Instyle UK February 2013 Scans

We added the digital magazine scans of Jessica’s Instyle UK cover in our gallery. They are tagged but we will replace them with our own scans as soon as possible. You can also find a preview of her interview below.

On being a redhead in Hollywood: “There were a couple of times when I thought, ‘Maybe I should dye my hair blonde?’ Being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn’t know exactly where to put me.”

On not courting fame: “There are some actors, who are very, very famous, who know what they’re doing. They court it. Like Elizabeth Taylor. Richard Burton. It’s something that you woo. Fame and money have not been my goals. If they had, then this probably would not have happened, because this all happened from independent films. Not big pay cheques. Even The Help was an independent film. We were all cast before the success of the novel. Thank God, because they would have never ever given me [the part of] Celia Foote had people known how big it would become.”

On not dating other actors: “I have a rule. No actors. I realized I wanted just to be able to hang out with someone… And I didn’t want to talk about the business, first of all. I love movies. But I love talking about them like when I was 15 years old. I’m a film fan, but I don’t want to talk about auditions or what movie I’m gonna do. I find that so boring.”

I hope everyone is having a beautiful holiday surrounded by their loved ones. My family flew into NY so we could all be together. It’s been wonderful to have them here. I feel very grateful to have so much love in my life, and yes, that includes all of you. I wanted to give you all a heads up regarding the schedule for The Heiress – I will NOT be performing January 10th, 13th, and 27th, I’ll be supporting Zero Dark Thirty at the Critic’s Choice, Golden Globes, and SAG Awards. My Fantastic understudy will perform the role of Catherine. If you’ve bought tickets for those dates, the theatre will exchange them for you. Sorry if this inconveniences anyone. Much love xxjes

Jessica not in “Good People”

We reported earlier this week that Jessica was offered a part in “Good People” but now JustJared is exclusively reporting that she will not be taking the role.

While it has been reported that Jessica has been offered a role in James Franco‘s upcoming drama Good People, sources exclusively tell JustJared.com that she will not be taking the role.

“She wanted to do it but passed as she wasn’t available when production wanted to shoot. Both of their schedules are really crazy and just didn’t line up,” an insider revealed.

Good People is about a couple in debt from fertility treatments who steal a stash of cash from their dead tenant’s apartment, putting them in jeopardy from criminals and police in search of the money.

Jessica offered role in “Good People”

The Wrap is reporting that Jessica is offered a part in “Good People”.

Jessica Chastain has been offered a role in the big-screen adaptation of Marcus Sakey’s novel “Good People” with James Franco, a person with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.

Millennium Films is packaging the film, which follows a couple in their 30s in severe debt who finds the tenant in their downstairs apartment has died and left a stack of cash.

If they take the money, all of their problems will be solved. But that’s when bad things start happening to good people.

Henrik Genz is directing the film based on an adaptation of the book by Kelly Masterson. Ben Forkner, Tobey Maguire, Eric Kanzler, Thomas Gammeltoft, Mark Gill and Ed Cathell are producing. Avi Lerner, Trevor Short, Boaz Davidson, John Thompson and Matthew Plouffe are executive producing.

The novel was published in 2009. Sakey’s other credits include “The Blade Itself” and “The Two Deaths of Daniel Hayes.”

Chastain has been offered a number of other roles recently, including “The Double Hour.” The “Zero Dark Thirty” star’s upcoming films include “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.”

Gallery Update: New Photoshoot

I added a new photoshoot Jessica did while promoting ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, thanks to Annie.

Jessica Chastain gets her character in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’

As the overstressed beating heart of “Zero Dark Thirty,” a CIA analyst named Maya who relentlessly chases after the hated phantom that was Osama bin Laden, Jessica Chastain is at times steely, at times shattered, potty-mouthed but somehow girlish, touchingly lonely but scrutinized by the entire spy agency’s hierarchy.

To get to her character’s essence, Chastain used her preferred technique, which is more methodical than Method. “Every project I start I make lists, and the first one is what everyone [in the film] says about the character, and what they say about Maya is she’s a killer.”

In an extended sense, that’s certainly the literal truth about the woman the screenplay calls Maya, the book by SEAL team member Mark Owen (realsurname Bissonette) calls Jen and the CIA brass apparently call overemphasized. (The Washington Post recently described how thereal-life operative was denied a rise in rank and pay, speculatively for drawing too much attention to herself. And yet the agency has not denied the script’s contention that the female analyst, bucking a certain degree of internal doubting and inertia, was the push rod of the effort to find and, yes, kill Bin Laden.) For screenwriter Mark Boal’s part, he told The Times, “I’m thrilled with how Jessica captured the dedication and sacrifice of CIA officers. In reality, as in the film, some of them do have big personalities.”

It says much about her character’s central role in the story that despite all the film’s awards buzz — and media wrangling about its gripping torture sequences— the most talked-about moment in the movie comes from a comic beat of sorts. It happens when Maya, who’s been placed in the corner during a tense meeting to pitch a raid on Bin Laden’s compound to the CIA director (James Gandolfini as, unmistakably, Leon E. Panetta) pipes up unexpectedly with an obscure if useful fact about the terrorist’s hideaway. When the boss queries, “Who are you?” she replies with an expletive, “I’m the … who found this place — sir.”

Though Chastain has never met the woman she portrayed, she knows where the language came from. “Maya was a girl that people said looked like a girl. She didn’t look like a woman, you know? And then I thought, ‘Ooh, that’s something really interesting to latch on to,’ that when at first you don’t understand what she’s capable of, you dismiss her immediately. Her voice even, there’s something girlish. Then, also, I’m told that there’s a truck driver mouth. Perhaps because people dismiss her when they first see her, she needed people to listen. So you shock them.”
