Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her portrayal of Celia Rae Foote in the 2011 period drama film The Help, Jessica Chastain was widely praised for her performance.

She added about 15 pounds to her frame for her role in DreamWorks’ adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s novel that you can buy at Amazon.

Also named the sexiest vegetarian actress in a poll conducted by PETA in 2012, many fans were surprised to see Jessica’s character eating fried chicken in the movie. However, it turns out she wasn’t eating real chicken.

“The scene where I was eating fried chicken, they made me vegan fried chicken. It probably [didn’t taste as good] as fried chicken. They did an amazing job. They took a turkey dog and tofurkey and battered it, and deep-fried it,” Chastain said in an interview in 2012.

“I haven’t had meat in so long. I’ve been vegan for five years and vegetarian for 15 years, so if I had had meat, I wouldn’t have been able to do the scene. They all thought I was just chowing down.”

Let’s just take a moment to pay homage to the beautiful Jessica Chastain, who decided to delight our weary eyes with an explosion of green and gold at the 2015 National Board of Review Gala.
