Chloe Sevigny Hates Interviews

Chloe Sevigny recently sat down for an interview with Net-a-Porter's The Edit. Here are some of the highlights:

On getting interviewed:
“I get so bored. I tend to speak out of turn and get myself in trouble, because I’ve bored myself. It depends where I am in my cycle.” 

On Kim Gordon, a friend of 20 years:
"[She] is someone I always want to impress and who is still so punk and so cool. She writes to me on my birthday and says, ‘I’m so proud of you’. When she says those things to me, I cry.”

On fashion vs style:
“I don’t love fashion. I have a lot of issues with the fashion industry and its beauty ideals. But I love style...I’m always on the quest for the perfect kilt skirt and the perfect pair of jeans. I think every woman is.”

On collaborating with NYC brand Opening Ceremony:
 “As an actress, you’re for hire; a cog in the wheel. It was nice to have a creative outlet that I had control over...But I would never launch my own label. It’s too much work.”

On Instagram and selfies:
“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 anymore; just teenagers dressing as one.”

On being held to a different standard:
“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. It’s impossible for me to go somewhere and not be judged.”
