Shang-Chi changed this up by making Katy just as important as the protagonist, as she was never relegated to the sidelines. In fact, it was Katy who pushed Shang-Chi to reconcile with his sister and protect Ta Lo, while Katy herself was actively involved in the battle. Her importance was cemented in the ending when Katy and Shang-Chi were both summoned by Wong, which puts on equal footing with her superhero friend.

After fans went wild for the video on social media, Chastain responded with a tweet of her own and in an Instagram comment, making sure to promote their new show in the process. Read on to see what the actor had to say about the much-talked-about moment and to see the pair on the red carpet.
Scenes from a Marriage is a remake of the 1973 Swedish miniseries from writer and director Ingmar Bergman, which is about a couple whose marriage is falling apart. This project marks the second time Isaac and Chastain have played a married couple. They previously starred together in the 2014 film A Most Violent Year.
Walking the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, Chastain and Isaac took their job seriously and didn't hold back. In the viral video, they pose with Chastain's arm resting on Isaac's shoulder, then he smiles at her before leaning in and either smelling or kissing her arm. Chastain then grabs his face and laughs. Another clip shows Isaac looking adoringly at Chastain as she poses. They were also filmed walking giddily while holding hands.
In response, one Twitter user wrote, "the way we have latched onto that video of oscar isaac smouldering at jessica chastain…as a society we are starved for on screen sexual tension." Another wrote, "Everyone convinced Oscar Isaac/Jessica Chastain must have something going on just shows we need to bring back romcoms and chemistry test. Stars used to be compatible and put on shows while doing promo!"
Someone else added, referencing the top prize at the Venice Film Festival, "interesting choice to award the golden lion to that slow mo getty images clip of oscar isaac kissing jessica chastain's arm but i respect it." Another fan commented, "the way oscar isaac looks at jessica chastain i would simply faint."
After the video went viral, Chastain posted her own response. On Monday, Sept. 6, she tweeted a screenshot from the original Addams Family TV show of Gomez kissing wife Morticia's arm. Isaac voices the character Gomez in the animated Addams Family movies, which may be why he referenced this move on the carpet. Along with the screenshot, Chastain posted a devil emoji and "Sept 12th"—the release date of Scenes from a Marriage.
She also commented on their red carpet appearance on Instagram. Writer and actor Mindy Kaling commented on one of Chastain's posts from her time in Venice, "Why is Oscar Isaac the only person allowed to kiss your inner arm." Chastain wrote back, "don't hate lol."
While some fans may wish it were the case, Isaac and Chastain are not actually a couple—they're just colleagues and friends. Chastain has been married to Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, who works in fashion, since 2017. Isaac has also been married to his wife, director Elvira Lind, since 2017. And in case you're worried about what their spouses think about their red carpet antics, don't be. Lind was photographed laughing while watching the actors posing together, and Passi de Preposulo was also in Venice for the festival.

Chastain and Isaac were at the Venice Film Festival, promoting their new HBO miniseries Scenes from a Marriage. Reuniting after their critically-acclaimed collaboration in 2014’s A Most Violent Year, they’re playing (as you can probably infer from the title) another married couple. And while the series doesn’t look notably sexy, Chastain and Isaac definitely display a certain vibe. In this 52-second clip, we see Oscar Isaac give Jessica Chastain a smoldering look before kissing her arm, with the two actors embracing each other and laughing for the cameras.

The clip grabbed people’s attention both because film buffs love Chastain and Isaac, and because those 52 seconds displayed more charisma and sex appeal than we see in most mainstream Hollywood movies. As an on-screen couple, they emit an aura of old-school glamor and sensuality, with Chastain jokingly comparing Isaac’s arm-kiss to Morticia and Gomez Addams. When someone edited the clip to add “Yumeji’s Theme” from the iconically romantic film In The Mood For Love, it felt like a perfect fit.
In turn, this all tied into recent discussions about the sexless nature of contemporary American film. While some blockbusters still face criticism for sexualizing women in an exploitative manner (hello, Michael Bay), there’s also a growing sense that modern Hollywood is afraid of sex and romance.
The stars of Marvel movies—a dominant force in the industry—are ripped and gorgeous, but they rarely have compelling romantic arcs or sexual tension with their love interests. Meanwhile, the romance genre is a shadow of its former self. When romantic movies do get made, their stars rarely seem to have genuine chemistry, contrasting with the vibrant energy of romances from the 1930s, ’40s and ’50s. This phenomenon was pinpointed earlier this year in an article by RS Benedict, “Everyone is beautiful and no one is horny,” positing that the 21st century craze for superhero movies went hand-in-hand with the desexualization of mainstream cinema.
that Oscar Isaac clip would have brought 2012 Tumblr to the brink of apocalypse

That Chastain/Isaac clip illustrates the way Hollywood fails to utilize sexual charisma—particularly in the case of Oscar Isaac, whose capacity for red-hot smoldering is typically kept under wraps. People are so unused to seeing this kind of chemistry that Twitter lost its collective mind over a Getty Images montage of two movie stars hanging out on a red carpet. And that reaction included speculation that Chastain and Isaac were having an affair. Some people seemed shocked that Isaac’s wife was nearby at the same event, laughing and smiling while her husband embraced his co-star.

This reaction definitely folds back into the “people have forgotten what sexual chemistry looks like” thing, because Jessica Chastain and Oscar Isaac… are actors! They’re promoting a project together! Part of their job involves pretending to be married on camera, and the other part involves using their star power to advertise that project. This doesn’t mean they’re sleeping together, any more than Daniel Craig goes around shooting people as practice for James Bond.
Something similar happened a couple of years ago with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, who played up their romantic vibes while promoting A Star Is Born. The chemistry was real but it was also a central element of the film’s marketing campaign; a rarity in a Hollywood landscape where adult romances are few and far between. Their intimate Oscar night performance of the song “Shallow” had people speculating about an affair, but all that sizzling romantic tension evaporated once the film’s promotional tour was over. In subsequent interviews, Gaga said they were “fooling everyone” because “we wanted people to believe that we were in love.” Because, you know, they’re actors.

Though Chastain, 44, already hinted at the romantic exchange between her and her Scenes From a Marriage co-star, she went even further when pal Mindy Kaling called her out.
"Why is Oscar Isaac the only person allowed to kiss your inner arm," Kaling commented on a video of Chastain getting ready for her red carpet appearance.
Chastain replied to the comment, writing, "@mindykaling don't hate lol."
Of course, Kaling is referencing the imitate moment the two actors shared on the red carpet in which Isaac, 42, was filmed and photographed rubbing Chastain's arm while gazing at her before leaning in to kiss the inside of her arm.
Chastain initially responded to the buzz by promoting their upcoming HBO Max miniseries, Scenes From a Marriage. She posted a picture of Gomez Addams from The Addams Family films kissing his wife, Morticia's, arm. Isaac voiced Gomez in the animated version of The Addams Family.
"Sept 12th 😈," she wrote, referring to Scenes From a Marriage's release date.
Both Chastain and Isaac are happily married in real life and not to each other.
Chastain and Isaac play a married couple navigating the ups and downs of their relationship in HBO's new limited series. The five-episode limited series is based on Ingmar Bergman’s 1973 Swedish miniseries of the same name. Isaac plays Jonathan, a passive philosophy professor, while Chastain plays Mira, an ambitious tech executive.
