Making people do a double take as she walked the red carpet, star of Zero Dark Thirty Jessica Chastain could not have looked less like the under the radar CIA agent she plays in the gritty war thriller.
The Oscar nominated actress appeared to be flashing more of her body then she meant to as she arrived at the premiere of her much buzzed about new film in Hollywood, California on Monday.
Her blue dress appeared to be see-though across The Help star’s chest due nude panels underneath its lace inserts.
Despite looking near naked the 35-year-old strode confidently down the red carpet in gold strappy stilettos.
With her iconic red hair simply styled, the actress looked understatedly glamorous at the Dolby Theatre event.
Joining her on the carpet was her co-star from the film about the struggle to find Osama bin Laden post 9/11, Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez.
Stars of the film Chris Pratt – who bought his wife actress Anna Farris, Soparanos actor James Gandolfini and Harold Perrineau also attended the premiere.
Set for release in New York and Los Angeles on December 19, and the rest of America in January, the film is already creating Oscar buzz for both Jessica and its director Katheryn Bigelow.
Kathryn – who was once married to Avatar director James Cameron – was the first female to win best director at the 2009 Academy Awards for Hurt Locker. Her then newly divorced husband was also nominated for the same title that year.
The film is however, also generating controversy before it has even hit theatres.
Star Jessica was forced to defend the war thriller denying it was pro-torture propaganda as some have accused it of being.
‘I’m very excited that people are now seeing the film and they’re realizing it’s not a propaganda film and it doesn’t have an agenda,” the actress said when attending a Los Angeles press junket for the film.
