Actress Jessica Chastain has recently spoken out against her rumored feud with fellow actress, Jennifer Lawrence.


In the March issue of Haute Living, Chastain explained that it was all the work of the media.

“[The media] were trying to get headlines and get clicks, [and] were trying to fabricate a fake rivalry between Jennifer Lawrence and myself and I immediately came out and said this is a media myth that has to stop,” she told the magazine.

She added that she cheers “for women to succeed” because “that means there’s going to be that many more roles for women.”

The “feud” began back in 2013 when Lawrence snagged the Best Actress award over Chastain for her role in Silver Linings Playbook. 

“I know also during Oscar season media, because they were trying to get headlines and get clicks,” she explained.

The actress also added: “Sometimes people have that attitude where, ‘You’re an actress making a lot of money, how dare you complain?’ We’ve kind of been programmed to be grateful that we’ve gotten this job, so don’t rock the boat. I don’t think that’s fair. Jennifer Lawrence coming out and saying that was really important.”
