Chloë Sevigny on 'American Horror Story': All pleasure, no guilt

If "American Horror Story: Asylum" is your "guilty pleasure," don't tell Chloë Sevigny.

The actress is guest-starring on the series as asylum inmate Shelley, and recently said in a conference interview that she doesn't view the show as such.

"I mean I don’t think I would classify it as that," said Sevigny, who added that she doesn't have a TV. "I think that’s more like the 'Honey Boo Boo,'  and that kind of crap or something."

"I think, why would you even be embarrassed or why would it be something guilty? It’s great television."

Sevigny - who is as well known for roles like "Boys Don't Cry" on the big screen as she is for her small screen projects - revealed that things are only going to get worse for her character. That seems almost inconceivable, given that Shelley has already had her legs amputated by a sinister doctor after she rebuffed his sexual assault.

The actress said she believes audiences are developing more of an appreciation for the creepy on TV.

"I think in general people like to be spooked out," she said. "I think horror movies have always done really well at the box office, and I think it’s kind of a new thing on television.  I think since Hitchcock and whatnot, there haven’t been that many scary shows, but like 'Walking Dead' was huge and now 'American Horror Story,' I think just people are tapping into that."

"American Horror Story: Asylum" airs Wednesday nights on FX.

    I believe that avoiding packaged foods is the first step to lose weight. They can taste excellent, but packaged foods currently have very little nutritional value, making you take in more only to have enough power to get through the day. If you are constantly eating these foods, transferring to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will help you have more power while eating less. Good blog post.

    Chloe is just such an awesome actress and I’ve been a big fan since the beginning of her career. I’m also a fan of AHS and she is doing a great job as Shelley. I’ve got my Hopper from DISH recording the show each week. It’s got 2,000 hours of recording time available so I don’t have to rush and watch what I’ve recorded. I agree with her point of view on the creepy factor on TV. People are really eating it up. My DISH co-worker thinks it’s because it’s a genre that hasn’t really been done to death. I think that’s a fair assessment.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence.

    He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.

    u When we allow God our shepherd to guide us, we have contentment. When we choose to sin, however, we go our own way and cannot blame God for the environment we create for ourselves. Our shepherd knows the "green pastures" and "quiet waters" that will restore us. We will reach these places only by following him obediently. Rebelling against the shepherd's leading is actually rebelling against our own best interests. We must remember this the next time we re tempted to go our own way rather than the shepherd's way.

    u Death casts a frightening shadow over us because we are entirely helpless in its presence. We can struggle with other enemies – pain, suffering, disease, injury – but strength and courage cannot overcome death. It has the final word. Only one person can walk with us through death's dark valley and bring us safely to the other side – the God of life, our shepherd. Because life is uncertain, we should follow this shepherd who offers us eternal comfort.

    u In ancient Near Eastern culture, at a banquet it was customary to anoint a person with fragrant oil as a lotion. Hosts were also expected to protect their guests at all costs. God offers the protection of a host even when enemies surround us. In the final scene of this psalm, we see that believers will dwell with God. God, the perfect shepherd and host, promises to guide and protect us through life to bring us into his house forever.

    You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest; blessings overflow!

    Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home.

    Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!
