Jessica Chastain unfortunately did not win a Golden Globe this weekend for her stunning performance in Molly’s Game – Frances McDormand won for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri – but her time will come because she’s a terrific actress.
In any case, it would seem that the weekend wasn’t a total loss since she was honoured with an accolade, albeait an unusual one.
Chastain appeared on the Spanish TV series El Hormiguero and during the show, was asked to participate in a no-blinking contest.
Despite the obvious discomfort she was in, which included tears at some point, the actress totally obliterated the previous record set by actress Margaret Qualley, by not blinking for over two minutes.
