Chloe Sevigny has said she felt insecure wearing a prosthetic penis on the set of the UK drama Hit & Miss.

Hit & Miss, the first original series commissioned by recently-launched satellite channel Sky Atlantic in Britain, had its US premiere on DIRECTV's Audience Network on Wednesday, July 11.

The 37-year-old Sevigny plays Mia in the 6-episode series from creator Paul Abbott (Shameless, State of Play). Mia finds out she fathered a son eleven years earlier and her former girlfriend is dying from cancer.

In an interview with gay glossy Out, Sevigny said she is not liked in Hollywood.

“Hollywood does not know what to do with me,” she said. “They do not like me. That's why I end up in these seemingly difficult movies. That's what is offered to me, and I need to make a living.”

She added that she felt insecure filming nude scenes while wearing a prosthetic penis.

“Being around the men on set, being naked, and having that on, I just felt insecure and uncomfortable. Plus the process to put it on was very involved. I had to shave myself, it's glued on, painted, like a prosthetic. It's not fun to have someone right up in your private parts,” she said.

“[I]t's not gratuitous,” she offered. “It shouldn't be a show about a fucking penis.”
