Chloe Sevigny Apologizes for Bad Mouthing her Cash Cow, HBO's 'Big Love'

Chloe Sevigny Apologizes for Bad Mouthing her Cash Cow, HBO's 'Big Love'

No one plays lesbian better than Chloe Sevigny! But the actress called the last season of "Big Love" "awful" and went on the slam the HBO series. Sevigny then told Entertainment Weekly that she was tired during that interview and was being provoked. "I feel like what I said was taken out of context, and the [reporter] I was speaking to was provoking me. I was in Austin and really exhausted and doing a press junket and I think I just... I wasn't thinking about what I was saying...maybe it did come out too harsh," said Sevigny.

Chloe Sevigny has played at least a million lesbian characters, but the actress may not know when to stay quiet.

Sevigny said that the latest season of Big Love was "awful," "terrible," and yes, "over the top."

In an interview Friday with The Onion's AV Club, Chloe was asked about last season's shenanigans on the hit HBO series.

"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 farfetched." Chloe replied.

"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," she added.

"Me and the girls [Jeanne Tripplehorn and Ginnifer Goodwin] definitely were not very happy with where it was going-or more kind of, 'We really hope it's going to work. It seems like they're really pushing it.' I think next season, they're going to go back to more just the family. I think that the stuff with Ben and Lois and that stuff was really great in Mexico, but... [Laughs.]"

Suddenly, Sevigny must have found herself in trouble for badmouthing a show that pays her bills, so the actress quickly retracted her words. In order to clear the wreckage and chaos, Sevigny told Entertainment Weekly that she was tired during that interview and was being provoked.

"I feel like what I said was taken out of context, and the [reporter] I was speaking to was provoking me. I was in Austin [at the SXSW festival] and really exhausted and doing a press junket and I think I just... I wasn't thinking about what I was saying. You know, after a day of junkets sometimes things slip out that you don't mean, and I obviously didn't mean what I said in any way, shape, or form. I love being on the show. I have nothing but respect and admiration for our writers and everybody involved with the show. It's been the greatest opportunity of my lifetime so far - the best role I've ever played, the best part I've ever had the opportunity to portray. So I love the show. I think it's the greatest show on television. I think it's the weirdest show. I think it is very complex and the content is amazing and it's just very ironic that this statement would come out and blow so out of control. Because I feel absolutely the opposite," said Sevigny.

"Maybe it did come out too harsh," she added.

Chloe went on to say that she personally apologizes to the writers, creators and the cast. 

We forgive you Chloe!
