Jessica Chastain is such an emotionally powerful, dynamic and expressive actor in her many films, and has made a number of comments that relate to being highly sensitive.
“I’m very sensitive in real life. I cannot not cry if someone around me is crying…even if it’s not appropriate. I have that thing in me, a weakness or sensitivity.”
“I’m inspired by people who are so sensitive and vulnerable that they try to cover it up.”
[on rehearsals] “They’ll say, Save it, save it. I tell them: Don’t worry. I have a bottomless well of tears.”
“I’m not the girl at the club on the table. I’m going to be the one in the corner, quiet and so I don’t call attention to myself.”
Her comment about “weakness or sensitivity” probably reflects the kinds of disparaging attitudes and criticism many non-sensitive people have about those who are sensitive.

The personality trait of high sensitivity for many of us includes emotional intensity
Crying easily is a form of being intensely emotional that many highly sensitive people share.
