Alright, alright, alright! Matthew McConaughey got a ‘stellar’ tribute from American Cinematheque last Tuesday (21) and Jessica (as the other Interstellar friends Anne Hathaway, Mackenzie Foy and director Christopher Nolan) was among the friends to celebrate his career.

To China Topix, she recalled the first time he saw the Oscar-winning actor. She had first watched him perform in the highly acclaimed movie, “A Time To Kill”.

The actress remembered McConaughey’s role as the defense attorney. Chastain shared that her favorite scene was when he was doing his closing speech in court and he paused, placing his hand on his face and choking back his emotions as he tried to continue speaking.

Chastain shared that before the said movie, she only thought of him as absolutely gorgeous, but that after, he became to her what an actor should be. “That was in the beginning and I’ve been a fan ever since,” she added.
