Jessica Chastain and Jeremy Strong's Dance Party Is a Glimpse Into Their Decades-Long Friendship
Well, looks like another invite got lost in the mail! Jessica Chastain and Jeremy Strong had a late-night dance party in a video shared to Instagram on Sept. 23. In the clip, which offered a glimpse into their longtime friendship, the two actors wore sunglasses and danced around their hotel room as Madonna's "Hung Up" played in the background. Strong also seemed to be responsible for lighting, stepping on the hotel lamp to the beat of the music before disappearing behind a curtain. "This is what happens when you let Jeremy Strong and I stay up past our bedtimes #4AM," Chastain wrote.
Unsurprisingly, this isn't the first time Chastain and Strong have partied together. In fact, their impromptu hotel music video is actually just a small part of a friendship that spans more than 20 years. In that time, the actors have worked together on three films, including "Zero Dark Thirty," "Molly's Game," and "Armageddon Time."
Chastain also came to Strong's defense in 2021 after a controversial New Yorker interview detailing his method acting. "I've known Jeremy Strong for 20 yrs & worked with him on 2 films. He's a lovely person. Very inspiring & passionate about his work. The profile that came out on him was incredibly one sided," she wrote on X.
Chastain and Strong showed off their moves earlier in the night at an afterparty for Gucci's spring fashion show at Milan Fashion Week. Once again dancing to Madonna, they jumped around to "Like a Prayer" with celebrities like Julia Garner and Paul Mescal, as shown in a video. Below, see how they kept the party going well past their bedtimes, as only true friends can.
