As her first event of 2018 ( Happy New Year!), Jessica attended the 29th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala in Palm Springs, California on January 02, 2018.
Chastain was recipient of the Chairman’s Award for her starring role in Aaron Sorkin’s directorial debut Molly’s Game .
“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.

Jessica is featured in a new article in the LA Times, which she talks about her new life – and how she’s balancing work and off-screen life, including talking about how much she wants to act. You can read in our press archive:
Jessica Chastain isn’t sure how much she wants to act anymore. She’s not retiring or anything, not yet — she’s just not as passionate about the job as she used to be.
“I’m more interested in the idea of making the world a better place,” she says. “In thinking about ‘What am I contributing to the world?,’ my passions keep shifting away from myself.”
Coming from most Hollywood stars, this would probably just sound like sanctimonious garbage. But Chastain, 40, has taken action that actually backs up her words.

Jessica reunited with Saoirse Ronan, Kate Winslet, Margot Robbie, Annette Bening and Diane Kruger for Los Angeles Times annual The Envelope best actresses roundtable.
Awards season always get us thinking about what it must be like to work in the movies, so we invited six leading actresses to join The Envelope to share their insights. Answering our call was Annette Bening, who plays former Hollywood leading lady Gloria Grahame romantically linked to a much younger man in her final years in “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”; Jessica Chastain, who plays real-life poker entrepreneur Molly Bloom targeted by the FBI in “Molly’s Game”; Diane Kruger, who won the Cannes film festival’s top acting prize for her portrayal of a woman whose husband and child have been killed by terrorists in “In the Fade”; Margot Robbie, who stars as disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the quirky “I, Tonya”; Saoirse Ronan, as a Sacramento teen looking for her place in the world in “Lady Bird”; and Kate Winslet, who stars in Woody Allen’s 1950s Coney Island drama “Wonder Wheel.”
With ages ranging from 23 to 59, the women talked with Times film writers Mark Olsen and Amy Kaufman about looking good vs. feeling good, the treatment of women on screen, learning from film roles and finding confidence. Oh, and how the Kardashians helped in prepping for a role.
You can see some videos from the interview on LA Times website, and also on the print version of The Envelope, yesterday. You can find the photoshoot in our gallery.
