Jessica Chastain Could Become Bigger Star In Tree Of Life

Jessica Chastain Tree Of Life - The Tree of Life were among the awards presented at Cannes last month as Jessica Chastain is just starting out. She is a busy actress and is about to turn fame. The actress has a total of six films out in 2011.

The success makes Chastain one of film’s hottest new stars, and yet she’s still be interviewed about her co-stars. Then again, it’s quite understandable when you play opposite to perhaps the biggest movie star in the world.

Chastain spoke with PopSugar about working with Brad Pitt on “The Tree of Life,” discussing their fight scene and her relationship with her co-star.

At one point in the film, after an altercation with their children, Chastain and Pitt have an anxious — and then unscripted — moment in the kitchen.

“I don’t know why or what on earth possessed me, but I grabbed the pepper and rubbed it in his face and said, ‘How do you like it?’ And then he grabbed me, and all of a sudden, we’re fighting and struggling,” Chastain said. “So working with Brad, an actor who is open to being spontaneous and emotional and inventive and really listens to the other person, you can have moments like that. When someone comes in and they plan what they’re going to do, you don’t get those accidents.”

Off-screen, though, there was a lot less tension between the pair, even if their roles required them to keep a little bit of distance.
