Jessica Chastain was born on March 24, 1977 in the USA. Jerri was born to Renee Hastey (née Chastain) and rock musician Michael Monasterio. He has two sisters and two brothers. Her sister Juliet died of suicide in 2003 after years of drug addiction. Chastain was raised in Sacramento by his mother and stepfather, Michael Hastey. He said that his stepfather was the first to make him feel safe.
Chastain first took an interest in acting at the age of seven, after his grandmother took him to the production of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. In 1998, Chastain completed his education at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and began his professional stage career as Juliet in the production of Romeo and Juliet, staged by TheatreWorks, a company in the San Francisco Bay Area. The production took him to audition for the Juilliard School in New York and was soon awarded a scholarship funded by actor Robin Williams. In his first year at school, Chastain was concerned and worried about being kicked out of the program, spending most of his time reading books and watching movies.
Shortly before graduating from Juilliard, Chastain attended an event held for seniors in Los Angeles and signed a talent deal with television producer John Wells. He moved to Los Angeles and started auditioning for a job. Initially, he found the process difficult, which is because other people thought it would be difficult for them to choose because he had an unusual looking redhead. He starred as Carolyn Stoddard in The WB’s first television trial in 2004, a pilot remake of the 1960s gothic soap opera Dark Shadows. In 2015, he was cast as a commander in Ridley Scott’s science fiction movie The Martian. Starring Matt Damon as a botanist stranded on Mars by a team of astronauts under the command of Chastain’s character, the film is based on Andy Weir’s novel of the same name.
Despite considerable media attention, Chastain keeps private confidential and prefers not to attend red carpet events with her partner. He sees himself as a “shy” person and said in 2011 that he enjoys family activities like walking dogs and playing ukulele instead of partying. In the 2000s, Chastain was in a long-term relationship with writer-director Ned Benson, and that relationship ended in 2010. In 2012, Passi de Preposulo, who was the manager of the fashion brand Moncler, started dating Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, the Italian count of the noble family. He married Preposulo on 10 June 2017 at his family’s estate in Carbonera, Italy. In 2018, the couple had a daughter. They live in New York.
