Jessica Chastain for People’s 25 Women Changing the World

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.”

‘Molly’s Game’: Behind the Scenes, Stills & French Poster

New poster, stills, a french poster and behind the scenes pictures were released. We’ve add them all in our gallery.

Also during the weekend, Aaron Sorkin, director Molly’s Game, revealed that Chastain and Elba had no time to rehearse for the movie due to budget and time constraints.

“We shot the movie in 49 days: Monday through Fridays. “When the movie really needed 60. So you have to get creative, you don’t have as much rehearsal as you’d like. And, with the scenes between Jessica and Idris in those offices—which are seven, eight, nine page scenes with dense language—the most important element there is rehearsal.”

Jessica at the ‘Produced By’ NY Conference

Jessica at the ‘Produced By’ NY Conference

On October 29, Jessica attended the Produced By Conference that’s held in New York City. She participated of The Power To Shake It Up panel, with the actresses Sarah Jessica Parker, Alison Benson and Kelly Charmichael. The panel was sponsored by Deadline, that published some infos during 75-minutes panel:

Jessica Chastain said that while men need to own their part of the injustice, “We need to put ourselves forward.” Offering the caveat that her comments “might be controversial,” Chastain said, “There’s something that women can do. … We need to stop apologizing.” Citing data that show how much more likely men are to push their own career cause than are women, she said, “In any industry, a woman should feel confident.”

The Hollywood Reporter also covered the event:

While many of the women on the panel have crossed paths with Harvey Weinstein and Chastain has frequently spoken out against the disgraced mogul over the past three weeks, the talk largely avoided the topic of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood. Still, Chastain began her remarks about her work as a producer by saying that she started her company, Freckle Films, because she felt like she was part of a problematic industry.

“Sometimes I think with anything that’s happening, we don’t acknowledge the fact that we’re complicit in our inaction—that goes across many areas,” Chastain said.

And she argued that she and her fellow producers needed to dig deep to find ways to move beyond the status quo for hiring directors, writers and below the line talent in Hollywood in order to increase the representation of women in those positions.

For instance, she argued, “If we’re asking for a list of directors and a list of writers from an agency, in most cases you get a list and it’s all men and you have to kind of go beyond that. … Men traditionally are paid more than women, and agents make more money when someone that has a higher quote gets a job. So we need to go beyond what the agents submit and find the artists because they are out there.”

Jessica & Gian in Milan

Jessica & Gian in Milan

On Thursday (19), Jessica and Gian Luca attended a private dinner in Milan to celebrate the opening of Moncler store. See below the pictures and the article (translated) shared by Vogue Italy.

Last night Via Montenapoleone became a real white carpet. On the occasion of the opening of the new Moncler store, Milan’s main shopping street was literally covered with artificial snow where, in front of a crowd of curious people, they became immortalized by the actors and VIPs ever-present paparazzi. “Renovated flagship store in Via Montenapoleone,” said Remo Ruffini, President and CEO of the brand, “represents today Moncler’s largest single-brand boutique in the world and underlines the constant commitment of the brand to the city of Milan as well as add an important part in terms of presence on the Italian market “.

The new Moncler flagship store at No. 1 Via Montenapoleone, is the result of the creativity of the Gilles & Boissier studio and combines rationalism and classicism of the 1940s with the typical French boiserie. The entire store, which boasts 4 floors, is crossed by a helix scale that becomes the true trade union between the different Moncler worlds.

To celebrate the opening of the new flagship, Remo Ruffini wanted to reunite celebrities and brand friends like Arizona Muse, actresses Jessica Chastain and Isabella Ferrari, fashion director of Italy Emanuele Farneti and designers Peter Dundas and Eva Cavalli.
