    • Yeah, I didn’t know her before that either and she’s been putting in steady work. I don’t think she’s as out there (publicity wise) as much as other actresses, which I really like.

  1. I think she is one of the few who could have thrived in classic Hollywood. One thing I haven’t really seen her in is a comedy, but i’ve only seen 3 of her films.

    • Can’t remember much anymore from Tree of Life (wasn’t a fan of the movie), I was surprised that it was her in The Help, I had seen the movie, but not recognised her.

  2. I have been very impressed by Chastain over the past couple of years, and while she did a good job in Zero Dark Thirty, my fave role of hers still is in The Help.

    Great choice this week. She is so fantastic. I liked her in Take Shelter too (not a lot of people have seen that one)
