The Hollywood Reporter – The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on May 17, bringing back together director Ned Benson and stars Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy and Jess Weixler. For the trio, it’s not just a reunion of the cast but a reunion of friends.
The actresses and director forged their bonds of friendship over more than a decade. Chastain and Weixler became friends when they both studied at Juilliard, and Chastain and Benson met long before she became a star for her work in Tree of Life and Zero Dark Thirty.
Chastain had even attended the Berlin Film Festival with Weixler when the Good Wife actress had a film, Teeth, in the fest.
“Jess is like my sister in real life,” says Chastain. “She went to the Berlin Film Festival, and I went to the festival with her, and I carried her coat on the red carpet and supported her.”
And then it reversed when Weixler went with Chastain to Cannes for the first time two years ago.
“When I came here for Tree of Life, she videotaped me on the red carpet,” Chastain says with a smile.
