Many actresses have played the iconic Marilyn Monroe on screen. Now we can add Jessica Chastain to the list!

The actress has just signed on to play Marilyn in the upcoming biopic, ‘Blonde.’

The Zero Dark Thirty actress is closing a deal to star in director Andrew Dominik’s biopic, reports The Wrap. Brad Pitt’s Plan B and Worldview Entertainment will produce the adaptation of Joyce Carol Oates’s 2001 novel of the same name. The story takes biographical and historical sources to paint an intimate picture of the inner life of Norma Jeane Baker.

Dominik wrote the script for Blonde, which was first announced in 2010. The director previously worked on Killing Them Softly and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

Chastain will be seen in the upcoming Miss Julie, Interstellar and Crimson Peak.

Jessica looked very Marilyn Monroe-ish in ‘The Help.’ I think she’s a great pick for the role, and I can’t wait to see what she does with the role!

Jessica Chastain Covers InStyle UK’s February 2013 Issue and talks Fame and Dating.

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.

On Dating:
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.

On Fame:
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.

On Hair:
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?”‘

Jessica Chastain strips down for British GQ Magazine!

I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Jessica Chastain. She literally exploded into Hollywood a couple of years ago, making a bazillion movies in the span of about two years.

Jessica appears on the January cover of British GQ, promoting her new movie ‘Zero Dark Thiry’. The new Kathryn Bigelow film is about the hunt for Osama Bin Laden, and is getting more buzz than I’ve seen in a long time! According to what I’ve read, Bigelow actually got information from the Obama administration to make the movie as real as possible. Chastain stars as a CIA operative searching for Bin Laden, and from what I’ve read she could be up for her second Oscar for her role.

Here’s more:

On Zero Dark Thirty and Bin Laden: ‘This film will make news. We all think we know how it ended. We don’t. And this movie is about how it really ended. It is shocking. When I first read the script, I was blown away by this woman. The sacrifices she made and what she had to do. It’s something I still get very emotional about. What happens when you live for this one goal? And then you achieve it.’

Relating to CIA agents: ‘I can relate to those aspects of being in the CIA. For the last three years, my life has been work and only work. I do miss my family. I do feel cut off from my friends. Listen, I know being in the CIA is a lot more important that being an actress, but I do feel some empathy with the loneliness: you give away yourself.’

Ginger angst: ‘You Brits are usually so mean to your redheads. Why is that? In America it’s seen as a good thing. Look at Julia Roberts – she’s cool, right? I was working in Thailand and I’d be walking down the street and people – British people – would stop the car and scream, “ginger!” at me.’

On working with Brad Pitt in Tree of Life: ‘He didn’t have a huge entourage, nothing like that. He just showed up on his motorcycle on the very first day and went, “Hi, I’m Brad.” You just heard the rumbling of his bike and he’d appear like James Dean, or Marlon Brando from The Wild One. He was kind, he was generous, he’d never heard of me but he never made me feel less.’

Sex symbol status? ‘I always find sex scenes embarrassing. But at times they are necessary – I get that. It’s a huge compliment when someone says you’re attractive, especially when I was such an awkward kid – I was very tomboyish, with very short red hair, running around with cowboy boots on. So when someone tells me I’m a sex symbol I’m like, “what?”. But I’ll take what I can get. That’ll teach all those boys back in Junior High! In fact, I hope my very first boyfriend, the guy I dated for one month and who broke up with me at the Valentine’s Day Dance – I hope that boy reads this article.’

I can’t wait to see her movie, I think it looks amazing!! Her, I love…. seriously.
