I have a nice threat for you today. Added a beautiful new photo shoot Jessica did last year, also some add-ons of already added pictures. Check it:
Thanks to my friend Claudia for the session 019 add-ons!
Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, and Jada Pinkett Smith are on board once again as a quartet of Central Park Zoo animals just trying to get back to New York. Unfortunately, they wind up in Europe instead, where they’re chased by a ruthless animal control squad led by Capitaine Chantel DuBois (Frances McDormand). In an effort to escape their clutches, they take up with a circus traveling across the continent, meeting new friends like Vitaly the tiger (Bryan Cranston), Gia the jaguar (Jessica Chastain), and Stefano the sea lion (Martin Short) along the way. Watch the first full trailer after the jump.
The Europe-set adventure will be getting a European debut when it premieres at Cannes in May. Madagascar 3 will then get a theatrical release on June 8.
Jessica is one of the four different covers of the current “The Hollywood Reporter” issue, which show us the 25 most powerful stylists, and on her cover she’s with Elizabeth Stewart;
I like working with Elizabeth because she sees everyone as individuals and doesn’t try to force me into something I’m not.

I’m sure mostly of you don’t know, I’m Brazilian and have to dig a lot to find some magazines here in my country, mostly I have no access unless by Ebay. So if you have access to Jessica’s magazines/newspapers and want to contribute with the site, please, email me. Credits will be given.
You were up for an Oscar alongside your co-star Octavia Spencer for The Help, was that a bit awkward?
It would have been awkward if I was set on winning but I wasn’t. A year ago it was ‘Jessica Chastain who?’ and now it’s ‘Oscar-nominated Jessica Chastain’. I can’t help but smile saying that.
You walked down the red carpet for the Cannes premiere of The Tree of Life holding Brad Pitt and Sean Penn’s hands, whose idea was that?
In the car on the way to the red carpet I was so nervous, I was shaking and crying. When I got there and saw Sean and Brad, who’d done it a million times, they told me to grab their hands. They are class-act gentlemen.

Jessica Chastain has arrived in India to start shooting Kathryn Bigelow’s film about Osama bin Laden. She and Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez are set to film the thriller in Chandigarh, India, despite Hindu radicals protesting against the portrayal of Pakistan on Indian soil.
The movie, which also stars Mark Strong, Joel Edgerton and Kyle Chandler, will focus on Navy SEAL Team Six’s capture of the Al Qaeda leader, in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Zero Dark Thirty, directed by Oscar-winning Hurt Locker filmmaker Kathryn, is expected to be released later this year.
When actress Jessica Chastain attended the Sundance Film Festival more than a year ago, making the rounds for the film Take Shelter, she spoke on a panel for The Creative Coalition. The focus was squarely on her co-star Michael Shannon, who had been graced with an Oscar nom — and hardly on the 30-year-old newcomer.
Boy have times changed. In the span of about a year, Chastain’s profile has risen to the top thanks to the deluge of films featuring this new It Girl and drawing critical acclaim.
Though appearances in such films as Tree of Life, Take Shelter, Corialanus and The Debt, to mention four, she has captured both public and critical attention. But it was The Help that garnered three crucial nominations including one for Chastain in the Best Supporting Actress Oscar category.
Prompted by this dazzling spotlight, I culled the following Q&A from sundry roundtables and press conferences focusing on her role in The Help.
Jessica has been nominated for Best Actress at the 38th Saturn Awards. Winners will be announced on June 20.
Take Shelter (Sony Pictures Classics)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Sony)
Another Earth (Fox Searchlight)
A Dangerous Method (Sony Pictures Classics)
Martha Marcy May Marlene (Fox Searchlight)
Michael Shannon also got a nomination as Best Actor for Take Shelter, which also got a Best Horror/Thriller Film nomination. Check here the full list nomination.
I did a little gallery update, with some new pictures of Jessica attending some events this year. Check it:
Jessica was the highlight of last week’s Oscars red carpet, and EW has chosen her their prime spot on the best dressed list.
After making every stop on the awards circuit this season, Jessica Chastain had her breakout style moment on the one red carpet where it really counts: the Oscars. Chastain’s one-of-a-kind silk organza Alexander McQueen gown stood out as the night’s best dress and instantly catapulted the actress, who has been building up her résumé with films like The Help and The Tree of Life, into the big leagues. “When I put it on, it feels like everything that I am experiencing tonight wrapped into one garment,” says Chastain, 30, who was not only attending her first Academy Awards but was there as a nominee. “The work they put into it, the embroidery, the details, the perfect fit, the colors – all remind me of the moment and made me emotional.”

I’ve been looking for this pictures since I first saw it on Tumblr, and my friend Lindsay of Rachel McAdams Online kindly sent it to me to be added to our gallery. Jessica looked perfect being the usual adorable person while noticed a “Good Luck Jessica” poster in the audience outside the Santa Monica Pier, last February 25th. Check it:
