Jessica Chastain talked to Marie Claire magazine recently and said that she almost blew off the the final audition for her Oscar nominated role in The Help.
She had already auditioned and been called back a handful of times for the part of Celia Foote, but when she was called back for one last meeting, she was already Louisana filming Texas Killing Fields.
“It (the auditioning process) had been stretched out for so long, and I thought it was because I wasn’t the right look, you know? I didn’t look like Celia Foote, so I remember there was a moment when I was like, ‘I’m not going to go. They clearly don’t want me for this part. It’s my day off. I shoot all night, so I can’t fly to L.A. and then fly back, I just can’t do it.’ But I was talked into going.”
