Chloe Sevigny: “I’d Rather Cut Off My Pinkie Than Google Myself!”

Chloe Sevigny would rather cut of her pinkie than google her own name. She says that the ‘It girl’ label she is often given must pop up when you google her name but she would prefer to ignore it all:

‘It must come up when you Google me or something. I’d rather cut off my pinkie than Google myself!”

Chloe admits she isn’t fond of the label because it makes her sound like she is only around for a short while or as part of a particular clique but she says that isn’t the case at all and she doesn’t feel as though it fits with her:

”The whole ‘It Girl’ thing – I never felt that was the correct label, because I saw that as meaning ‘flash in the pan,’ or ‘socialite,’ or ‘rich girl,’ or ‘druggie girl,’ or ‘model girl,’ even though its origin is Clara Bow, who was the coolest thing ever.”

The actress also believes her career has been hurt by typecasting and she would love to break free of what people think of her:

 ”I may have hurt myself as far as being pigeonholed. It’s always this 90s indie-girl thing. I can’t crawl out of that, at least in Hollywood’s perception of me.”
