Jessica is promoting Molly’s Game in the new cover of Town & Country magazine, with a beautiful photoshoot by Matthew Brookes and words by Tim Teeman.

On the interview, she says she is passing on stereotypically female movie roles in an effort to combat old school Hollywood conventions.

“I am not one to go for traditional female roles, because I don’t think traditionally female characters are very interesting, and I don’t think they represent real life. I’m working hard to break free of stereotypes that the film industry has created and nurtured around women.”

In addition to choosing her roles carefully, Chastain says she will no longer accept anything less than equal pay for equal work.

“If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less,” she explains. “It’s not really part of my world anymore, because I just won’t accept it.”

Jessica, who has long been an advocate for social change and women’s rights, says she hopes to inspire young girls to defy gender stereotypes as well.

“I believe that the energy you put into the world is what you get back, so I’m trying to put something positive out there, something to inspire girls and go into science, to run for office, to try to join the space program,” she says. “I am happy to stand alongside and march for any minority to have equal rights, but I’m not into anything that incites violence, that magnifies hate, because it becomes contagious … I try to approach my political resistance and my life with hope and love.”

The full interview can be read on Town & Country website, and also has been added to our press archive. Scans will be added asap. For now, check the beautiful photos in our gallery.
