Jessica Chastain Covers Marie ClaireMarie Claire's December issue hits newsstands on November 20th—and we have a sneak peek of the Jessica Chastain cover (and a photo from the cover shoot, inside!).

Check out some of the choicest bits from her interview, below.

On attending Juiliiard: "I never wanted to be a movie star. I wanted to be an actor. I don't really drink, and I've never been to a rave. I used to cut school to read Shakespeare, not to make out in the park."

On success: "I used to have a lot of anxiety about how I was going to stay afloat, because as soon as I graduated, I never asked my parents for money. I always supported myself through acting and would make money last a long time. I undersatnd the value of money, and I'm not an impulsive buyer. I bought a new laptop three years ago, and before I bought it, I spent a month thinking about buying it. So my lifestyle hasn't changed, except my anxiety about paying the rent is gone."

On meeting men: "I'm very shy when it comes to guys. I like to be wooed, but I've had to be more outwardly available, I guess."
