SEAL Team 6 shooter calls Jessica Chastain’s ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ performance ‘awesome’

Esquire has published an interview with the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden, in a profile that explores how he’s adjusting to civilian life after leaving SEAL Team 6 — despite receiving no pension, healthcare, or extra protection for his family from the U.S. government or the military.

He gave a few hints on what ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ was wrong on its approach to the mission that killed Bin Laden. But he also said what was right: Jessica Chastain’s performance.

The portrayal of the chief CIA human bloodhound, “Maya,” based on a real woman whose iron-willed assurance about the compound and its residents moved a government to action, was “awesome” says the Shooter. “They made her a tough woman, which she is.”

Be sure to read the whole article, it worth it.

The Katie Couric Show

Jessica was guest yesterday at the Katie Couric Show in an amazing interview about life, work, co-stars, love and much more. Jessica was so adorable, that is near impossible you don’t fall in love with her instantly. My dear friend Haylie kindly recorded the video for us, and now you have it up in our media archive (it’s split in two videos separated), and screen captures in our gallery as well.


Jessica Chastain Network Birthday Project

This is our first attempt doing such project! Jessica’s birthday will be next month, most precisely on March 24th, and we wanted to do something different this year than the usual “Happy Birthday” post. We put together a Birthday Book where you can post your own messages and fan-arts. All messages will appear on the book as soon I validate it (and of course spam, insult and marriage proposal will be deleted). On March 24th I will send the Birthday Book link to Jess herself so she will be able to read all messages – and for this reason, the deadline is March 24th.

Jessica Talks About Female Rivalry

On her Official Facebook Page Jessica took a minute to talk about some rivalry crap media (and sorry to say, fans as well) are creating:

I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film Im most asked about in regards to “fighting on set”. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?
I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I’ve told her how beautiful her film work is.
Please don’t allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women arent supportive of each other. Everytime an actress is celebrated for her great work, I cheer. For the more brilliant their performance, the more the audience demands stories about women. With support and encouragement, we help to inspire this industry to create opportunities for women. And as we all know: a great year for women in film, is just a great year for film xxjes
