Yahoo Style published today this photoshoot featuring Jessica and Oscar Isaac, in order to promote A Most Violent Year.
Chastain has been hailed as a director’s darling, a chameleon-like talent who can shape shift into any character. So when Chandor was casting about for a male lead he solicited Chastain’s help. She immediately suggested Isaac, a fellow Julliard School graduate who was a virtual unknown until he made his star turn in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewellyn Davis in 2013. “We had never acted together in school— he was a few years behind me— but I always wanted to do something with him,” she says.
Their thespian chops are on full display in A Most Violent Year. The film may be subtle (the violence is mostly alluded to), but both give powerhouse performances. Chastain is razor sharp as the cigarette-smoking, ice queen while Isaac, who said it was hard to grasp the part (“I know nothing about business and the heating oil business seemed so boring…”), nails it as a conflicted man struggling to obtain the American Dream.

The Art of Discovery is a book edited by Robin Bronk and designed by typographer and award-winning art director Nancy Rouemy, which features renowned photographer Jeff Vespa’s intimate portraits and key inspirational moments and stories from Hollywood luminaries including Jessica Chastain, Nicole Kidman, Jared Leto and many others.
The book is on sale on Amazon and others, and was released last month. I added Jessica’s part in our gallery. In it, she talks about a quote of her favorite book, To Kill a Mockingbird.
You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around it.

For this year’s awards season, The Envelope brought together a unique group of actresses, including rising stars breaking through to the next level and established stars breaking out into new roles and challenges, each earning some buzz for their current films.
Participating in the conversation were Jennifer Aniston from the small, personal drama “Cake” (opening in December); Emily Blunt from the musical “Into the Woods” (opening Christmas Day); Jessica Chastain from the recently released space epic “Interstellar” and the December drama “A Most Violent Year”; Gugu Mbatha-Raw from the historic drama “Belle,” which opened in May; and Shailene Woodley from June’s young adult love story “The Fault in Our Stars.”
On The Envelope website you can watch videos (unfortunately can’t be embed) from the interview, plus excerpts of the conversation moderated by Times film writers Rebecca Keegan and Mark Olsen.
I watched it twice and one time on the airplane and I was sniveling and sobbing. (laughter) Because, you know what, airplanes make you more emotional and it was really like I was loudly crying, and I didn’t realize it because I was wearing the headphones and someone told me and I was like, “Oh, my God!”
