Jessica Chastain got trippy at the SAG Awards 2023 Sunday night.
The Oscar winner, 45, tripped on her fuchsia dress as she walked up to the podium to accept the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series for her role in “George & Tammy.”
In the series, Chastain played country singer Tammy Wynette opposite Michael Shannon, who played one of Wynette’s husbands, country superstar George Jones.
However, once the embarrassment of her fall passed, she took the stage to share that, after her current Broadway show, “A Doll’s House,” she will meet with fans outside the stage doors, including actors.
“It reminds me of when I was in college Philip Seymour Hoffman came to speak to my class and he told us all of his frustrating stories about auditions and he encouraged us to keep going even if it felt like no one was watching us,” the 45-year-old actress shared.
“And at the end of the talk he said, ‘I look forward to working with each of you and it really shocked me because it was like he brought it into being,” she continued. “A few years later it became true when I had the opportunity to do a play with him and I’m telling this story now because it reminds me of how powerful our mind is.”
Chastain concluding giving a shout-out to “everyone who might be struggling at home, to all the actors I get to meet, keep going. You’re one job away, I look forward to working with you and I’ll see you on set and I love you.”
During the award show, Chastain first caught fans’ eyes when she was seemingly the only actor wearing her mask at her table, possibly to protect her voice for her Broadway role.
