Jessica Chastain is such a babe.
Remember all those rumours that her and Jennifer Lawrence were reportedly ‘feuding’? Well, the Crimson Peak actress has just come out and answered them once and for all.
In a new interview with Haute Living, the 38-year-old has stressed that her and Jen have nothing but love between them. In fact, she’s all about the Hollywood sisterhood.
‘There has been a stigma out there that women don’t work well together’, Jess said. ‘I’ve never seen women like this. I know also during Oscar season [2012-2013] media, because they were trying to get headlines and get clicks, were trying to fabricate a fake rivalry between Jennifer Lawrence and myself and I immediately came out and said this is a media myth that has to stop.’
She continued: ‘The women I know are not like this and I cheer for women to succeed because I know when an actress succeeds that means there’s going to be that many more roles for women because an audience is going to demand it.’
Chastain went on to applaud J-Law’s powerful letter about the Hollywood wage gap, which was published on Lena Dunham’s Lenny newsletter.
‘It was incredible’, she gushed. ‘And I was really disappointed after she wrote it that she got criticism. Sometimes people have that attitude where, “You’re an actress making a lot of money, how dare you complain?”‘
‘We’ve kind of been programmed to be grateful that we’ve gotten this job, so don’t rock the boat. I don’t think that’s fair. Jennifer Lawrence coming out and saying that was really important.’
