Jessica Chastain speaks to Stylist about taking on the role of CIA agent Maya in Kathryn Bigelow directed drama Zero Dark Thirty. The film is based on real life events and characters caught up in the hunt for Osama bin Laden and the highly contentious War on Terror. Jessica, who has been nominated for an Oscar for her performance, explains how she separated herself from the politics of the movie and why she can't resist a challenge. See what she has to say, along with preview clips of the film, below.

Zero Dark Thirty is released in UK cinemas from today (25 January)
