Jessica Chastain’s Tony-Nominated Theater Return With ‘A Doll’s House’ Was Her Goal Post Oscar Win

Jessica Chastain was nearly unrecognizable at the 2023 Met Gala, swapping her signature red hair for a platinum blonde wig! “I prefer the red, just because it’s more me, but the great thing about what we do is we get to pretend to be other people,” she told Access Hollywood of her transformation. “I felt quite villainous with the sunglasses and the fabulous dress and jewelry and rings. It was fun to be on the red carpet and people mouthing ‘Who is she?’ I was like, ‘Haha!'” Jessica also reflected on her exciting return to the stage for “A Doll’s House,” a performance for which she was nominated for a Tony! She explained that getting back to the stage, which was where she got her start as a kid, was her goal after winning Best Actress at the 2022 Oscars. The 2023 Tony Awards air June 11 at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on CBS and Paramount+.
