Jessica-ChastainAs things stand, Jessica Chastain is one of the most renowned female movie stars in world cinema, with a Best Actress Oscar nomination to her name, Mama and Zero Dark Thirty currently occupying both the top spots in the current US Box Office, it seems that the sky is the limit for this talented performer – and we were fortunate enough to sit down with her this week to discuss the role which has earnt her so much acclaim.

Zero Dark Thirty chronicles the 10 year hunt to capture Osama bin Laden, a Chastain plays Maya, a determined CIA operative heading this mission. Chastain discusses with us her research for the role – and how she wasn’t able to meet the real person her character is based upon.

She also tells us of her experience working with director Kathryn Bigelow, while we also gage her reaction to the recent Jennifer Lawrence clip, where the Silver Linings Playbook star ridicules her fellow Oscar nominees.
