The news about Jessica Chastain's feud with Jennifer Lawrence is that there is no news, because there is no feud, and there never was. For real. Not kidding.

In an interview with Haute Living, Chastain explained that the whole feud thing was made up by the media "because they were trying to get headlines and get clicks." The rumors first began when both women were nominated by the Academy Awards for Best Actress in 2013, Chastain for Zero Dark Thirty and Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook (Lawrence won). But there was definitely never any bad blood between them, according to Chastain. As she told Haute Living, "I cheer for women to succeed because I know when an actress succeeds that means there's going to be that many more roles for women because an audience is going to demand it."

Oh, and for the record, Chastain is also a fan of Lawrence's op-ed about wage inequality between men and women.

"I loved her op-ed. I was really disappointed after she wrote it that she got criticism. Sometimes people have that attitude where, 'You're an actress making a lot of money, how dare you complain?' We've kind of been programmed to be grateful that we've gotten this job, so don't rock the boat. I don't think that's fair. Jennifer Lawrence coming out and saying that was really important."

So move along, everyone, nothing to see here except two mature adult women just minding their own business and acting like adults.

But if the media is going to make up celebrity feud rumors, who should they pit against each other?
