Chloe Sevigny likes Instagram trolls’ pictures
Chloe Sevigny deals with Instagram trolls by liking a picture on their accounts.
The ‘American Horror Story’ actress has a social media following of nearly 570,000 and though not all the comments she receives on the photos she shares are positive, she has found a clever strategy to keep haters at bay.
She told Net-a-Porter’s The Edit magazine: "I go onto their profile after they have said something mean and I ‘like’ a picture.
"It humanises me. And I’ve actually had people then apologise for what they said."
The 42-year-old actress created her own Insta-series to show "alternative beauty ideals" as she finds it "inspiring to see women who are not conventional beauties who have been judged".
She said: "If Rihanna was in my outfit, the tabloids would love it. I don’t court mainstream success so they have a hard time understanding me.
"It’s impossible for me to go somewhere and not be judged. We are in a culture of darkness where everybody is a critic.
"Susan Sarandon and Katy Perry get s**t from liberals and conservatives. And I’m horrified at the insults that Lena Dunham has to put up with."
The outspoken actress also condemns self-promotion and believes social media "white-washes" everything.
She said: "I’m 42 and I’m already famous – why would I self-promote myself like that? It’s disgusting.
"I’m very confused by millennials. When I was a teenager, your wardrobe identified who you were. There aren’t any tribes anymore; just teenagers dressing as one."
Although starring in a number of successful films and TV shows, Chloe has yet to star in big-budget movie but she said she would love to be part of something that makes an impact.
She said: "I’d love to be part of a movie that made a big impact. I compromised, once, to get a pay check to help my mom with a mortgage. But I’ve been able to maintain my integrity."
