Zero Dark Thirty Kyle Chandler: Jessica Chastain beauty is distracting

By
Kyle Chandler has joked that he was often distracted by Jessica Chastain while shooting Zero Dark Thirty.

The actor quipped to Access Hollywood that Chastain's beauty made it tough to focus on Zero Dark Thirty's story of the hunt to capture Osama Bin Laden.

"She is very difficult to work with and I'll tell you why. The scene, especially when you get up close to her, it's very hard to do because her eyes are so intensely blue you fall into them. Literally," Chandler teased.

He added: "When you watch the scene where we go at each other... [I can watch myself and know], that's when I was like, 'OK, how deep do your eyes - how far do they go? My God! I see the back of your skull'. It's incredible.

"She's very beautiful. I had a lot of fun working with her."

Chandler went on to say that he is immensely proud of director Kathryn Bigelow's movie, which has been met with wide acclaim from reviewers.

"It's nice when you sit into a movie that you've done and you go. 'Wow, I'm part of something really spectacular here'. I mean really spectacular," he explained.

American Psycho writer Bret Easton Ellis is apparently less enthusiastic about Zero Dark Thirty, having said this week that Bigelow is an "overrated" director.

Zero Dark Thirty opens in the US on December 19 and in the UK on January 25. Watch a trailer for the film below:
