I don't want to be typecast: Jessica Chastain


Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain says she does not want to do similar roles or get labelled.

The 35-year-old actress, who has starred in films like Tree Of Life and The Help, wants to keep trying something different, reported OK magazine.

"If someone tries to type me, I am super stubborn and I will do the opposite. 'Tree of Life' is one of my favourite things I have ever done. That character was probably the greatest gift I have ever been given," Chastain said.

"But the second I found out people were typing me, I was like, I will show you! I will do the exact opposite of a Terrence Malick (director of Tree of Life)... I am going to do a horror film. And I am going to play the opposite of a good mother," she added.
