Alright, alright, alright! Matthew McConaughey got a ‘stellar’ tribute from American Cinematheque last Tuesday (21) and Jessica (as the other Interstellar friends Anne Hathaway, Mackenzie Foy and director Christopher Nolan) was among the friends to celebrate his career.
To China Topix, she recalled the first time he saw the Oscar-winning actor. She had first watched him perform in the highly acclaimed movie, “A Time To Kill”.
The actress remembered McConaughey’s role as the defense attorney. Chastain shared that her favorite scene was when he was doing his closing speech in court and he paused, placing his hand on his face and choking back his emotions as he tried to continue speaking.
Chastain shared that before the said movie, she only thought of him as absolutely gorgeous, but that after, he became to her what an actor should be. “That was in the beginning and I’ve been a fan ever since,” she added.

Let’s celebrate once, and let’s celebrate twice! Amazon UK already set the date for Salomé/Wilde Salomé DVD release date: November 17. It contains the film Salomé, plus the documentary Wilde Salomé, and you can already pre-order it.
The DVD is region 0, which means it plays everywhere. A truly gem.
A double disc package of Salomé, Oscar Wilde’s most controversial work, banned in London in the late 19th Century. This scintillating tale of lust, greed and revenge follows the legend of King Herod and his lust for his young stepdaughter, Salomé, and her sexual baiting of John the Baptist. Wilde’s adaptation has spawned multiple stage productions including an opera by Richard Strauss, and influenced work by musicians including Nick Cave and U2. Starring Pacino as King Herod and Jessica Chastain as Salomé in her first on screen role. Wilde Salomé follows Pacino’s journey to Europe to understand more about Oscar Wilde.. It is a profound vision that explores religion, literature, politics, violence and sexuality from one of the world’s greatest actors.
Langauges: English, German, Italian, Spanish, Brazilian, and Portuguese.
Region 0, NTSC, Aspect 16:9, Class: U

Jessica was guest at David Letterman show last night to promote Interstellar (and David had a very nice clip to show!), and she talked a little about her New York lifestyle, what did she has made since Crimson Peak ended filming a few months ago, about her parents, about being Vegan and having cookie classes, about Juilliard, and how is her life now that she’s famous. It was a very lovely interview and you can watch it now in our video archive.
Screencaptures will be added later, and this post edited with the gallery link. Stay tuned!

E! Online’s Mark Malkin got an exclusive interview earlier this week at the opening of the launch of the Extremely Piaget launch party, and he got some bits about Interstellar:
I’ll tell you a little bit. I’ll tell you about my character. I play a woman who is like a scientist. She’s super super smart and scientific and she’s not whole at the beginning when we see here. There’s an emotional part missing that we then wonder, ‘Does she become completed by the end? Is there that journey?’ I would say yes.
Trust me, there’s no way to over hype this film. I never talked like this about a film, but when I saw it I was like I don’t know what to do. It’s great.
Chastain worked most with Michael Caine.
There was one day we were doing a scene and they stopped and it was just Michael and I and they were changing the lighting,” she remembered. “I was of course asking him all these questions like, ‘Did you ever meet so and so? How as this experience? Tell me about this movie.’ There was a little bit of a break and he kind of looked away and I walked over to Christopher Nolan and I just went, ‘Thank you so much. I’ll remember this day forever.’ It was really special.
