The Kids star admits Tripplehorn has become her role model - because the Basic Instinct star has the perfect home life - and now she wants to emulate her happiness with the perfect partner.
Sevigny says, "She has a beautiful marriage, a wonderful husband and child. That's something I aspire to after seeing someone with that lifestyle.
"I want a guy who is masculine, good with his hands... Facial hair is a big turn-on. Most of the kids I hang out with in New York are hipster arty types, but I like a stronger, more physically imposing man.
"I'm dating, but I'm starting to feel a little discouraged... I've been texting for a year with a couple of guys without ever going on a date with them... Sadly, I haven't been doing a lot of kissing lately."
And Sevigny is urging strangers to come up and say hi if they like the look of her at Christmas parties.
She tells Playboy magazine, "I'd like to find someone to procreate with... If you're out and about and fit the description, come up and say hi. I won't bite. Well, maybe a little, if you're lucky."
