Chloe Sevigny

  1. Drew Barrymore, Scream, 1996.      At first, director wanted Drew as his heroine - and Sevigny, the new girl on the block from Kids, as the first victim of the Munch-masked serial killer. Then. Barrymore wisely suggested it would be a bigger shock for the audience if she were Casey Becker… and died early. It had worked well for Janet Leigh in Psycho… 
  2. Hilary Swank, Boys Don’t Cry, 1998.       With so many actresses scared of portraying the life and 1993 murder of a young transgender man called Brandon Teena, auteur Kimberly Pierce almost dropped plans for a featiure version of  her short film. More willing candidates for Brandon included Alison Folland, Lisa Jakub, Katherine Moennig (the 2004-2009  L Word star) and Chloe Sevigny (who played Lana).  And Alicia Goranson, who won Candace, based on Lisa Lambert, who was murdered alonbgside Brandon.  Hilary won a new friend.  Called Oscar.
  3. Kate Hudson, Almost Famous, 2000.     Looking for his Penny Lane groupie (based on Pennie Trumble, aka Pennie Lane), in his semi- autobiographical look back to his Rolling Stone reporter “daze,” Cameron Crowe saw all of LA’s bright young things… Sevigny, Neve Campbell, Claire Danes, Kirsten Dunst, Jenna Elfman, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Anne Heche, Rose McGowan, Bridget Moynahan, Brittany Murphy, Christina Ricci, Rebecca Romijn, Mena Suvari.   Next? Uma Thurman passed and the winner, Sarah Polley, split. (Silly girls).  Crowe then chose Kate because “she seemed more like a free spirit.”  But, but, but… Sevigny was the freest spirt in all Hollywood! 
  4. Selma Blair, Legally Blonde, 2001.    Chloë’s brother (a bar-owner and DJ) wouldn’t talk to her for three weeks on hearing she’d rejected $500,000t o be Vivian Kensington in in the far from official sequel to Clueless,1994.  As Chloe once declared: “I’m most proud of my integrity.”e.
  5. Amy Adams, Catch Me If You Can, 2002.      So many directors came and went... Cameron Crowe, David Fincher... Lasse Hallstroim talked to Chole about being Frank’s fiancee... .
  6. Jennifer Garner, Catch Me If You Can, 2002.       … while director Gore Verbinksi voted for her as the hooker sharing a great scene with Frank – aka Leonardo DiCaprio when   Steven Spielberg elected  Miss Alias asCheryl Ann,
  7. Julia Stiles, Mona Lisa Smile, 2003.       To prepare for their roles, the leads went through a fortnight in a Bryn Mawrish (or Mawrich) finishing school.
  8. Kerry Washington, Mr & Mrs Smith, 2005.        Add Chloë to the assassin’s body count of 43 kills.
  9. Lauren Ambrose, Where The Wild Things Are, 2005.       Sevigny and Michelle Williams were seen (and heard) for the voice of KW - “an eight-foot-tall Neanderthal, that looks just like me,” said Ambrose. Catherine O’Hara and the great James Gandolfini voiced other grouchy things… Spike Jonze started shooting in 2005. Warner Bros hated the non-kidstuff result (exactly why Disney gave up on Maurice Sendak’s book in the 80s) and rejigged the film and the release for four years!
  10. Jessica Biel, Hitchcock, 2012.    Hitchcock’s back in business! With two films headlined by UK actors (Anthony Hopkins, Toby Jones) in bad impressions and fat suits. This is the second one - Hopkins making Psycho. And telling Janet Leigh: “You can call me Hitch. Hold the cock.” As Leigh was just two years older than  the dowdier Vera Miles, most actresses were up for either role: Diana Agron, Camilla Belle, Abby Cornish, Emilie de Ravin, Natalie Dormer, Sarah Gadon, Ashley Greene, January Jones, Kate Mara, Brit Marling, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Evan Rachel Wood.  But Chloe was mainly seen for Vera.
  11. Chloe Bridges, The Final Girls, 2014. Chloe was keen on Paula but was making another movie.  Had to be better than this, fllpped-over Purple Rose Of Cairo. Imagine Mia Farrow entering the actual film - and it’s a slasher movie starring her (dead) mother, joining her pals stuck in scary 80s action. They wanted  to go home.  So did I.
