There are more pictures of her from Vogue ItaliaÃÂ below. Here is a new interview:
Jessica ChastainÃÂ already has a handful of films under her belt and an Oscar nomination. Now she is preparing another five movies. But she defines herself as “just a normal girl”.
“It is a profession that allows me to get to know lives and experiences that otherwise I could never discover. A fire burning inside of me, that regenerates me for each role. This is the reason why I chose to be an actress: I always play different roles. If we take into consideration the work I did inWilde Salome,ÃÂ The Tree of Life,ÃÂ The HelpÃÂ andThe Debt, you can see that my women donÃ¢â¬â¢t just live in different historical periods, they also have opposite personalities. I grew up with American cinema, especially that ofAl PacinoÃÂ and the seventies, even though I have to say that I admire the work of you Europeans”.
JessicaÃÂ discovered foreign cinema from across the Atlantic inÃÂ New York,ÃÂ when she studied at the prestigiousÃÂ Juilliard School.ÃÂ “Before coming to New York, I had never had the possibility to come close to creativity of that kind. No one in my family had ever had anything to do with that environment, therefore at my audition at theÃÂ JuilliardÃÂ I risked a lot, especially on an emotional level. When they accepted me I found myself in another world”.
“I have always known I wanted to be an actress, but myÃÂ New Yorkexperience made me realize that my desire had nothing to do with becoming famous or making money, I was interested in exploring the human soul, its complexity, I wanted to work to understand something about life and myself.ÃÂ Being an actress means being in another personÃ¢â¬â¢s shoes and therefore understanding what the person whose role you play feels; but alsoÃÂ connecting with other human beings, as a mark of profound professional intimacy, that often touches the soul”.
