WATCH: Jessica Chastain feeds Jimmy Kimmel durian
MANILA, Philippines – Jessica Chastain was fresh off of her press tour for The Huntsman: Winter's War when she guested on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and she brought Jimmy a gift – a durian fruit. (WATCH: Chris Hemsworth, Jessica Chastain talk betrayal and second chances)
The actress fell in love with durian, a fruit famous for its unsavory smell, when she tried it in Singapore and Thailand.
"They call it the blue cheese of fruit," she told Jimmy. "I love it though! I kind of tastes like onions, and garlic, and avocado, and pineapple – kind of, like, in a custard," Jessica described, laughing, before Jimmy cut the durian open on top of an Of Monsters and Men album.
When the fruit finally cracked open, Jimmy reacted strongly to getting a whiff of the infamous durian smell. Jessica laughed and admitted that it "kind of smells like a garbage can."
Still, both Jimmy and Jessica had a piece. It seemed Jimmy wasn't as big a fan of durian as Jessica, as he asked Guillermo, "Take these and throw them in the sea, or something like that."
