Chastain thrilled for future films

Jessica Chastain is delighted to be working with host of top directors

Jessica Chastain has said she is "very lucky" as she gets to film with top filmmakers such as Christopher Nolan and Guillermo del Toro.

The Oscar-nominated actress is set to star in Interstellar, the latest film by the Dark Knight Rises director, and is also attached to Crimson Peak, Guillermo's next movie.

"I'm about to go shoot Interstellar with Christopher Nolan. I'm very excited about that," she said.

Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine and Matthew McConaughey also star in sci-fi thriller Interstellar, while Benedict Cumberbatch is in horror Crimson Peak.

She continued: "And I just finished doing Miss Julie, directed by Liv Ullmann opposite Colin Farrell. I'm doing Crimson Peak next year, directed by Guillermo del Toro."

Jessica added: "Christopher Nolan, Liv Ullmann, Guillermo del Toro - the greats! I'm so excited. I'm very lucky."

The actress, who was a presenter at the Sound Of Change fund-raising concert in London alongside Blake Lively, Madonna, Zoe Saldana and Jada Pinkett Smith, revealed her grandmother taught her her most important lesson in life.

"My grandmother told me to wear colour. She said, 'Don't hide. Wear colour'," she said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
