Speaking to ASOS magazine, the actress worries: “There are some dresses that are so beautiful, the detail is so magnificent, but I can’t give them the justice they deserve ... It’s tough because I’m never going to look better than a catwalk model in a dress. I’m not a model, I could never be a model.” That's the acting business's demands — while shooting The Help, Chastain and her castmates, “would work all day, then go and eat because we had to gain weight ... All of your clothes get too tight, but there’s something really sensual about being heavier, you feel like a painter’s muse.”
