There's no doubt Jessica Chastain knows a thing or two about striking a pose for a magazine cover. One need only look at the radiant cover girl on the December 2013 issue of Vogue for proof!

But the fashion glossy also decided to expose the less-publicized photo shoots celebs often unwittingly pose for. 

We're talking, of course, about the fan-lensed cell phone pic. You know, those shots that starstruck folks often try to surreptitiously snap when they encounter a celebrity in—gasp!—real life.

In a cheeky video called Scripted Content and directed by Matthew Frost, the Oscar-nominated actress gamely portrays herself potentially falling victim to one such fan as she innocently sits on a New York Park bench.

"I just sat down next to Jessica CHASTAIN," the fan excitedly texts his girlfriend.

Said girlfriend replies with a series of totally reasonable questions and demands, including, "STFU what's she doing?" and "OMG what's she wearing??," as well as "Take a picture! TAKE. A. PICTURE. NOW."

The funny short is part of Vogue's new video series, which launched with a Kate Winslet clip of the actress hilariously Googling herself.

"They were both amazingly cooperative and they're both so smart," said Frost, who also shot Winslet. "It's great when someone is so established that they're ready to poke fun at themselves freely.

Watch Chastain's video to see how the star deals with her would-be photographer—and for more of the fan's funny texts!
