Woody is what kind of dog?
Hardy: We don’t know. He’s some cattle dog, cross Labrador thing. I found him with Jessica Chastain. We were in Atlanta, Georgia, doing Lawless, and he was in the motorway. We almost ran him over with a Prius. Imagine running him over with a Prius, of all things. [Laughs.] What would be worse: to be run over, or to be run over by a Prius? You know what I mean? [Laughs.] And he ran off into the motorway, and Jess was like, “No, no, no! You’ve got to go after him!” He was only 11 weeks old, and so we got hold of him and he became the on-set dog, and Jessica’s mom looked after him for me for about six months while he cleared quarantine, and then we brought him back to London, so he’s my dog now. He goes on all my film sets now. He’s a great on-set dog.
I have added screen captures of Jessica’s part in “Lawless”, the acclaimed film from director John Hillcoat. I have to say that I LOVE this movie, and it’s becoming difficult to pick a single Jessica performance to be my favorite. She’s impeccable as Maggie and her on-screen chemistry with Tom Hardy makes it even better. Be sure to pick your own copy, since Lawless is out today in DVD/Blu-Ray and Combo Pack!
Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company announced today the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD release of the critically acclaimed film, LAWLESS, from director John Hillcoat.

Thanks to my friend Jess for the heads up!
Thanks to wonderful Marica, I have added a few more HQ pictures of Jessica last September 13 at “The Heiress” photocall. Plus she sent me a BEAUTIFUL portrait of Jessica with her co-star Judith Ivey done at the same day. Also, a new promotional photoshoot from “Lawless” has also been added.
Enjoy and link us back if reposting. Thanks!
The Weinstein Co.’s Lawless debuted to $1.14 million on Wednesday, placing No. 1 and earning a solid B+ CinemaScore from audiences.
The film skewed slightly male on Wednesday (54 percent), while 33 percent of the audience was younger than 25.
By opening Lawless on Wednesday, The Weinstein Co. hopes to build good word-of-mouth heading into the long Labor Day weekend.
Jessica Chastain will never forget 2011: She co-starred in six movies, including her Oscar-nominated turn in “The Help.” And Jessica shows no signs of slowing down. Wednesday, she lets loose in the new fact-based film, “Lawless,” about a family’s illegal moonshine business.
Jessica calls the film is a mix of genres: Gangster meets Western meets Love Story. It’s set in the time of Prohibition. And history buff Jessica loved being able to take a step back in time.
“I love researching,” says Jessica. “When I get a role that’s one of the very first things I do. I just want to fill myself up with knowledge of what the character might have come from. Not just even reading about the history of the time, which of course I do, but I also love learning about the music of the time, listening to that; thinking of the food of the time; what someone would have done for fun.”
With “Lawless,” the fun for Jessica came from working with an ensemble cast that includes Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Guy Pearce.
“I geek out all the time because I’m so excited to work with people and that’s what it was like for me on this film,” says Jessica.
“Lawless” was a fairly testosterone-driven set, one that had producer Lucy Fisher comparing Jessica and her male co-stars to Peter Pan’s Wendy and the Lost Boys.
“They were always roughhousing and playing around and sometimes I would get involved, but for the most part, ‘Boys calm down, now’s time to work, we all love each other, let’s go back to work,'” said Jessica. “They treated me very special. They were always such gentlemen around me.”
Much of “Lawless” was shot on location in a small town in Georgia. Jessica says for fun they’d all go to Wal-Mart and buy supplies for their very competitive game nights.
She said she also tried moonshine — and is not a fan.
“Lawless” is in theaters Wednesday.
