a circus. It's always anticlimactic. But I'm not ashamed to admit it: Fashion is superficial, but I love it.
I knew people would not understand it. It's a shame people write so many things when they haven't seen it. When you see the film, it makes more sense. It's an art film. It should be playing in museums. It's like an Andy Warhol movie. [on the oral sex scene in The Brown Bunny (2003)]
I've always made films that are sort of avant-garde-y or whatever you call it.
I am most proud of my integrity and least proud of my cynicism.
