Jessica Chastain celebrated International Women's Day by donating $2,000 to a woman who was apparently in need, reports ABC News. The Molly's Game actor had engaged in an Instagram exchange with Karin Schulz, who said she was short of money for a fertility treatment. The two didn't agree on everything—Shulz is pro-life and Chastain pro-choice—but Chastain said she was moved by her follower's struggle to fund fertility treatments that insurance didn't cover, Bustle reports. "I read about your journey to become a mother and it broke my heart," Chastain wrote on Instagram. Schulz, one of Chastain's 1.6 million Instagram followers, wrote back effusively: "You are my sister, and together wonderful change and more awesome things will happen in this beautiful world we live in."
