Jessica Chastain: “Zero Dark Thirty” Promotional Fun

Posted Tuesday December 4, 2012 11:10 AM GMT

Stepping out for some press duties, Jessica Chastain arrived at a Q&A event for her new film “Zero Dark Thirty” in New York City last night (December 3).

The “Help” hottie looked gorgeous as always as she strolled into the Regal E-Walk Times Square Theater to chat with attendees about the intense movie.

Jessica dropped out of Tom Cruise’s “Oblivion” to star in “Zero Dark Thirty,” and in a recent interview she praised the “Minority Report” hunk for letting her out of the contract.

"When [the director] Kathryn cold-called me, asking whether I would be interested in this role, I was already working on another movie. I'd already signed up for it. Tom was actually very gracious about it. I wanted to do both but in the end I couldn't work it out.”
