Sevigny made her film debut with a leading role in the controversial film Kids (1995), written by Harmony Korine, which led to an Independent Spirit Award nomination for her performance. A long line of roles in generally well-received independent and often avant-garde films throughout the decade established Sevigny's reputation as "Queen of the Indies." In 1999, Sevigny won eight acting awards and gained serious critical and commercial recognition for her role as Lana Tisdel in Boys Don't Cry, earning her Academy Award and Golden Globe nominations for Best Supporting Actress. Sevigny continued acting in mostly independent art house films, such as American Psycho (2000), Party Monster (2003), and Dogville (2003). Her role in the art house film The Brown Bunny (2003) caused significant controversy because of a scene in which she performs unsimulated fellatio. Her films since then have included Melinda and Melinda (2004), Manderlay (2005), and Zodiac (2007).
From 2006 to 2011, Sevigny played a leading role in the HBO television series Big Love, for which she won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actress in 2010. She then appeared in several television projects, including a lead role in Hit & Miss (2012), and recurring roles on American Horror Story: Asylum (2012–2013), American Horror Story: Hotel (2015–2016), and Portlandia. Sevigny has two Off-Broadway theatre credits, and has starred in several music videos. She has also designed several wardrobe collections, most recently with Manhattan's Opening Ceremony boutique.
Sevigny owned an apartment in Manhattan's East Village, which she purchased for $1.2 million in 2006 and sold in March 2013 for $1.85 million. In October 2013, after selling her East Village apartment, she purchased a "classic six" apartment residence, overlooking Prospect Park in Park Slope, Brooklyn for $2 million.
Sevigny's father died when she was in her early 20s, and she stated in a 2006 interview that she came from a "close-knit" family, that she speaks to her mother every day, and that her brother lives three blocks away from her apartment. She suffers from scoliosis, diagnosed when she was a child, though she never received any surgical treatment. She has stated that she practices yoga for relief from the pain caused by the spinal deformity. She is a practicing Roman Catholic, although she admits that she rebelled against religion as a teenager. She said she began attending church services again after playing a Satan-worshipping teenage murderer in a 1998 Off-Broadway production of Hazelwood Junior High, claiming that she became "really disturbed" and "started having nightmares and thinking horrible things".
Sevigny has had various relationships with men, though in 2006 she stated to the New York Post Gossip column: "I've questioned issues of gender and sexuality since I was a teenager, and I did some experimenting." In a later interview, she stated that she "wouldn't call herself bisexual", and that she could never see herself in a relationship with a woman. Nonetheless, she has been popular with the gay community throughout her career. Following her relationship with Harmony Korine, which ended in the late 1990s, Sevigny dated British musician Jarvis Cocker, and later Matt McAuley, a member of the noise-rock band A.R.E. Weapons. Sevigny and McAuley ended their relationship in early 2008, after being together for nearly eight years.
In a 2009 interview, Sevigny reflected on her career, and said she was content with the level of stardom she had maintained: "When I was in my early 20s, I went out with a British pop star, Jarvis Cocker; of course, pop stars have much more celebrity, I think, than actors even. They're really hunted by their fans much more. I remember driving around these remote towns in Wales and kids running after us in the street. I was like, 'This is horrible!' And I saw the effect it had on him, and that's when I decided I never wanted to be a celebrity at that level, and I think that's why I've chosen to do the work that I do and just kind of work with directors that I love and try and do work that means something to me."
