Chloe Sevigny gave an interview with V Magazine and inside, she praised Angelina Jolie, shaded Jennifer Lawrence and talked about her movie with Vincent Gallo, Brown Bunny.
On the topic of marketing and movie stars, she said, “So much is about marketing and selling the product. They’ll have a really preppy funny girl on the talk show rounds, and everybody adores her and loves her and wants to be her or f**k her, and then so many more people want to watch the movie or TV show.”
She continued, “I understand that star quality, how much value that carries. I love when a movie star is a great movie star. I think Angelina Jolie is a great movie star. I don’t think I can be that, or just be an actor. I don’t think I have the charisma. Which is probably why I never reached another level. I like Emma Stone. Whenever she’s herself, she’s really cute. Jennifer Lawrence I find annoying. Too crass.”
On the subject of Vincent Gallo and Brown Bunny, she said, “When Brown Bunny came out, there was a real puritanical press onslaught. They dragged me over the coals. Doing something transgressive like that, it was kind of inevitable, starting off with Kids. I love Vincent as an artist. We’re not friends anymore, which kind of makes me sad. Maybe we will be again one day. Now that I’m getting old, though, it’s hard to see people you haven’t seen in a while because everybody ages so much and I don’t want him to see me as older. But yeah, other than that, people love to say that snide, ‘She’s so indie, cooler than cool’ stuff. I don’t take offense to any of it.”
I’m not sure if she can really call anyone out for being crass, considering the fact that she gave Gallo a beej in their movie. I’d say that was pretty crass, but that’s just me. What are your thoughts on the matter?
