"I think if I wasn't an actor, I would be an entertainment journalist," Chastain said during a recent interview at New York's Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The actress, an Oscar nominee who has starred in four movies this year, recalled a story about how when she first went to the Cannes Film Festival in 2011, she expected to see a lot of great movies. But when she didn't have time, changes were made to how she schedules out her film festival commitments.
"Now I say I will go, but they need to give me time to go see other people's films," Chastain said. "I saw 'Mommy' at Cannes this year, and from that I'm now working with Xavier Dolan."
