Actress Jessica Chastain is hoping for a little more luck after her successes in 2011 because it took years for any of her movies to be released.

The actress, who won acclaim for her roles in The Debt, The Help and The Tree of Life last year, felt sure there was a Hollywood "Chastain curse" hanging over her after only one of her first 11 movies hit the big screen before her stellar 2011.

Speaking on the red carpet at the Golden Globes on Sunday, she said, "I made my first movie four years ago and I had made 11 movies before one came out in the mo...
