Jessica Chastain becomes "vulnerable" when nominated for awards.
The flame-haired beauty recently took home the Best Actress Golden Globe for her role as CIA agent Maya in Kathryn Bigelow's political thriller Zero Dark Thirty and with other potential awards in the pipeline - including an Oscar - she feels "anything" is possible after receiving so much support from family, friends and fans.
"I don't work for awards but when you receive support and encouragement, it opens me up more, it helps me be vulnerable. I think that's why I got so emotional at the Golden Globes - to feel the support I was getting at that moment made me feel like I could do anything," she said.
Since soaring to fame after playing ditzy housewife Celia Foote in 2011's The Help - which she won numerous Best Supporting Actress awards for - Jessica ensures she focuses more on her career and avoids causing any drama in her personal life: "I really made an effort to not put myself in situations where my private life becomes more interesting than my work. Like being seen dancing on a table in a nightclub. I'm not interested in that kind of, er, acknowledgement."

Lincoln stars Daniel, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones are all up for awards, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress and Best Supporting Actor respectively, while Spielberg is in the running for Best Director.
After starring in a string of critically-acclaimed films such as Tree of Life, The Help, and Take Shelter, Oscar-nominated actress Jessica Chastain has chosen to take on the horror film genre for her next project, Mama. A remake of Andres Muschietti's 2008 Spanish-language film Mamá, Jessica stars as Annabel, a woman who helps raise her husband's (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) nieces, who have just been found after having been lost in the forest for five years. The film - produced by Guillermo Del Toro - takes a turn when Annabel realizes the girls are haunted by a woman they believe to be their mother.
You can see a transformed Jessica - who is practically unrecognizable in the film - as Annabel after the jump.
