Oscar Nominee Jessica Chastain: I'm Not Going to Win!
Jessica Chastain isn't stressing about her Oscars speech.
The Best Supporting Actress contender (nominated for her role in The Help) told Us Weekly at the Marni for H&M launch February 17 she hasn't put any effort into it at all--and isn't planning to. The reason? "I really don’t expect to win!" Chastain laughed. (The 30-year-old's competition Sunday evening includes The Artist's Bérénice Bejo, Bridesmaids' Melissa McCarthy, Albert Nobbs' Janet McTeer--and her pal and Help costar Octavia Spencer). Continued Chastain: "I haven't had a speech prepared for any of these [events]. I'm just really excited I get to go!"
The first time Academy Award nominee--who appeared in over six films in 2011 alone--also opened up to Us about her surreal year in the spotlight. "I always feel a little bit like, 'When's the jig going to be up?" Chastain admitted.
"I was at the BAFTAs, and I saw Gary Oldman," the Debt actress continued. "I was like, 'Hi Gary,' and he goes, 'Hi Jessica.' I walked away and thought, 'What is happening to my life?'"
Earlier this week, the redheaded beauty told E! she's looking forward to sharing her big night with a very special lady--her grandmother! "It's going to be really meaningful because she's the one who took me to my first play as a little kid," the Juilliard alum shared. "She's always been so supportive of me."
