We caught Jessica Chastain making her way through LAX aiport en route to NYC last night, and the actress doesn't look like jet lag has caught up to her yet, but we have a feeling it's going to with all the promotional appearances she has to make for her new film!
The beautiful redhead plays a CIA operative searching for Bin Laden in her new flick Zero Dark Thirty, which is already generating Oscar buzz. Director Kathryn Bigelow apparently got actual information from the Obama administration to make the movie as real as possible.
Miss Chastain covers the January issue of GQ Britain, and in it she chats all about her new role!
- "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 to you when you live for this one goal? And then you achieve it," she explained about her connection to the character.
The Oscar nominee sexes it up on the cover of the glossy, but she insists she doesn't consider herself to be a Hollywood beauty.
- "I always find sex scenes embarassing. 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," she added.
This sexy snapshot pretty much cements your title as a Hollywood sex symbol, Jessica!
Do you think Jessica Chastain is a sex symbol?
