MEXICO CITY, March 24 (EL UNIVERSAL).- An Oscar Award, a Golden Globe and three SAG Awards are some of the recognitions that Jessica Chastain has accumulated in her career, and her talent promises more.
The redheaded actress hails from Sacramento, California. She was born on March 24, 1977 and, unlike other actresses who start very young in the world of cinema, Jessica did it at thirty, although in theater the story was different, since at the age of 20 she began to participate in various plays Like Romeo and Juliet”.
Chastain’s childhood was not easy and neither was his adolescence. In fact, he rarely talks about the hardest passages of his life, and instead, he prefers to focus on his work and the roles he has played.
On turning 46, we take a tour of five of his best films where he shows why his name is getting more and more on red carpets and at awards shows.
1. “Mom” (2013)
A horror film in the style of Guillermo del Toro (of which he was an executive producer), where the “monster” really isn’t that much, despite killing some and frightening others. The story is beautiful and speaks of the enormous love of a mother to take care of her children despite life or death. Chastain gave life to the protagonist’s girlfriend who, after losing her brother, has to take care of her nieces who arrive accompanied by her peculiar “mom”.
2. “The Eyes Of Tammy Faye” (2021)
Some movies win awards, but they don’t fill movie theaters, and this is the case with this film that gave him the only Oscar in Chastain’s career so far. The tape tells the story of an evangelical presenter and her husband, personified by Andrew Garfield, who create an emporium that is at risk due to financial mismanagement.
3. “Dark Phoenix” (2019)
Chastain has also participated in superhero films and he did so in the “X-Man” story, where he gave life to the villain of this installment called “Vuk, Smith” and, although the ending was fatal, no one was afraid of the experience. removes it
4. “Interstellar” (2014)
This science fiction film narrates a story of the end of the world, where through science humanity must solve the best way to survive in the face of the imminent destruction of the planet. The redhead shared credits with Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and Matt Damon.
5. “The Zookeeper’s Wife” (2017)
The stories that speak of the Holocaust are always moving and this is no exception. The film, based on true events, tells the story of zookeepers in Warsaw in Poland who helped save the lives of nearly 300 Jews.
