Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac's red carpet appearance had gone way beyond people's expectations. With their perfect chemistry, they blew people away with a steamy moment, a nod to their co-star roles in 'Scenes from a Marriage.' The two's amazing performance in the new HBO miniseries made the gesture such a huge tease to fans and viewers!
The 44-year-old was draping her hand over Isaac's shoulder and posed for the cameramen. The man then moved to kiss the inner side of her arm tenderly, sending fans screaming with anticipation. Chastain, who seemed slightly surprised, laughed and pulled him in for a hug.
The heated moment had sparked some rumors among the already-married celebrities, much similar to that between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper.

Jessica later shares her thoughts on the viral red carpet moment with the "Today" show.

"We're acting, but also Oscar and I have been friends. We went to college together, so we've been friends more than half of our lives," said the woman. "We know so much about each other. We know how to make each other laugh."
They indeed attended the same school at Juilliard School in Manhattan.
She added that while the scene looked hot in slow-mo, it was actually funny in regular speed.
Jessica recalled, "When you look at it in regular speed, I'm looking straight ahead and he looks over at me and he just kind of goes to give me a peck on my elbow, and at the same time, I'm going to give him a hug,"
As it turns out, Isaac's kiss might have been a miss!
"So all of a sudden, his face ends up in my armpit. He made a joke out of it. Look, he's smiling there!"
Married! Jessica Chastain is happily married to her husband Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo in 2017.
