As Hollywood is abuzz with debate after Variety's 'Actors on Actors' series featured Kim Kardashian, Chloe Sevigny is quick to come to Kardashian's defense.

AceShowbiz - In a recent edition of Variety's celebrated "Actors on Actors" series, Chloe Sevigny and Kim Kardashian became the focal point of public scrutiny. This unlikely pairing sparked a wave of backlash, specifically targeting Kardashian's inclusion in the series.

Known for her television debut in the iconic "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," Kardashian is navigating an acting career, a path Sevigny has long-travelled with numerous accolades. However, some fans apparently think she was not good enough for the feature.

Sevigny, an Oscar-nominated actress, took to Instagram to defend Kardashian and commend her efforts. She posted a screenshot of their joint Variety cover, writing, "Our chosen career of actor has many forms. Some are rewarded early. Some of us are the journeymen, some have a quieter route, and some a much louder one. And I am always excited to celebrate every kind of actor."

This sentiment was shared amidst a storm of critical comments. Fans compared Sevigny's eloquent reflections on acting with what they perceived as Kardashian's simplistic responses. Questions like "Why are we calling Kim K an actor?" and suggestions that Sevingy "should be pissed" to be paired with the reality star echoed across social media.

Kardashian's acting debut dates back to the 2008 parody film "Disaster Movie," and she has since appeared in projects like "Zoolander: Super Model," "Ocean's 8," and "American Horror Story: Delicate." Despite this, many fans felt her resume didn't justify her being on the same platform as Sevigny, who boasts roles in critically acclaimed films and series like "Boys Don't Cry," "Big Love," and multiple seasons of "American Horror Story."

Variety defended their decision, stating, "We are very proud of the 24 actors who have made Variety's 'Actors on Actors' the No. 1 franchise of its kind." This brings attention to the evolving nature of acting careers today, where traditional and non-traditional paths increasingly intersect.

During the interview, the actresses bonded over shared interests in high fashion, classic Hollywood glam, and their collaborative work with director Ryan Murphy. However, the conversation was also met with ridicule online. Highlights like when Kardashian expressed her love for "Clueless" and "The Notebook" starkly contrasted Sevigny's cinematic influences such as "Tootsie" and "Pretty in Pink," sparking further debate among fans.

Nevertheless, Sevigny's defense of Kardashian highlights an important message: the acting world is diverse, with many ways to achieve success. In celebrating each other's journeys, from reality TV to Oscar-caliber performances, these stars remind us that every path in the entertainment industry holds value.
