I was stalking Jessica’s Facebook page as if there was no tomorrow just to read her reaction on her Oscar nomination, and she posted a few minutes ago:
OH MY GOODNESS! I am in absolute shock. I didn’t expect to receive an Oscar nomination! I really didn’t!!! I don’t understand this great year. I’m in Paris and was in a fashion show when the nominations were announced. My life has become a dream. Thank you all, for your love and faith in me. I’ve more blessings than I can count. Today is a beautiful day that I will remember for the rest of my life. My love to all of you xxxx jes

Jessica Chastain’s best disguise these days is to walk around looking exactly like herself.
“No one ever recognizes me,” says the actress, who was almost as omnipresent as buttered popcorn in movie theaters last year. Settling in for a vegan lunch at Shutters hotel, with her hair pulled back in a loose ponytail and wearing only light makeup, the redhead describes requesting a quiet table from the restaurant host for her interview.
“And he goes: ‘Oh, OK. Good luck with your interview. I hope you get the job.’ ” She grins. “And I go, ‘oh, it’s not that kind of interview, it’s a journalist.’ And then he goes, ‘So you’re interviewing her?’ ” Chastain dissolves into giggles, but the host wasn’t through. “Oh, you’re a writer?” he asked. “It just kept getting worse and worse,” she said, laughing. “It happens all the time.”
In fact, Chastain, 30, may be one of the most prolific actors working today: In 2011 she had seven films open, and five more are scheduled for release or production in 2012. “Usually an actor has to work in the porn industry to have that kind of success,” cracked her Tree of Life co-star Brad Pitt onstage at the Palm Springs Film Festival gala earlier this month.

We completely forgot to post this amazing video here last month. Jessica was featured at NY Times Magazine which was featuring 13 of last year’s great performers trying on the black hat and impersonating specific icons and Jessica is one of them.
Jessica Chastain as the Fire Starter
On what she was thinking: ‘‘I was channeling loneliness. .?.?. The idea of feeling invisible. And because of that, it creates a burn in her to be noticed, even if by doing harm.’’
What’s the secret behind Jessica Chastain’s red-carpet style? Each look is perfectly planned, thanks to her stylist Elizabeth Stewart. “She knows me so well,” Chastain told InStyle.com of her fashion hero, an industry veteran who has also worked with Cate Blanchett, Jennifer Lawrence, Freida Pinto, and Amanda Seyfried. “She knows that I love color. I also like things that have an old-fashion vibe to them. I love celebrating a woman’s body and femininity. So she knows what to pull.” Just take a look at some of her vibrant choices above (from left, Viktor & Rolf, Roland Mouret, Balenciaga, and Karen Caldwell).
Jessica Chastain attended the 2012 Producers Guild Awards held at The Beverly Hilton hotel yesterday in Beverly Hills, Calif.
She was on hand to support the producers of her film The Help, who received a nomination for Outstanding Producer of Theatrical Motion Pictures. Jessica looks amazing wearing a Balenciaga dress and BoChic earrings. Check the pictures in our gallery:
Receiving quite the impressive turnout, a full lineup of Tinseltown stars turned up for the opening night of Cirque du Soleil’s ‘OVO’ in Santa Monica, California on Friday. Taking place at the Santa Monica Pier, lovely actresses including Hilary Swank, Kate Beckinsale and Jessica Chastain all made appearances at the stage show’s grand debut.
