Jessica Chastain weathers online haters, hits up London for photocall

I think Jessica Chastain is a pretty classy chick. While she accepted a Critics Choice award last week, Chastain took the time to address a need for diversity in Hollywood instead of just blather on a bunch of thank yous for her acceptance speech, including saying that those in the industry should "stand together against homophobic, sexist, misogynistic, anti-Semitic and racist agendas." While she also admitted that being a part of the industry made her a part of the problem, the amount of hate speech online directed at her after the speech left her a bit taken aback.

"I've had really terrible people who are racists comment on the speech and say really terrible things. I'm understanding that some people in this world, how much hate they can have," Chastain said while being interviewed in London for the debut of her film, A MOST VIOLENT YEAR. "Some people had taken my speech and then made it about awards - like SAG Awards or Oscars. That's not what my speech was about. To me awards are just a reflection. It's just a symptom of the disease and the disease is in the industry. If we had more diversity in our films it would be reflected in diversity in the nominees."

What's saddest about people being cruel towards Jessica after this statement is that they probably fear her more for being an articulate and rational woman rather than an actress calling for a little bit of change.
