Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer Have 'The Help' Reunion at Golden Globes: 'We're Sisters' (Exclusive)

By

We were promised a The Help reunion at this year's Golden Globes on Sunday, with Allison Janney, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer nominated and Viola Davis presenting. Chastain and Spencer got the reunion off to a start on the red carpet, though it wasn't just Celia and Minny together again but a show of solidarity.

"We go way back. We're sisters," Chastain told ET's Kevin Frazier. "We're here for the Time's Up movement, our defense fund that will help protect men and women coming forward to fight against any sexual harassment, sexual assault and the fallout from coming forward."

Chastain has been a vocal force in the creation of the Time's Up initiative. "What pushes me is the courage that women and men have to be the first one to tell their story," she explained. "That's no small feat to do. I'm just blown away by the strength that that takes. I want to do whatever I can to amplify their voices and support them."

"Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington, America Ferrera, Jessica Chastain, they have been wonderful leaders for me and I'm just excited to be a part of this, because time's up and this time has come," Spencer added, turning to Chastain. "I'm proud of you."

"I'm proud of you! And everyone," Chastain replied. "There's really no leaders involved in this movement. This is a movement for everyone."

Chastain is nominated for Best Actress, Drama for Molly's Game and Spencer for Best Supporting Actress for The Shape of Water, but Chastain also made time to answer some of our very important questions. Like, is it true that her husband's family has their own line of prosecco? "That's true, man," she revealed. "It's starting out and it's delicious. I will say thank goodness for that, because the first time I tried I was like 'What if this is not good?'"

Secondly, how did she end up in Jay Z's "Family Feud" video? "I don't even know! I mean Ava DuVernay gives you a call and says, 'Hey, you want to be in a Jay Z video?' You're like 'Yeah.' But also why is it even a question? Don't I just seem like a natural fit for a Jay Z video?" she laughed. "I'm very cool and hip."

"You are indeed," Spencer said.
