Chloe Sevigny says she’s nothing like Paris Hilton — and bristles at a comparison.

A journalist recently tried to compliment the “Big Love” star — telling Sevigny she is sexier than the jail-bound heiress.

“Well, I don’t find trashy sexy, so I’ll try to take that as a compliment,” she said, reports WENN.

And the actress is very clear that while she’s no Paris Hilton — she’s also not Ashlee Simpson.

Simmons supports Kucinich
Rap impresario Russell Simmons isn’t supporting Barack Obama — or even front-runner Hillary Clinton. The hip-hop impresario — who has vigorously lobbied for Democratic candidates in the past — says he’s putting his weight behind Dennis Kucinich.

Simmons says he is supporting the dark horse’s run for the White House because of “my concern for Mother Earth and everything in it is a very real one,” Simmons told CNBC's “Big Idea’s” DonnyDeutsch. “Not only the environment but also the animals and the struggle to fight world poverty and the poverty here in America.”

He added that President Bush is not “promoting a good relationship with the world” in any “meaningful way.”

Notes from all over
Barbra Streisand is jumping to the defense of Joan Baez. Baez, a longtime peace activist, who claims she was forbidden from performing at Walter Reed Hospital — although officials say she simply didn’t get proper approval. “Over the long span of her career, Joan Baez has been an outspoken advocate for peace, an activist and a concerned patriot of our country,” Streisand noted. “She strongly believes in the theory of non-violence and she spoke out against the war in Iraq, like millions of others in this country and around the world. Does freedom of speech and thought exist in the United States anymore?”  ... Deborah Gibson (not Debbie any longer) says she has a secret to looking good. “Clean living, baby,” the 36-year-old singer said. “I’ve never touched a drug. I don’t smoke. I love getting my sleep.” ... With friends like these, who needs enemies? One Britney Spears fan who attended her brief concert in Anaheim. “Britney looked so hot!!! Your gotta hand it to her, after 2 kids, and all she has been through lately, she genuinely looked happy and excited to be back doing when she loved,” one aficionado gushed on a fan site. “The fact that she didn’t actually sing shouldn’t have surprised anyone, she never has at any of her shows. She is a performer, she puts on a show that wouldn’t be possible if the sang. If I wanted to see a singer, I would go to a Broadway show.” The fan continued: “Anyways, I love Britney to death, but for anyone who thought she had work done on her chest. Let me tell you those were all natural. As a woman I can tell that she has breast fed, even with the push up bra they just weren’t perky anymore.”
