Chloë Sevigny – an American actress with a storied fourteen-year career. Sevigny courted controversy with her very first film, the Larry Clark movie Kids, which depicted underage (even pre-teen) sexuality in a remarkably frank and non-judgemental fashion. Sevigny's performance was lauded and started her on a remarkably successful career that also encompassed the fashion world. Her appearance in the 1999 film Boys Don't Cry saw her winning numerous awards and nominated for even more, including an Oscar and a Golden Globe. Her appearance in the Vincent Gallo film The Brown Bunny threatened to sabotage her entire career due to a scene of graphic, unsimulated sex, yet she has recovered and has a successful career on the HBO TV series Big Love.
