Jessica Chastain only recently became a Hollywood favorite, and it looks like she will have a lot more time on her hands to make more films. According to an insider, Jessica and her boyfriend of four years, Ned Benson, have called it quits. "Jessica's career began to take off and she was more and more distracted. So they recently decided to break up."

Ned, a filmmaker, played the loyal and devoted boyfriend while Jessica was recently traveling to promote her film, The Tree of Life, with Brad Pitt and Sean Penn. Ned had told WWD at the the Seattle International Film Festival in June 2008 after Jessica won best actress for Jolene, "I'm the promoting boyfriend."
