Jessica Chastain on fame, privacy, and career goals

Jessica Chastain on fame, privacy, and career goals

Jessica has some valuable advice for fellow stars

Jessica Chastain doesn’t quite “get” why fellow celebrities have a tough time getting some privacy as she claims she can fully keep a low profile even in public spaces. The actress encourages others to know their surroundings and not always attend popular “celebrity haunts.”

She told the new issue of C magazine: “In this industry you can set your own privacy. If I go to certain restaurants with my boyfriend I know we’re going to get photographed.

But when the public is involved in your relationship … they can demand or ask questions because they feel like they have an ownership of it, because you sold it. That means they have a say in your private life.”

And the star also discussed what she looks to get out of her movie roles, which is something much more than a mere paycheck.

“My experience with making movies is that I want to walk away from each role, and each set, having learned something and grown as a person. That’s really important for me when choosing a role: What am I going to learn and what am I going to gain from this experience?”

Jessica wasn’t always interested in acting and revealed her grandmother ultimately convinced her to pursue such a career.

She shared: “I had a very active imagination, and then my grandma took me to a play. She made it clear that this was a professional theatre company, that this was their job – she wanted me to know that it was a treat So then I saw a little girl on stage and I was like, ‘OK, so this is totally my job too! This is what I’m going to do. I’m ready.’

My poor mum – I was always like, ‘Mom, can you take me to LA so I can be in commercials?’ I don’t think my parents thought that was even a real possibility!”
