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.”
