And she’s successfully breaking through the mold, “I am not one to go for traditional females roles because I don’t think traditionally female characters are very interesting, and I don’t think they represent real life,” she explained. “I am working hard to break free of stereotypes that the film industry has created and nurtured around women.”

But Chastain’s mission to inspire young girls takes the front seat when choosing a film: “I believe that the energy you put into the world is what you get back. So I’m trying to put something positive out there, something to inspire girls to go into science, to run for office, to try and join the space program.”

In addition to choosing her movie parts carefully, the 40-year-old “Zookeeper’s Wife” actress says she will no longer accept anything less than equal pay, “If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less.

Adding, “It’s not really part of my world anymore because I just won’t accept it.”

Chastain plays Molly Bloom in the upcoming biopic “Molly’s Game”, following the Olympic skier who later ran the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker games. Bloom eventually became an FBI target.

“Molly’s Game” opens Dec. 25.
