The George and Tammy star slipped moments after she received her award at the SAG Awards.
It wasn’t captured on the live telecast although several cameras were on Jessica when she fell.
She appeared to get caught up on the skirt of her oversized taffeta Zuhair Murad dress.
The moment was posted online and fans reshared it thousands of times.
Several Twitter users added their own reactions to the viral moment.
One wrote: “Jessica Chastain said ‘I know it’s been 10 years since Jennifer Lawrence fell at an award show. Let me fix this.’”
Another tweeted: “JESSICA CHASTAIN DID THE JLAW FALL.”
Jennifer Lawrence slipped and fell during the 2013 Oscars, leading to another viral moment.
Jessica got a helping hand from Giancarlo Esposito after she tripped.
Moments prior to the viral fall, Jessica accepted the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series for her role in George and Tammy.
She beat out Niecy Nash, Amanda Seyfried, Julia Garner, and Emily Blunt.
During her speech, Jessica said: “To every actor watching, I look forward to working with you. I will see you on set!”
She dedicated her award to costar Michael Shannon and even shared a little advice she got from the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.
According to the actress, he visited one of her classes at the Juilliard School.
Jessica recalled on stage: “He told us all of his frustrating stories about auditions, and he encouraged us to keep going, even when we felt like no one was watching us.
“At the end of the talk, he said, ‘I look forward to working with each of you.’ It really shocked me because it was like he brought it into being. And a few years later, it came true, and I had the opportunity to do a play with him.”
She went on: “I’m telling this story now because it reminds me of how powerful our mind is and that we are what our thoughts create.
“So, I just want to tell everyone who might be struggling at home, to all the actors that I get to meet: Keep going. You’re one job away. I look forward to working with you. I’ll see you on set.”
