Chloe Sevigny Tries to Give Her Publicist a Heart Attack, Declares ‘Big Love’ Awful

Alex Blagg / March 26, 2010

Has Katherine Heigl been coaching Chloe Sevigny on the art of media interviews? Sevigny seemed to pull a page directly from the Grey’s Anatomy actress’ Big Book of Unfortunate Quote-Spewing during a recent interview with The Onion, when she declared that her HBO series Big Love has been “awful” lately.

According to Sevigny, who plays polygamist wife Nicki Grant on the show,  “

It was awful this season, as far as I’m concerned. I’m not allowed to say that! [Gasps.] It was very telenovela. I feel like it kind of got away from itself. The whole political campaign seemed to me very far-fetched. I mean, I love the show, I love my character, I love the writing, but I felt like they were really pushing it this last season.”

And because Sevigny’s mouth is apparently big enough to accommodate both feet, she went on to offer this little tidbit: 

Sevigny: I think it was a very complicated season for [Niki Grant]. And you know, the whole relationship with the daughter, and then [Grant’s ex-husband] J.J. [Laughs.] There’s always so much going on.

The Onion: Like how J.J.’s trying to inject her with an incest baby?

Sevigny: Oh God, I know. Oh, God. It’s too much. It’s too much. But I hope the fans will stick with us and tune in next year. There’s a lot of people who really love this season, surprisingly. God, I’m going to get in so much trouble.

You have to feel bad for the custodial crew over at HBO headquarters. They’re going to have a busy weekend, trying to clean up the mess from all those executives’ heads exploding.
