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!

As announced a while ago, Jessica is currently at the Deauville Festival for a tribute.

Through her successive roles, (Chastain) has confirmed her emotional capacity to grab the limelight like no one since Nicole Kidman, and the Festival presented her with its “New Hollywood” award.(…) We salute her grace and talent, and the beauty of the truth she brings to her performance, which Christopher Nolan and Guillermo del Toro will raise to new heights in their forthcoming films. The tribute is a token of our affection, admiration, recognition and esteem for the talent of the recipient. For the past few years, we have been paying tribute to those actresses who embody the cinema of today, and who will form the legacy of tomorrow.” said Bruno Barde, Deauville’s artistic director.

I added the fist picture that surfaced, hoping more to be released soon.

NY Times Movies has published this video, in which writer and director Ned Benson narrates a sequence from “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them.” It also has an extensive article/interview with Ned about the film since its early steps. Read some excerpts below, and head over to NY Times to read the full interview:

“The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” began, Mr. Benson said, in 2005 with a screenplay for the film now known as “Him.” But when he showed that first script to Ms. Chastain, hoping she would want to play the title character, she was full of questions — and doubts.

“I wasn’t very interested in playing her in that incarnation,” she said. “Because it did feel to me that she was a product of his story, that she wasn’t a real person.

“As an audience member and an actress, I’m interested in women’s stories, too, and what they go through,” she continued. “I see this a lot in scripts: The female character is the puppet or prop of the male character. But I’ve always tried to look for characters that have their own arcs, that are flesh-and-blood human beings.”

Prodded by Ms. Chastain’s questions about who Eleanor really was, Mr. Benson set to work fleshing out the character, and then, he recalled, almost imperceptibly “it became ‘Why don’t I just write a script?’ ” because “ ‘Well, what better way to explore a relationship than both completely subjective sides?’ ”

Mr. Benson and Ms. Chastain were by that time a couple. So he was with her on the set of Terrence Malick’s 2011 film, “Tree of Life,” a breakthrough role for her, and also accompanied her to Paris, all the while revising and polishing the script, with her input.

As Ms. Chastain’s career continued its vertiginous ascent, she used her growing prestige to help recruit a supporting cast that has won Oscars, Tonys, Césars and various other awards. Isabelle Huppert and William Hurt play her character’s parents, Ciaran Hinds plays her father-in-law, and Viola Davis, with whom Ms. Chastain appeared in “The Help,” plays Professor Friedman, who sort of befriends Eleanor when she enrolls in her “identity theory” course.

“It was the red hair, the red-haired family,” Ms. Huppert said jokingly in an interview last month in New York, where she was appearing in a play. “No, she’s been declaring her admiration for my work for quite some time, and she’s a wonderful young actress and person, so I did it mainly for that.”

Vulture listed not only these examples, but others in which Jessica is being very supportive and enthusiast over her female actresses friends.

The Hollywood Reporter – Jessica Chastain and Kristen Wiig are in very early talks for the female lead roles in Ridley Scott’s Martian, THR has confirmed.

If the deals stick, they’ll star opposite Matt Damon in the Fox film, which centers on an astronaut who is stranded on a Martian colony and struggles to survive. Back on Earth, NASA tries to mount a rescue mission.

Scott signed on to direct the project after Drew Goddard exited, due to his directing commitments for Sony’s Sinister Six, the planned Spider-Man spinoff. Scott is producing with Simon Kinberg and Aditya Sood, who originally found the book the movie will be adapted from.

Goddard wrote the script for Martian based on the book by Andy Weir, which was self-published by Amazon on Sept. 27, 2012.

The Wrap published today an interview they did with Jessica, in which she called out Hollywood for the lack of great roles for women.

“Where is the Scarlett Johansson superhero movie? I don’t understand it, why is it taking so long for this?” Chastain asked TheWrap, rhetorically and with no small degree of animation. “This woman clearly shows that people want to go see her in the movies. ‘Lucy,’ didn’t it beat ‘Hercules’ by a lot opening weekend, when it was made for a lot less? She shows that she kicks ass, she’s a great actress. ‘Under the Skin’ is an incredible film, and why are we still waiting for a go-ahead on a superhero movie starring Scarlett Johansson?

“To me, it’s a no-brainer,” she added. “You want to make money, put Scarlett Johansson in a superhero movie!”

She also talked about The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby and why it has two versions of it.

“It’s a fact, the majority of films in Hollywood are from the male perspective,” she said. “And the female characters, very rarely do they get to speak to another female character in a movie, and when they do it’s usually about a guy, not anything else. So they’re very male-centric, Hollywood films, in general. So I think it’s incredible that Ned Benson, when I said I’d love to know where she goes, says okay I’m going to write another film from the female perspective.”
