Chloe Sevigny Often Gets Offered Masculine Roles

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories:

Chloe SevignyChloe Sevigny isn't "offended" she often gets asked to play masculine roles.

The Oscar-nominated actress has previously portrayed a butch-looking gay woman in If These Walls Could Talk 2 and can next be seen as a transgender hit-woman in Hit & Miss, but understands why she gets offered the roles because she has a manly face.

"I do feel like I have some masculine features. I've seen myself on screen and thought that I do look quite masculine. So I could see why they would think of me for this part. I wasn't offended."

Despite the unusual premise of the new British drama, Chloe does not believe it will be what they expected because it does not play up the transsexual aspect: "It's very lyrical, very poetic. It doesn't lean to camp in any way, shape or form. There's heightened realism here and there. But I think people are gonna be really surprised. They're gonna hear about this transsexual, transgender hit-woman ad they're gonna think it's one thing - and by the end of the first episode they'll realize this is not at all what they expected."
