Chastain: I'm 'exhausted' by work

Jessica Chastain has revealed her hectic work schedule is starting to take its toll.

The Oscar-nominated Zero Dark Thirty actress is promoting Kathryn Bigelow's political drama, while starring in The Heiress on Broadway and trying to juggle her award ceremony commitments.

"It's exhausting but I love the films. I love being on Broadway," she said.

"I don't have time to go to these Oscar dinners and stuff but perhaps that's for the best. Because I'm on stage, I'm away from the craziness of that kind of campaigning. It's really exciting."

Jessica, who is dating British actor Tom Hiddleston, counts herself "lucky" for her successful two years.

"It's exciting because last year people were saying, 'This is your moment'. So last year I kept saying, 'I'm going to enjoy this because it's never going to happen again. I am never going to have a year like this again, it's incredible,' and here I am this year, thinking, 'I am never gonna have another year like this'," she continued.

"I've been very lucky. It's made up for the years I've not been able to get an audition for a film. The past two years have been exceptional."
