Jessica Chastain stopped byÂ Jimmy Kimmel LiveÂ last night to promote her new filmÂ The Huntsman: Winter’s War, which, despite having an all-star cast that includes Chastain, Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, and Chris Hemsworth, is getting universally panned by critics. Still though, those negative reviews don’t seem to have gotten Chastain down, as she was her usual bubbly and lovely self on the late night showÂ last night, even sharing a story with Kimmel about her awkward experience with a stripper in Las Vegas.
So when and how does this situation happen? Well, it was during a bachlorette party that Chastain was throwing for her friend Jess, who is apparently a huge fan of theÂ Magic MikeÂ films. Since she likes those movies so much, Chastain thought it would be fun to take her to Thunder Down Under, but it was not what she expected.
“We want into this theater, and I’m thinking it’s going to be like a revue, a theater,” she explains. “And it’s like a black box room with folding chairs and tables, and it’s kind of smelly a little bit. And then this woman comes over to me, and she goes, ‘Hello Miss Chastain. We’re so happy you’re here. Here’s our photographer from Getty Images.’ And I was like, ‘Please, I do not want a picture with some strange guy’s junk in my face on the internet.'”
After Chastain admittedly “freaked out a little bit,” the woman went backstage and told the strippers to leave her alone while they were performing, which they did, for the most part. Since Chastain was in the front row and her friend had gotten brought up on stage, one particular stripper kept making eye contact with theÂ HuntsmanÂ star with one of the most interesting facial expressions you will ever see.
