Jessica Chastain has said that there's no truth to rumours that she 'hates' fellow Oscar-nominated actress Jennifer Lawrence.

The star of 'Zero Dark Thirty', who is up for Best Actress at the Oscars alongside 'Silver Linings Playbook' star Lawrence, hit back at the talk on her Facebook page.

“I find it very sad that media makes up bogus stories about women fighting in this industry,” she wrote. “Why do we support the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along?

“I think all of the actresses recognized this year have given incredible performances. But more important, they've all shown themselves to be filled with generosity and kindness.

“I've done two photo shoots with Jennifer Lawrence over the years and have found her to be utterly charming and a great talent. I've told her how beautiful her film work is. Please don't allow the media to perpetuate the myth that women aren’t supportive of each other.”

The remarks came after US gossip site Showbiz Spy reported that Chastain was angry with Lawrence's win at the SAG Awards, and a recent tongue-in-cheek skit by Lawrence on 'Saturday Night Live'.

In the skit, Lawrence referred to all her other rivals for Best Actress, saying: “Jessica Chastain – more like Jessica Chast-ain’t winning no Oscar on my watch. In 'Zero Dark Thirty' you caught Bin Laden. So what? In 'Winter’s Bone' I caught a squirrel – and then I ate it. Boom. Deal with that.”
