Golden Globes: For Jessica Chastain, a little bubbly will 'Help'
Jessica Chastain has never been to the Golden Globes before. "I'm really nervous," she said Sunday before heading into the Beverly Hilton ballroom. "I still feel like a newbie."
So what will she do to calm the nerves? "I'm gonna sit with my girls from 'The Help' and we're gonna sip some Champagne," she said with a smile.
Chastain, up for supporting actress in a drama for her portrayal of the "tacky" Cecilia Foote in "The Help," said she doesn't try on many dresses before deciding on her red carpet look because she usually has a good idea of what she likes to wear.
"It was love at first sight when I tried this one on," Chastain said of her white Givenchy gown. The actress has been seen in a variety of colorful dresses on the red carpet this season — a move she says isn't intentional.
"I think for me fashion is just like acting. It's ways of telling stories. Maybe that's why my parts in my movies are so different. I like the feeling of being a storyteller. So maybe that's why it's been the different colors."
