Kim Kardashian’s original celebrity partner in the controversial Actors on Actors interview backed out at the last minute, and now fans are wondering who it could have been.

It has now emerged that Oscar nominee Chloe Sevigny was a last-minute replacement, as the original choice “called in sick” at the last minute.

The move has raised eyebrows on social media, with some suggesting the star may have been afraid of being paired with the reality star.

“Wow, it must have been a real emergency that Kim’s original partner pulled out at the last minute,” one person wrote, while another questioned which “actor” it was that had pulled out. Another person speculated that the mysterious A-Lister, “probably didn’t want to do an acting segment with a Kardashian.”

While it’s currently unclear which A-List star retired, there are plenty of names it could have been.

Around the same time, rival publication The Hollywood Reporter brought together a host of big names for its actress roundtable featuring Jennifer Aniston, Nicole Kidman, Jodie Foster, Sofia Vergara, Brie Larson and more.

Within hours of Variety editor-in-chief Ramin Setoodeh revealing that the actor who was originally paired with Kardashian called in “sick” at the last minute, X users began speculating who dumped the reality star and because.

One joked: “I would have faked a hospital stay to avoid that shit stain on my career too.”

Another suggested that the decision was probably made because “real actors know other real actors.”

‘Kim is a person who is assigned ROLES. “Kim has never gone to work as an actor or auditioned,” one troll fired back.

A third joked: “They probably didn’t want to do an actor segment with a Kardashian.”

“Wow, it must have been a real emergency that Kim’s original partner left at the last minute,” a fourth sarcastically commented.

Others wrote that “the problem was including Kim” due to her lack of experience in the industry compared to other standouts like Sevigny, who has been acting for nearly three decades and has been nominated for an Oscar.

While it's currently unclear which A-List star dropped out, there are plenty of names it could have been, like some of the other stars featured in The Hollywood Reporter's actress roundtable, like Jennifer Aniston.

Other couples on the series included Jodie Foster and Robert Downey Jr., Jennifer Aniston and Quinta Brunson, Naomi Watts and Jonathan Bailey, and Elizabeth Debicki and Emma Corrin.

Setoodeh addressed the criticism while chatting with Meghan McCain on Friday’s episode of her podcast, Citizen McCain.

The mogul insisted that Chloe was simply grateful to be there with Kim because she wasn’t originally supposed to be part of the shoot.

He said the Zodiac star “graciously intervened” after an unnamed actor “called in sick” just two days before filming was supposed to take place.

‘I’m going to give you a little information. I’m going to give you some news: Chloe Sevigny was not supposed to be Kim Kardashian’s partner,’ Ramin.

“Kim Kardashian had someone else she was supposed to be paired with and that actor called in sick on a Friday night, and Kim was supposed to do this on a Sunday.”

He said they turned to Chloe because she had been in the ‘Ryan Murphy universe’ as Kim, who starred in the most recent season of his show, American Horror Story; Chloe starred in Ryan’s series Feud: Capote vs. the Swans earlier this year.

“Chloe was incredibly kind, stepping in at the last minute and jumping into this conversation with Kim,” he continued. “But that wasn’t her original acting partner.”

As for who was supposed to participate in the photo shoot with Kim, he declined to reveal any names because he “didn’t want to draw undue attention to the person.”

“But people can guess,” he added. “And maybe on social media, if someone guesses correctly, I’ll put a little heart on their (post).”

After the outlet revealed the cover, some people wondered if Chloe was throwing some subtle shade toward Kim when she reposted the ad to her Instagram Stories and captioned it, “Always nice to be included.” Thanks @Variety.’

After the magazine hit stands, social media went into an uproar, with some people calling the cover “an insult to trained, hard-working actors” like Chloe and a “disrespect for the craft” (Kardashian pictured April 2024).

Regarding the rumors, Ramin insisted that there was no tension between the two women on set.

“What was funny about all the press is that everyone was talking about how Chloe was trying to overshadow Kim, (but) she wasn’t,” he said.

‘She was saying she was very happy to be included.

‘Chloe was very excited to talk to Kim. I was in the dressing room with her right before she went on and they really liked her.
