Chloe Sevigny: ‘I thought I’d have to give birth alone. during pandemic.. I was terrified’



H

ollywood star  Chloe Sevigny said she had “a super-heightened anxiety attack” at the thought of giving birth alone because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The actress, 46, had her  first child, a boy called Vanja,  in May. 

She told ES Magazine how “stressful” it was when she thought her fiancé Sinisa Mackovic and her doula were not going to be there. 

She said: “I had like one whole day of really feeling sorry for myself, crying all day and having a super-heightened anxiety attack at the thought of being alone in the room. I posted something about how I was thinking about all the other mothers out there.  

“All these women were like, ‘The father of my child wasn’t there: he was at war.’ So many women and all these stories of women put into perspective how privileged I was.”

Fortunately, the rules were  changed the day before she gave birth. Sevigny said her luck with her son had held since: “He’s barely ever cried.”

The actress was filming an HBO series, We Are Who We Are, while she was pregnant but did not tell anyone on the set.

She said: “I’d had a few situations before when I was younger [with previous partners] when it didn’t work out.

“I didn’t tell anyone on the cast so it was hard to be alone and not really be able to confide in anyone except a few people on production and PAs who had to know for insurance purposes. I just didn’t want to create any unnecessary drama.”

The 46-year-old, who has also directed three short films, said she wanted to make a full-length feature at some point.

She said: “I do just need to come up with an idea or find something that’s not already spoken for.  

“There have been a few books that I’ve been interested in, but they are always on option. I’d like to make something like an ET.”
