Jessica Chastain is worried about how her celebrity will impact her life.

The Academy Award-nominated actress' new movie Lawless is now in theatres and she is preparing for a number releases in 2013.

Jessica hopes that her growing fame won't give fans the wrong impression.

"It's a little daunting, because I hope that people don't get sick of me," she told Star magazine.

Jessica is most concerned with how she will be received by the public.

The down-to-earth star is intent on maintaining her humility.

"I'm in denial. I don't like the idea that fame could mean that people can no longer relate to me," she explained.

"So I'm going to try to figure out how to live my life so that isn't a problem."

Jessica doesn't speak about her age to too many people.

She prefers to keep her length of life close to her chest.

"I never say. Clearly, I'm not 15. But I like mystery," she said.
