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[/embed] 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.
While in Europe last month Jessica visited El Hormiguero, in Spain, for another amazing time to promote Molly’s Game. They have uploaded the videos, which you can watch below. We’ll work on screen captures asap,
and hopefully, promotional images can also be released! Enjoy!

And she won’t stop! Still promoting Molly’s Game, that will open nationalwide tomorrow (Jan 5) Jessica visited Jimmy Kimmel Live for another nice interview. On the interview, she said she’s afraid her in-laws would hate her because she’s vegan.
The two families met in the Alps, Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy, where things got “interesting.” “My family is from Northern California, and his family is from Veneto, Italy. My family doesn’t speak [Italian] and his family speaks very little English… It was a very quiet holiday, but there was a lot of pointing and a lot of food.”
That’s where the families differed: “We’ve known each other for about six years and Americans eat in about an hour,” says Chastain. “A meal starts and then it’s done. When I went to Italy, I didn’t realize that meals last for three or four hours… I don’t understand this but Sunday brunch will go from 1 pm to 5 pm. You eat one course and it’s delicious. Then the second your plate is done, his mom is putting more food on my plate. So I have a trick where I just push the food around on my plate for hours.”
Chastain’s vegan diet, however, poses more of an issue for her in these situations than the duration of the meals. “In the beginning, I would say I’m vegan. Which is like the worst thing. I don’t eat 10 meals and I’m vegan. I would say, ‘I’m sorry I can’t eat that,’ and [my mother-in-law] would say, ‘No problem, we have fish’.”
“Do you think they hate you?” Kimmel asks, to which Chastain responds, “Maybe that’s why it’s so quiet. They just hate me.”
Kimmell posted a very nice promotional photo on the show’s twitter account, and you can already find the interview in our video archive. Plus, we posted some nice photos of Jessica arriving and departing from the studios, where she promoted Time’s Up Now.

Jessica Chastain in Molly’s Game
“To play Molly Bloom, I thought about what women have to become in order to find power in a society where men are making all of the rules. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh—the Kardashians are an incredible example of women who have their own sense of entrepreneurial power.’ And in real life, Molly looked a lot like them. For research, I actually watched Kim’s tutorial on face shading and contouring. As the movie goes on, Molly transforms into this idea of what a woman has to be in order to be heard: The heels get higher, the necklines are lower, the hair is longer. It was quite a departure for me, physically. And the strange thing is, I don’t look like myself at all in this film, and so many people have said to me that I’ve never looked better.”

Jessica is currently at the Palm Springs Film Festival, and attended a brunch held by Variety, the Variety’s Creative Impact Awards And 10 Directors To Watch. You can check the fist images added in our gallery.
“Major change is coming!”
Jessica Chastain was recipient of the Chairman’s Award for her starring role in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game last night, at the Palm Springs Film Festival Opening Gala.
“I want to acknowledge what a difficult year 2017 has been for all of us,” said Chastain, who applauded the need for continued diversity in the film industry. “Major change is coming. Change is good. Change is needed. Through a joint effort we will make things better. We must be better. And we will.”
While the news has been saturated with stories of sexual assault and harassment, Chastain made a pointing of sending “some well-deserved love to some of the good guys,” listing such iconic filmmakers and actors as Christopher Nolan, Terrence Malick, Al Pacino and John Madden and the late producer-director Dan Ireland, who passed away in 2016.

A few days before 2017 ended, Jay-Z decided to break the internet with the Tidal release of Family Feud. Directed by Ava Duvernay, the seven-minute-plus video is a short film, serving up some sci-fi, futuristic realness with the most inclusive, woke A-list cast you will ever see in a music video.
Joining Jay-Z, Beyonce and the heiress to their throne Blue Ivy includes an inspiring roster of actors from every part of the color spectrum: Michael B. Jordan, Trevante Rhodes, Thandie Newton, Jessica Chastain, Irene Bedard, Omari Hardwick, David Oyelowo, Emayatzy Corinealdi, America Ferrera, Aisha Hinds, Henry G. Sanders, and Storm Reid — who is the star of Wrinkle in Time. Rounding out the cast is the “founding mothers”, which feature Mindy Kaling, Rashida Jones, Rosario Dawson, Janet Mock, Brie Larson, Constance Wu, Niecy Nash, and Susan Kelechi Watson, who, as the video shows, are different women from all walks of life who are enlisted to change the country’s constitution.
A preview was released on Youtube but, to see the full video, you need a Tidal subscription. At the Washington Post, you can see more behind the video story – including Ava and Jessica behind-the-scenes pictures.
