Jessica Chastain is well aware of the effect she had on viewers as the lead in the space opera Interstellar (2014). Speaking with PEOPLE on April 13 at the Tenth Breakthrough Prize event held at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles, Chastain mentioned that more than ten years later, her character from the movie is still very much on people’s minds.

“I’ve had a lot of people just yell, ‘Murph’ at me,” she said, adding, “‘Murph.’” A lot of the time, I’m like, ‘Yes, physics.’” In the Academy Award-winning movie, Chastain portrayed Murphy ‘Murph’ Cooper, an adventurous NASA scientist who, along with her father, Joseph Cooper (Matthew McConaughey), uses a wormhole to fly across the galaxy in an attempt to save humanity from the end of the Earth.

In addition to fans expressing their admiration for Chastain in Interstellar, the actress said that some couples have given her the ultimate tribute by naming their kids after Murph. Many couples have informed me that they have named their kids Murph after the movie Interstellar. “I thought, ‘Maybe this indicates that it will benefit science’,” Chastain joked.

The actress added that she hopes Guiletta, her kid, will eventually learn to love science. She said, “A theoretical physicist, that is to say. Yes, my daughter. Come on, let’s go!” The celebrity also mused, “I wish I had known how glamorous science could be when I was younger.”

Chastain previously discussed her daughter’s goals in a 2022 interview with Marie Clare. She has mostly kept her children with her husband, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, out of the spotlight.

Jessica said, “When you’re talking to kids it’s like, ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?'” The actress added, ” ‘I want to be a ballerina.’ And she (Chastain’s daughter) was like, ‘I want to be a mama.’ And I was like, ‘That’s a great thing to be. But you know, you can be more than one thing.’ She’s like, ‘What do you mean?'”

“Well, look at me, honey,” I said. “I am a mother. Actress is what I do. I produce things. I own my own business. I’m a companion. I’m a chef. I began enumerating everything,” Chastain went on at the moment, revealing she told her daughter further: “Like, I am many things, so you can be whatever you want.”

Jessica Chastain’s recent project, Mothers’ Instinct, is a feature film written and directed by renowned cinematographer Benoît Delhomme, making his directorial debut. The film is partially based on the Belgian film version of the 2012 thriller Derrière la haine (Behind the Hate) by Barbara Abel.
