Jessica visited this Thursday (4) CBS’s The Talk, to promote Molly’s Game that had its wide release yesterday. On the interview, they talked about the Time’s Up Now campaign and also she revealed how she almost didn’t appear in the JAY-Z “Family Feud” music video.
It came about because Ava [DuVernay], our director… she called me and told me about this secret project she was doing, would I be interested, and I went ‘Uh, yeah.’ So I was on the set [of “X-Men: Dark Phoenix”] and I talk to the producers to see, you know, would it be possible, because I’d have to fly into New York to do it, and they said; ‘No, it’s not in the schedule.’ And then my director Simon Kinberg found out and he goes, ‘no, no, no, Chastain, this may be the most important day of your life. I’m going to go on a limb and say this is more important than your wedding. You’ve got to go to this video shoot.’ So they let me out and I flew in and out of New York to shoot that.
