Fugger: Jessica Chastain

Well Played, Jessica Chastain in Giorgio Armani

I know we don’t actually know each other personally, but I swear: When Chastain gets it right, I want to high-five her.

Fugs and Fabs: Matthew McConaughey’s Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

These things have become a full-on PR event (not that they weren’t before). Lately, they’re attended regularly by — WHAT A COINCIDENCE! — the people who just HAPPEN to be starring with the honoree in his new movie! That said, who wouldn’t go to a Walk of Fame event for Mister All Right All Right All Right? And both Anne Hathaway and Jessica Chastain seem to be having a ball. Jessica, at least, should be pleased. She looks AWESOME.

Fug or Fab: Jessica Chastain in Nina Ricci at the AMPAS Governors’ Awards

I saw Interstellar this past weekend, and I have to say, I thought it was pretty lousy, and that almost everyone was underwhelming in it except for Jessica Chastain here (although, Chasty included, they did get saddled with some unforgivably bad lines, ponderous pontificating, frustrating illogic, and the fact that I seriously feel like nobody gives Christopher Nolan notes anymore — or perhaps he simply doesn’t accept them). She was the most natural of any of them, even though there’s one part (not a spoiler) in which it asks you to believe she is the same age Matthew McConaughey appears to be, and I actually laughed out loud in the theater. COME ON.

I could go on at length about all the things that were excruciating, but I will spare you. If you want to see a movie that really impacts you with the sheer immensity and isolation of space, try Gravity (and I have to think Nolan is mad he couldn’t use that title, because they bang on about it in every scene). The visuals were way better. Chasty must be bummed that she has to ignore another potentially better movie in which she’s reportedly excellent in favor of promoting this bloated affair.

At least her face and hair are soldiering on bravely:

But this is basically a nightgown, right? Albeit a nightgown with FEELINGS. A nightgown with wants and needs and a lot of dreams that one day they’ll together be Grace Farrell performing a song and dance in a glamorous dressing room about going to see a Greta Garbo movie. (That nightgown is not, I suspect, going to like the Annie remake that’s coming out in December.) I appreciate the romance of the layers, which you can see well from behind:

Well Played, Jessica Chastain

In which we are reminded that while she may not always hit it out of the park on the red carpet, Jessica Chastain does “walking down the street in a coat” really, really well.
