An hour before the premiere of her new film, "Lying," at the Cannes International Film Festival, Chloe Sevigny is sprawled on a pillow-strewn wooden bench.

It's been a whirlwind year for the 32-year-old, who finished filming season one of the HBO series "Big Love" in January, followed by "Lying," David Fincher's "Zodiac" and "Sisters" with Lou Doillon and Stephen Rea. "I am taking the summer off and decorating my apartment in New York, Dorothy Draper/Billy Baldwin style," Sevigny says. "They are demolishing my bathroom as we speak, which is very nerve-racking — that I can't be there to oversee it. I have a decorator, though."

At the end of August, she'll return to Los Angeles to shoot season two of "Big Love." "I'm glad that I can be part of something good on television instead of another crime scene or hospital show," she says. In the series, she wears hair extensions to achieve Nikki's superlong braid. "I wasn't allowed to wear any makeup and I have to dress pretty dowdy, so I said, 'You have to at least let me have big, beautiful hair, like a lioness.'"
