Jessica Chastain's Quotes

  • I was a difficult child because I wanted to be the mom.
  • I don't look modern. I'm not the girl that would walk into the room and everyone goes, "Oh!"
  • [on being directed by Terrence Malick in The Tree of Life (2011)] I would have pages of what we were going to convey, but I could say the words in any order I wanted, and sometimes we would say the same thing in many different ways... I think he will always be the greatest teacher I know. I'm trying, in the Terrence Malick kind of way of not planning and just allowing life to happen, trying to find these moments that mirror life and [are] not preconceived in any way. So that has changed me. I try to keep that freshness in things we've done.
  • [on rehearsals] They'll say, "Save it, save it". I tell them: "Don't worry. I have a bottomless well of tears."
  • Sometimes I'll have a meeting with someone and they'll say, "Oh, Sean Penn was just here and was saying the nicest things about you". You know, when you're applying for a job? These are like my recommendations. It's nice.
