Hey, what's been going on with Chloe Sevigny lately? The indie provocateur, who grew up poor in Darien, Connecticut, and at one time drove a VW bus with batik curtains, tells Playboy that, besides having done plays with Topher Grace back at summer theater camp, she is turned on by facial hair, and the back-and-forth of aggressive hair-pulling.

The thirty-six-year-old actress, who first started charming us in Kids, has carved out quite a niche for herself in the indieopolis, appearing in such controversial films as Dogville, American Psycho, and the Vincent Gallo headscratcher, The Brown Bunny. The Polish-French Canadian sometime fashion designer also reveals that she was a depressed, nose-pierced teenager who later was to be anointed "the coolest girl in the world" by Jay McInerney. (I won't say it.)

Sevigny, who is in her final season of that "It's good to be king" Bill Paxton vehicle, HBO's Big Love, has a new quirky black comedy with Jena Malone, The Wait, due in 2011. I'm there.
