Hollywood star Jessica Chastain insists she never takes on a role for the paycheck

Jessica Chastain never takes on a role for the paycheck.

The 'Interstellar' actress said she's not interested in how much money she's offered to play a part, insisting she won't accept a role unless it's right for her.

She told The Independent newspaper: "I've been very lucky when I choose a film, I don't think of the paycheck first. I think, when we end the film, how are we going to be more enriched as human beings?

"For me I've never taken a role and thought I'll get something out of this. If you think, 'I'll get recognition', often the opposite happens."

The 37-year-old star shot to fame after playing an agent hunting Osama bin Laden in 2012 movie 'Zero Dark Thirty', but Jessica insists she still doesn't feel like a celebrity.

She explained: "I don't get used to it, I feel like I've found a place in the industry, but that I'm observing everyone. That I've got into the coolest concert ever, and I'm backstage and I get to hang out with the [Rolling] Stones. I don't feel like I'm part of a band."
