In Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica Chastain convincingly plays Maya, a key officer in the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.


Actress Jessica Chastain says she doesn't wish to do similar roles or get labeled.

The 35-year-old, who has worked in movies like Tree Of Life, The Help and Zero Dark Thirty, wants to keep trying something different.

"If someone tries to type me, I'm super stubborn and I will do the opposite. Tree of Life is one of my favourite things I've ever done. That character was probably the greatest gift I've ever been given," MTV News quoted Chastain as saying.

"But the second I found out people were typing me, I was like, I'll show you! I'll do the exact opposite of a Terrence Malick (director of Tree of Life)...I'm going to do a horror film. And I'm going to play the opposite of a good mother," she added.
