Jessica recently talked about the depiction of torture in her highly anticipated film Zero Dark Thirty.

“Those scenes were tough to film and we filmed that section in a Jordanian prison. We weren’t on a soundstage in Los Angeles. It creates an atmosphere that is absolutely in those scenes. That was a tough week. [But] it’s part of the history of the characters,” Jessica shared.

Jessica added, “Instead of looking at it and making my own judgements, I try to look at it as part of the character. This is the introduction of a character who was recruited right out of school and she shows up in her suit thinking it’s going to be a more traditional interrogation. And from where she starts to where she ends at the end of the film is very important.”

FYI: Jessica is wearing J Brand’s Bambi Coat in Oatmeal.
