Sevigny: J-Law is too crass

Chloë Sevigny thinks Angelina Jolie is “a great movie star” but doesn’t seem to think the same of Jennifer Lawrence.

The 40-year-old actress gave her opinion on some of her peers to the latest issue of V Magazine. And despite the Hunger Games actress being a favourite among many, Chloë doesn’t agree.

“I love when a movie star is a great movie star. I think Angelina Jolie is a great movie star. I don't think I can be that, or just be an actor. I don't think I have the charisma. Which is probably why I never reached another level,” she admitted. “Jennifer Lawrence I find annoying. Too crass.”

During her career, Chloë has appeared in films including Boys Don’t Cry, Zodiac and Lovelace. The star has never been afraid of speaking her mind, and during the interview, she discussed how the industry seems to prefer big personalities more than ever.

“So much is about marketing and selling the product. They'll have a really peppy funny girl on the talk show rounds, and everybody adores her and loves her and wants to be her or f**k her, and then so many more people want to watch the movie or TV show,” she continued. “I understand that star quality, how much value that carries."

While Academy Award winner Jennifer fits that description perfectly, Chloë isn’t a fan. But one actress she does have time for is Emma Stone.

“I like Emma Stone. Whenever she's herself, she's really cute," she smiled.

As well as her acting, Chloë has also had a successful modelling career and is known as much for her eclectic fashion sense as her movie roles.
