Before she was an A-lister, Jessica Chastain was starring in Wrigley's gum commercials alongside late-night host Jimmy Kimmel.

On Tuesday's Jimmy Kimmel Live, the 2015 Golden Globes nominee spoofed the infamous '80s ads by making a chewing gum training video.  Sporting '80s aerobic gear, Chastain demonstrated how NOT to "achieve the perfect load." Meanwhile, Kimmel donned a handlebar mustache and mullet for the humorous commercial parody.

In addition to her Wrigley's ad, the 37-year-old also shared that she was so into acting growing up that she tried cleaning houses to fund her makeshift theater company. She even made a jingle to the tune of the Ghostbusters theme song. "We would go inside people's home. They'd be in their bathrobes and we'd be cleaning their kitchens," Chastain recalled to Kimmel. "We weren't very good so we got like a couple dollars."

While at Sunday's Golden Globes, Chastain's fellow nominee Amy Adams shared with ET that one of her jobs before acting was waitressing at Hooters -- and surprisingly she loved it! Check out our chat with Adams, below.
