Jessica Chastain is so pretty, she oughta be in pictures. And we’re not just talking about the movies. For the December issue of Vogue, Annie Leibovitz shot the actress in a series of photographs inspired by works of art by Klimt, Magritte and van Gogh, among others — and the results are stunning (see two more photos below).
And while she poses as famous portraits of historical beauties, the portrait that emerges of the star herself in the Vogue piece is of someone very private, quiet and shy. Of having to portray a seductive woman in a Robert De Niro-directed film, Chastain says, ““I did not feel like a beautiful woman that people would kill each other for. Jessica — who I am in my personal life — I’m very shy, I feel very awkward, I don’t feel like a femme fatale at all.”
