Jessica Chastain was in, like, 50 movies last year. (OK, seven.) The busy ginger lass got an Oscar nomination for The Help and may get another one for the upcoming Zero Dark Thirty, but it sounds like she'd also like a boyfriend. It's even harder to win one of them!


Jessica, 35, is on the new cover of Marie Claire, and she admitted she's "very shy" when it comes to men. "I like to be wooed," she told the magazine (via Us Weekly). A friend of hers warned her that, now that she's successful, she's going to have to make it clear when she's interested or men will be too intimidated to approach her.

But not only is she not that flirtatious, she's not likely to run into a potential new man at a cocktail party or club. "I don't really drink, and I've never been to a rave," Jessica said. "I used to cut school to read Shakespeare, not to make out in the park."

Now that she's said this, she can probably go to a local bookstore and just peer over some novels to make "come woo me" eye contact with willing potential b-friends. Or maybe we should set her up with a fellow theater buff. A serious actor/playwright/whatever who doesn't like all that Hollywood partying. Suggestions?
