Jessica Chastain has been a powerhouse both in front and behind the camera as an actress and producer since she exploded onto the film scene with her breakout year in 2011, which resulted in her first Oscar nomination for “The Help.” A decade later, here she is now, with her third Oscar nomination, this time for Best Actress in a film she produced and developed for ten years, “The Eyes Of Tammy Faye.” Following her Screen Actors Guild win for Best Actress (and as of today, Critics Choice winner now as well), Jessica was kind enough to take the time to talk with me about her career, how it feels like it’s culminated in this moment of recognition for her, her thoughts on the current status of female-led stories in the industry today, working with her co-star Andrew Garfield, and more!
