The stunning Jessica Chastain, covers the February 2013 InStyle UK issue. She sits down to talk about dating, fame and hair. I love Jessica, she is a great actress and simply gorgeous. I can’t wait to see her in Zero Dark Thirty.
She’s always remained coy about her personal life. But one thing’s for certain; it doesn’t look as though Jessica Chastain will become involved in a Hollywood romance anytime soon.The 35-year-old actress admitted she has a ‘rule’ when it comes to relationships – refusing to date fellow actors. Explaining she once dated someone in the business while she was at drama school, the Zero Dark Thirty said: ‘I have a rule. No actors.
Fame and money have not been my goals. If they had, then this probably would not have happened, because this all happened from independent films. Not big pay cheques. ’Even The Help was an independent film. We were all cast before the success of the novel. Thank God, because they would have never ever given me Celia Foote [her character] had people known how big it would become.’ Although the actress has now become a Hollywood sensation, she admitted she initially struggled to make it on the big screen because of her somewhat unconventional looks.
Jessica added in her interview with InStyle: ‘There were a couple of times when I thought, “Maybe I should dye my hair blonde?” I’m in LA and I’m thinking, “Why can’t I get an audition for a film?” ’Being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn’t know exactly where to put me. Most of the time, it was, “Why is this taking so long?”‘
