Posted Friday December 7, 2012 12:57 PM GMT

With her new movie "Zero Dark Thirty" set to hit theaters on December 19, Jessica Chastain soaked up the spotlight by covering the January 2013 "Art Issue" of W magazine.

The 35-year-old actress looked picture perfect in four of the magazine's multiple cover for photographers Max Vadukul, Rineke Dijkstra, Chantal Joffe, and Mickalene Thomas shot front page dishing about everything from working with artists to playing dress up.

A few highlights from Miss Chastain's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to W!

On working with artists:
"As a little girl, I wanted to be Diana Ross in that movie. And when I put on the red Afro wig, I finally felt like her. I love the feeling of giving myself over to another strong point of view. It’s the best kind of trust—the belief that an artist will take care of me while creating something unique. I wanted to slow down the mad monkey of the mind in order to cultivate a kind of inner calm that would translate to the film. I knew I had to give myself over to the movie and to Terry [Malick]. That kind of immersion is so wonderful—it’s why I love working with artists."
