“It means so much to me. For so long, female actors they were waiting for someone to come and tell them that they are allowed to work, what they are allowed to do, how they are allowed to look, how to express themselves, in some way“, He said in the People US tribute to the film awards.
“10 years ago, at the beginning of my career, I saw the documentary and I thought ‘You know what? It would be a very good movie. “I still do not know how to make films – I’m only an actor – so I will find it.” “So I bought the rights.”
“How wonderful that I am here and receiving recognition, with a project to which I gave everything and a character that just… a woman who just fell in love with everything she stands for. And somehow every aspect of my career has been recognized so far».
Oscar for Best Actor is also nominated by Olivia Colman, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Kristen Stewart. Chastain approached each one individually, congratulated them and sent them flowers.
“It may sound silly, but when I got the nomination, I got Penelope on FaceTime, I called Olivia, Kristen and I talked to Nicole, and I sent bouquets to all of them,” he explained.
“I look forward to celebrating right now with all those wonderful women.”
