When “CLO-EH” Met Chloe

Actor/writer Drew Droege’s “Chloe” videos on YouTube are key. There are certain people (me) in the Manhunt offices (me) who tend to watch them over and over (me, to a sickening extent). For the uninitiated, Droege’s not even playing the actual Chloe Sevigny. His Chloe is more of an original character skewering upper class hipster culture. And it’s perfection.

However, we were nervous for him when we read that Drew had finally met eccentric actress Sevigny in person. Did she hit him with her wrist hat? Did she repeal all of his beaujolais nouveau? No! It sounds like it was quite a lovely meeting:

After realizing that she wasn’t going to throw her cocktail in my face, or punch me in the asshole, or simply ask, “Why are you doing this to me?” it came to my attention that I really like this person. My friend Darryl approached us and took a picture. And then I said, “I have to go, but it was so great to meet you.” I needed to keep it brief, so that I didn’t come off like a skin-wearing murderer or, worse, a starfucker. And she grabbed me by the back of the head and kissed me four times on the face. We never talked about my videos, which, I think, is a good thing. In five minutes, we traded mountains of nonverbal communication, and I think we were both a little relieved.

Aw, they’re friends! Or friendly. Like he said, she didn’t punch him in the asshole. It wasn’t that kind of party.
