Jessica Chastain is one of the most acclaimed actresses in the world right now.

She has been nominated for two Oscars during her career and won a Golden Globe for her role in Zero Dark Thirty.

Chastain was also named as one of the most influential people in the world by Time Magazine in 2012.

The 40-year-old is a strong advocate for women's rights and doesn't shy away from making her voice heard on behalf of others.

She also appeared in Jay-Z's video for his recent single 'Family Feud.'

Basically, Jessica Chastain is awesome.

Her talents don't end there though.

Recently, the Californian-born star appeared on the Spanish television show El Hormiguero.

During the show, they ask their guests to take part in a no-blinking contest, which is really hard, no matter who you are.

However, as we've already established Jessica Chastain is not a regular person.

Not only did she break the record set by fellow actress Margaret Qualley, she obliterated it and didn't blink for a full two minutes.

Jessica later tweeted that the task was "crazy painful" - but the Internet was very impressed.

In short, there is nothing that Jessica Chastain can't do and if there is we don't want to know about it.

Just in case you are curious, this wasn't actually the world record for not blinking.

Unfortunately, Guinness does not keep a recognised world record for longest time without blinking.

However, according to Record Setter, Michael Thomas from Florida managed to keep his eyes open for an incredible one hour, 5.61 seconds.

That means that Jessica has a long way to go before claiming she's top of the world.

Still, we wouldn't bet against her.
