Jessica is gracing the cover of this saturday’s Telegraph UK Magazine. The magazine cover, photoshoot outtakes and official BTW photos have been added in our gallery. An excerpt of the interview can be found below.
After a slow–burning start to her career, Jessica Chastain is on fire. Interview by Celia Walden.
In the corner booth of a clattering beachside restaurant in Santa Monica, California, Jessica Chastain is playing dead. Her pupils are static, and beneath her grey cashmere jumper her diaphragm has stopped moving. ‘You see how I pufed out my chest and just held it there?’ she says, pinging back to life with a smile. ‘It’s actually quite hard.’ A dead body in a pilot for a goingnowhere TV show called The Evidence was one of Chastain’s first roles – memorable because ‘there was no acting at all. I was literally just lying there on the street in San Francisco in the cold and the rain. Six months later they brought me back to lie in the street again, but even then I never thought, I need to do a diferent job. I was still so excited about it.’
Eight years on, Chastain, 37, is in two Oscar–contending films, Christopher Nolan’s dystopian sci–fiepic Interstellar and JC Chandor’s A Most Violent Year (for which she is up for a Golden Globe tomorrow), was on the cover of a recent Time magazine and is the face of an Yves Saint Laurent fragrance. Since we last met two years ago she has won a Golden Globe and been nominated for an Oscar for her role as Maya, the intrepid CIA agent in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty. I am expecting her to have developed a hard shell of success and to have lost the easy, high–school giggle I found so appealing the first time I interviewed her. I am wrong. Chastain arrives alone; she is open and speaks with such a nerdy enthusiasm for A Most Violent Year that she trips over her own words trying to describe what playing Anna Morales – the flinty wife of a heating–oil company proprietor – meant to her.
A Most Violent Year – and, of course, Jessica – are featured in some magazines from this earlier 2015. Entertainment Weekly has on its first issue of 2015 reviews from AMVY plus Miss Julie. Empire bring us AMVY and also feature Jessica as one of the year performers. And the February issue of Total Film has a feature on Jessica, AMVY in review and a special feature with Crimson Peak, with no new picture of Jess but you now can find the already released still in high quality at the gallery.

Jessica Chastain “I want to play intelligent women”
In the past few years our cover star has become one of the most sought-after names in Hollywood. She talked to us about her perfectionist tendencies, karaoke and why there needs to be more women in the film industry.
Jessica is gracing the cover of M Magazine from the weekend edition of the French news paper Le Monde. The magazine scans have been added in our gallery and we are working on the translation on the interview/article right now.
Jessica is featured on November 26th issue of The Wrap (aka The Actors issue). The feature is called “Her again?” talking about another great year she’s having.
… When she went up for the Brad Pitt film State of Play, the word she heard back was blunt: “An unknown will never be cast opposite Brad Pitt.”
“I felt like a failure,” Clastain told The Wrap recently. “It was a year of getting really close and then not booking the job. Someone told me. ‘At one point someone is going to take the leap on faith with you – and once that happens, you’re going to get everything/ At the time I didn’t believe it, but once I started booking things, it was non-stop.”
Oh, and four months after Chastain was told that an unknown would never be cast opposite Brad Pitt, Pitt was cast opposite her in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life.

Entertainment Weekly published on this week issue the first official look of Jessica on Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak! To the magazine, Jessica talked a little about the film:
It was really draining, emotionally and spiritually. The experience took more out of me than enything I’d ever done. When I finished I had to take some time off.
