Somebody call the fire department because Jessica Chastain is on fire. From her fierce red hair to her incredible resume, this beauty is taking Hollywood by storm. Starring alongside legends and nabbing a couple Oscar nominations tend to do that to a person’s career.
Since 2011, Chastain has steadily worked her way to the top of the A-List. She received an Oscar nomination for her role in The Help and wowed audiences and critics alike for her work in The Tree of Life and Wilde Salome. Throughout 2012, she starred in several more excellent films including Lawless and Zero Dark Thirty, which got her nominated for another Oscar.
After her Zero Dark Thirty success came her performance in the horror film Mama. After Mama knocked Zero Dark Thirty from the top spot to second, Chastain became the first woman in roughly 50 years to have the leading role in two top movies at the box office.
Aside from her outstanding acting abilities, Chastain is a classic beauty who rocks her trademark red hair so well that the fashion world has taken notice. She's appeared on Forbes Best Dressed List, topped Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List, has the Sexiest Smile according to Victoria Secret’s “What is Sexy” list, won the Next Future Icon award at the Elle Style Awards and was the runner-up for Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive.
There's no stopping this woman’s incredible rise in film and fashion. Chastain is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood, and her fellow leading ladies better step up their game.
Why she’s hot!
With beautiful eyes, a killer smile and a fantastic figure, it’s no wonder the actress brings in fashion and beauty awards like it’s a piece of cake.
What kind of man does she like?
It's rumored that Chastain is dating The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston. If not, she would probably be after someone as dedicated to the arts as she is. Chastain is also a vegan, so you'd have to give up the steak and hamburgers for a date with her.
Something you should know…
She likes a challenge and is not afraid of failure. “If I don't continue to challenge myself and risk failure, I have no business being an actor,” Chastain said.
