You may know Jessica from her roles in movies as Take Shelter, Coriolanus, Mama, Lawless, or the acclaimed Tree of Life, Zero Dark Thirty and The Help.

Jessica has first appeared on the public eyes during 2011 Cannes, when a very shy and beautiful redhead was being guided by Brad Pitt and Sean Penn on the red carpet. In a few months her career exploded, with seven movies being released in sequel and her first Oscar nomination coming right after. Today, it's nearly impossible you never have heard about her.

Vulture did a great interview with Jessica Chastain while in Cannes, as you can read below:

What’s it been like for you to have Him and Her cut into one movie?
It’s tough because, to be honest, they were envisioned as Him and Her — the idea of the male perspective and the female perspective. But, you know, in thinking about it, it’s like, okay, Olivier Assayas made a great film called Carlos that’s five hours long, and that’s the one I saw. There’s also a two-hour version of it that’s also really good, and most Americans saw the two-hour version. [Laughs] So it’s a situation like that. We saw the choices. The audience will be given the opportunity. They can see Him and Her, or they can see Them.

What’s your recommendation?
Well, for the cinephiles and the people who really want to commit, I would definitely say, “See Him and Her.” It’s the full experience.

AP News – Years ago at a film festival, Jessica Chastain saw a short by Ned Benson and chased him down to say she wanted to work with him.

“I was his first fan,” she says.

When Benson later penned a script about a man’s relationship with his wife before and after a tragic event, Chastain urged him to develop a female perspective: “It was just me wanting equal opportunity,” she says, flashing a smile.

The result was Benson’s innovatively structured feature debut “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” which is essentially three films: “Him” (the tale from the point of view of Connor Ludlow, played by James McAvoy), “Her” (centered on his wife, Eleanor Rigby, played by Chastain) and “Them” (a two-hour fusion of both).

After “Him” and “Her” premiered last year at the Toronto Film Festival, “Them” debuted this week at the Cannes Film Festival. The combined version, which Chastain also produced, opens in theaters in September.

Cannes is where the twice Oscar-nominated Chastain emerged in Terrence Malick’s Palme d’Or-winning “Tree of Life,” a breakout that announced Chastain as an uncommonly gifted actress, seemingly fully formed from the start. In an interview, she reflected on the distance she’s traveled between “Tree of Life” and “Eleanor Rigby.”

AP: How is to be back where your career essentially started?

Chastain: What I’m having trouble understanding is that was only three years ago. It feels like it was years and years and years ago. I don’t know if that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe it’s because I feel like I’ve had so much experience the last three years. But I love coming to Cannes because that premiere for “Tree of Life” was my debut to the world as an actress. It changed my life for the better. It was one of the great, great moments of my life.

Jessica did an interview yesterday to USA Today, in which they talked about the bizarre event from Friday night, in which an Ukrainian prankster journalist dove under America Ferrera’s gown on the red carpet.

Chastain was not fazed as she joined her co-stars for the The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, which is part of the official Cannes festival.

“I could fit five Ukrainian journalists in my dress,” Chastain told USA TODAY before taking to the red carpet.

Chastain has a special place in her heart for the glamorous Cannes carpet. She considers her first trip up the famous stairs three years ago for The Tree of Life her first true carpet experience.

“It was really scary at first, but now I love it,” said Chastain. “It feels like a second home to me, this festival.”

She took special care to choose her blue Versace gown to reflect the Cannes spirit. “It was inspired by dresses of the 1950s but made with a modern edge,” she said.
