Chastain @ Cannes

I was thrown for a giddy loop while watching the Lawless trailer last week when Jessica Chastain strolled into frame with this sassy rhetorical question:

Well... do I get the job?"

Oh, Jessica. You get every job.

Quoth Movie|Line two weeks back when she finally turned down a role (in something as fame-boosting as Marvel Studio's billion dollar superheroes franchise (Iron Man 3 to be exact):

Asked for their reactions, every other young actress in Hollywood sighed in unison, "Finally.

When I interviewed Jessica Chastain this past Oscar season she was name dropping international auteurs like Olivier Assayas and Michael Haneke as dream directors, as a true cinephile and would be auteur muse would. I guess when you kick things off with stellar co-stars and Terrence Malick you have license to dream big. Will she actually court them (or vice versa) while in the South of France?

Or maybe she's recalibrated to pursue Jacques Audiard (extremely worthy target) who has a festival hit with Rust and Bone. What do you think Jessica Chastain is doing at this EXACT moment over in Cannes? It's 2:15 AM there at this very moment but it's not like anybody sleeps during the festival.

it's 5H30 PM in France so she just wakes up after a crazy night at VIP Room with Tara Reid and Christian Audigier (LOL)

Saw Take Shelter, and thought she should be nominated for that movie instead of The Help! I think she gave new life to the old suffering housewife cliche. She was also great in The Debt as well. Definitely one of my favorite actresses.
Too bad she doesn't have a huge role in "Lawless":(

I would die if she ended up working with Michael Haneke at any point. Or even Assayas. Can you imagine what they'd pull out of her? They're both huge gets, too, for auteur-driven actresses, like fellow diehards Kidman and Cotillard.
