Cate last year, she was going to play in The Martian. She was going to be the captain, Jessica [Chastain] doesn’t know that,” director Ridley Scott explained.

He added that unfortunately, “She couldn’t do it, she couldn’t fit it in.”

We think Jessica did an excellent job in the film instead!

FYI: Cate is carrying a Tod’s handbag.
