THE BROWN BUNNY star Chloe Sevigny opted for a childlike celebration when for her 30th birthday party - by hiring a clown to perform.

On 18 November (04), the actress invited such stars as Chris Noth, GABRIEL BYRNE, SEAN 'P DIDDY' COMBS and Tatum O'neal to help her celebrate her big day in a bash at New York's NA club.

And Sevigny decided to play to her inner child by having the venue's tables set with HELLO KITTY and fur-trimmed paper party hats, hiring an old-fashioned popcorn popper and a female clown.

She was also served two cakes - a strawberry shortcake and a chocolate cake.
