Earlier this year, Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain declared a strict ‘no actors’ dating policy after a frightening experience with paparazzi. Well, looks like this ginger beauty has broken her new vow (already) with War Horse star Tom Hiddleston!
“Tom is taken with Jess and it’s serious,’ says a friend. “Before Christmas she visited Britain to stay with him and meet all his family for the first time.”
Wow! We aren’t sure how new this is, but it sounds pretty serious to me. But we understand why Jess would want to stay away from actors. She says in an interview via Dailymail:
“I have dated an actor before, at Juilliard, but since then, I’ve only been on a couple of dates with one and I was so freaked out someone was going to take a picture of us, because they were famous.”
Another reason, she said, was she wanted something to talk about other than movie making and work. She recalled: “I realised I wanted just to be able to hang out with someone… And I didn’t want to talk about the business, first of all.”
Chastain seems pretty practical, in that way! Still, there’s no getting in the way of chemistry. We also most likely will not be hearing much of this new romance between Jessica, 35, and Tom, 31. Jessica’s notoriously private about her love life.
“In this business it’s very tough to maintain a relationship because we’re like gipsies — always on the move,” she has said. “And the more you share your relationship with the world the less special it becomes. So I always try to keep my dating life quiet.”
Insightful, Miss Chastain! Best of luck with your new man!
