On January 20, Jessica Chastain hosted for the first time the Saturday Night Live
On her monologue, Jessica sang an energetically anthemic version of “You Don’t Own Me” after the host called out the millions of women around the country taking to the streets on the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March:
This weekend is the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March and everyone knows women never forget an anniversary.
During the show, Chastain played the on-edge host of a Trump-era game show called What Even Matters Anymore? in which she asked contestants about various actions taken by President Donald Trump and every right answer was “It doesn’t even matter anymore.”
In a spoof on Jeopardy!, Chastain played “Veronica Elders,” the host of a game show “where I tell you what the president did or said and you have to tell me, does it even matter anymore?” she told the three contestants, who had to press a button to be the first to answer each question.
Answers to her first few questions (“The president of the United States refers to African country as poo-poo holes and says all Haitians have AIDS. Does it even matter anymore?”; “”The president has an extramarital affair with a porn star right after his wife gives birth to their son and then he pays her to shut up. Does it even matter to, say, his evangelical base?”) all turned out to be “no.”
Then “Veronica” asked a hypothetical question that hasn’t happened: “The president fires Robert Mueller, the very man investigating him for treason. Does it even matter anymore?” When a contestant pointed out that the premise wasn’t true, the host snapped back, “He will!”
“The president builds a wall but hires illegal immigrants to build it and he accidentally puts an unlocked door every 10 feet. Would that matter?” she asked, looking increasingly wild-eyed. One contestant told her he was “sensing a pattern,” and so answered no.
“You’d think Trump supporters would get mad, but then he blurts out, ‘Chuck Schumer did it’ and Trump supporters believe him. They just believe him!” Chastain said.
In the final round, the host asked contestants to imagine scenarios that would matter. When her answers to premises like Trump punching the pope and canceling the Olympics because flags are “gay” still turned out to be no, the contestants broke the fourth wall and asked Jessica if she was all right. The game ended in a hug.
Chastain also appeared on Saturday’s episode as a contestant on a Bachelor-like contest called Car Hunk, where she played a woman who was flustered by the titular hunk’s dates and said that she was the inventor of “eating Tide pods.”
In a spoof of the opening sequence of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, she played a federal agent who tried to help the skit’s version of Will Smith escape a gang he was in trouble with, until she double-crossed him.
And in a skit parodying live-streamed seminars, she played the host of a “Google Talks” segment on bullying with a thick Valley Girl accent.

Jessica Chastain stopped by The Tonight Show Thursday(18) and asked Jimmy Fallon to act out some imaginary movie scenes. They switched it up and Chastain played the male role, while Fallon played the female role.
She and Fallon then acted out three movie scenes, reading off scripts and adopting roles of the opposite gender.
The first scene, from a romantic comedy, saw Chastain playing the man, bumping into Fallon, who was playing the woman.
“Oh, excuse me. I didn’t see you there,” Chastain intoned. Fallon giggled and mumbled something about being clumsy. Here, Chastain launched into a self-involved monologue.
“You’ll have to forgive me. I was lost in thought contemplating how small we are in this vast universe,” she said. “Nothing but a speck of dust. The only thing that could give me purpose is somebody to grab onto and join me as I float through this endless world of confusion.”
Fallon‘s single line: “Yeah.”
The late night host then pointed out to Chastain, “I barely got to speak there.”
The two other faux movie scenes proved similar points, with Chastain taking the lead or carelessly dismissing Fallon’s lines with a wave of her hand and a “no thanks.”
Chastain has been a vocal supporter of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements. Last May, at the Cannes Film Festival, the actress spoke out about the problematically low female representation in film during a press conference following the festival’s final ceremony.
“This is the first time I’ve watched 20 films in 10 days, and I love movies, and the one thing I really took away from this experience is how the world views women from the female characters that I saw represented,” Chastain said at the time. “It was quite disturbing to me, to be honest. There are some exceptions, I will say. But for the most part I was surprised by the representation of female characters on screen in these films, and I do hope that when we include more female storytellers we will have more of the women that I recognize in my day-to-day life. Ones who are proactive, have their own agency, don’t just react to the men around them, they have their own point of view.”
Jessica also revealed to Jimmy Fallon on how nervous she is to make her hosting debut on Saturday Night Live
“I am so nervous,” the actress said of her upcoming debut, also explaining that she couldn’t enunciate her name while filming the promo. “Yeah, so we’ll see how Saturday goes,” the actress joked. Though Chastain is new to the SNL stage, the actress revealed that she has friends who have hosted the show before, including SamRockwell, Gal Gadot and AmySchumer.
“Gal said that it should be fine for me because English is my first language,” the actress joked of the Wonder Woman star’s advice. Meanwhile, Schumer informed her, “Just make sure you play everything super-serious, like your life depends on it.” Chastain then revealed the subtle advice Rockwell offered which was simply to drink water and “stay hydrated.”
Chastain also recalled a past, nerve-wracking experience meeting OprahWinfrey, which she describes as not having gone well.
“Because I started crying… I’m such a loser,” the actress said, further recalling the humorous encounter. “I just started crying and I said, ‘You raised me.‘” After Fallon asked whether the actress was still able to continue speaking with Winfrey, Chastain said, “I kind of blacked out after that moment.”
Though Winfrey and Chastain haven’t run into each other again, the camera did cut to Winfrey after the actress gave her speech at the Critics’ Choice Awards. Chastain explained that Winfrey was seen mouthing the word “wow” after her speech. “I don’t know if it was a good wow or a bad wow. … She knows I exist.”
Jessica attended the The 23rd Annual Critics’ Choice Awards at Barker Hangar on January 11, 2018 in Santa Monica, California. Unfortunately Jessica, who was received a Best Actress nomination for her work in Molly’s Game, didn’t win. The winner was Frances McDormand.
Chastain was wearing a green gown by Vionnet Spring 2018.
According to TV Line, Jessica will be the host of Saturday Night Live next week:
First up is Jessica Chastain (of the upcoming film Molly’s Game), who will host the Jan. 20 installment of NBC’s sketch-comedy series, it was announced on Wednesday. Troye Sivan will serve as the musical guest.
Then on Jan. 27, Will Ferrell will preside over Studio 8H with music by country music artist Chris Stapleton. The show is then expected to break for most of February during NBC’s coverage of the Winter Olympics.
Jean Grey begins to develop incredible powers that corrupt and turn her into a Dark Phoenix. Now the X-Men will have to decide if the life of a team member is worth more than all the people living in the world.
