Jessica Chastain opened her “Saturday Night Live” monologue by talking about the Women’s March. She then sang, “You Don’t Own Me.” See the video below of Chastain’s “SNL” monologue.

This marks Chastain’s debut as the host of “SNL.” In advance of her appearance, Chastain was a guest on Thursday’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and discussed being on the sketch comedy series. She confessed to Fallon, “I am so nervous.” And hours before hitting the stage for her monologue, Chastain tweeted, “Are you watching? Im having fever sweats.”

But Chastain told Fallon a couple of days ago that she’s received some advice from past “SNL” hosts Sam Rockwell, Gal Gadot and Amy Schumer. The redheaded actress related that Gadot told her, “It should be fine for [Chastain] because English is my first language.” Schumer suggested, “Just make sure you play everything super serious, like your life depends on it.” And Rockwell told her “to make sure I drank water and stayed hydrated.”

Her appearance on “SNL” comes on the heels of the release of Chastain’s new movie Molly’s Game, which is about real-life “poker princess,” Molly Bloom who illegally ran a private card game club in Los Angeles and New York before being busted by FBI agents. Idris Elba, Kevin Costner and Michael Cera also star in the film.

Chastain’s portrayal of Bloom has earned tremendous praise. A week ago Thursday, she was up for the best actress award at the Critics’ Choice Awards. And two weeks ago Sunday, Chastain was nominated for best supporting actress in a motion picture at the Golden Globes.

Already 2018 is shaping up to be a big year for Chastain. In addition to hosting “SNL,” her movies The Death And Life of John F. Donovan and X-Men: Dark Phoenix are set for release later this year. And she’s just begun production on George And Tammy, a film about married country singers George Jones and Tammy Wynette.

Check out the video below of Chastain’s first “Saturday Night Live” monologue in which she sang about the Women’s March.
