“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.”

In the article, Chloë answers questions contributed to the issue by 12 friends and colleagues — including (but not limited to) Natasha Lyonne, Kim Gordon, Larry Clark, Whit Stillman, Juergen Teller, Kimbery Peirce and Lissy Trullie (!!!) — and the interview is therefore both quite candid and off the beaten track. Definitely worth a read!
Full article on the Interview website or under the cut.
In the early ’90s, Chloë Sevigny took the Metro-North Railroad into New York City from her home in Darien, Connecticut, and the rest is history. Of course, in reality it’s not that simple. If it were, we’d have a city teeming with Chloës, a film industry powered by tough, risky, shape-shifting actresses preferring meat to paychecks, a street style that actually commands forward stares and backward glances, and a music, art, and fashion scene deserving of America’s greatest metropolis. In many ways, Sevigny’s ascent is framed as a classic New York story: curious, preternaturally cool high school beauty enters the parks, clubs, and gritty side streets of downtown Manhattan, snags an internship at Sassy magazine, gets cast in a low-to-the-ground film about reckless teenage drifters, becomes a mainstay of independent cinema, receives obsessive attention for her idiosyncratic fashion sense, earns an Academy Award nomination, goes on to star in astonishingly disparate film and television roles, designs her own fashion line, and comes to represent the outsider spirit of an entire generation. But that is not the New York story — it is, rather, the lone exception. It’s Chloë’s story, and she told it herself.
This month, the photography book Chloë Sevigny (Rizzoli) charts that rather fantastical, visually ecstatic coming of age — street urchin to star — in pictures, Polaroids, snapshots, magazine covers, fashion ads and editorials, film stills, artworks, and various keepsakes. From shots by legendary fashion photographers to private hang-out moments (I personally love Chloë’s senior prom picture), the book is a wild ride through a well-spent youth. “Rizzoli approached me, and I thought, ‘Why not take this opportunity and show myself the way I want to be seen?’ ” Sevigny explains of its genesis. “I wanted to make it small and intimate, a personal book. And I wanted it to be affordable so kids could go out and buy it. I didn’t want to do a super-high-fashion glossy thing, because that’s not me. I wanted it to really reflect who I am and where I came from.” To celebrate the publication, we asked 12 friends and colleagues to each contribute one question for Sevigny to answer. Honesty is another thing she does very well. -Christopher Bollen
NATASHA LYONNE: I’m curious about your habitual nature — a routine that’s been the same since I met you decades ago and can’t foresee you ever changing deep into a Jetsons future. You always go to church on Ash Wednesday, you always take the subway, and you always go home for the holidays. (Sometimes you do all three of these activities on the same day!) How have these three things informed your understanding of people, your grasp on reality, and staying grounded and sane over the years?
CHLOË SEVIGNY: My parents found tradition and ritual very important, because they were both brought up that way and found comfort in it. They thought it was important for children to be kept on a schedule. So I was just raised in an environment where that’s what you did. There was no question about it. You went home for the holidays, you went to mass on Sunday — no ifs, ands, or buts. That was ingrained in me from a very young age, and I think that’s informed who I am in so many aspects of my life. I crave stability and a schedule and the security that comes along with it. That’s why I gravitate to people whose upbringing was similar. It makes me feel safe. It’s also made me a little obsessive-compulsive in a way. As for public transportation, I think part of the reason I take the subway is because I don’t like having someone else driving. It’s hard for me to be in a cab, because the traffic makes me feel insane. On the subway you’re getting there faster and it’s easier. I’m also frugal. It’s often cheaper to take the subway. And I’m an environmentalist, which my mother instilled in me, so I really believe in public transportation. And finally, I love the proximity to people in the subway. New York is so diverse, and yet you often end up in homogenized places with the same faces, going to the same restaurants. When you’re on the street or in the subway, you’re experiencing more of the diversity of New York.
