THE NEW MOVIE "THE HELP," BASED ON THE BEST-SELLING NOVEL, JUST HIT THEATERS, AND YOU'LL PROBABLY RECOGNIZE A LOT OF FAMOUS FACES IN THE CAST. ALTHOUGH MAYBE NOT JESSICA CHASTAIN...THE ACTRESS IS OPENING UP ABOUT THE WEIGHT SHE PUT ON FOR THE ROLE. JESSICA CHASTAIN PLAYS CELIA FOOTE IN THE HELP...A MARILYN MONROE LOOK-ALIKE TRYING TO FIT IN WITH THE SOCIETY LADIES OF JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI. AND WHILE SHE'S GETTING RAVES FOR HER PERFORMANCE FROM CRITICS, IT'S HER APPEARANCE THAT'S CATCHING EVERYONE'S EYE. JESSICA SAYS SHE HAD TO GAIN 15 POUNDS FOR TO PLAY THE CURVY CELIA... HOW'D SHE DO IT? SOY ICE CREAM!!! SHE TELLS LONDON'S DAILY MAIL, "Soy helps you become curvy because it has estrogen in it. So what I would do—and this is really gross—is buy cartons of soy ice cream, microwave it and drink it. It was disgusting, but wait until you see my boobs in the movie." YEAH THAT DOES SOUND KINDA GROSS..."It was like a form of torture," SHE SAYS, "because you put on all this weight and then you're in the South where it's really hot and muggy and you're putting on girdles to suck you in." WHAT WASN'T TORTURE? TAKING THE WEIGHT OFF!!! "'I do a lot of yoga." SHE ADDS, "I'm also vegan, so that helps. I lose weight really quick." WOW...LUCKY LADY...
