WATCH: Jessica Chastain goes full gay icon in biopic The Eyes of Tammy Faye
We love Jessica Chastain. When she’s not kicking ass she’s making you cry, smashing it in everything she does from comedy to action to drama.
She’s BACK in the trailer for new movie The Eyes of Tammy Faye telling the story of 70s gay icon (you guessed it!) Tammy Faye. With slapped on make-up, huge hair and a voice to match, she was the wife of televangelist Jim Bakker who eventually cheated on her and stole $150 million from his viewers. You just gotta LOVE those televangelists!
As you can see in the trailer she was also an advocate for gay rights, famously interviewing a man dying of AIDS on her TV show. This obviously made her quite the pariah within the evangelical faith community but ever so popular with the gays.
Also starring Andrew Garfield, Vincent D’Onofrio and Cherry Jones, The Eyes of Tammy Faye is out in theatres everywhere on September 17. Check out the trailer below.
