Jessica Chastain on Failure

Happy 39th Birthday Jessica Chastain! (24th March 1977)

“I’m trying to not play it safe. I learn more when I fail than when I succeed, so if I push myself to do something that’s really difficult, I could fail and I’ll learn a lot. I’ll be awful, but I’ll still learn a lot from it. But if I don’t fail, then I’ll be in a great movie. I hope to be the kind of actor that isn’t always great.”

— Jessica Chastain, American actress who is known for her roles in films such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Martian, The Help, and Mama.
