While Jessica Chastain has previously cited her red hair as a possible reason why it took a while for her acting career to kick off, we’re extremely glad that she stuck with the redheaded way of life. She once told InStyle magazine: “Being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn’t know exactly where to put me.”
But now, thankfully, she feels different.
“As a child I didn’t like it
because it made me different.
But as I grew older and more comfortable,
it became a badge of honour.”
Too right. Happy birthday, Jessica!
