She first was interviewed alongside Dawn French and Rebel Wilson, and later with the Jumanji stars Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart and Jack Black. On the interview, she spoke about her recent marriage with Gian Luca, and later – for the horror of Kevin Hart – about her honeymoon to South Africa.
I added three clips in our archive with the mentioned parts above – plus she talking about Molly’s Game – and all screen captures in our gallery. Enjoy!

Jessica and director Aaron Sorkin are part of The Wrap Actors/Directors/Screenwriters issue and they did a great interview to talk about Molly’s Game. On it, Aaron talks on how Harvey Weinstein made the film ‘surprisingly relevant’. Also, Jessica talked about what made her do the movie.
Did the political aspect of this have a lot to do with why you wanted to do it?
CHASTAIN Do you know who I am? [Laughs]
Well, yes, I do.
Absolutely. The major reason, of course, was to work with Aaron. But when I got the script, I was just blown away by the story he was going to tell. Molly, for me, is a representation of every woman. Any time one demographic is in control of the livelihood of a minority or a group of people, there are going to be abuses of power. And so reading the script, I really felt like, “Here is this person who sees me.”
And also, because you brought it up, I will say that after that article came out in the New York Times, I was very vocal about retweeting and doing whatever I could to support these women [who spoke out]. And Aaron was the very first person who sent me an email telling me that he was proud of me.
The industry didn’t run toward me with open arms and say, “Good for you.” It’s a scary thing to start to amplify the voices of the victims who are calling out people in Hollywood. And Aaron was the first one who sent me an email.

Entertainment Weekly is bringing their annual first look issue tomorrow, and it features X-Men: Dark Phoenix on cover. Alongside all news about the movie, we finally have the first look of Jessica as Veranke.
Jessica plays an otherwordly shapeshifter who manipulates Phoenix for her own agenda. Chastain’s villain is quiet but brutal. “Simon and I were talking about the character and I said, ‘I keep thinking of the vet who tells you you need to put your dog down,'” says the actress of her inspiration. “There’s something very clinical about it.”
Dark Phoenix will arrive in theaters on Nov. 2, 2018. Come back tomorrow for scans of the EW issue!

The 29th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival will present Jessica Chastain with the Charman’s Award for Molly’s Game in a ceremony to be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center next January 2, Variety is reporting.
“Jessica Chastain is an incredible actress who has continuously challenged herself with complex roles throughout her career,” said Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. “In her latest film, Molly’s Game, Chastain brings to life Molly Bloom’s story of a determined woman who goes from being an Olympic skier to making millions running an exclusive high-stakes poker game.”
Chastain received the PSIFF Spotlight Award in 2012, and received an Academy Award nomination for “The Help.” Past recipients of the Chairman’s Award include Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, Richard Gere, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon.
