“Lizzie” Star Chloë Sevigny Covers Town & Country’s August Issue

“Lizzie” star Chloë Sevigny covers the August 2018 issue of Town & Country magazine photographed by Tina Barney and styled by Nicoletta Santoro.

 

 

On what she wanted to convey for the infamous murder scene in Lizzie: “She’s so constrained in the whole movie that I really wanted it to be cathartic, for her and the audience. …I was just thinking about all of the rage women have. She’s very much smashing the patriarchy.”

On playing historical New England bag girl characters: “I was born in Massachusetts, and I’ve been drawn to those characters… There’s a whole contemporary interest in witches. I’ve written a short film that I’m going to begin in the next couple of months about these women and the powers they claim to have.”

On the challenges of directing a film: “I had to be the one to ask Kristen Stewart [to be in the movie], and I had to pursue her. That’s what difficult about producing – having to be pushy is hard for me.”

On not being taken seriously as an actress: “People should consider the variety of characters I’ve played, the different roles, and – for lack of a better word – the craft. I don’t think people recognize me as being a good actress. Some of them think I’m just into fashion.”

On creating her own opportunity for work: “I’m a workaholic, so I’m always doing a lot. For Lizzie, it was the character and the writer of the story we wanted to tell together. I also thought it could be successful, and I’ve never had a real starring role in a movie, so I decided to create one for myself.”

On why she finally joined Instagram: “There were all these fakes accounts on there, and I felt that if someone’s going to portray me, it might as well be me.”
