Queen ✩ Jessica CHRISTain ✩ obviously couldn't be mean to the kids in 'Mama'

Jessica Chastain had a hard time getting into character as a reluctant caregiver in new horror film Mama - because she fell in love with her two young co-stars. The Zero Dark Thirty star tried to be as distant as possible when she started work on the film - but youngsters Megan Charpentier and Victoria Isabelle Nelisse just wanted to play with her.

She explains, "My character is definitely the reluctant mother and wants nothing to do with children... and in the beginning she's a bit of a b**ch, unlikable and selfish who grows a heart of gold by the end.

"I'd rather just hang out with kids than adults any day, but I tried to be a little removed from them in the beginning; I didn't want to scoop them up and love them because that's not quite the character and I wanted them to be a little unsure of me. But it didn't last long."

"We had little dance parties to the song Dynamite. Little Isabelle only spoke French and learned English throughout the shoot and became obsessed with that song, so we played it every day. She learned all the lyrics and we did dance parties in the trailer. The girls would make drawings for me and I posted them in my dressing room... I mean, how can you not love these girls?"

I like Jessica, but I didn't like Mama at all.
dirrtypony 30th-Jan-2013 08:54 pm (UTC)
yea it was a bit lackluster.
ichdontthinksoo 30th-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
Me neither ;( I didn't think it was bad or anything, it's just... lacking. It was worth it for me though, any movie where I can watch my Queen is <3
marley_love 30th-Jan-2013 09:08 pm (UTC)

redaodai 30th-Jan-2013 09:09 pm (UTC)
They make out in bed, but they're interrupted. It's PG-13 after all.

i liked her a lot leading up to last years oscar's but this fucking gif is what did me in she's too cute
principino 30th-Jan-2013 08:51 pm (UTC)
She lies about her age and is very stuffy. She must hate Jennifer Lawrence so much, since JL is everything Chastain isn't: talented, young and (soon-to-be) Oscar winner.

When I got the notification for your comment I was sure I was coming here to read another one of your ridiculous yet amusing 'facts' only to find this lame tired insult?
principino 30th-Jan-2013 08:59 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your support. Shitstain isn't worth my telling a story about. The truth is appropriate for her.

I expect better from you tbh
tangerinefriday 31st-Jan-2013 05:26 am (UTC)
LOLL this sounds like such projection.

I'm sure she was just dying to be the lead in the *brilliance* that is the Hunger Games too. lmao.
michelleantonia 31st-Jan-2013 05:46 am (UTC)
LMAO nice try

Bitter bitches who can't deal with the fact that she's one of the most perfect actresses ONTD has ever stanned for.
principino 30th-Jan-2013 09:02 pm (UTC)
Early adopters don't stan for her. You're behind the wave. You'll see.
nabuch 30th-Jan-2013 09:02 pm (UTC)
out of all shitty, racist, misogynist and douche people they picked her to hate on

drypumpernickel 30th-Jan-2013 09:08 pm (UTC)
I don't get it either, tbh. I honestly don't.
disclosure 30th-Jan-2013 09:11 pm (UTC)
I don't know. I'm not a big fan or anything, but I'm trying to figure out why someone would hate on her.
megalixer 30th-Jan-2013 09:18 pm (UTC)
lol ikr? even if you don't love her she seems too harmless to hate
vanillefax 30th-Jan-2013 09:58 pm (UTC)
Her harmlessness annoys me.
bitchwhisperer 30th-Jan-2013 10:42 pm (UTC)
for starring in and defending the inexcusable zero dark thirty + the help
also she dresses terribly
onesilkstocking 30th-Jan-2013 08:55 pm (UTC)
lmao this reminds me of an interview she did doing Tree of Life when Brad's character would be mean to the kids and she was like "I JUST WANTED TO RUN UP TO HIM AND TELL HIM TO STOP" she seems so sweet
manicpixiegirl 30th-Jan-2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
Aww, she's too cute.
alwayscaffeine 30th-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
She has really angular features. I thought Mama was seriously disappointing.
marley_love 30th-Jan-2013 08:57 pm (UTC)
she is such a majestic beauty

hypnology 30th-Jan-2013 08:58 pm (UTC)
she looks stunning in the red dress
jammyjam 30th-Jan-2013 09:00 pm (UTC)
seriously. i had a friend once say that redheads can't wear red. how amazingly ridiculous of a comment that was.
little_kitkat 30th-Jan-2013 09:22 pm (UTC)
lol, I'm a redhead and you're right. So false.
crazyventures 30th-Jan-2013 11:43 pm (UTC)
Christina Hendricks (fake redhead but whatever) pulls red off really well, too.
deltabean 30th-Jan-2013 09:05 pm (UTC)
yeah, that dress works so well for her
ritzyroxie 30th-Jan-2013 08:59 pm (UTC)
Such a timeless (aka 64 years old) beauty.

devlinacardigan 30th-Jan-2013 09:10 pm (UTC)
What movie is it? It looks familiar.
rimbaudacious 30th-Jan-2013 09:16 pm (UTC)

miwa201 30th-Jan-2013 09:16 pm (UTC)
