Jessica Chastain: Five Years Ago, 'People Kept Telling Me I Wasn't Pretty Enough'
Here’s what the A Most Violent Year actress had to share with the mag:
On being told she’s attractive: “Only in the past five years have people been telling me I’m attractive. Before then, I wasn’t getting parts because people kept telling me I wasn’t pretty enough.”
On her hair: “People would tell me to dye my hair blond when I first started auditioning. Funny how defined we are by how we present ourselves.”
On having an assistant: “I do have an assistant now. And I do feel very fancy saying that. But it’s just so that I don’t have to go to sleep worrying about everything because I know that she’s in charge of the schedule. She did go out and get me a chai this morning.”
