Jessica Chastain is tired of asshole reporters claiming she hates people she doesn’t – namely Jennifer Lawrence. Showbiz Spy claimed sometime late last year that Chastain became angry with Lawrence after the latter portrayed her during her hosting gig on SNL. First of all, who gets mad over an SNL sketch? Oh, that’s right – nobody. Second of all, this story is just more bullshit made up by papers to pit women against each other and make us all seem like catty bitches incapable of having a) a sense of humour b) a modicum of maturity c) respect for our fellow ladies getting theirs.
In any case, Jessica finally had enough and took to her Facebook page to put this f-ckery to rest:
I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry. Filming The Help was the most amazing experience and yet, that is the film Im most asked about in regards to “fighting on set”. Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?
I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they’ve all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness. I’ve done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I’ve told her how beautiful her film work is.
Please don’t allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women arent supportive of each other. Everytime an actress is celebrated for her great work, I cheer. For the more brilliant their performance, the more the audience demands stories about women. With support and encouragement, we help to inspire this industry to create opportunities for women. And as we all know: a great year for women in film, is just a great year for film xxjes
It’s pretty dick that Jessica Chastain even had to speak about this, that enough of a big deal was made out of it to warrant a response. You’d never hear, say, Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe going on like this – and that’s because the media doesn’t make up bullshit like that about men.
In any case, both women are extremely talented, seem pretty down-to-earth and newsflash: there’s room for more than one talented, cool lady in the business. In fact, the more the merrier! More talented chill ladies in showbiz, please!
