Added additional adorable pictures to the portrait session Jessica and James did to USA Today while promoting The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby:
Jessica is on the cover of November issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, featuring a large interview and a beautiful photoshoot in which she’s wearing Valentino Couture, Armani Privé and Christian Dior Couture dresses.
This year, Jessica Chastain had a birthday party. The photographs are all over her Facebook page: Chastain playing a high-stakes game of ping-pong, bellowing into a microphone mid-karaoke, blowing out candles on her birthday cake.

She is, she insists, shy. To be interviewed is almost liberating because it forces her to talk in a way she wouldn’t usually, especially to a stranger. ‘Probably there are some people who feel great about themselves and don’t second-guess anything they say or do or wear, but that’s just not me.’ [Read more]
LATIMES – Jessica Chastain, Jennifer Garner and Reese Witherspoon will help hail the McConaissance.
The three actresses are among the friends and colleagues set to fete Matthew McConaughey, the 28th recipient of the American Cinematheque award, at the organization’s annual benefit gala on Oct. 21.
Late-night TV’s Jimmy Kimmel will host the event, which takes place at the Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills. Other participants scheduled to pay tribute to the Oscar-winning actor include Cole Hauser (“Dazed and Confused”) and producer Lili Fini Zanuck (“Reign of Fire”), with additional presenters to be announced.
The nonprofit Cinematheque, which operates the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood and the Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, named McConaughey its latest honoree in June, calling him “the epitome of what a Hollywood star should be.”
