Jessica Chastain Biography

Jessica Michelle Chastain (born March 24, 1977)is an American actress. Chastain played guest roles in several television shows before making her feature film debut in the 2008 independent film Jolene. In 2011, she gained wide public recognition for her starring roles in seven film releases; her performance as Celia Foote in The Help was particularly well received and earned her a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, as well as Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild Award and BAFTA nominations in the same category. For her lead performance in the controversial 2012 military thriller film Zero Dark Thirty, Chastain received wide critical acclaim and won the Broadcast Film Critics Association Award for Best Actress and the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Drama, and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.

In 2012, Time magazine featured her as one of the "100 Most Influential People in the World". Chastain's performances in Zero Dark Thirty and in the 2013 horror film Mama led film critic Richard Roeper to describe her as "one of the finest actors of her generation.

Early life and education

Chastain was born in Sacramento, California. She was raised by her mother, Jerri, a vegan chef, and her stepfather, Michael Hastey, a fireman. She is close to her grandmother Marilyn, who attended the Oscars with her in 2012 and 2013.

She graduated from El Camino High School in Sacramento in 1995 and attended Sacramento City College, where she was a member of the debate team (1996–1997). In 1998, she appeared as Juliet in a production of Romeo and Juliet staged by TheatreWorks, a professional theater company in the San Francisco Bay Area. Chastain then attended the Juilliard School in New York City as a member of the Drama Division's Group 32 (1999–2003), which also included Michael Urie and Jess Weixler. The funding which made it possible for her to attend was provided through a scholarship by Robin Williams. She was an active participant in the drama department and starred in several theatrical productions and student film projects. She graduated from Juilliard with a B.F.A. degree in 2003.

Career (2004–2009)

Shortly before her drama school graduation, Chastain attended a showcase for final-year students in Los Angeles and was promptly signed to a holding deal by television producer John Wells. She relocated to California, took up residence in Venice Beach, and started auditioning for jobs, and was discovered by talent agent Hylda Queally.Facing early difficulty in even getting auditions for roles, she recalled that "being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn't know exactly where to put me."In her television debut, The WB network's pilot remake of the 1960s gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, she portrayed Carolyn Stoddard, who was originated by Nancy Barrett.Directed by P. J. Hogan, the pilot did not live up to the network's expectations and the series was eventually not picked up for broadcast. Chastain later appeared in a guest stint on the medical drama series ER, which marked a professional watershed as she subsequently found a niche playing eccentric characters in television."I did a job on ER as a psychotic woman, and after that got a lot of jobs in TV where I wasn't the normal one," she later said. "I played a lot of girls who had something off. Maybe they'd been the victim of some horrible accident. Or they were crazy."

Personal life

Chastain is estranged from her biological father and has refused to confirm various news reports on his identity. In an interview with Vogue in 2013, she stated that no father is listed on her birth certificate and she considers Michael Hastey, her stepfather, to be her father.

Chastain is the eldest of five siblings; she has two younger sisters and two younger brothers. In 2014 she revealed that her involvement with the non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms was prompted by the suicide of one of her sisters.

Chastain is a vegan.[63] As of January 2013, she lives in NoHo, a neighborhood in Manhattan, with her dog Chaplin, a three-legged rescue dog.

She was in a long-term relationship with film director Ned Benson before breaking up in 2010. As of 2012, she is in a relationship with Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, an Italian-born executive for French fashion brand Moncler.
