Jessica Chastain Uses the Paparazzi to Spread a Message

Jessica Chastain looks beautiful in blue while stepping out of a hotel following a press junket for her movie The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them on Wednesday (August 27) in New York City.

The two-time Oscar-nominated actress used the moment to hold up her iPhone and spread a message – “people need other people,” which is one of the slogans for the charity To Write Love On Her Arms. The organization is dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide.

Jessica was joined at the press junket by her co-stars Jess Weixler and James McAvoy, who also appeared on The Late Show with David Letterman later that day.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Shoshanna dress.

James McAvoy Talks Past Film Roles to 'Nylon Guys': 'I Was Letting Everybody Else Do The Fireworks'

James McAvoy channels his inner bad ass on the cover of Nylon Guys magazine’s September 2014 issue, on newsstands now.

Here’s what the 35-year-old Scottish actor had to share with the mag:

On his career: “For a long time, I was playing the normal guy in an exceptional world, or the normal guy who was in a relationship with someone much more weird and interesting. I was holding the audience’s hand, guiding them into a world they weren’t familiar with, keeping them onside when things got grotesque. Basically I was letting everybody else do the fireworks.”

On his past roles: “The last two or three years have been so unlike what I was doing for the 10 years before them. There’s a part I’ve been offered and really want to do, but I was worried about taking it because the character is a proper mental case. And I feel like it’s been a couple of years of solely playing mental cases.”

Michael Fassbender on James’ X-Men set pranks: “Oh, he’s lethal! You’ll find him hiding underneath cars, waiting for you. He once tried to break into my trailer through the skylight. It’s like being in one of those Pink Panther films, and he’s Cato jumping out of the freezer. Just when you think the day’s over, you come home to find James sitting on your toilet with a BB gun.”

Hugh Jackman Does a Cooler Scooter Race with Jimmy Fallon!

Hugh Jackman drinks some beer while participating in a Cooler Scooter Race during a taping of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday (May 21) in New York City.

The 45-year-old actor was joined by his X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars James McAvoy and Patrick Stewart earlier in the day while attending a SiriusXM Town Hall to chat about their film.

Hugh made an appearance on Live! with Kelly & Michael that morning and talked about going naked in the new film.

“It wasn’t written as a nude scene,” Hugh said. “The scene has Wolverine, because the whole premise of the movie is it has Wolverine traveling back in time to prevent something cataclysmic happening in the future. So I land back in 1973. I wake up — this is what the script says — wake up next to a girl who I don’t remember, and I get out of bed wearing boxer shorts.”

“I don’t know about America, but in Australia, if you are next to a really good looking girl, you’re not getting out with boxer shorts on or briefs, or anything! So, yeah, I went commando and we just went for it,” he added.

Michael Fassbender & James McAvoy Get Dual 'Details' Covers!

Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy look handsome as can be on their dual covers of Details magazine‘s June/July 2014 issue.

Here is what the X-Men: Days of Future Past co-stars had to share with the mag:

James on keeping his personal life private: “You just choose the things you want to keep private and keep them precious. And if you sell them cheaply, then the become cheap to you also.”

Michael on their bromance: “James came in to do the screen test with me, and from there, there was a respect and friendliness between us. But then as it developed, there was more trust, and you realize that the other person’s got your back. Then the trust becomes deeper and it goes somewhere else, for sure.”

James on co-star Jennifer Lawrence: “She’s a demon, period. She can throw a punch, she’s got a good shot, she can drink. She’s proper. I like that girl.”
