Coming fresh off of a Golden Globe win for Zero Dark Thirty, Jessica Chastain takes on a jarringly different role in the new Guillermo del Toro-produced film, Mama. You might be thinking that the actress has an eerie resemblance to Alice Glass of Crystal Castles in the movie, which, as it turns out, was not a coincidence. Via Indiewire:
How did you come up with the look for this character? I imagine Guillermo gave you the tentacle tattoo.
No it was Andy! At first he said, “I want to put an octopus down your arm.” And I said, “Okay, I love the idea of the tattoos but why an octopus?” He said: “Because, when a tentacle gets stuck, it detaches. I think Annabelle must see herself like that.” I said: “That is genius, I love it, let’s do it!” And the haircut was Alice Glass inspired. [Alice Glass is the lead singer of the Canadian electro-punk band Crystal Castles.]
