Chloe Sevigny had always liked doing theater, but had never viewed acting as a way to make a living. She quite literally stumbled into a modeling career when she was spotted on the street by an editor for Sassy Magazine. She began modeling for the magazine, which led to other modeling jobs, and appearances in various music videos. After stumbling across budding director, Harmony Korine, in Washington Square Park, she made her debut in his film, "Kids". Her work in the very controversial film was critically-acclaimed, and she went on to appear in a range of projects over the next few years including, "Gummo", "Palmetto", "The Last Days of Disco", "Boys Don't Cry", (for which she received an Oscar nomination), "American Psycho", "If These Walls Could Talk 2", "Dogville", and "The Brown Bunny". She became a household name during her five seasons on the hit show, "Big Love". In addition to her acting work, she is also a very well-respected fashion designer, and has released collections in the US and Europe, as well as designing clothes for various film projects. Though she has been working successfully since her late teens, she has seemed to largely eschew much of the Hollywood starlet hype. Her one concession to her success was the 2006 purchase of a $1.2 million apartment in Manhattan. This month she sold it.
Chloe Sevigny's house is a one-bedroom ground floor co-op apartment in the East Village. The house is described as "womb-like", due to its low ceiling and relative lack of sunlight. However, Chloe Sevigny's house has some very nice touches that rather make up for the fact that it is basically a very, very nice basement apartment. The house sports a very large bedroom and living room, with a separate dining space, and an office off of the living room. There are multiple closets, and space for a washer and dryer. The best parts of Chloe Sevigny's house are the front and back patios. The back patio is especially attractive, and can be accessed from the dining room. She sold the apartment for $1.85 million, so apparently her career luck extends to real estate, as well.
