No time for enemies! Jessica chastain is loud and proud of her fashion obsession – and she doesn’t care what anyone has to say about her large clothing collection.
“I have a problem with people who blame women for having a ton of shoes or too many clothes – come on,” she said in a Tuesday Sept. 7 interview with The official. “If someone wants to look fabulous, let them be fabulous. Let them express themselves as they wish.
She continued, “If they want to wear a pound of makeup, let them do it. If they want to wear wigs, let them do it. I love fashion and glam as a form of personal expression.
Using style and beauty as a way to show emotion is something she took into account for her latest role as Tammy Faye Bakker in her new movie, Tammy Faye’s eyes.
She even told the stylist Mitchell Travers that she needed to recreate one of Faye’s most over-the-top looks for the movie.
“The only thing I really liked, because it was so silly, was the white fur coat with the white hat. Faux fur of course, ”she said in the interview. “It’s actually from a picture I saw of her and took to Mitchell Travers, our costume designer, like ‘Mitch, please! We have to recreate this look! ‘”
Chastain went on to explain that she loved the ’90s vibe for her character. “I love her red jacket with the leopard lining – she said her two favorite colors were pink and leopard. It’s a way of paying homage to her.
While fashion could have been fun, the glamor Chastain needed to become her character was a bit taxing – she spent hours a day getting prosthetics. In fact, one day she spent a total of 7 and a half hours putting on makeup.
“I think I caused permanent damage to my skin because of it. Look, I eat very pure, I take really good care of my skin, and I stay out of the sun and all that stuff, ”she told the Los Angeles Times in an interview in August.
Still, it was no match for “heavy” makeup. “When you wear it all day, every day, its weight on your body stretches your skin. I finally took it off and was like, “I look like I’m 50! No just kidding. But it’s good. It’s for my art, ”she added.
