USA Today has published an interview with Jessica, as part of The Huntsman: Winter’s War promotion.
Good luck pitching Jessica Chastain a supportive wife role.
Chris Hemsworth learned that when he proposed she be his wife in The Huntsman: Winter’s War (in theaters Friday), a prequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
“Chris came up to me,” Chastain, 39, recalls. “It was the first time I met him at Critics’ Choice Awards and he talked to me about it. I said, ‘Listen, you’re great. I loved the first movie, I’d love to work with you — but I’m not interested in playing the wife who sits at home and cheers you on. You know what I mean?’ ”
By phone, Hemsworth recalls the scene exactly. “She said, ‘Don’t bother sending it to me unless I get to kick (butt),’ ” he laughs. “And I said, oh, we’ll make sure that’s the case. And she does.”
Winter’s War turns back fairy-tale time. Charlize Theron returns to the screen as the evil Queen Ravenna, but instead of sharing the screen with Kristen Stewart’s Snow White, this time it’s Emily Blunt by her side as her once-sweet sister, Freya. When Freya’s infant daughter is murdered, her icy fury is released, and Freya gathers up all the children in the kingdom, including Chastain (who plays Sara), to create an army of child soldiers.
‘The Huntsman’ will be released on Friday (April 22) in the United States and Jessica is expected to make an appearance on various talk shows. The current schedule can be found below, be sure to tune in and check your local listings for the time. We will update this posts if more appearances get announced.

Jessica attended last night at the Regency Village Theatre, in California, the world premiere for The Huntsman: Winter’s War. She was joined by co-stars Emily Blunt, Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth. She was looking amazing in a textured Altuzarra dress, which featured an emerald green upper half and a mint hued floor-length skirt. Our gallery was updated with over 400 HQ pictures of her at the black carpet. Check it:
Jessica attended this week a press conference held at Hollywood Foreign Press Association, and I have a few photos added in our gallery. Check it:
During the press tour for The Huntsman: Winter’s War Jessica sat down with Metro and talked about how bad reviews would influence her desire for doing a superhero film.
You always have to choose to do things that are going to be right for you, you can’t think in terms of how something is going to be viewed when it comes out. What is the experience I’m going to have when making the film? Am I going to leave the set having learned something and having grown in some way? That’s all you can control. If you live your life anticipating the future or worrying about the future you’re missing a whole lot of life of living in the present.
She also said she’d love to do a Western film, she wants to play a really kick ass role in a Western. Check the bit in the video below:
Sadly I wasn’t yet able to find any picture for yesterday’s photocall for “The Huntsman: Winter’s War” in China but Jessica posted on her Instagram a very pretty one alongside her co-star Chris Hemsworth:
