In accordance with an statement of Xavier Dolan, posted on his Instagram, Jessica‘s character will be cut out of  his upcoming film.

The Death and Life of John F. Donovan was scheduled to be released in 2017, but was delayed. According to Xavier:The decision was editorial and narrative, in that it has nothing to do performance, and everything to do with a character, and the compatibility of the story line. This “villain” subplot, albeit funny and entertaining, didn’t feel like it belonged to the rest of the story, which ended up not being heroes or their nemesis, bur rather on childhood, and its dreams.”

We of the JCO team were very saddened by the news, we were excited for the movie, especially after the stills were released and Jessica was photographed on the set of the film. Anyway, we know that it must have been a very difficult issue for Xavier and we wish the film success.

See the movie stills here.

Jessica is amongst a very star-studded line-up on the cover of this years Vanity Fair Hollywood issue, which has been released online on January 25. Chastain is joined by Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Tom Hanks, Zendaya, Claire Foy, Michael Shannon, Harrison Ford, Gal Gadot, Robert DeNiro, Michael B. Jordan and the Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter. The issue consists of the fold-out cover photoshoot, and a small blurb on each star. Find the photos in our Gallery and Jessica text snippet below:

In the quarter-century since Vanity Fair launched the Hollywood Issue, show business has changed in fundamental ways, as have magazines. But a star-studded, foldout cover remains a surefire thrill. This year’s portfolio goes inside the cover’s creation, which took place in L.A. and New York as Annie Leibovitz photographed 12 of film and TV’s most iconic actors—with a non-actor corralled for the shoot for his last V.F. hurrah.

The films and TV shows represented by the actors in this year’s Hollywood Portfolio—which for the first time offers a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot—took the #MeToo movement in stride, offering strong women in leading roles, as well as strong men supporting them. Here we have Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman summoning the women’s battle cry of Big Little Lies alongside Tom Hanks as Ben Bradlee, the indispensable sidekick to The Post heroine Katharine Graham. There’s also Claire Foy and Gal Gadot, embodiments of their formidable characters, the Queen and Wonder Woman, and one possible future female president in the mix. Movies have always thrived on relevance, and this year’s cover stars don’t hesitate to make a statement about the times we’re living in and the changes that need to happen.

JESSICA CHASTAIN, actor, producer.

30 films, including Molly’s Game (2017).

With her cherry hair and Creamsicle complexion, Jessica Chastain possesses a classical beauty suitable for Victorian high collars (Crimson Peak), to-the-manor-born hauteur (Miss Julie), heroic archery (The Huntsman: Winter’s War), and parts requiring her to keep her dimpled chin cocked. Chastain has also dived into the netherworlds of counter-intelligence (Zero Dark Thirty) and high-roller underground gambling (Molly’s Game, as real-life “poker princess” Molly Bloom) without losing translucence. On the horizon is perhaps Chastain’s greatest challenge: playing the sainted country-music singer Tammy Wynette in George and Tammy. (+)

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.
