Her face rings a bell to you? Of course it does. The hot ginger is everywhere lately, and she seems to be the topic of everyone’s conversations. Yves Saint Laurent’s muse ,you have seen her sensually rolling around in purple paint in the ad for the new perfume Manifesto. And on the 13th of January last year she won the Golden Globe for best actress in the film “Zero Dark Thirty”.
Jessica Chastain (real name M. Howard) was born in Sacramento, California on the 24th of March 1977. Passionate about dance, she enters Julliard School in New York where she will learn theatre. She appears in many TV shows : “ER”, “Veronica Mars”, or “New York cour de justice” (Trouver le vrai nom en anglais de la série là) and does her debut in the cinema industry in Dan Ireland’s “Jolene” for which she wins the Interpretation Prize at the Seattle Film Festival.
In 2009 she plays Salome in Al Pacino’s “Wild Salome” inspired by the work of Oscar Wilde, but 2011 is definitely her year. She shines in “The Tree of Life” next to Brad Pitt and will be praised for it at the Cannes Film Festival. She also plays in “The Help” and “Coriolanus”.
Still not realizing what is happening to her she jokes : “Usually an actress has to do porn to be that famous, I never would have thought that my films would get me so many compliments”. The ginger is definitely not done impressing us.
