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 Chastain and director Aaron Sorkin are part of The Wrap Actors/Directors/Screenwriters issue and they did a interview to talk about Molly’s Game. Check digital scans and photoshoot added in our gallery.
Jessica Chastain gave an interview to newspaper Evening Standard, as part of Molly’s Game promotion. A part of the interview has been published on Thursday’s issue, with the full interview coming on the supplement ES Magazine. Check the pictures and read the interview in our press archive:
An actress and her publicist are sitting around a kitchen table in boiling hot Beverly Hills, eating macrobiotic salads and talking about Harvey Weinstein.
So far, so unremarkable. These days, this is a scene that’s being repeated at lunch tables throughout the city. Only today, the actress is Jessica Chastain, who knows Weinstein — she made a number of movies that he bought and distributed. And she knows some of the other people involved. So she has a lot to say on the subject.
‘Yeah, he tried to get me to pimp out my best friend [the actress] Jess Weixler,’ says Chastain. ‘Like very flirtatious, “Oh I’ve got such a crush on her — you got to help me.” He’s incredibly friendly but also very volatile. He normalised the abuse. But everyone in this industry is complicit. We’re all part of the problem. I heard the rumours even before I entered the industry. So we have to ask ourselves, why was it okay? Why are agents sending actresses to meetings in hotel rooms? It goes back to the days of Fatty Arbuckle, Louis B Mayer, Jack Warner. Shirley Temple said in her biography that when she was 12, a producer pulled out his penis! So we can look at Harvey as though he was the cancer or we can be realistic. He’s not the disease, he’s the symptom.’
Jessica Chastain is featured The Hollywood Reporter‘s Actress Roundtable (November 15, 2017) issue. Check out the photos and interview below!
Six top actresses — including Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan — open up about risky roles and how the industry’s culture of abuse might finally be on the verge of change: “I feel hopeful because we’re not ignoring it anymore.”

Jessica Chastain is on the PEOPLE’s 25 Women Changing the World issue, with celebrities like Pink, Uzo Aduba, Gal Gadot and among others .
Chastain talks about her work as volunteer at the Humane Society of the United States and about her three-legged dog Chaplin.
The Humane Society of the United States volunteer, 40, supports the animal protection organization in its partnership with 200 U.S. school districts to bring plant-based menus into cafeterias and works with fashion brands to help them create cruelty-free products.
“The more success that I’ve been afforded in my industry, the more I’ve gotten to learn about what’s going on in the fashion world,” Chastain says. “I very strongly believe in buying products that are cruelty-free.”
Chastain, who has “adopted every animal I’ve ever had,” also favors a vegan lifestyle. “I don’t think everyone needs to be vegan,” says the Oscar nominee. “It just means helping create healthier choices for society and for our hearts at the end of the day.”
She does, however, want people to speak up on social media. “If there’s something that’s important to you, you can write about it and you can do so on your own platform,” she says. “You don’t have to be an actress or a journalist or run your own newspaper or have your own network to actually have a platform.”

Jessica is on the August issue of Vanity Fair Italy. She talked about her marriage, Miss Sloane, build a family and much more. The photoshoot used on the magazine is the same used on Elle Spain. The photographer is Mario Sorenti. Read the interview:
Jessica Chastain is the exception to the rule. Actually she really confirms all the rules about the entertainment world. The one that success inevitably changes you; the one that you pass from a total lack of opportunities in the beginning to having way too many options after and this makes your choice even harder, and sometimes can lead to a real career disaster; that one for which being worshipped, a relentless poison, destroys the reality and brings true talented girls to become excessive and whining divas. It happens to many, but not to Jessica Chastain. Keep on reading!
