Chloë Sevigny was born on November 18, 1974 in Springfield, Massachusetts as the second child of Janine and Harold; her brother is named Paul, and they are of Polish-American and French-Canadian descent.

Growing up, Sevigny frequently spent her summers at theater camp, and performed in plays run by the YMCA. She went to Darien High School as a teen, and had a job sweeping tennis courts at a country club. Sevigny was a loner during her teenage years, and often experimented with hallucinogens.
Career Beginnings in Modeling
One day in 1992 when she ditched school in Darien to travel to Manhattan, Sevigny was spotted by Sassy magazine fashion editor Andrea Linett. Immediately struck by her style, Linett recruited Sevigny as an intern for her publication. Sevigny went on to model for Sassy, as well as for the X-Girl fashion label. In 1993, she moved from Darien to an apartment in Brooklyn, and worked as a seamstress to make ends meet.
