On Eve of Oscars, 'Zero Dark Thirty's' Jessica Chastain Is Finally Able to Relax

THR's awards analyst Scott Feinberg interviews Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain. From joining a dance troupe at an early age to getting in to Juilliard and starring in Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica opens up about her career.  

"Every scene we shot was focused on the accuracy, everything, even what was on the desk and I think some things aren't in the film because they thought let's not show a close up of that" the actress shared about the filming of Zero Dark Thirty. "We even shot in a Jordanian prison because that is where those scenes would have taken place, it was very intense and the responsibility of getting it right because we were playing real people and it was based on a very important historical event."
