Jessica attended the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards in New York last night. She was one of the presenters during the event. The first pictures are added in our gallery, but stay tuned for more additions.
Edit: We have now over 120 HQ pictures, many thanks to Claudia for sending in several pics.
‘Zero Dark Thirty’ star, Jessica Chastain has denied reports that she is in the running to play Hillary Clinton in the planned biopic, ‘Rodham’, which documents the politician’s time as a lawyer in the 1970s. Speaking to ‘Digital Spy‘, Chastain claimed that she only heard about being linked to Rodham online.
“No, that’s actually not true. I found out about the project online, but, yeah, there’s a lot of stuff out there.”
She also talked about her Tree of Life co-star Brad Pitt:
The great thing about Brad is he’s nice to everyone. He’s a gentleman.
I don’t believe in terms like ‘top of the bill’, and maybe Brad doesn’t [either]. He just sees everyone as equals, and that’s why we’re here tonight.
Jessica attended today the Chime for a Change live concert in London, being on stage with James Franco. Will try to get the video up as soon as possible, but some pictures are already up in the gallery.
Chime for a Change is a campaign set up to help empower girls and women around the world. Beyonce, Florence Welsh, Madonna, Freida Pinto, Aishwarya Rai, Jada Pinkett Smith, James Franco, Ryan Reynolds, and feminist icon Gloria Steinem were among the presenters. Even Prince Harry sent a videotaped message of support.
Beyonce is co-founder, with actress-producer Salma Hayek Pinault and Gucci creative director Frida Giannini, of the charity, which supports projects improving access to education, health care and justice for women.
Roadshow has pre-bought The Zookeeper’s Wife, the true story of two Warsaw Zoo employees who sheltered hundreds of Jews during WW2. The film will be directed by Kiwi Niki Caro, whose credits include Whale Rider, North Country and The Vintner’s Luck. The screenplay is adapted from a Diane Ackerman novel about Antonina and Jan Zabinski, members of the Polish Resistance who smuggled Jews into the zoo and their home after the Nazis captured Warsaw.
Roadshow jumped on the project at the Cannes Film Market, plus Pride Prejudice and Zombies, an adaptation of Seth Grahame Smith’s mash-up of the literary classic. Burr Steers (Charlie St. Cloud) will direct and Lily Collins is in negotiations to play Elizabeth Bennett.
No scheduling date set yet for shooting, but will keep you informed.
Jessica is currently on Italy, and she attended tonight a cocktail party at Fondazione Nicola Trussardi for the Venice Bienalle. I have the first batch of pictures up in the gallery:
I’ll have a huge gallery update to do, but it will take some time until I finish sorting all new pictures. Until there, check this pretty photoshoots additions in our gallery:
This EW photos are stunning, and sadly they’re tagged but better than none. Enjoy!
Oh and on a side note, thanks to all our friends on Tumblr who takes time to give us a link back when using our photos on your fanarts. We’re all about to share, I personally suck on photoshop and love to see the fans work. I really appreciate it, it’s nice when fandom can work together. Cheers!

The Maui Film Festival will be held June 12-16 at the Wailea Resort.
Barry Rivers, the director of the event, announced this week that Golden Globe Award winner Jessica Chastain will be the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award recipient.
The Maui Film Festival Nova Award honors a film artist “for their astonishingly original and seamless performances, and the way they consistently infuse the characters they embody with insight, humanity and wisdom.”
Few film artists are as talented and versatile as Jessica Chastain. She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is one-of-a-kind and we couldn’t be more pleased to honor her with the 2013 Maui Film Festival Nova Award.
The award will be presented at the Celestial Cinema located at the Wailea Gold & Emerald Golf Course.
This news came directly from Jessica. On her Facebook page she brought the news that Wilde Salome finally will be released.
I’ve been talking with Al and I’m hearing that our film is to be released this year. It’s an exciting prospect, but I don’t want to spill all the beans so I’ll wait till it’s officially announced. Can you believe it? It’s the first film I ever made.
Let’s hope more details on it can be shared soon, but it’s definitely great news!
