QOTD: Wearing A Prosthetic Peen Brought Chloe Sevigny To Tears
To play a male-to-female pre-op transgender assassin in the British miniseries Hit & Miss, Chloe Sevigny had to bring the bulge by wearing an artificial dick. You'd think that since Chloe wrapped her lips around Vincent Gallo's chorizo dick in Brown Bunny, she wouldn't be fazed by doing almost anything for her art. But nope. Not only did it suck having a bunch of hands up in her crotch area, but Chloe tells Culture Magazine (via Page Six) that wearing a prosthetic peen made her feel ugly. It's times like this that I really wish a Hilary Swank as Brandon Teen side-eye GIF existed. If I got paid to wear a plastic vagina all day, I'd be happier than a Kardashian in piss, but not Chloe.
"I cried every day when they put it on. I felt very exposed… 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. Then looking in the mirror... it was weird. I was lonely and I felt really unattractive. I was confused about my desirability -- was I desirable? -- in having put that on, and having men see me with that on.
I think it might be one of the most extreme roles I've done. If people can believe what's-her-name in 'Avatar,’ hopefully they can believe me as a pre-op."
"I felt really unattractive..." Oh Chloe, makes it TOO easy.
Maybe Chloe is trying to say that wearing a rubber dick all day helped her to sort of relate to real pre-op transgendered people who are trapped in their own bodies? Or maybe Chloe is just being Chloe since she's known for using her mouth to produce dumb shit. I'm going with the second one. But I did let out a laugh at "what's-her-name in Avatar."
