Jessica Chastain – Age, Net Worth & Husband

Best known for her role in Zero Dark Thirty, and Miss Sloane, Jessica Chastain is synonymous with hard work and talent, no doubt. Her acting skills are always spot on which is why she has remained one of Hollywood’s most acclaimed talents over the past decade, gathering up notable awards and award nominations. On stage and on screen, she never goes wrong and that kind of gift is what carries on in all her works. When she is not on stage or acting on screen, you will find her producing magnificent works. The point is, you will never see her doing anything less than supreme.

Who is Jessica Chastain and How Old is She?

The Golden Globe award-winning actress was born on March 24, 1977, in Sacramento, Califonia. As a child, she lived in a northern residential area of Califonia with her mother, Jerri Renee Hastey and stepfather Micahel Hastey, a firefighter whom her mother married after being separated from Jessica’s biological father, Michael Monasterio, a rock musician.

Jessica Chastain has three siblings, two sisters, and a brother. Their mother worked as a vegan chef and was a middle-class earner. In this view, the four siblings didn’t have the most fascinating childhood in terms of financing.  More unfortunate is that Jessica’s sister resorted to drugs for several years before killing herself in 2003.

The actress attended EL Camino Fundamental High School in Sacramento but wasn’t really a school person as she had a difficult time coping with the school scheme. While school seemed very tough for her, she found reading Shakespeare a lot more comforting than reading school books. Feeling that she fit badly in school environs, she had to obtain an adult diploma later on after missing out on graduation for consistently being absent from school. Jessica Chastain proceeded to Sacramento City College for one year starting from 1996 to 1997.


Jessica loved acting from her childhood but started acting on stage professionally in 1998. She got the chance to play the role of Juliet in a stage production of Romeo and Juliet. This fetched her the attention she deserved and eventual scholarship to Julliard School which was fully sponsored by Robin Williams. In 2003, she became one of the hundreds of talented students that obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts and started gearing up for better opportunities. Shortly, she began to pick up TV roles in shows like Law & Order and many others. In 2008, she got a chance to appear in films and immediately climbed to stardom for performing outstandingly in Take Shelter and The Tree of Life.

This marked the birth of the star she is today. So far, she has a Golden Globe Award and several Academy Award nominations that are well deserved. Apart from becoming an award material who is always making the cut in award shows, Jessica has gone beyond stealing attention through acting to open her own production company. Its name is Freckle Films and she seems ready to explore this aspect the way it should.

Net Worth

The New Yorker who has racked up numerous Golden Globe nominations and has Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama award has been a regular face in high-profit making films such as The Martian, The Zero dark thirty, among others, so we don’t expert her net worth not to run in multiple millions of dollars. Since joining the film industry in 2004, she has successfully earned over $20 million.

Boyfriend or Husband and Children

Jessica is notoriously private and is always unwilling to disclose things about her personal life or family. Nonetheless, there are things she has not been able to keep entirely away from the public and that is the fact that she caught butterflies for a man who isn’t in the film industry. His name is Gian Luca Passi and he is six years younger than her. It is not clear when they first met or where but the two started dating in 2012 and they maintained a long-distance relationship for a year before Gian opted to move to New York in 2013 to stay close to his special other.

After several years of living in New York, Gian who is a fashion mogul decided to propose to Jessica in early 2017.  By mid that year, the two got married at Preposulo’s family estate in Carbonara, Italy. The couple has a daughter through surrogacy whom they welcomed in 2018.

If the name Gian rings a bell it is because he is from a famous ancient Italian noble family Passi de Preposulo, originally from Bergamo, Lombardy. His family produces their own Prosecco smartly named Prosecco di Villa Tiepolo Passi.

Outside his family’s wealth and fame, Gian has built a great profile for himself as well. He is an executive for Moncler, a French clothing company and his presence in the high fashion industry has earned him high profile friends such as  Julie Roberts, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Leonardo DiCaprio, among others.

Gian has also toed the path of his family, establishing his own brand of premium Prosecco named FIOL. The brand was founded on the basis of introducing a significant change in the culture surrounding Prosecco and other sparkling white wines so Prosecco will be everybody’s a first choice drink for all occasions.
