Jessica Chastain Says She Feels Depressed When Not Working

Jessica Chastain Says She Feels Depressed When Not Working

Jessica Chastain looks stunning while posing for the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK‘s November 2014 issue.

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

On feeling grief from not working: “I started to feel really negative about myself, down on who I am, and then I realized it’s because I’ve had so much time away from me that I don’t really know what I like to do anymore. I’m out of it now, but there was this feeling of being sad or depressed… wanting to go to another project… Perhaps it is like [an addiction]… maybe the [past] three months were my withdrawal!”

On hating being the center of attention: “Probably there are some people who feel great about themselves and don’t second-guess anything they say or do or wear… But that’s just not me.”

On not having a plan for a different career: “I don’t know what I’d do if I wasn’t acting. It doesn’t mean I have to be in movies or have success… I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have this form of expression because it offers me a freedom I don’t have in my personal life.”

    An attention who poses for paparazzis and is paying Jared for her daily posts here saying that she “hates” being the center of attention? This is a great joke! Is like Kim Kardashian saying that she hates fame. LOL
