The actress said she will “fight to the death for the right to suspend disbelief.”

Cate Blanchett came to the Rome Film Festival on Friday to participate in a “Close Encounter” discussion with the fest’s artistic director Antonio Monda.

Blanchett talked about her life’s work, joking that she had to act to find Brad Pitt sexy in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and admitting that she was so nervous to receive a phone call to work with Martin Scorsese in The Aviator, that she accepted the role without even understanding that she had committed to play Katharine Hepburn.

When looking at footage from Todd Haynes’ Carol, based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel about a forbidden love affair between two women, she said she had never been asked more questions about her sexuality than when she played a lesbian character. Many interviewers during the Carol junket seemed to imply or question whether having a lesbian experience was essential to understanding such a role.

For Blanchett, she believes this defies the whole point of acting. “It also speaks to something that I’m quite passionate about in storytelling generally, but in film specifically, is that film can be quite a literal medium,” she said.

“And I will fight to the death for the right to suspend disbelief and play roles beyond my experience. I think reality television and all that that entails had an extraordinary impact, a profound impact on the way we view the creation of character,” she continued.

“I think it provides a lot of opportunity, but the downside of it is that we now, particularly in America, I think, we expect and only expect people to make a profound connection to a character when it’s close to their experience,” she said.

The 2018 Close Encounters series includes the onstage conversation with one of the most intense and refined actresses of contemporary cinema, two-time Oscar® winner Cate Blanchett. Honored by the Academy for her roles in The Aviator by Martin Scorsese and Blue Jasmine by Woody Allen, the Australian actress boasts an exceptional roster of collaborations with directors such as Steven Spielberg, Peter Jackson, Wes Anderson, Ron Howard, David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh and Todd Haynes. After enrolling in the Department of Economics of the University of Melbourne, Cate decided to leave the university to study acting at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts in Sydney and, after graduating, became a member of the Sydney Theatre Company. In 1997, she made her cinematic debut beside Glenn Close in Paradise Road directed by Bruce Beresford. But it was the following year that she was catapulted to the pantheon of the stars, for her performance as the haughty and resolute Queen Elisabeth in Shekhar Kapur’s Elizabeth, the role for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination and went on to win the Golden Globe. From then on, her career soared inexorably on the wings of her performances in very different roles, all played with style and elegance.

Blessed with aristocratic allure and the magnetic appeal of a diva from days gone by, in 2016 the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees appointed her Goodwill Ambassador for her humanitarian commitment.

The encounter will be on October 19, 2018 at 17.30 pm. Tickets will be on sale from October 12th and you can go here to get. [Source]

Comedian Lucille Ball’s side-splitting facial expressions and pratfalls were so recognisable to audiences that scriptwriters for her three top-rating TV series (I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show and Here’s Lucy) took to using shorthand to describe them. There was the “light bulb” for when her zany character came up with another madcap scheme; “credentials”, which indicated a “how dare you” gape when someone had the indignity to question her ability to pull something off; and “puddling up” when everything fell apart. Between 1951 and 1974, Ball was TV’s queen of comedy, a lovable redhead who was compared to Red Skelton, Eddie Cantor and the Marx Brothers for her gift for sophisticated slapstick (not surprising, given she worked with these comic legends in her early films).

Ball later became the first woman to run a major TV production studio, Desilu, which launched Star Trek in the 1960s. But the show that made Ball one of the most famous faces on the planet, the iconic I Love Lucy, which ran from 1951 to 1957, happened in large part because the then 40-year-old simply wanted a project that would enable her to keep an eye on her Cuban-born husband, Desi Arnaz, who was seven years her junior.

Ball and Arnaz had married in 1940, she a B-grade film actor and he a band leader who was constantly touring – and unfaithful. The legendary and tempestuous 20-year marriage of Ball and Arnaz – they divorced in 1960 – is now the subject of a new biopic, tentatively titled Lucy & Desi: Before the Laughter. Penned by West Wing creator Aaron Sorkin, it will star Cate Blanchett as the comedian, with Ball’s real-life children Lucie Arnaz, 67, and Desi Arnaz jnr, 65, as producers. Amazon Studios has acquired the rights and it’s expected to begin filming next year.

Why the sudden interest in a comedian whom many under 30 would never have heard of? No doubt because of Baby Boomer and Generation X nostalgia – and the fact that, remarkably, Ball’s shows have been repeated on TV for nearly 70 years. Blanchett’s sons Dashiell, 16, Roman, 14, and Ignatius, 10, reportedly nudged her to take the role as they are fans of the early shows (she also has a three-year-old daughter, Edith). The best seal of approval was arguably from Ball’s own daughter, Lucie, who also wanted Blanchett to play the role. [Source]

When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other

‘Go on then: lock the doors and see what happens. Show me how much power you really have.’

This new play breaks through the surface of contemporary debate to explore the messy, often violent nature of desire and the fluid, complicated roles that men and women play.

Using Samuel Richardson’s novel, Pamela, as a provocation, six characters act out a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance.

The production reunites Martin Crimp (Attempts on her Life, In the Republic of Happiness) and director Katie Mitchell (Waves, Cleansed). Cate Blanchett makes her National Theatre debut alongside Stephen Dillane, who returns to the National Theatre for the first time since The Coast of Utopia in 2002.
