“This is such a sweet letter Craig. I loved going to the Baftas and meeting people on the red carpet. It was a very special day. I’m sure I heard you say that to me! Thank you for your kindness and your generous heart. It was a very cold day in London, but meeting people like you made me numb to the weather. xx” – Jessica Chastain
