Jessica Chastain: Reporting for “Heiress” Duty

Posted Wednesday January 2, 2013 4:00 PM GMT

Headed back to Broadway for another day on the job, Jessica Chastain showed up at her play “The Heiress” in New York City this afternoon (January 2).

The “Zero Dark Thirty” actress looked a bit tired as she strolled into the theater, sporting a long purple coat with a navy top, dark wash jeans, and brown flats.

And though her slow-but-steady rise to fame has literally blown up this year, Jessica told Vogue she’s never doubted her career path.

"I have always known I wanted to be an actress, but my New York experience made me realize that my desire had nothing to do with becoming famous or making money. I was interested in exploring the human soul."
