Jessica Chastain Hopes 'Miss Sloane' Will Help Affect Society's Perception of Women!

Jessica Chastain is hoping her critically-acclaimed new film Miss Sloane will help affect the way society perceives women!

“It’s crazy how the timing of his film has worked out,” the Oscar-nominated actress recently told THR. “But this film shows a successful, powerful, overprepared, perfectionist woman — with flaws, because she’s allowed those — who is working in D.C. and on an issue that isn’t gender-specific.”

“The more movies that feature parts like this, a thorny, dynamic character who doesn’t have to be America’s sweetheart, I think it’ll help us reimagine the role that women are supposed to take in our society,” Jessica added. “We’re allowed to be ambitious and ask for a pay raise and a promotion — and in fact, we should.”

Last night (December 5), Jessica stunned on the red carpet as she joined director John Madden and her co-stars Sergio Di Zio, Grace Lynn Kung, Alexandra Castillo, Aaron Hale, Raoul Bhaneja and Jack Murray at the premiere of Miss Sloane held at Isabel Bader Theatre in Toronto, Canada.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Givenchy dress paired with Piaget jewelry.

Jessica Chastain Explains Why She's a 'Nasty Woman'

Jessica Chastain is speaking out about being a Nasty Woman, which is of course, a phrase that was coined by Donald Trump in talking about Hillary Clinton.

The phrase “Nasty Woman” has now become an homage to Secretary Clinton!

“I’m a nasty woman. I’m proud to be a nasty woman. It’s a strange thing to say, but I’m not going to let someone make me feel bad for succeeding and using my power,” Jessica told Bustle in a recent interview.

Jessica Chastain Loved Jennifer Lawrence's Pay Gap Essay

Jessica Chastain is opening up about the gender pay gap in Hollywood.

The Oscar-nominated actress was asked about it during a recent interview.

“I love the article that Jennifer Lawrence wrote about the pay gap — I thought it was so important,” Jessica told Business Insider. “I love that people are talking about it. It makes sense that journalists are asking actresses and actors about it because, seriously, producers aren’t the ones doing press.”

Jessica also said, “For me, I’m not in an industry where I’m starving. I’m so lucky to have this job, I’m compensated for my work in an incredible way. But what I do ask is when I join a production I want to make sure that the male actor isn’t making four times my salary, which has been true, or seven times my salary. And if that’s true you go, you know what, I don’t need this job. It’s not really asking for more — it’s asking for something that is respectable and equal to the male actor and you have to go, why are women being valued less?”

Jessica Chastain on Getting Plastic Surgery: 'Who Knows?'

Jessica Chastain gets her close up on the cover of The Edit magazine’s

Here’s what the Miss Sloane star had to share with the mag:

On if she’d have plastic surgery: “Who knows? When I’m 50 or 60, I might. Some people think I’ve had a nose job. I’ve never had anything like that done, but I have no judgement of anyone that does.”

On her flawless skin: “So much comes down to the food you eat and I eat a very clean diet. Being vegan has made a huge difference in my life.”

On her self esteem in high school: “I didn’t like looking different. Being a redhead, you can’t fit into the group. I wanted to be blond so bad. I had really bad self-esteem and I asked my mom if I could dye my hair but she wouldn’t let me.”

On why Donald Trump could be good for feminism: “I think [Trump] being so popular is really an example of why feminism is so important. Unbeknownst to him, he is bringing it all to the forefront, and I am very grateful for him in doing that. You have to look at the world in a positive way otherwise you just want to cry.”

Jessica Chastain Is No Longer a Red Head, Sports Brunette Hair for 'Molly's Game'!

Jessica Chastain is no longer a redhead – at least while she’s filming her new movie Molly’s Game!

The star of the film was seen on set in Toronto, Canada on Monday (November 28) sporting a new brunette hair color and a low cut top. Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, Michael Cera, and more also star in the Aaron Sorkin drama, which will hit theaters next year.

Jessica has been known for her red hair for years! “As a child I didn’t like it because it made me different. But as I grew older and more comfortable, it became a badge of honor,” Jes told InStyle back in 2013.

Jessica Chastain Explains Why She Can't Watch 'The Tree of Life'

Jessica Chastain is opening up about the reason she has trouble watching one of her earlier films, The Tree of Life.

The 39-year-old Miss Slone actress recently revealed that The Tree of Life – which she starred in alongside Brad Pitt back in 2011 – is one of her most passionate projects to date.

“I haven’t been able to watch it since it came out because it’s so emotional for me,” Jessica told Huffington Post about the Terrence Malick-directed flick. “I was playing a character who was the embodiment of love, so every day was just filled with so much joy. I was meditating on expanding my heart space and living with an open heart. Of course it affects you and how you treat other people. I’m heartsick for it.”

Jessica also shared that she has not seen Terrence‘s documentary Voyage of Time, which uses footage from The Tree of Life.

“From the very beginning, Terry had said Voyage of Time was supposed to come out at the same time as Tree of Life, so we were all prepared for that movie,” Jessica added. “I’ve been shooting in Santa Fe and I haven’t had an opportunity to see that movie, but Tree of Life is one of my favorite films. It was the high point of my life.”

Jessica Chastain Dishes on Getting Into Character for 'Miss Sloane'

Jessica Chastain grins while getting her hair and makeup touched up during her appearance on the Today show on Friday (November 25) in New York City.

The 39-year-old actress was there to promote her new movie Miss Sloane.

The political drama tells story of a brilliant lobbyist (Jessica) who is notorious for her unparalleled talent and desire to win, even when it puts her own career at risk.

During the appearance, Jessica opened up about getting into character as a powerful female in a male-dominated industry.

“I met 11 women lobbyists and what really struck me about them was how powerful they were even, almost, before they entered the room,’ Jessica said. “Seven of the 11 were wearing black nail polish, and they carried this energy with them to contend with what they are doing. I found that less than 10 percent of lobbyists are women so I think that they really have to show up.”

“As an actress you don’t get many roles where you’re playing a female character that’s ambitious and a perfectionist and still flawed,” she added. “You see men play these roles all the time. So it’s good to have Elizabeth Sloane there, in the world.”
