Jessica Chastain Learned To Fight Back After Kicking Her Mom's Boyfriend In The Balls

"He never messed with me again."

In a new interview with WSJ. Magazine, Jessica Chastain recalled the time she defended herself against her mom's boyfriend.

"And I was telling him to give me back my stuff — and he slapped me. I just kicked him in the genitals, and he fell to the ground immediately. Then I ran out of the house."

During the time of the incident, the Golden Globe winner remembered being around her siblings. Everyone was shocked and somewhat confused about what just happened.


The 40-year-old actress has since given her leg a rest and used her voice to fight back against several social issues, including gender inequality, defunding DACA, and sexual harassment by standing in solidarity with movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp.
