Jessica Michelle Chastain (born March 24, 1977) is an American actress and film producer. If you had asked who Jessica Chastain was in 2010, cinephiles would have had no ready answer. If you asked the same question in 2012, the results would be very different. The intervening year saw no less than seven films featuring her, and transformed her into the personification of the breakout actress, and invited comparisons to both Kate Winslet and a young Meryl Streep among reviewers and filmgoers. She's best known as Maya in Zero Dark Thirty, Murph in Interstellar, Lucille in Crimson Peak and Commander Lewis in The Martian.

Previously, Chastain got to act thanks to a scholarship by the late Robin Williams at Julliard and had laboured for years in minor parts on television and in theatre, before working with Al Pacino in a stage performance of Oscar Wilde's Salome, where she played the title character. More roles followed, and due to a number of release delays, Chastain ended up having a very busy 2011 indeed, to the point where critics were split over which of her many performances was most deserving of recognition. The ultimate winner was The Help, the one that had made the most money, which earned her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. She netted her second Academy Award nomination the very next year, this time for Best Leading Actress for her starring role in Zero Dark Thirty.

Don't worry if you confuse Bryce Dallas Howard with Jessica, it's not the first time. Though both actresses and a song established their differences.

Married to her boyfriend since 2012 fashion designer Gian Luca on June 10, 2017, much to the delight of her fans.
