Alexander Wang X H&M Launch

The woman’s on a MISSION!

Jessica Chastain took to Instagram yesterday to post a picture of her grandmother’s dog, Livvy, who was apparently stolen from a McDonald’s in Vallejo, California. And kidnappers? She’s offering a reward!

“For those of you who love animals, you must understand how devastated my grandma is,” she wrote, @-replying McDonald’s in the caption for good measure.

If you’re reading this in California, and you have any information about Livvy, do the right thing and take a bite out of crime with crimefighter herself Jessica Chastain!

Jessica Chastain is proud of Jennifer Lawrence for speaking up

Jessica Chastain is proud of Jennifer Lawrence for speaking up

Just recently, Jennifer Lawrence posted a column for Lena Dunham’s “Lenny” where she talked about the sexist wage gap in Hollywood. People began to listen and support Jennifer and now Jessica Chastain says that she’s proud of her for speaking up!

Jennifer said that when the Sony hack happened, it was revealed just how much more her “American Hustle” male co-stars were making. She didn’t fault Sony, but faulted herself for failing as a negotiator.

Jessica said, “I’m proud of her. Sometimes when you’re doing well, you’re afraid to say something’s wrong because then there’s going to be a bunch of people out there going, ‘Okay, well, you’re a big old movie star.’ But it doesn’t matter.”

She went on to say, “There’s no excuse. There’s no reason why she should be doing a film with other actors and get paid less than her male co-stars. It’s completely unfair. It’s not right. It’s been happening for years and years and years. I think it’s brave to talk about it. I think everyone should talk about it.”

Jessica Chastain calls female action heroes oversexualized

Jessica Chastain calls female action heroes oversexualized

Jessica Chastain is taking aim at movie producers, claiming that they’ve made female action heroes in movies way too sexualized. She has a point, no?

She revealed, “If you look at films like ‘Elektra’ and ‘Aeonflux’, the problem that studios have is that they try to make kickass women very sexualized. They have to be in some catsuit. But if you look at the most incredible female roles, like Ripley in ‘Alien’, she is a very sexy woman but she’s not wearing a lot of makeup. She’s in a t-shirt and jeans. What’s sexy about her is how capable she is. Same with Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Hunger Games’, she’s not wearing a catsuit, either.”

She went on to say that movie studios are probably doing that because they think they’re giving the audience what it wants. She added, “Studios have misjudged it in the past, and thought audiences weren’t interested in seeing a woman in an action role who’s a capable, intelligent woman and isn’t only leaning on her sex.”

Jessica Chastain Stands Behind Rose McGowan Against Hollywood Sexism

Alexander Wang X H&M Launch

Rose McGowan isn’t the only actress brave enough to call out Hollywood sexism!

We’ve been doing lots of stories on the Charmed star lately, especially reporting on how the actress shared an objectifying casting note for an upcoming audition that encouraged her to wear clothes that “showed off cleavage.” Then, she got fired from her agency for calling it out!

Now, more women are rallying with the star in hopes of shedding light on the industry’s disappointing and detrimental misogynistic standards, including Jessica Chastain!

On Thursday, Women and Hollywood editor Melissa Silverstein took to Twitter to stand behind McGowan in the wake of her comments, writing:

“I stand with @Rosemcgowan who is pulling back the screen on sexism in hollywood. It is so needed. Thank you.”

Then, Chastain chimed in!

“As do I. Her treatment confirms the misogyny underpinning the industry. She should be celebrated for speaking out.”

And that’s just what we’re doing here at ICYDK, too. Celebrating bravery and change- progress into a less misogynistic period in entertainment history. Thank you, women! You rock.
