    The make up artists guild need to kick the people out who did this to her, she looks like a man in drag or a wax figure. sorry just my opinion.

  2. JA says:

    Pretty sure she’s styled after the real life woman she plays in the film. It’s based off a book written by said woman. That’s kinda the whole getting into character thing actors do.

    I really love the “Princess Anne is an undercover detective” narrative at GFY.Happy birthday to her!!

  4. Beatrix says:

    This movie is mostly based on a true story. The woman she is playing wore her makeup pretty much the way Jessica’s is done in the movie. It’s bad 90s makeup but the woman she portrays wore bad 90s makeup. As always, Jessica Chastain appears to have killed her part.

    This is about poker, right? I’m sure it’s a good movie, but poker has always made me immediately pass out, like all card games, or chess, or Monopoly.

    • SM says:

      Me too! I am sure the movie is good but from the trailer I find it hard to separate her character from the one she played in Miss Sloan. I ams ure the acting is good it just feels like a repetition which is not so good for an actor.

    That Jake Gyllenhaal situation is yet another proof how shallow media really is. There are dating rumors whenever two hot people are photographed anywhere near each other, even standing in the crowd 10 feet away – like that one time Charlize Theron was pictured standing in the same frame as Gabriel Aubry outside of school. But when one of those people is seen with a more regular looking person like Caruso, who is an attractive woman, but not in the supermodel kind of way, they can suddenly be pictured together every day doing couple-y stuff and no tabloid will suspect they might be dating. They could be kissing and some Star “journalist” would still try to find a way to deny their relationship.

    • Valois says:

      Eh, to be fair, Lainey’s merely speculating and that’s it. And for some reason CB has turned it into some sort of fact.
      They’ve been super close friends doing couple-y stuff for years (while being in other relationships). That doesn’t mean they’re not dating now, but it’s not a confirmation either.

      (I get your point though and agree with you,)

        The irony of criticizing an editorial blip on a celebrity gossip sight you intentionally clicked to get to and complaining about the shallowness of ‘media’. The horrors Trump aside, mainly light hearted GOSSIP (not facts) about celebs here. Great way to start my day:)

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        I wasn’t saying it’s true – they might just be friends. It’s more about the structure of tabloid gossip. Gyllenhaal being photographed with Caruso dozens of times should be more of a reason to claim they might be dating than that one time he was seen talking to some chef a few months ago and suddenly there were dating rumors everywhere. The only difference was that the chef looked like a model and Caruso doesn’t, which is an awful double standard.

        To Jenna – who was criticizing CB? Not me – I used the word tabloid to make it clear. CB is not the kind of website that posts shocking dating reveals every day – it’s reserved for Daily Mail, Star and other trashy magazines and it’s aimed at them.

    I will probably be skewered for this but I really cannot stand Chastain lol

  8. Marianne says:

    I dont buy her as being 26 though…

    • LadyT says:

      Born in ’77. Age 40. I’m not sure where you got 26.

    • perplexed says:

      I think she could probably pass for 26 in the ’90s. Brenda and Brandon’s parents 40 something year old parents on Beverly Hills 90120 looked soooo old. And for some reason everyone was willing to believe that Andrea looked 16. Looking at old episodes now, she didn’t look 16, yet for reasons that are unclear to me people marvelled at how young she looked.

      26 year olds probably look younger today.

      • Wassup says:

        20somethings in the 90s often looked older compared today. Now you can see 26 year olds that dont look much older than some teens. Selena gomez is 25 but can still pass for a teenager. Even 30 somethings look a lot younger than they did back then. You have 35 year olds that can still pass for 25 year olds. I think chastain can definitely pass for younger. I dont buy 26 though. I would say more like 33.

  9. Sassback says:

    TWENTY SIX? I guess we can’t be annoyed, women in Hollywoo have trouble getting dynamic roles as they approach 40.

  10. Zuzus Girl says:

    I think she is one of the best actresses working today. She can disappear into her roles.

  11. babu says:

    Historically accurate look. That makeup brings me way back.
    Coloured kohl under the eyes, oversized coral/salmon-coloured crayonned lips, as much white eye shadow as possible on the top, slightly wrong foundation stopping at the jawlin, unblended blush the shade of terracotta straight in the middle of everything … Those were the days.
    It looked bad, I admit. But it did not take as long as the contouring/baking/layering/highlighting disasters you see around these days.

  12. Mannori says:

    unpopular opinion: I’m afraid Chastain was terribly miscasted in this film. But of course, my opinion if based on this trailer and I should wait to watch the movie. Chastain is one of my favorite actresses, I think she’s really versatile and talented but I also think not every versatile and talented actor is meant to play any character. And I think this is the case. There’s something off, just by vibe, with her performance here. I hope I’m wrong!

    EDIT for the makeup thing: is on point with the character!
