Rather than setting her sights on Hollywood, Cate Blanchett has spent her last few years down under, serving as the artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company alongside her husband Andrew Young. However, the pair are Big Apple bound. They are soon heading stateside to stage their production of “Uncle Vanya” for the Lincoln Center Festival in July. The play will run for 10 nights, and Blanchett herself will star. [Editor's note: Eeeeeee!]
Blanchett appears on the cover of the summer issue of Gotham magazine, discussing the production.
Woo hoo! Cate Blanchett has signed off for a new movie. Her new project, which will co-star Mia Wasikowska, is called “Carol,” and it’s a big-screen adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s novella “The Prince of Salt.” So what is this movie about? Why, it’s a lesbian love story set in the 1950s, of course.
“The Prince of Salt” tells the tale of Therese (presumably Wasikowska), a young woman in New York working in a department store. She finds herself bizarrely drawn to Carol (presumably Blanchett), a 30-something customer in an unhappy marriage.
The Kates certainly seemed to have a theme at tonight’s Met Costume Institute Ball in New York: “Black Swan.” While Kate Upton sported an uber-tight, slicked-back ballerina bun, Cate Blanchett broke her golden rule and opted for a dark feathered dress. Meanwhile, Kate Bosworth? She did both of the above. Did they consult, or was this just an example of Kate mind-meld?
Cate Blanchett has revealed in a new interview that she is against two things when it comes to beauty—using one’s own urine as a cleanser and getting Botox or plastic surgery.
“There’s been a decade or so of people doing intervention with their face and their body. Now that we’re emerging from that people are seeing that long term it’s not so great,” Blanchett tells Fashionista.com. “I’m not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn’t do, but I know what works for me. I’d just be too frightened about what it means long term. If you have all that stuff done, in the end … you just see the work. It doesn’t fill me with admiration, it fills me with pity.”
Interestingly, she is far from the only Kate to declare themselves against cosmetic procedures recently.
“We live in a strange time when getting plastic surgery is as common as dyeing your hair,” said Walsh. “But in my profession, I need a malleable face. Everyone has her line in the sand. I draw mine at facials and laser treatments. If others want to go a step further, it’s their call.”
However, Walsh got far more outspoken while tweeting during the Oscars last month. “Dear Hollywood actresses, stop fucking up your faces, it’s looking like the bar scene in Star Wars,” she wrote.
The lovely Cate Blanchett stepped out on Tuesday night to present at the 2012 Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) Awards in Sydney. She combed her hair into a messy-to-perfection updo and threw on a golden Alexander McQueen dress. While the frock would have made most actresses look like a piece of tinsel crumpled up in the corner a week after the Christmas tree has been taken down, Blanchett looks thoroughly amazing in it. Ditto for a Louis Vuitton dress that Blanchett wore to a cocktail party in Rome over the weekend. On most people—totally nuts. On Blanchett—thoroughly gorgeous.
This is because the dresses follow Cate’s favorite fashion rule: when in doubt, wear something gold. Don’t believe me? After the jump, many many examples of Blanchett dressing like she’s an Oscar. Or maybe more accurately, a Golden Globe.
“Oh, it’s awful,” Johansson complains to USA Today. “It’s a laziness. People can’t actually say the whole name? It’s just bizarre … Cate Blanchett is not, like, ‘CaBla?’ Why do I have to get stuck?”
Why? Because CaBla just doesn’t roll of the tongue. In fact, when said out loud, it just sort of sounds like you are saying the word ‘cable’ with a bizarre accent.
