Jessica Chastain Covers 'InStyle UK' February 2013

Jessica Chastain Covers 'InStyle UK' February 2013

Jessica Chastain is stunning on the cover of InStyle UK‘s February 2013 issue.

Here’s what the Zero Dark Thirty actress had to share with the mag:

On being a redhead in Hollywood: “There were a couple of times when I thought, ‘Maybe I should dye my hair blonde?’ Being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn’t know exactly where to put me.”

On not courting fame: “There are some actors, who are very, very famous, who know what they’re doing. They court it. Like Elizabeth Taylor. Richard Burton. It’s something that you woo. Fame and money have not been my goals. If they had, then this probably would not have happened, because this all happened from independent films. Not big pay cheques. Even The Help was an independent film. We were all cast before the success of the novel. Thank God, because they would have never ever given me [the part of] Celia Foote had people known how big it would become.”

On not dating other actors: “I have a rule. No actors. I realized I wanted just to be able to hang out with someone… And I didn’t want to talk about the business, first of all. I love movies. But I love talking about them like when I was 15 years old. I’m a film fan, but I don’t want to talk about auditions or what movie I’m gonna do. I find that so boring.”

    I LOVE HER ! You can tell she’s really this genuwine/down to earth person and it’s not just an image she’s trying to sell like oh so many actors/actresses nowadays ! She better not change … ever !

  • Agree

    She’s really really beautiful – probably one of the most unique and striking actresses in HW at the moment. But wtf is she doing in wearing leather? I thought she was an ethical vegan. Guess it’s hard to pull off if you’re doing photoshoots all the time.

  • thema

    i like her!

  • Ali

    I think she looks cute on the cover. Guys, what were the comments that she made that other people said was “racist”? I read it in another article but I searched and didn’t find anything. Thanks :)

  • F Off

    @Ali: Stop trying to create drama.

  • Lozi

    @Ali: She didn’t make any ‘racist’ comments. Its just one troll who makes many fake ID to trash her. They called me a racist for saying that other celebs are worse then her. Jessica Chastain is trying for an Oscar nom. Of course she will do these promotions to make the list. She is a wonderful actress.

  • Lozi

    @Ali: Its only one person who comes to trash her. Ignore # 5

  • Lozi

    @Ali: Its one person who comes to trash her and call her ‘racist. See check it out. Its the same writing.

  • V

    Beautiful cover, really beautiful

  • how old is she???

    Sorry, but i was really turned off when she lied about her age.That for me is deception.She should have been honest from the start. I don’t believe, she does not want fame and money.She will not be famous anyway, she just does not have the appeal and charisma.She is a good actress but not a superstar material.

  • assuri

    Well that’s a retouched cover if I ever saw one.

  • zzzzz

    So sick and tired of her always mentioning how hard it is being redhead etc. And what is that “not dating actors rule” I think it is more on no famous actors pay attention to her.Maybe b-list, that is why she is not interested.

  • jane

    no sex appeal at all.

  • omg

    The cover is so photoshopped, it hardly resembles JC. If someone is good looking as she is, wth do they need to do this,? It’s ridiculous!

  • Cate

    I enjoy reading her interviews. She seems so genuine and you can tell that after having to struggle for so long to get a big break she appreciates where she is now.

  • ha ha

    No actors, didnt she hook up with Tom Hardy?

  • Sater

    Don’t you love it when they take these girl-next-door types and photoshop them then tell us how stunning they are. Please.

    To the person asking about her age…she’s 35. She was born in 1977, according to her classmates, including American Idol alum., Mandisa who went to school with her. Her high school senior photo is dated to 1995.

    She lied and said she was born in 1981.

  • Frozoid

    @how old is she???: You said “She will not be famous.” Huh? She already is.

  • Ali

    Thanks @Lozi (#6). I didn’t know that it was just a rumor, that why I asked :) And to #5: Asking is not trying to create drama.

  • http://dlookingo rachel

    She will be hasbeen soon and kinda old to be a superstar now

  • Gelia

    @Sater: Yes you are corrct she is 35. Born in 1977. I mean I like her and her lying didn’t really change my view of her but when I saw her, I knew she was around 34-35. 1981? Most of the actors born in that year don’t look 30 or 31. They look young those 80′s born kids.

  • Hamlet

    Get over yourself, #10

    Jessica Chastain: Another day of my Oscar campaign in JJ

  • Mich

    @ha ha: Her “rule” is not date actors, she didn’t say anything about flirt and f*uck with them.

  • My Jess

    She looks so beautiful on that magazine cover,she is gorgeous talented and humble!!!

  • Haha

    @ha ha: Haha,no way!!!Tom is just too blind to see gorgeous Jess

  • ha~

    excuse me but i left a comment on her last thread about her racist comments which she did make on chelsea lately, and NO i wasn’t the only one so stop your bullsh<t.

  • Uglyinsides

    She’s such a fake wannabe. Her hair was dyed blonde for The Help or did she forget? I’m not in it for the fame or money but let me do multiple magazine covers and sign a fashion contract (Give me a freakin’ break). I haven’t liked her since she blatantly lied about her age.

  • Christina

    Seriously? This never-date-other-actors-rule never works out. Welcome to Hollywood.

  • Kate

    Everything about her is so fake and I don’t even know if she is really redhead or this is just another lie! lol
    Oh please! stop playing the victim all the time, complaining for being a redhead, saying that you don’t want to be famous, well, stay away from Hollywood and go back to the amateur theather if you don’t want to be famous, nobody is putting a gun at your head and obligating you to make Hollywood movies.
    Julianne Moore is a redhead too and I never saw her playing the victim and say that Hollywood didn’t know what to do with her because of the color of her hair, so stop with this B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T!
    Black and latin actors are stereotyped in Hollywood for ages, it’s ridiculous pretend that a white woman is more stereotyped than these people. The world doesn’t revolve around you and you’re not the biggest sufferer in the world!

  • ?!!!!

    @ha ha: No way,where have you heard such thing?!

  • wtf

    oh STFU who the hell brought race into this besides yourself? Moron. Women..YES INCLUDING WHITE WOMEN are stereotyped aswell. Morons like you with your pity parties about ‘black and latinos’ boohoo.
