Chloe Sevigny Cries Over Wearing Prosthetic Penis
Good evening America. It’s recently come to my attention that actress Chole Sevigny does not like to wear fake penises.
The Australian newspaper, the Daily Telegraph, reported that Sevigny "cried every day" when she had to wear a prosthetic penis for her new television series, "Hit & Miss."
The "Big Love" star will play a pre-op transgender hit man named Mia. But she admitted the fake penis greatly upset her as she started to worry that men would no longer find her attractive.
"I cried every day when they put it on. You know, I’m ample-chested and I have this on," Sevigny said. "I felt very exposed, and it was hard, very hard, having people so close to your personal parts anyway - who you’re not sleeping with - for an hour-and-a-half each day, to put it on."
"Then looking in the mirror... it was weird. I was lonely and I felt really unattractive," the 37-year-old actress added. "I was confused about my desirability - was I desirable? - in having put that on, and having men see me with that on."
The "Gummo" actress went on to say that playing the transgender hit man was one of the most challenging roles she has ever done.
"I think it might be one of the most extreme roles I’ve done, yes. I’ve never really worked with prosthetics. I’ve never done any fantasy or anything weird. Then again, if people can believe what’s her-name in ’Avatar’, hopefully they can believe me as a pre-op," she said.
Sevigny, who has a large gay following, has played in a number of "interesting" characters in the past, including a backwoods teen in "Gummo," and a polygamist in the HBO series "Big Love." She is also known for the controversial scene in Vincent Gallo’s "Brown Bunny" where she performs oral sex on him.
It’s possible Sevigny gained even more of a gay following thanks to Drew Droege -- a comedian who created a number of popular YouTube videos parodying the fashion icon. Watch a hilarious video of Droege poking fun of Sevigny below:
