Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac sent the internet into a frenzy after their sexy Venice Film Festival appearance
Jessica Chastain explained her ‘chemistry’ with her married co-star Oscar Isaac after their sexy red carpet appearance.
The duo sent the internet into a meltdown after their powerful photos and clips from the Venice Film Festival went viral.
Jessica and Oscar – who both star in Scenes From A Marriage – were captured embracing in a slow-motion video.
She was posing with her arm draped around her co-star’s shoulder as he caressed her arm. They were seen gazing at each other when Oscar, 42, leaned over and kissed her arm.
During the 44-year-old’s appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, the topic turned to her and her co-star Oscar.
“I know where you’re going,” Jessica joked before Stephen said: “Then why don’t you say it for me. You guys go way back.”
Jessica confirmed Stephen’s comment and he continued: “You’re old friends. You’re old friends. So there’s nothing to be made of the footage we are about to roll.”
“We went to college together at Juilliard,” Jessica said.
Stephen went on to say that the two are both in “loving relationships with other people.”
Jessica is married to Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo while Oscar is married to screenwriter Elvira Lind. Both married their spouses in 2017.
“We have been friends for more than 20 years. If it hasn’t happened yet, it’s not going to happen. Sorry to tell everybody because I know people got very excited about this.”
Stephen played the slow-motion footage which sent the internet into a frenzy.
“It’s a slow-motion, it’s a slow-motion. And I’m looking straight ahead. I didn’t even realize what he was doing until the photographers laughed,” Jessica said of the footage.
Stephen quipped: “I’m not saying that you’re getting lost in Oscar Isaac, I’m saying Oscar Isaac is getting lost in Jessica Chastain.”
Jessica then went on to joke about the “power of her armpits” and said: “It’s a very strong force.”
The actress previously brushed off the moment and said it was just an accidental move on both parts.
Speaking to the Today show, Jessica revealed that Oscar was actually attempting to kiss her on her elbow before she moved her body.
She said: “I think it was really funny because when you look at it in regular speed, I’m looking straight ahead and he looks over at me and he just kind of goes to give me a peck on my elbow, and at the same time, I’m going to give him a hug.
“So all of a sudden, his face ends up in my armpit. He made a joke out of it. Look, he’s smiling there!,” she said as she watched the footage back on the show.
“All the photographers started laughing, and were like, ‘What just happened?'”
