On November 14, Jessica Chastain joined Entertainment Tonight host Nischelle Turner and President of Production and Development of Freckle Films, Kelly Carmichael, for an important conversation at Marie Claire’s 2022 Power Trip summit, a conference built to bring together some of the most powerful women leaders and executives in the country.

Turner opened the conversation by asking Carmichael and Chastain about the inspiration behind their production company, Freckle Films, which Chastain founded in 2016 with the intention of amplifying women’s stories. For Chastain, her enthusiasm for telling women’s stories goes back to her childhood. “I was raised by a single mom. My grandma was a single mom,” she explained. “My whole life growing up I was surrounded by women. I felt that they were erased from society in a way that really disturbed me.”

In the lively conversation, the actress also opened up about her 2015 Critic’s Choice Speech, the eye-opening talk she had with co-star Octavia Spencer, the changes she’s noticed in Hollywood, and more. Read on for more highlights from Chastain and Carmichael during their conversation with Turner, below.

The New York Times reports that Academy Award-winning actress will lead a spring revival of the classic Henrik Ibsen play, revised by Amy Herzog and directed by Jamie Lloyd.

Jessica Chastain, who won this year’s Academy Award for best actress, will return to Broadway next spring to star in a revival of Henrik Ibsen’s classic play “A Doll’s House.”

Chastain, best known for her work on television and in film, previously starred on Broadway in a 2012 revival of “The Heiress.” She won the Oscar for her portrayal of the title character in “The Eyes of Tammy Faye.”

Billed as a “radical new production” in publicity materials, this revival of “A Doll’s House” will feature a script revised by the playwright Amy Herzog, who wrote the well-received Off Broadway plays “4000 Miles,” “Belleville” and “Mary Jane.” It will be directed by Jamie Lloyd, a British director whose recent American forays — bracing (and starry) revivals of “Betrayal” on Broadway in 2019 and “Cyrano de Bergerac” at the Brooklyn Academy of Music earlier this year — won critical acclaim.

Lloyd’s production company had planned to stage this show, with Chastain starring, in London, with rehearsals set to begin in 2020, but that idea was torpedoed by the pandemic.

Specific dates and other cast members have not yet been announced. The producers are Ambassador Theater Group, Gavin Kalin Productions and Wessex Grove.

“A Doll’s House,” which was first staged in Denmark in 1879, has been produced on Broadway 13 times previously, according to the Internet Broadway Database, though it’s been a while: The most recent production was in 1997.

After playing televangelist Tammy Faye Messner, Jessica Chastain won her first Oscar. Now, as she takes on country star Tammy Wynette, she reveals why winning doesn’t change a thing.

Comedian Jon Stewart used to joke that fame in Hollywood is like a nightclub with increasingly exclusive VIP rooms, one after another, leading ultimately to the final velvet rope, beyond which Jack Nicholson sat alone, having a party all by himself. Jessica Chastain can relate, she says, at least in one way. After winning the Academy Award for Best Actress in The Eyes of Tammy Faye earlier this year, she went to a few parties but says, “Parties aren’t really my thing.” She would often just sit and people watch, which she loves to do. “I’m quite shy in groups of people,” she says. At one party where she had parked herself on a quiet couch for the duration, the host came over and asked her if he could introduce her to the other guests. “And I was like, I’m good here,” she says. “He was so sweet, and then he goes, ‘There’s one other person who comes to my party and sits exactly where you are, and they never moved: Jack Nicholson.’”

Wallflower or not, Chastain has a majestic screen presence that made for a very splashy entrance to the collective consciousness in 2011, eight years after she had graduated from the acting school at Juilliard, with an incredible run of films including Terrence Malick’s Palme d’Or winner, The Tree of Life, and The Help, for which Chastain received her first Oscar nomination, for Best Supporting Actress. The following year, playing a fictionalized CIA analyst on the hunt for Osama bin Laden in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, Chastain introduced us to the zeal and determination that have become signatures of her characters in the time since. Hers is a massive, concussive performance as the heroic and tarnished leader of Team America, effectively, for which she received a Golden Globe for Best Actress and her first Oscar nomination for the same category—in a film that has gone on to become one of the most talked about and second-guessed American films since 9/11. None of which is incidental to Chastain, who has said that filmmaking is a political act, a line she attributes to Jean-Luc Godard. And, incidentally, when I begin to ask how we ought to think about Zero Dark Thirty now—about whether the film should be diminished in our estimation by claims that it is an instrument of CIA propaganda and misrepresents the effectiveness (and so endorses the cost benefits of) torture—Chastain wants me to know that those lines of thinking were introduced to the discourse by a competitor in that year’s Oscars race, someone involved in a competing campaign who she says is no longer in the industry. “I know about the criticism, and I disagree with it,” she says. I also seem to remember the film being recognized as a watershed for women in Hollywood: produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures, directed by Bigelow, and with Chastain front and center. But, she says, “it wasn’t marketed that way at all. I wasn’t even on the poster.”

“I like to meditate, do yoga. That to me is a luxury, because in my job it’s the opposite of quiet”

A tentative “sometimes” is the word Jessica Chastain drops when asked if she considers herself a movie star.

She admits she recently got tongue-tied and shy being in a room filled with high-wattage celebrities. And she was just shopping recently with her grandmother and a friend at a store, where strangers excitedly pointed at her; one whispered, “I loved The Help!”

“It makes me think, Oh, I love it when people recognize me!” she says. “But then I think, Do I? Is this my life?

So let’s settle this starry matter now: The answer is absolutely, yes, she’s a star. After all, it was Chastain who broke out in 2011 with a whopping six movies, including The Help. She’s since dazzled in Interstellar, The Martian, It Chapter Two, Molly’s Game, Zero Dark Thirty, A Most Violent Year and last year’s award-winning limited series Scenes From a Marriage with Oscar Isaac.

As for that A-list event filled with celebrities? She’s referring to the 2022 Oscars. Chastain won Best Actress for her stunning transformation as evangelist Tammy Faye Bakker in The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

Her success is even more remarkable given where she started. A native of California, Chastain and her four siblings were raised by her mom and firefighter stepdad in a loving but financially strapped household. She’d take in few local plays, only dreaming that one day she’d get paid to act. “I grew up in a way that I never thought I’d be invited to the party,” she says. “It affects every decision I make in terms of where I put my resources and what I act in.”
