Two time academy award nominee, Jessica Chastain is not only a brilliant actress but also one of Hollywood’s luckiest ladies when it comes to her male co-stars. Jessica has starred opposite some of the sexiest men in Hollywood; Brad Pitt in Tree of Life, Tom Hardy in Lawless and James McAvoy in The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby to name a few and now one of her next jobs is a movie co-starring Charlie Hunnam.
The red headed beauty will get her piece of Fifty Shades in the upcoming Guillermo Del Toro horror film Crimson Peak, also starring Tom Hiddleston and Mia Wasikowska.
Jessica has admitted that she’s never before met her soon to be Sons of Anarchy co-star nor has she read Fifty Shades of Grey. She has got to be one of the very few that hasn’t read the novels but she’s sure heard of them.
While promoting her new drama, The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby, at the TFF she innocently commented saying “I heard there’s like steamy sex,”
Well you heard right Miss Chastain, it’s quite steamy and so is your co-star. But I’m sure she’ll find that out for herself once she lays eyes on the future Mr. Christian Grey.
Jessica who has been in a long term relationship with Italian fashion executive Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo later jokingly asked “Are you telling me I’m going to fall in love with Charlie Hunnam on set?”
Maybe not in love Jessica but you will definitely find him sexy, like the rest of us. Crimson Peak won’t begin shooting until February of 2014.
Her current film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby was maybe one of the most unconventional films at this year’s TFF. The film tells the story of a couple (Chastain and McAvoy) whose marriage falls apart after the death of their two-month-old baby. The film is split into two parts, one telling the story from the wife’s point of view with the other from the husband’s. This is the directorial debut of
Ned Bensonwho started writing “Him” eight years ago. The movie is really two films, which were screened back to back, in different orders at the festival. At Monday’s premiere at the TFF, for example, “Him” was first, while the following day, it was “Her.” The film received rave reviews from audiences at the festival and was picked up for more than $3 million Weinstein’s CO.
David Glasser says the company intends to release the film as two distinct films in time for the 2014 awards season.
The film also stars Bill Hader, Viola Davis, Ciaran Hinds, William Hurt, Isabelle Huppert and Jess Weixler.
