Jessica Chastain wins Best Actress in a Leading Role for ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’.
The US biographical drama, which Jessica Chastain starred in and co-produced, tells the story of a real-life American TV evangelist.
The actress said she was inspired by Faye’s radical acts of love.
“I’m inspired by her compassion,” she said. “I see it as a guiding principle that leads us forward, and it connects us all in the desire that we want, to be accepted for who we are, accepted for who we love, and to live a life without the fear of violence or terror.”
She continued: “And for any of you out there who do in fact feel hopeless or alone, I just want you to know that you are unconditionally loved for the uniqueness that is you.”
