Jessica Chastain is remember the time when Taylor Swift helped her through a difficult breakup.
During her appearance on Friday’s (Dec. 15) episode of The Tonight Show, the Memory actress revealed how the pop superstar kindly shared a breakup playlist after their first meeting at the Met Gala in 2011.
“It was 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 next to Ryan Murphy, who was just started to become successful with all his TV shows,” Chastain told host Jimmy Fallon. “She was so sweet. I just went through a breakup and I was talking to her about that. We went and danced together — it was such a fun night.”
Shortly after meeting, the Scenes from a Marriage star discovered a special email from Swift waiting in her inbox.
“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,” the Oscar-winning actress said. “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.”
Chastain and Swift recently met up again during the “Cruel Summer” singer’s Eras Tour stop in Mexico City this summer. After the show, the actress shared a carousel of photos and videos of herself at the show, including a snap of her with Swift backstage.
“Spamming u w really good @taylorswift Eras Tour content,” she captioned the post.
