Jessica is featured on November 26th issue of The Wrap (aka The Actors issue). The feature is called “Her again?” talking about another great year she’s having.
… When she went up for the Brad Pitt film State of Play, the word she heard back was blunt: “An unknown will never be cast opposite Brad Pitt.”
“I felt like a failure,” Clastain told The Wrap recently. “It was a year of getting really close and then not booking the job. Someone told me. ‘At one point someone is going to take the leap on faith with you – and once that happens, you’re going to get everything/ At the time I didn’t believe it, but once I started booking things, it was non-stop.”
Oh, and four months after Chastain was told that an unknown would never be cast opposite Brad Pitt, Pitt was cast opposite her in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life.
