Jessica Chastain Goes Topless for Vanity Fair September 2012
The 35-year-old actress joined fellow cover star Kate Middleton as topping the magazine's International Best-Dressed Women List while also offering up a sultry topless pose for the Mario Testino shot spread.
Meanwhile, a few of the highlights from Miss Chastain's accompanying interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Vanity Fair!
On her nervousness over her future in acting:
“I have a feeling that very soon I’m going to fail very, very big. I’m going to try something and everybody’s going to be like, ‘What was she thinking?’”
On the worriesome thoughts which have constantly plagued her:
“Will someone be mean to me?" She adds, "I don’t want people to look at me. I’ve spent my life being embarrassed."
On her upcoming role as Catherine Sloper in the Broadway revival of 'The Heiress':
“I haven’t been this unsure in a long time. I don’t feel like ‘Oh yeah, I’m going to nail this.’ I feel really, really terrified.”
Mario Testino on Miss Chastain:
“More and more, I am attracted to mixing the beauty of actresses with their talent to transform themselves into other characters, bringing out something hidden within them. For this shoot, I wanted to use Jessica’s acting talent by giving her the role of an English lady—an eccentric—living a detached life in her rural home with her birds, dogs, and horses. But all while maintaining a high level of style. Very inspired by the paintings of [Giovanni] Boldini, [John Singer] Sargent, and [Thomas] Gainsborough.”
