Jessica Chastain


Jessica Chastain is Hawaii-bound.

The Zero Dark Thirty star has been added to the exclusive list of honorees at this year's Maui Film Festival.

Chastain will be receive the prestigious Nova Award.

"Few film artists are as talent and versatile as Jessica Chastain," festival director Barry Rivers said in a statement. "She has made this clear in the range of characters she has brought to life in her chameleon-like silver screen performances. Jessica is a one-of-a-kind and we couldn't be more pleased to honor her."

Past Nova recipients include Claire Danes, Felicity Huffman, Zooey Deschanel and James Marsden.

As we first told you, Kirsten Dunst and 21 Jump Street's Brie Larson will also be honored at the film fest, which kicks off June 12 at the Wailea Resort in Maui.

Here's hoping it's someone's birthday at the festival.
