Jessica Chastain graces the cover of Los Angeles Times magazine’s September 4th issue.
The 30-year-old The Help actress is featured on one of four covers, which also feature True Blood‘s Deborah Ann Woll, Fright Night‘s Imogen Poots, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World‘s Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Here is what the ladies had to share with the mag:
Jessica on how she approaches each role: “You know, over the past four years, I’ve made 11 films, and I always approach things with the idea of, ‘Who’s going to be my teacher on this set? What am I gonna learn?’ I never think about how much money I’m going to make or if a movie is going to make me famous. I just think, ‘How is this a master class for me right now?’”
Deborah on still going for auditions: “Yes, True Blood is a hit, and more people are aware of me, but I still audition for everything—I just get better auditions. On the other hand, I’m not being handed anything. I’m still workin’ pretty hard.”
Imogen on not being chased by paparazzi: “Oh my God, the paparazzi here have no clue. I’ve never had a run-in. I’m sure they just think I’m some sort of road sign.”
Mary on her character in the upcoming remake of The Thing: “I don’t have a lot of friends who relate to the girls walking around in Daisy Dukes. I don’t relate to it, and I don’t relate to the rom-com girl crying into her Ben & Jerry’s, either. But this character is strong, smart and takes care of herself. When I saw the script, I knew it was something I could not say no to.”
