Casting news can get so tedious, especially when you couldn’t give a crap about the latest “Breaking Hunger Potter Twilight Games” franchise. But a casting update I can get behind is season two of “American Horror Story,” which will be set in an all-new setting and feature an almost all-new cast. Creator Ryan Murphy dished to The Hollywood Reporter that season two will be “fun, sexy and baroque” and set on an East Coast mental institution for the criminally insane. So who can we expect to see onscreen? Keep reading »
God bless Drew Droege, for his hilarious and completely over-the-top impressions of Chloe Sevigny. Here, Chloe directs us on how to throw the best barbecue in the world, which involves “mung bean fricasse” and “sher-bert,” of course. [YouTube]
Hmm. Actress Chloe Sevigny, no stranger to transgender characters (see: “Boys Don’t Cry), says she “cried every day” while getting fitted with her prosthetic penis to play a transgender hit man in her new TV series “Hit & Miss.” The show has Sevigny playing Mia, a pre-op transgender hitman, and the character’s genitalia deeply upset the actress. “I cried every day when they put it on. You know, I’m ample-chested and I have this on. 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,” she admitted to The Daily Telegraph.

Chloe Sevigny: I got reamed out by The Advocate the other day for saying “tranny.” I guess I referred to [my character] as a “tranny” a couple of times and apparently, that’s a no-no in the community. I felt really bad! Nobody had ever told me. Did you know that?
Huffington Post: I just know that now because I think Blake Lively also said that recently …
Chloe Sevigny: Oh, so there’s been some uproar. Reee-donkulous. You can’t say anything anymore.
– Chloe Sevigny is the latest celeb to get spanked (not in a good way) by the Political Correctness Police. Chloe will be playing an Irish transgender assassin in a new miniseries and referred to her character as a “tranny.” However, “tranny” is not a word that the transgender community would like to be known by — although lots of otherwise queer-rights supporting folks, like, Chloe, didn’t get the memo. In fact, I didn’t get the memo until recently, either. You live, you learn.
So, I wish that once Chloe learned that the word she used is not preferred, her attitude had been more gracious and respectful. One hundred years ago, she might have been called a “broad” or a “dame” and some dude might be calling her annoyed response “reee-donkulous”! [Huffington Post]
In honor of the launch of her new collection with Opening Ceremony, Chloe Sevigny opened the doors of her home–and her closet–and gave us a peek into what she wears. Starting off with a vintage shot of herself with Kate Moss, Chloe spares no embarrassing corner–including showing us a custom-made Proenza Schouler dress she wore to the 2010 Met Costume Institute Ball, tore up and has yet to repair. Stars, they’re lazy just like us! [Fashionista]
