Jessica Chastain: Grandma Tells Me to be 'More Sexual'

Jessica Chastain: Grandma Tells Me to be 'More Sexual'

Jessica Chastain makes an appearance on Conan to chat about her new film, The Debt, on Wednesday (August 17).

The 30-year-old actress (in D&G), who also appears in The Help, shared that she’s made 11 films in four years!

“It’s kind of insane … My first film I made four years ago with Al Pacino, [Wilde Salome]. My poor mother. I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m in a movie with Al Pacino. I’m in a movie with Helen Mirren‘ and she tells all her friends and [the movies] don’t come out for a long time,” she shared.

“My mom called me up finally. She was like, ‘What are you doing in L.A. cause it’s not acting!’” she added.

Jessica also shared some fun tidbits about her grandma, who once had the nickname “Motorcycle Mama.”

“She wants me to show like skin skin skin skin. She’s also been like, ‘You need to be more sexual, Jessica,” she shared.

    Jessica is the real deal. Such tremendous talent! I recently both “The Help” and “The Debt” and her performances were brilliant!

  • Miller

    Good advice. I wish more women should follow it and show off her great bodies.

    I’ve always been a big believer in what you don’t see being much sexier than what you do see. Do you know what? I don’t think I’m curvaceous. It’s simply that a lot of other women are really, stupidly tiny. When I meet some of them, I can’t believe it. I know I’ve got curves and big boobs and I’m never, ever going to complain about that.

    She was really endearing in The Help.

    I saw this actress first time in The Tree of Life. Didn’t like the movie that much, but her character was very impressive. She herself also seems very nice woman. Looking forward to see The Help.

    She is gorgeous and everywhere!

    This wasn’t great to hear her awful accent after her brilliant work in “The Help” but I am sure it was shot in a quick timeframe, not her fault.

    She is a talented and beautiful actress. If you’ve seen “Jolene” she has sex scenes with both a man and woman in their 50s. I don’t know why she feels the need to act like a worthless piece of garbage. She should try acting without pandering to men with her body.
