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?

Yahoo Style published today this photoshoot featuring Jessica and Oscar Isaac, in order to promote A Most Violent Year.
Chastain has been hailed as a director’s darling, a chameleon-like talent who can shape shift into any character. So when Chandor was casting about for a male lead he solicited Chastain’s help. She immediately suggested Isaac, a fellow Julliard School graduate who was a virtual unknown until he made his star turn in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewellyn Davis in 2013. “We had never acted together in school— he was a few years behind me— but I always wanted to do something with him,” she says.
Their thespian chops are on full display in A Most Violent Year. The film may be subtle (the violence is mostly alluded to), but both give powerhouse performances. Chastain is razor sharp as the cigarette-smoking, ice queen while Isaac, who said it was hard to grasp the part (“I know nothing about business and the heating oil business seemed so boring…”), nails it as a conflicted man struggling to obtain the American Dream.

She’s featured inside in a picture taken by Tim Walker, and is, once again, quoted talking about gender equality in Hollywood.
Jessica Chastain in A Most Violent Year and Interstellar
“The part I play in Interstellar was originally written ?for a man. It was about a father and son, rather than a father and daughter. When Christopher Nolan, the director, switched the gender, I don’t think much about the character changed. And that shows you that Hollywood could easily take more chances with female characters: Men and women aren’t that different.”
