Jessica did not take much time off after winning the Academy Award for Best Actress in late March.

She took home the award for her performance in The Eyes of Tammy Faye, in which she played Tammy Faye Bakker, the wife of Jim Bakker. The pair preached at a megachurch in the 1970s and 1980s before Jim ended up in prison for financial crimes.

Chastain’s nomination was her third Oscar nomination but just her first win. She was previously nominated as Best Supporting Actress in The Help and Best Actress in Zero Dark Thirty.

She won the award over Kristen Stewart for Spencer, Olivia Colman for The Lost Daughter, Penélope Cruz for Parallel Mothers and Nicole Kidman for Being the Ricardos.  

The Juilliard alum’s career isn’t slowing down at all. She recently completed filming on The Good Nurse, a film about serial killer Charles Cullen who allegedly murdered as many as 300 patients in 16 years while working as a nurse.

Eddie Redmayne will play Cullen while Chastain will star as Amy Loughren, a fellow nurse that helped the police take him down.

She currently has two other films in pre-production. The first, titled The Division, is set in an apocalyptic near future where a team of professionals is sent in to save as many people as they can from a deadly virus in New York City.

The other movie, Mothers’ Instinct, follows two men living charmed lives until a tragic accident completely uproots everything they hold near and dear. Fellow Oscar winner Anne Hathaway will work with Chastain on that movie.

Peter was recently seen in Matt Reeves’ dark superhero movie The Batman, which premiered in early March. He played Gotham D.A. Gil Colson with Robert Pattinson starring as Bruce Wayne/The Batman and Zoe Kravitz appearing as Selina Kyle/Catwoman.
