Sorry for missing that! Jessica was at Chelsea Lately last night to a short, but very funny interview! You can watch the interview below:
Edit: As you can see, screen captures are added, thanks to my friend Becca which helps me to find a good copy to do it.
As told previously, Jessica has a two-pages spread at October issue of Empire magazine. Thanks to my friend @RobJacko, which scanned it to me, you can find it in the gallery:
A new featurette and six clips more were released this week for “The Debt”. You can see the featurette embed at this post, for more videos, go check at MovieWeb.
Jessica is featured in a two-paged article at currently issue of Entertainment Weekly. Thanks to Kelly, we have scans up in our gallery.
I also was informed that Jessica has a two pages inside the October issue of Empire magazine. I’m also trying to get scans, but the magazine is out already and you can go and get your own copy!
Collider is reporting that Jessica it’s on a list of actress poised to test oppsite Tom Cruise in his upcoming project, Joseph Kosinski’s (Tron: Legacy) sci-fi film Horizons. Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Brit Marling and Olga Kurylenko are the thesps vying that will vie the role this Saturday. Additionally, Universal has scrapped the title Oblivion and is now referring to the project by its former working title Horizons for the time being.
The story takes place in an apocalyptic future that finds humans living in clouds above the uninhabitable Earth, and Cruise plays a soldier relegated to staying on the planet to work on drones that seek out and destroy a savage alien life form.
There are two key female roles in the film: a woman named Victoria who is Cruise’s “right-hand man and lover” and keeps him company while he’s repairing drones, and Julia, his fiancee before Earth was invaded. There’s no word on whether the actresses are all testing for the same part, different parts, or both roles simultaneously.
When Jessica Chastain left her theater training at Juilliard and started landing movie roles, she got a gift. None of the movies came out right away. It took a while before anyone saw her work in Al Pacino’s Wilde Salome (which finally debuts in Venice), or Terrence Malick’s mystical The Tree of Life (which Fox Searchlight premiered in Cannes before a summer opening), or John Madden’s Mossad thriller The Debt, which post-Disney Miramax finally sold to distributor Focus Features (August 31).
The delayed openings meant that Chastain remained a hot actress—and a blank slate. Nobody projected her last movie onto what they thought she could do. So she was able to be a chameleon, playing a dramatic actress, a sweetly luminous idealized 50s mother, and a tough-as-nails assassin. She also earned raves as brassy southern blonde Celia in summer lit hit The Help, and starred opposite Michael Shannon as his wife in the ominously atmospheric drama Take Shelter, which played Sundance and Cannes, and will show on the fest circuit before Sony Pictures Classics opens it September 30. Ralph Fiennes also cast her as his wife in Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, where she stood her ground against both him and the magnificent Vanessa Redgrave as her mother-in-law. Weinstein Co. picked up the film after it earned raves in Berlin; it will play Toronto before its December release. And Chastain also landed a spot in another fall fest film, Texas Killing Fields, as well as TWC’s upcoming period gangster ensemble Wettest County. We talk about all these films below.
I feel like that comment might have been taken out of context, or mistranslated (…) I was misquoted as saying my weight gain [for The Help] was torture, and I never said that. I was making a joke about wearing a girdle in the heat. That’s torture! And then they changed it to say that I meant gaining weight, which is not [torture]. So I’m starting to learn now, things sometimes get misinterpreted.

Jessica Chastain as Celia Foote
When the actress arrived to read for the part of the blonde bombshell, no one thought the slight redhead was right. Then Chastain, 30, did her scene, and she had the room in tears. All that was needed was a corset and pushup bra.
Outtakes of that amazing photo shoot Jessica did to Elle can be found now in the gallery:
