Jessica Chastain on Joaquin Phoenix in ‘The Master’

SAG Preview: Actors on Actors - Chastain on Phoenix

His performance was so brave. I know everyone says ‘brave’ for acting, but for me Joaquin Phoenix’s performance in ‘The Master’ was brave. It really was! Without vanity and an absolute transformation. What he did with his body. From the moment we see him on the screen, we understand so much about this character. And it’s so unlike all the other characters he’s ever done. When I saw him in this movie, I was just blown away.
