Chloe Sevigny - Chloe Sevigny Filmed James Franco's Student Project For Free

Actress Chloe Sevigny agreed to star in James Franco's new movie Black Dog, Red Dog for free, as a favour to the student filmmaker.
The 127 Hours star turned to his celebrity pals and asked them to appear in the project, based on poet Stephen Dobyns' memoir - and he managed to convince Sevigny, Olivia Wilde and Whoopi Goldberg to waive their usual salaries to help him make the low-budget drama, which is made up of a series of short films directed by Franco and a group of his wannabe filmmakers at New York University.
And Big Love star Sevigny admits she enjoyed offering up her on-screen talents because it kept her occupied while in between jobs.
She jokes to New York Magazine, "I'm out of work right now. I thought it would be good to help some young filmmakers and busy myself so I don't go crazy and obsess over buying a cat."
Black Dog, Red Dog is expected to be released later this year (12).
