Red-heads have more fun … at least according to Jessica Chastain they do.

The 35-year-old actress opened up to InStyle UK about how her now-famous locks almost cost her her acting career, and also dished to the mag on her number one dating rule — no actors!

Highlights from Miss Chastain's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to InStyle UK!

On dating in Hollywood:
"I have a rule. No actors. I realized I wanted just to be able to hang out with someone — and I didn’t want to talk about the business, first of all. I love movies. But I love talking about them like when I was 15 years old. I’m a film fan, but I don’t want to talk about auditions or what movie I’m gonna do. I find that so boring.”

On her gorgeous red locks:
“There were a couple of times when I thought, ‘Maybe I should dye my hair blonde?’ Being a redhead and not having very conventionally modern looks, it was confusing for people and they didn’t know exactly where to put me.”

On her goals:
"Fame and money have not been my goals. This all happened from independent films. Not big pay cheques."
