Jessica Chastain has denied reports that she is in the running to play Hillary Clinton in a new biopic.
Speaking to Digital Spy and other journalists at the Sound of Change concert in London on Saturday (June 1), the Zero Dark Thirty star claimed that she only heard about being linked to Rodham online.
Asked about the Clinton movie rumours, Chastain replied: "No, that's actually not true. I found out about the project online, but, yeah, there's a lot of stuff out there."
Chastain also praised her Tree of Life co-star Brad Pitt for "see[ing] everyone as equals", and said that he would be in support of the women's empowerment gig.
"The great thing about Brad is he's nice to everyone," she said. "He's a gentleman.
"I don't believe in terms like 'top of the bill', and maybe Brad doesn't [either]. He just sees everyone as equals, and that's why we're here tonight."
Scarlett Johansson, Reese Witherspoon and Amanda Seyfried are among the other stars apparently being considered to play Clinton in Rodham, which documents the politician's time as a lawyer in the 1970s.
IMO, good decision.
