My love for Jessica Chastain hit critical mass this morning after I tripped and fell onto her new Interview Magazine cover story by Craig McDean. Who Framed Roger Rabbit much? This girl is too much. But what really tickled my fancy place was Chastain's cutesy interview with gal pal/fangirl Mindy Kaling.
Chastain: She finds love at the end, though. As crazy as she is during the beginning of the film, suddenly, at the end, she finds her groove. Barbara Hershey's character in Hannah and Her Sisters, and Michael Caine, too ... my God. Barbara Hershey is so incredible because we watch these characters do really bad things. She sleeps with her sister's husband. That is a criminal offense in my book.
Kaling: In anybody's book! It's literally a biblical sin. I mean, I would do it in, like, a heartbeat, but it's considered bad by most people.
Chastain: [laughs] No, no, it's terrible. And yet, we're watching this film and these problems that these people are dealing with—family, marriage, sisters, forgiveness—the writing and the acting in that film is so incredible.
