Rumors of bad blood between Oscar-nominated actresses Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain have been making the rounds for years now, ever since both talented beauties were nominated in the same category back in 2013. Lawrence walked away with the victory and the rumors were never put to rest.
In an interview with Haute Living Magazine, Chastain was keen to shed light on the true situation between she and Lawrence. Vogue U.K. relays the words spoken by Chastain during the interview on the subject of Lawrence.
“I know during Oscar season the media, because they were trying to get headlines and get clicks, they were trying to fabricate a fake rivalry between Jennifer Lawrence and myself. I immediately came out and said, ‘This is a media myth that has to stop.’ The women I know are not like this and I cheer for women to succeed, because I know when an actress succeeds that means there’s going to be that many more roles for women because an audience is going to demand it.”
