“She curated all these breakup songs to send me to help me get through my breakup,” the actress said on ‘The Tonight Show.’
It’s been more than a decade since Jessica Chastain first met Taylor Swift, but she’ll never forget when the pop star helped her get through a breakup.
On Friday’s episode of The Tonight Show, the Memory star recalled meeting the “Cruel Summer” singer-songwriter at the Met Gala in 2011.
“It was like the first year I was invited to the Met Ball, first year I had movies out, and we were both sitting next to each other. We were like next to Ryan Murphy, who was just started to become successful with all his TV shows,” Chastain told host Jimmy Fallon. “And she was so sweet. I just went through a breakup and I was talking to her about that. And, you know, we went and danced together. It was such a fun night.”
Little did the Molly’s Game actress realize she would wake up the next morning to a special email in her inbox from someone who is known for her iconic breakup tracks.
“The next day, I had an e-mail from iTunes that said, like Taylor Swift, whatever, and I just thought it was a Taylor Swift album,” Chastain recalled. “She had made me a breakup playlist that she sent me. Isn’t that the sweetest thing? … And here I thought it was like a Taylor Swift advertisement. And I was like, wait a minute? She curated all these breakup songs to send me to help me get through my breakup.”
Swift and Chastain recently reunited at one of the Grammy-winning singer’s Eras Tour stops in Mexico City in August. At the time, the actress shared a carousel of photos from the night on Instagram with the caption, “Spamming u w really good @taylorswift Eras Tour content.”
