Jessica Chastain Explains Why Nudity in American Films Usually Bothers Her

Jessica Chastain is opening up about doing nudity on screen and her thoughts on the differences between American cinema and European cinema.

The Oscar-nominated actress goes nude in the movie Salome, which was her first starring role before she broke into the industry.

“I have no issues with nudity, especially in a lot of European cinema that I adore, but I find that in American cinema, the idea of nudity has always bothered me. I realized why: For me, I’m uncomfortable with nudity when it feels like it’s not the person’s decision to be naked, when it’s something that has been put upon them,” Jessica said in an interview with Vulture.

She added, “In a way, I see that as like a victimization. It trains an audience that exploiting someone in their body should be normal for nudity, when I think the opposite. When people are completely in control of their decisions, that is a really exciting thing. I love the human form — male nudity, female nudity, I’m all about it. I had to get to that place where, for me, it was my decision.”

Jessica Chastain Donates Money to Woman Who Criticized Her Feminist Views

Jessica Chastain is proving why she is one of our favorite people in Hollywood!

The Oscar-nominated actress has been very vocal about her feminist views in recent years and has done some great activism work as well. On International Women’s Day, she posted an Instagram photo of herself where a “We Should Be Feminists” shirt and captioned it, “FEMINISM: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes.”

A woman named Karin Schulz responded to the post and criticized Jessica for being pro-choice and calling herself a feminist. “Yes feminist that believe in God and stand up for The Unborn. I would be for that kind of feminist,” she wrote.

Jessica responded to the comment and said, “Yes you can decide what is right for you. I am pro-choice and I believe that everyone has the right to make their own decision. I read about your journey to become a mother and it broke my heart. I hope that your dream will come true in 2018! Much love to you.”

And that incredibly kind comment wasn’t all. Jessica went on Karin‘s GoFundMe page and donated $2,000 to help the woman pay for infertility treatments not covered by her insurance company.

Jessica Chastain Cut From Xavier Dolan's 'The Death & Life of John F. Donovan'

Director Xavier Dolan has announced that he has cut Jessica Chastain out of his upcoming film, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

“What you need to hear from me is that Jessica Chastain‘s character, after what was a long period of reflection, had to be cut from the film. It was an extremely difficult decision to make. I feel, toward Jessica, a very sincere love, and a great admiration. The decision was editorial and narrative, in that it has nothing to do with a performance, and everything to do with a character, and the compatibility of its storyline,” the 28-year-old director explained on Instagram. “This ‘villain’ subplot, albeit funny and entertaining, didn’t feel like it belonged to the rest of the story, which ended up not being on heroes or their nemesis, bur [sic] rather on childhood, and its dreams.”

Xavier continued, “Jessica has, since the very beginning, defended this project, and defended me on so many occasions. She is a terrific actress, a politically engaged artist, what is more, who relentlessly champions the causes she believes in. She is respected by her peers, and beloved by her public.”

Jessica was supposed to play a tabloid editor in the film also starring Kit Harington, Natalie Portman, Bella Thorne, Susan Sarandon, Thandie Newton, and more.
