We threw up quite a surprise when we announced who we had voted as our Man of the Year 2011 but when it comes to the Woman of the Year 2011 there can only really be one winner. Yes, it is safe to say that there are plenty of women who have had a good year in 2011 and could easily argue their case for Woman of the Year 2011 but we think one woman outshone all the rest this year.
Obviously you could argue a case for Beyoncé, as she has once again been quite the dominant force in 2011. Not only has Beyoncé released a number of top singles but she has also released another impressive album. Add to that the fact that Beyoncé is due to give birth to her first child with husband Jay-Z and it has been a fantastic year for Beyoncé
However, it has not been as big a year as the one that Jessica Chastain has had, which is why we have voted her our Woman of the Year 2011. Jessica has really come in to her own in 2011 and her diversity as an actress and the fact that she has had six films out in 2011, all add up to making her 2011 stand above that of any other woman this year.
At the start of the year Jessica Chastain was often getting confused with Bryce Dallas Howard, with many people struggling to know who Jessica was. However, after six impressive movie performances, Jessica Chastain has now become a reason that many people will go and see a movie and rightly so.
Jessica Chastain has worked with some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Al Pacino, Brad Pitt and Michael Fassbender and has proven that she is more than capable of holding her own among the best. 2011 has really been a breakthrough year for Jessica and she does not appear to be letting up, as she already has four movies scheduled to be released in 2012.
The ability that Jessica Chastain has to adapt to any role, be it a gritty thriller, a light hearted drama or a full on comedy, makes her one of the most sought after actresses in the business. We tip Jessica Chastain to be a huge star for many years to come and her success and performances this year is why we have made Jessica Chastain our Woman of the Year 2011.
