I bet you noticed already, but I did a little revamp on our gallery’s photoshoot session that was becoming a little mess. All sessions are now separated by years and has their publication names on each album. You probably didn’t have any issue with our older format, but it was driving me crazy, so a revamp was really welcomed.
Don’t forget to watch Jessica tonight at the Daily Show, and come back tomorrow for clips and caps.
Like we updated before Jessica is gracing the cover of Instyle UK’s January cover. We just finished making the transcript of the full interview so be sure to read it in our press archive. We also replaced the scans of the magazine with site exclusive scans (please refresh the page to see them).
Have you ever wondered what it really feels like to be an overnight sensation? Jessica Chastain is one of the rare few able to describe the reality of that flashbulb moment when celebrity hijacked her life for better or for worse. She can tell you the precise date – 16 May 2011; and where she was – the Cannes première for Terrence Malick’s Palme d’Or-winning opus The Tree of Life. She’ll laugh about it now and advise I visit YouTube; watch her stepping out of a limo, hesitant, all dressed up in a canary yellow Zac Posen couture gown, usure of her footing. Catching sight of co-stars Brad Pitt and Sean Penn, she grips their hands, more for support than anything else and, all the while, there’s this sell-shocked expression writ large on her face.

That’s what Parade Magazine did ask to Jessica this week. Her answer?
You didn’t find success in Hollywood right away. Did you ever feel discouraged?
There were years of being discouraged. I didn’t have any luck when I first moved to L.A. I was in casting rooms with beautiful, tall, tan, blond women; I kept being told I didn’t look modern. But when I read the description for my character in Tree of Life, it said, “A woman who looks as though she’s from another time.” I thought, “Here we go!”
What did you buy with your first big paycheck?
A custom couch for my apartment in L.A. I actually don’t spend a lot of money on things. I still drive my 2006 Prius!
