Jessica Chastain: This two-time Academy Award nominee has had a long road to the top, which was aided by a leading role opposite Al Pacino in a stage production of Salome, which got her noticed by Hollywood casting directors. Her first film role in 2008 indie "Jolene" led to roles in "The Debt," "Take Shelter" and "Tree of Life" before she found mainstream success in "The Help."
