Jessica Chastain Was Surprised By Her Golden Globe Nomination!

The 40-year-old actress, who was just nominated for Best Actress in a dramatic feature for her role in Molly’s Game, says she was surprised she was nominated after being a critic of Harvey Weinstein.

“To be honest, I’m mainly surprised about my nomination. As an actor, I have a lot of fear, thinking that if I speak my mind, or something that feels like it deviates from the norm as a woman, am I going to be made to disappear in my industry?” Jessica told the NY Times.

She added, “When the article came out about Weinstein, I immediately started tweeting. I’ve got a good group of girlfriends on WhatsApp, and I said, ‘I’m really terrified I’m destroying my career right now. I wonder if people will still see me as an actress, and want to work with knowing I have these opinions.’”

Thankfully, her girlfriends made her “understand that the only way to change something that’s wrong is to change it, not ignore it.”

Jessica Chastain Reveals the Moment She Knew She Wanted to Do 'Molly's Game'

Jessica Chastain flashes a smile at the photo call for her movie Molly’s Game at Soho House on Tuesday (December 5) in Berlin, Germany.

The Oscar-nominated actress was joined by the film’s director and writer, Aaron Sorkin.

Jessica was recently asked when she decided to do the film. She responded, “Immediately, it was just Aaron Sorkin. I wanted to work with him because he’s a political filmmaker. He believes all of his stories about justice prevailing against the odds. I’d be happy with a couple scenes in an Aaron Sorkin film. Then I read the story. This man has so much idealism that he decided for his directorial debut, ‘Let’s talk a little bit about patriarchy.’ It was so moving to me because he’s a successful white man in Hollywood. He could have told any story he wanted and everyone would have paid attention. That’s fascinating.”
