W Magazine released today their Movie Issue covers and best performances from 2014, and Jessica is one of them!
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.”
Jessica and her A Most Violent Year co-star Oscar Isaac talked with USA Today about their movie.
Back when she was a drama student at the Juilliard School in Manhattan, Jessica Chastain wasn’t what you’d call a connoisseur of the boozy party scene.
“I wasn’t very tortured. But I was very obsessive about work, which I still am,” says the 37-year-old, two-time Oscar nominee, who graduated from the Lincoln Center campus in 2003. “A lot of people went to (bars) and I think I went one time during school. I wasn’t really a partier.”
Her classmate Oscar Isaac was markedly similar. “The first time I had alcohol I was 25 or 26. I was well into Juilliard,” he says. “I didn’t see the city much.”
Their first year at school, they had to perform monologues for the entire drama department. Chastain did Helen of Troy. Isaac noticed her. It wasn’t reciprocated until later.
“I can’t remember the first time we met. It wasn’t like this magic moment of, ‘Who is that man?’ ” she says.
Isaac, 34, pretends to be hurt. “Maybe a little bit,” he nudges her.

8. Jessica Chastain – “A Most Violent Year”
The wife of the kingpin in a crime movie often feels like an afterthought or a nagging counterpoint to an antihero and inspired by Dick Cheney of all people, Jessica Chastain’s Anna in “A Most Violent Year” puts her would-be good-guy husband to shame. She’s a force of nature, threatening to do what her well-intentioned spouse can’t (or won’t) with a terrifying energy and a solid Brooklyn accent. She hands out goody bags and shoots a pistol with equal aplomb, and Chastain’s performance ensures that she’s never out of control, even while Oscar Isaac’s Abel feels events spiraling beyond his control. What’s most remarkable isn’t the performance itself; it’s that Anna falls alongside the variety of roles Chastain has taken on in 2014: the brittle title character in “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby;” her strong, sensitive Murph in “Interstellar”; and her unhinged aristocrat in “Miss Julie.” Any one of those could have stood out in another year, and her prescence in all four makes us question what everyone else is doing with their talent and time.
Jessica is featured on November 26th issue of The Wrap (aka The Actors issue). The feature is called “Her again?” talking about another great year she’s having.
… When she went up for the Brad Pitt film State of Play, the word she heard back was blunt: “An unknown will never be cast opposite Brad Pitt.”
“I felt like a failure,” Clastain told The Wrap recently. “It was a year of getting really close and then not booking the job. Someone told me. ‘At one point someone is going to take the leap on faith with you – and once that happens, you’re going to get everything/ At the time I didn’t believe it, but once I started booking things, it was non-stop.”
Oh, and four months after Chastain was told that an unknown would never be cast opposite Brad Pitt, Pitt was cast opposite her in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life.
