Just thought I should share an article with some quotes from Cate and some more about the Woody Allen project.
The 43-year-old actress – who is renowned for her pale skin and blonde hair – has had to rid herself of her locks before and is considering doing so again because she finds it “liberating”.
“Shaving off my hair is so liberating. I had to do it once for a film role, but I’ve done it periodically too,” she said.
“At school it was probably to rebel, but I cut my hair short a few years ago and I’m thinking about doing it again.”
The Australian beauty – who has children Dashiell, 10, Roman, eight, and four-year-old Ignatius with husband Andrew Upton – tries to avoid the gym as much as she can as she likes to get her workouts done while doing her job.
“I try to be healthy but I find exercise deathly dull. It tends to be easier to get outside in Australia, but the rain and floods have been atrocious in the past few years which limits things,” she said.
“Luckily, work keeps me fit and I’ve just been on stage with a show that’s very physical, which staves off the gym for a bit longer.”
Blanchett has been cast in Woody Allen’s next movie project which he will shoot in San Francisco and his native New York.
The cast includes Blanchett, Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, Peter Sarsgaard and comedian Andrew Dice Clay.
The as yet untitled project is 76-year-old Allen’s 40th film and marks his return to production in the US after making his last three films in London, Paris and Rome. He won the Best Original Screenplay Oscar this year for Midnight in Paris.
In his latest film To Rome with Love Allen appears alongside Penelope Cruz and Jesse Eisenberg.
So it seems like its officially announced that Cate will star in a Woody Allen film!
Veteran film director Woody Allen on Monday announced an all-star cast for his next yet-to-be-titled project, led by Oscar-winner Cate Blanchett, comedian Louis C.K. and actor Alec Baldwin.
Allen said the movie will be filmed this summer in New York and San Francisco – the first time the Oscar-winning director will use San Francisco as his backdrop since his directorial debut in 1969 with “Take The Money And Run.”
The new project also sees Allen, 76, return to American soil after filming his last three projects in London, Paris and Rome, picking up a screenplay Oscar for “Midnight In Paris.”
Although no plot details have emerged yet on the newest film, Allen’s cast represents a mixture of comedic and dramatic talent, such as “Happy-Go-Lucky” British actress Sally Hawkins, “Lost” actor Michael Emerson and “Green Lantern” star Peter Sarsgaard.
Allen has more than 40 films under his director’s belt over a career spanning six decades. He appears alongside Penelope Cruz and Jesse Eisenberg in his latest film, “To Rome With Love,” in U.S. theaters on June 22.
