Just in case we needed a reminder that Jessica Chastain rules IRL as much as she does on the red carpet, this past weekend, she took a page from Amal Clooney’s book and used her fame for a good cause. The actress mobilized her fan base to help locate her grandmother’s stolen dog Livvy, who had gone missing from a Vallejo, California McDonald’s a few days prior. Jessica pleaded via Instagram, “For those of you who love animals, you must understand how devastated my grandma is. Please help.” Luckily, this story has a happy ending — and Jessica says it’s all thanks to her fans.
“Livvy is FOUND!!!!! My grandma picked her up a couple hours ago,” reads the caption on the adorable-beyond-words photo. “Thank you to each and every one of you that spread the word and put attention on this. I truly believe you all are the the guardian angels that reunited these two beauties. Much love to you xxjess #love #gratitude”
Jessica herself has a deep love for her pets, often posting pictures of herself and her canine and feline companions. Recently, we’ve even gotten glimpses of some wilder varieties of animals from the set of her upcoming movie The Zookeeper’s Wife. Not to mention, her Instagram bio reads: “Friend of animals everywhere!” Sounds about right.
Aww, we’re glad Livvy has been found.
