Looks like the Hollywood star enjoyed herself on our sunny island

If you were at Universal Studios Singapore (USS) yesterday (3 Apr), you might have rubbed shoulders with some Hollywood stars. Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron and Jessica Chastain were at the USS red carpet event for the Asian premiere of The Huntsman: Winter’s War.

Of the three Hollywood celebs, it seems like Jessica Chastain has adapted best to our island city-state — she even indulged in a local favourite most foreigners would shun (more later!).

Just check out what she has been up to:

1. Visiting Gardens By The Bay

Maybe the award-winning actress is hinting for a Jurassic Park sequel to be filmed in SG?

2. Sari shopping

What’s a trip to Singapore without visiting Little India?

And last but not least…

3. Indulging in durians

Found my favorite fruit! #durian

Yup, the American actress likes durians so much she calls it her favourite fruit.

How did her love affair with this thorny fruit begin?

In an interview with Channel NewsAsia, Chastain revealed:

I love durian. I spent about four months in Thailand about 10 years ago and fell in love with it, and also mangosteen.

The first bite you have to be a little brave. It’s like the blue cheese of fruit right? It has kind of a stinky taste, but once you take the first bite, the second bite’s amazing.
