Jessica Chastain Covers 'Marie Claire' December 2012

Jessica Chastain strikes a pose for the December 2012 issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands Tuesday (November 20).

Here is what the Oscar nominated actress had to share with the mag:

On her focus while attending Julliard: “I never wanted to be a movie star. I wanted to be an actor. I don’t really drink, and I’ve never been to a rave. I used to cut school to read Shakespeare, not to make out in the park.”

On how success has not changed her lifestyle: “I used to have a lot of anxiety about how I was going to stay afloat, because as soon as I graduated, I never asked my parents for money. I always supported myself through acting and would make money last a long time. I understand the value of money, and I’m not an impulsive buyer. I bought a new laptop three years ago, and before I bought it, I spent a month thinking about buying it. So my lifestyle hasn’t changed, except my anxiety about paying the rent is gone.”

On meeting men: “I’m very shy when it comes to guys.” One of her friends said to her, ‘Now that you’re successful, you have to be more overt with men, you have to make it very clear that you’re interested, otherwise they won’t [approach you].’ – “I like to be wooed, but I’ve had to be more outwardly available, I guess.”

  • http://dlookingo rachel

    She is almost 40 but she is shy around guys.

  • Coco

    I love her. She is a great actress!

  • Lauren

    She’s a little too old to play the shy, awkward card.

  • essie

    they shoulda filled in her eyebrows

  • ha ha

    she wasn’t shy around (engaged) Tom Hardy…..

  • KissThis

    What a terrible cover! Why would they make her look like this? Totally disproportionate. Sad thing is, she is so gorgeous. They didn’t need to photoshop!

  • superstar????

    really??? people barely know her and now she’s already a superstar.

  • see

    so badly photoshopped
    the head is obviously from another picture, and got the wrong size when plastered on this photo
    you cant take a angle body shot and put on a head from a straight forward body shot onto it without some serious tweaking, it just looks weird

  • Chris

    “I’m very shy when it comes to guys.”
    HAHAHAHAHAHA
    Joke of the day! LOL

    Come on! You’re not shy when you’re flirting in front of the cameras with every men you works with, especially the engaged and married ones. You’re just a wh*re pretending to be innocent! You’re not fooling anyone!

  • Sammy

    “Wow, why am I not dating?” – Well, you’re not dating cause everyone knows how sl*t you are. Guys only want this kind of woman to f*ck, nothing else.
