Twenty four hours after winning her first best actress Golden Globe for Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica Chastain finishes a Q&A at the Arclight theater, plops down onto a couch on the second floor, and bursts out laughing when she finds out that, according to Twitter, she is now dating The Avengers’ Tom Hiddleston.
“Why would they say that?” she asks, wondrously. “It’s not true at all. It’s funny, two weeks ago I was dating – I’m not dating,” she clarifies. “But there was a rumor onPage 6that I was dating (co-star) Edgar Ramirez. “I love him, but he’s just my friend.”
When they start fictionalizing your love life, you’ve made it, right?
It’s fair to say that a lot more than just the rumor mill has changed for the much-lauded redhead. One year ago, Chastain sat for her first interview with this newspaper at a hotel in Santa Monica. Not only did she go unrecognized, the maître d’ wished her well on a job search, after she requested a quiet table for an interview.
W Magazine asked to 25 celebrities on their best performances issue “who is your cinematic crush”. Jessica, of course, named Gary Oldman – specially in ‘Dracula’. I know, Jessica… I know!
The first photos of Jessica arriving at the studios of The Daily Show with John Stewart are added in our gallery. She looks stunning in a white Dolce & Gabbana dress.
As announced, Jessica was flawless last night as guest on Jon Stewart’s daily show. You can watch it below:
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.
