The Art of the Chloë Sevigny Parody

Chloë Sevigny is an easy actress to hate. Throughout her career, the media has tried to sell her as a professional cool girl—someone who exists in a perpetual state of “over it” and makes you feel tragically unhip by comparison. Her acting has always been secondary to her indie ice queen persona, which is a shame because she’s actually pretty good at it. At this point though, it’s safe to say that she’s destined to be better-known for being herself rather than anyone she pretends to be onscreen.

Making fun of Sevigny and her downtown ‘It girl’ image may seem too obvious, but comedian Drew Droege has managed to do a brilliant job of it with his hilarious online incarnation of the actress. If you’re not familiar with his YouTube videos, I suggest starting with “Summer” and “Resolutions” and ending with the latest masterpiece, “Oscars”. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never heard Sevigny actually talk. Just imagine Droege is making fun of a pretentious hipster because it’s essentially the same thing. TC mark

      Bad TIm&Eric videos? Woah dude, that's some meta shit…

    making fun of spoiled famous rich people for being spoiled famous rich people is so two-thousand and late. chloe has more good roles than you can shake a stick at.

    the one thing he does get right is the way she holds herself in that slumped, crossed-arm-shoulders-up way

    These comments have made me feel better about seemingly being the only person ever who doesn't find these funny at all. I love Chloe, both as an actress and a personality, but good comedy would find more clever elements of her persona to parody than he does.

      Like how she looks real sleepy all the time. Would watch a series of videos where Chloe Sevigny's catchphrase is, “I need to take a nap.” And Harmony Korinne and Vincent Gallo just get SOOOOOOOOOOO grumpy.

  • brittany_borghi

    I only see Jenna Mulroney when I watch these.

  • Brandon

    i find it hard to dislike chloe. she was in “kids”, come on now-what have you done with your life?

    it's much easier to make fun of zooey deschanel, that broad is insufferable.

  • Skyler
