Welcome to Jessica Chastain Network, the original and most complete fansite dedicated to Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain.
You may know Jessica from her roles in movies as Take Shelter, Coriolanus, Mama, Lawless, or the acclaimed Tree of Life, Zero Dark Thirty and The Help.
Jessica has first appeared on the public eyes during 2011 Cannes, when a very shy and beautiful redhead was being guided by Brad Pitt and Sean Penn on the red carpet. In a few months her career exploded, with seven movies being released in sequel and her first Oscar nomination coming right after. Today, it's nearly impossible you never have heard about her.
Our goal is to provide fans an up to date source for Miss Chastain with news, a comprehensive content, and a picture gallery with over 30.000 paparazzi free pictures and counting. Thank you for visiting!
Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain has a big role in the upcoming hunt-for-bin-Laden movie Zero Dark Thirty, but right now her focus is on a revival of the play The Heiress, which is open now at New York City’s Walter Kerr Theatre. Why is Chastain taking to the stage right when her movie career is skyrocketing? The actress recently told EW that the part was just too good to pass up. “When they sent me this script it was the day of [2011 espionage drama] The Debt‘s premiere, and I thought, ‘Oh, I’m not sure if i want to go do a play right now.’ But I read the part and I felt a connection to her and I knew I wanted to do it. If they had sent me the script to make it as a film I would have done it as a film. I always follow the character. To me it doesn’t matter the medium.”
NEW YORK — The latest revival of “The Heiress” has done the near impossible — it’s drained the light from one of the most luminous actresses working today. In a good way.
Jessica Chastain, that ravishing redhead with the milky skin who shot a dose of bubbly charm to the film “The Help,” turns almost ghoulish in the title role at the Walter Kerr Theatre, which appropriately opened Thursday, the day after Halloween.
Chastain had her work cut out for her playing the “plain” Henry James heroine Catherine Sloper — “an entirely mediocre and defenseless creature with not a shred of poise” — forced to choose between a potentially gold-digging suitor and her aloof father, but the actress has seemingly scrubbed all beauty from her face and voice.
What’s left is a skittish woman with hollow eyes, a simply horrible hostess who, when she speaks, does so in a dull monotone. Even her hair looks mousy. Full credit goes to Chastain, who has buried herself in dullness to play one of theater’s more formidable proto-feminist roles.
The first photos of Jessica during the Broadway Opening Night of “The Heiress” are added in our gallery. Jessica looked stunning in a Stella McCartney dress, Harry Winston jewels, and Christian Louboutin heels. Keep checking back for more additions.
Jessica Chastain and director Moisés Kaufman discussed with NPR about The Heiress:
A much-anticipated revival of The Heiress, a 1947 play based on the Henry James novella Washington Square, opens in New York on Thursday. It marks the Broadway debut of two accomplished young stars — Jessica Chastain, the Academy Award nominee from The Help, and Dan Stevens, from the hit television series Downton Abbey.
On the surface, the story of The Heiress seems simple enough — a wealthy young woman in Victorian New York is torn between her controlling father and a young, penniless suitor. Is the father being overprotective? Is the young man just a cad? But there’s much more going on, says director Moisés Kaufman.
“Henry James — because his brother, William James, was a psychologist — he really understood a lot about human psychology and he got so much so right so early on,” Kaufman says. He describes the revival as “very Jamesian” in its darkness and ambiguity.
