Jessica Chastain Moving Into Soho Mews

Chastain is so(ho) moving to the Mews.

Soho Mews may not feature the Tree of Life, but the apartment building has a certain charm for the Hollywood set.

Actress Jessica Chastain has rented a pad at 311 West Broadway, reports the New York Post. Ms. Chastain has settled on a two-bedroom, two-bathroom spot on the third floor, according to the Post. We assume she may have had some “help” from a broker, whom the Post claims may have also helped her seal the deal on an apartment purchase.

The actress is in town filming “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” and was apparently motivated, as are so many of the city’s monied visitors, to pick up some real estate while she was here. (Although we’d expect that Ms. Chastain, a Julliard graduate, spent some serious time scoping out ideal neighborhoods when she lived here before.)

Ms. Chastain will be in good celebrity company at Soho Mews, joining residents Justin Timberlake and designer scion Moises de la Renta.
