'Tom Cruise changed my career'

Friday, April 07, 2017

Hollywood star Jessica Chastain has thanked Tom Cruise for changing the course of her career after he helped her secure a role in 'Zero Dark Thirty'.

The 40-year-old flame-haired actress has revealed she owes her role in the political action-thriller to Cruise, who used his considerable influence to help Chastain star in the hit movie about the real-life search for Osama bin Laden, rather than his own film 'Oblivion'.

"I got cold-called by (director) Kathryn Bigelow. I was in Toronto, and I had heard from (producer) Megan Ellison. We had done a film, 'Lawless', together," she said.

"And she said, 'By the way, do you know Kathryn Bigelow's is trying to get hold of you? She wants to meet with you on something.' And I was like, 'What? Please give her my number'.” "I was signed to do another movie (at the time). I was contractually obligated to do something else that I was really wanting to do, and I was excited to do. But when this came my way, I realised I had to do this," the actress added.
