To say her career is scorching hot would be an understatement. Fresh off last year’s movies, in particular The Help and Tree of Life, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain is promoting two films at the Cannes Film Festival.
She voices a role in Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted and also stars in Lawless, a crime drama. And um, did we mention the latter film has a nude scene which she’ll watch inside a jam-packed theater in Cannes?
According to USA Today, she said, “It’s going to be interesting to see this film in a huge theater. Because I am, you know, more exposed.”

Then, she added while giggling, “It will be totally embarrassing. I am going to be bright red. I’ll have to cover my eyes during that scene.” In the movie, Jessica stars with Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf during the Prohibition Era in Virginia.
Although she sounded a little squeamish about seeing herself in the flesh on the big screen, technically, it was a pretty powerful experience for the starlet. Jessica indicated, “So I am a woman very much in control in that scene. I am not being objectified. So I was excited to shoot it. It puts the woman in a very powerful position.”
Lawless opens in theaters nationwide on August 31.
