Jessica Chastain might be dating her hot, Venezuelan ‘ZDT’ costar Edgar Ramirez

In yesterday’s post devoted to the LA premiere of Zero Dark Thirty, I wondered aloud as to why Alex Skarsgard’s Viking Beard was in attendance, and I suggested that the tabloids would make up a story about Skarksgard and Jessica Chastain, the star of Zero Dark Thirty. I also included photos of Jessica and her costar Edgar Ramirez – he was the only person on the red carpet who posed with Jessica. Now Page Six is saying that there are “rumors” about Jessica and Edgar, not Jessica and Alex. Which is fine by me! I think Edgar Ramirez is Venezuelan, talented and super-hot, and he and Jessica look really lovely and sexy together:

Gossip is swirling about a possible romance between “Zero Dark Thirty” co-stars Jessica Chastain and Edgar Ramírez. Sources tell us the two, who are both single, “became close during filming” of the Kathryn Bigelow movie. Chastain and Ramírez further fanned the buzz by posing with their arms around one another at the Los Angeles premiere of the Columbia Pictures release. But another source told us the pair, who share the same representation, are “just good friends.”

Now, you know I like Jessica. She’s A-list as far as talent goes, for sure. But she’s not A-list as far as gossip goes, and I’ve long wondered if Harvey Weinstein or some PR genius hasn’t been quietly trying to set Jessica up some big celebrity dude so that her profile can be raised a bit. Edgar Ramirez does NOT raise her profile, so if they are happening, it’s just because they’re hot for each other and really… aren’t we all winners then? Because we get to imagine how hot it is between them. That being said, I keep getting the feeling that Jessica is kind of weird/damaged/fragile about Hollywood relationships and boyfriends and stuff. So I do kind of buy that she was just being friendly and sweet to her costar friend, and they’re not boning. But God, I wish they were.

    they would make an attractive couple if true..

  3. Talie says:

    I could’ve sworn she was the subject of a blind item about her avoiding relationships because they had always derailed her career in the past.

    • carrie says:

      do you remember when Lainey wrote about her and Jake Guyllenhal’s beard?

      I remember her Cannes press junket this year with Tom Hardy and her flirting together

  4. Astrid says:

    They look loved-up in the last photo.

  5. Aubra says:

    LOVE her! Hope she’s in love and he can handle her career juggernaut she seems to be on!

    Has anyone seen that movie “Joline”, it looks good, I don’t know if it was a straight to DVD orwhat, but it looks like a good one.

  6. Nanz says:

    I really like her. But the top of that dress reminds me if a Platex bra commercial.

    • Christina says:

      LOLI I agree. It looks like a 1950s bra. I couldn’t help thinking how ‘revealing’ it looked, even though you couldn’t in fact see anything through it at all.

  7. Aria says:

    She’s not into men.

  8. Sara says:

    this actor is amazing… just watch Carlos , put on youtube.
    their babies would be beautiful

    • victoria1 says:

      I saw it! I was like damn who is that and how did I miss him????? He was insanely good. Time for more Latinos to get noticed in Hollywood and not only boobalicious & bootylicious ones…

  9. Alex says:

    She should date a fellow redhead like Damian Lewis from ‘Homeland’.

  10. Tiffany says:

    I will always remember Edgar for being on this knees, getting slapped around and then having his neck snapped by The Leg in Mr and Mrs Smith. Up until the neck thing THAT was hot.Some things just stick with you.

  11. Angie says:

    I love Jessica, so talented, classy and she seems like a very sweet and nice girl. She was cute on the oscar red carpet, almost a year ago. She was genuinely excited and happy to be nominated.

  12. Amy says:

    I thought she was with Tom Hardy while they were filming Lawless? I guess that’s over.

  13. A says:

    Love her, and he is so sexy and talented too. Good couple if true.

  14. flor says:

    YES! Both of them are genuinely talented and do not brag about it! I would love them together!

  15. Nancy says:

    Yeah. . .page 6 of the NY Post is such a credible source for the truth. LOL I call BS on this as Jessica has said many times she doesn’t date actors.

  16. HulaHoop says:

    The way his hands are clasped around her waist/hip area in the first pic tells me that they’re a couple.

  17. tammylala says:

    I like her. I don’t like that dress on her. That peplum is doing bad things to her waistline.

  18. Viola says:

    he’s amazing, gorgeous and intelligent man. fluent in english, french, spanish, german

  19. lizbet says:

    WHOA! He looks like a slightly more Latin Patrick Dempsey!

  20. Sefa says:

    She could also just be the friendly type. Someone told me she became really close with Tom Hardy on Lawless, and that they have joint custody of a dog they adopted while filming.

  21. RedLioness says:

    He’s so freakin hot. I would hit that SO SO much…

  22. Jen says:

    I think Jessica is just the touchy feely type. She says that she doesn’t date actors. Plus there are rumors about Edgar’s sexuality. And he’s a bit handsy too. Much ado about nothing if you ask me.

  23. Chachi says:

    I am venezuelan and here it is openly known he is gay.

    • J C says:

      Yes we heard rumors that he is dating and has been for about 1 & 1/2 years a Latin American Journalist named Jonathan Blum? It that true? I love Edgar no matter as I think he is a great actor…
