Jessica Chastain Calls the Kardashians 'the Most Powerful Women in Our Society'
"You definitely see that she is a very intelligent person," Molly's Game actress Jessica Chastain told The Hollywood Reporter of Kim Kardashian
The Kardashian women have a famous fan in Jessica Chastain.
On top of lauding the women in the family — that includes mom Kris Jenner, oldest child Kourtney, social media star Kim, new mom Khloé, model Kendall and makeup maven Kylie — Chastain also complimented 37-year-old Kim‘s “genius.”
“You definitely see that she is a very intelligent person and is learning how to gain control over her life,” the X-Men: Dark Phoenix star said. “I mean, she already has it, but especially in media and society.”
Chastain admitted to the trade that like the KarJenner ladies, she’s found herself the subject of tabloid rumors — though she never took them seriously.

“In 2012, there was some tabloid saying that, like, Jennifer Lawrence and I were in a feud, which was insane,” Chastain said. “She and I laughed about it. She came up to me and goes, ‘So I hear we’re feuding?’ ”
She believes that being a woman makes it even harder to avoid negative press. “It’s hard to walk the balance beam of acceptable behavior for women, teetering between passion that can get twisted into Daily Mail headlines and a work ethic that makes some colleagues deem you icy,” Chastain continued to THR.
But luckily the California native shared, “I’ve never had a bad situation with women that I’ve worked with.”
