Welcome to Jessica Chastain Network, the original and most complete fansite dedicated to Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain.
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.

Our goal is to provide fans an up to date source for Miss Chastain with news, a comprehensive content, and a picture gallery with over 30.000 paparazzi free pictures and counting. Thank you for visiting!

Last Saturday (27) Jessica was photographed in Manhattan (New York) wearing a beautiful t-shirt of “To Write Love On Her Arms” (a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide). She discussed it with Yahoo as well, in an interview while promoting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (you can read the whole interview behind the cut).

It’s a dark side of celebrity culture that reflects a wider attitude.
To me, that shows that we have a long ways to go. I’m thinking that if someone is dealing with depression, you can’t trust that person to reach out to you in a society that doesn’t really welcome that. So, that’s what I’m hoping changes with organizations that deal with suicide prevention and depression. There’s this particular organization called To Write Love on Her Arms — this one starts in high schools, where it’s especially difficult dealing with bullying, for people discovering their sexuality. There’s so much happening in high schools. I’m really passionate about this organization, and it’s just newly come into my life.

How did you hear about this organization?
I started searching online. I never talk about this, and I can’t believe what I’m going to say right now — I know my publicist is going, “What are you talking about?” But I do have — my sister killed herself. And that is in my history. So, for me, suicide is a very important issue. If I can do anything to help someone move through any darkness that they’re in, I’m gonna do whatever I can to help. It’s so important to begin the conversation when they’re in high school, because that’s when we’re getting programmed as to what’s acceptable in society. It should be acceptable to talk about your feelings.

Both Jessica Chastain and Michael Pena (End of Watch) are, according to Variety, in early talks to join Matt Damon in 20th Century Fox’s The Martian.

The Martian is based on Andy Weir’s 2012 e-book publication, which issued a print edition this past February. It is officially described as follows:

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.

Chances are, though, he won’t have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old “human error” are much more likely to kill him first.

But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills—and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit—he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next. Will his resourcefulness be enough to overcome the impossible odds against him?

salome

Five years ago, a virtually unknown stage and TV actress from California auditioned for a play that Al Pacino was directing and starring in. The play was Salome, written by Oscar Wilde, and the actress was Jessica Chastain. A film was made of the stage production, and within three years Chastain had been nominated for two Oscars.

Now Pacino has made a documentary about the making of Salome – called Wilde Salome – and they are both available for the first time to British audiences.

“This is really special to me,” says Chastain. “This is my first film role, and this is the first time anyone ever really believed in me. Before I got this role I could rarely even get film auditions.

“I got cast in the play first, and we did that, and then Al wanted to make the play into a movie in Los Angeles – because when Al Pacino does a play, everyone wants to see him – and then that was an incredible showcase for me. The audience would be scratching their heads and saying, ‘Who’s that red-headed girl with Al playing Salome?'”

Wilde’s play, originally written in French in 1891, is a tragedy based upon the Biblical account of the Tetrarch Herod (played by Pacino), who gave his stepdaughter Salome the head of John the Baptist in return for her dancing for him.
