Fans ascribe more roles to Chastain than she really is, due to the fact that the actress is often confused with her colleague Bryce Dallas Howard. They are not very similar in terms of parameters: Jessica’s height is 163 cm, Bryce is 170, Chasten’s weight is 50 kg, and colleagues are 63 kg, but they adhere to a similar image and both wear long bright red hair.
