Chloë Sevigny Net Worth $10 Million
To begin with, Sevigny grew up in the small town of Darien, Connecticut. Her mother Janine is a primary school teacher whereas her father H. David Sevigny worked in an insurance company. She has an older brother named Paul, who works as a DJ in New York City. She attended Darien High School and was a rather rebellious teenager. She smoked, shaved his head, experimented with drugs and skipped school. She was a depressed teenager and felt bored, and therefore moved to New York City, where she hung out with the skaters in Washington Square Park.
As she left home being 18 years old, she had to work for a living, so Sevigny began her career as a model. She was discovered by a fashion editor of the Sassy magazine who was so impressed by Sevigny’s exceptional clothing style that he took a photo for the magazine. Later Sevigny also worked as an intern for the fashion editors of the magazine. In 1994, she was the face of X-Girl of Sonic Youth. This was followed by several other modelling contracts, including H&M spring and summer collection from Miu Miu, both in 1996.
Concerning her acting career, her film debut was in the independent drama film “Kids” (1995) directed by Larry Clark. Chloe then worked with the film director and screenwriter Harmony Korine creating art film “Gummo” (1997) – Sevigny was in the main cast as well as working as the costume designer. The biggest acting success Sevigny reached was starring alongside Hilary Swank in the independent romantic drama film directed by Kimberly Peirce “Boys Do not Cry” (1999) – for her role of Lana Tisdel she was nominated for both the Oscar and the Golden Globe Awards. In 2003 the film “The Brown Bunny” caused quite a stir as Sevigny had oral sex with Vincent Gallo; several protests were held in the USA. In 2010, she received the supporting role as a fundamentalist Mormon and wife of a polygamist in the television series “Big Love” (2006 – 2011), and for this role Sevigny won the Golden Globe Award. In 2012, Sevigny played Abigail Williams in David Esbjornsons stage play “Abigail”. The same year she also embodied a trans-female assassin in the television series “Horror Story: Asylum”.
Her latest roles on television include the characters created in the series “Bloodline” (2015) and “American Horror Story: Hotel” (2015 – 2016) whereas on the big screen she starred in the films “Black Dog, Red Dog” (2015), “Horror” (2015), “Antibirth” (2016), “Love and Friendship” (2016) and other. Currently, she is working on the set of the upcoming films “The Dinner” (2017) and “The Snowman” (2017), all of which demonstrate that she is in demand by directors, and boost her net worth.
Finally, in the personal life of the actress, Sevigny says that she has experimented sexually – she has had many relationships with men, including being a couple with the actor Harmony Korine from 1995 to 2001. Currently, she claims to be single.
Often took a train into New York City during the weekends to attend rave parties and hang out with Manhattan skateboarders. Sevigny would say to her parents she was staying in Greewich Village with friends, but would actually attend all-night raves and sleep in park-lands when they finished. It was there in New York City that a 19-year-old Sevigny met Harmony Korine and Larry Clark, who later cast her in Kids (1995).

I was very troubled, yes. Me and my brother both - we were troubled and troublemakers.
I think it's just a lot more pressure to make the scenes work when you're doing a film, because when you're doing a series you feel like, I have so many scenes, so many episodes, so if I don't get it exactly right this time, I have another scene later. You feel less pressure.
My first job was in sixth grade, sweeping the clay tennis courts at the yacht club near my house, which I was not a member of. Always had to pay my own rent. But I don't really have any concept of how money works. I don't know how much things cost. Like a BMW. Or a quart of milk. It's embarrassing.
In Hollywood, you can't say anything bad about anybody or everyone is going to attack you. It's like you always have to put on a happy face, be the phony baloney, and I'm so not that. I never was that; I'll never be that. That is part of the business that I don't like.
When I was younger, I was really anti-Hollywood. Now I'm more accepting of it because I'm less of a snob.
It's not what you spend but how you wear it that counts. The key is often to dress up inexpensive basics with accessories. Something like a beautiful designer bag or belt can make everything else look richer and more luxurious.
I was having a very difficult time in school. I was miserable. I was dissatisfied with the town we lived in.
[on her ambitions to act] I mean I'd gone to like summer theatre camp every year growing up and I had always aspired to be an actress. I was actually in some commercials when I was a kid. And then my mother pulled because she thought the world was a little too twisted and she wanted me to be a kid more. And so they hired a professional actress, Mia Kirshner and then two days before shooting they fired her and hired me, so that's someone else's misfortune.
As of late , I am more of a homebody. I like having people over. You can smoke in the apartment. I'm just not into going out so much. The crowd is getting younger and younger.
I hate going to fashion shows. I find them boring.
I've never felt like I had very much to say. Maybe that'll come later in life.
I had an agent once who said that in an audition you have to make the women want to be you and the men want to fuck you. I said, I'm sorry, I can't just go into a room and, like, try to achieve that. That's not my motivation in life.
I'm ambitious, but I'm not ambitious enough to move to Los Angeles.
[on being cast in Kids (1995)] Harmony [Korine] just thought I was this sweet, cute girl and he liked my blonde hair.
I don't want to be a movie star or be famous; I just want to do a few good movies and maybe move some people.
I think it's sexy to be a little bit mysterious.
I had a great family life - I would never want it to look as if it reflected on them. I think I was very bored, and I did just love taking hallucinogens. But I often feel it's because I experimented when I was younger that I have no interest as an adult. I know a lot of adults who didn't, and it's much more dangerous when you start experimenting as an adult. [on drug experimentation as a teenager]
You hear about these actresses who avoid going to fashion shows lest they not be taken seriously. I don't like going because it's such a circus. It's always anticlimactic. But I'm not ashamed to admit it: Fashion is superficial, but I love it.
I knew people would not understand it. It's a shame people write so many things when they haven't seen it. When you see the film, it makes more sense. It's an art film. It should be playing in museums. It's like an Andy Warhol movie. [on the oral sex scene in The Brown Bunny (2003)]
I've always made films that are sort of avant-garde-y or whatever you call it.
I am most proud of my integrity and least proud of my cynicism.
