KIM KARDASHIAN INSPIRES JESSICA CHASTAIN’S ‘MOLLY’S GAME’ LOOK!

Jessica Chastain underwent a dramatic transformation to play Molly Bloom in the Aaron Sorkin drama, Molly’s Game. Bloom was a woman who ran the world’s most exclusive high stakes poker game, catering to the Hollywood and business elite.

However, you might be surprised just how the 40-year achieved her look. Enter Kim Kardashian. Yes, Kim Kardashian. Speaking to W Magazine, Chastain shared, “For research, I actually watched Kim’s tutorial on face shading and contouring.”

“As the movie goes on, Molly transforms into this idea of what a woman has to be in order to be heard: The heels get higher, the necklines are lower, the hair is longer. It was quite a departure for me, physically. And the strange thing is, I don’t look like myself at all in this film, and so many people have said to me that I’ve never looked better.”

More broadly, when thinking about what women have to do to gain power in society, the Kardashians came to Chastain’s mind in the way they built an empire for themselves.

Chastain offered, “I thought about what women have to become in order to find power in a society where men are making all of the rules. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh — the Kardashians are an incredible example of women who have their own sense of entrepreneurial power.'”

And it looks like the tutorials worked, because Chastain’s coutouring was on point!

‘MOLLY’S GAME’ IS IN THEATERS NOW.
