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.
Check in our gallery pictures of Jessica last night at Audi celebration and also the W Magazine ‘The Best Performances Portfolio’ celebration.
Jessica was interviewed by French VOST Cinéma (from Cinéma Canal +) to promote A Most Violent Year. Watch it:
Once again, W Magazine invited Jessica to talk about her cinematic crush on their Screen Test’s series. This time, she’s talking about Elvis:
In a controversial interview to Australian Women’s Weekly, Russell Crowe stated that “woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40, 45, 48 still wants to play the ingénue, can’t understand why she’s not being cast as the 21-year-old.”
Last night, during a chat with Cosmopolitan on the red carpet, Jessica responded it.
I think Russell keeps getting his foot stuck in his mouth,” she said with a laugh. There are some incredible actresses in their 50s and 60s that are not getting opportunities in films, and for someone to say there are plenty of roles for women that age … [that] is not someone who’s going to the movie theater.[There’s] a huge difference between male roles and female roles, and there are a lot of great actresses out there that I wish I could see in more films.
How can one not love her?
Jessica, Oscar Isaac and JC Chandor attended last night the National Board of Review Gala, to receive their awards for A Most Violent Year. You have over 300 HQ pictures added in our gallery:
