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.
