Ringing in the New Year right, Jessica Chastain bares it all for British GQ's January 2013 issue.

Hot red lips, her signature fiery red hair and delicate porcelain skin, piercing blue eyes and smoldering stare, Jessica Chastain works her natural beauty in some barely-there lingerie and little else.

Shot by Ellen Von Unwerth, the cover features the 35-year-old actress rolling around in white sheets wearing a leopard-print bra and panties, while the inside shots show the actress in nothing other than her stilettos and bed-head strawberry waves.

"You Brits are usually so mean to your redheads. Why is that? In America it’s seen as a good thing. Look at Julia Roberts – she’s cool, right? I was working in Thailand and I’d be walking down the street and people – British people – would stop the car and scream, 'ginger!' at me," Chastain told the mag.

With her new movie Zero Dark Thirty set to hit theaters on December 19th, Chastain opens up to the British mag about working with Brad Pitt and her highly anticipated film.

"He didn’t have a huge entourage, nothing like that. He just showed up on his motorcycle on the very first day and went, 'Hi, I’m Brad.' You just heard the rumbling of his bike and he’d appear like James Dean, or Marlon Brando from The Wild One. He was kind, he was generous, he’d never heard of me but he never made me feel less."

On her role in Zero Dark Thirty, Chastian says, "This film will make news. We all think we know how it ended. We don’t. And this movie is about how it really ended. It is shocking. When I first read the script, I was blown away by this woman. The sacrifices she made and what she had to do. It’s something I still get very emotional about. What happens when you live for this one goal? And then you achieve it."
