Years ago, Cate Blanchett said, someone told her, ″You have an actor’s face.″

″I think it was a compliment,″ the Australian actress, now 49, said with a laugh. “It’s that thing of not having any particular look, which is particularly helpful in my line of work. I’m not massively plain or massively beautiful. I have a foot in both camps.″

How people look on the inside, the two-time Oscar winner said, matters most to her when choosing roles.

″What’s interesting to me, when I approach a new character, is the flaws, the fears and that very human sense of incompleteness,″ she said. ″That’s the most beautiful thing of all for an actor.

″I even find myself in other people’s lives.″

That might include her character in Eli Roth’s ″The House With the Clock in Its Walls,″ which opened Friday in theaters.

Based on the novel by John Bellairs and produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, the film centers on Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro), a young orphan who — along with his warlock Uncle Jonathan (Jack Black) and Jonathan’s next-door neighbor, the good witch Mrs. Zimmerman (Blanchett) — must find a clock that has the power to turn time backward.

″The clock wants to turn time back to before humans existed, and we have to stop it,″ Blanchett said during an interview in New York. ″It has that Spielberg magic that all of us try to catch.″

With horror master Roth shepherding the film, moviegoers can count on some chills.

For Blanchett, the role was atypical.

A psychic predicted that Cate Blanchett would play murdered Sunday Independent reporter Veronica Guerin in a film, she tells Aine O’Connor

The word from the interviewers who go before me is that Cate Blanchett and Jack Black are in great form.

When I get to them, Cate is eating chocolate and needs to stand up for a while, Jack wants to know how to spell my name, has Cate ever been to Dublin, and, if she had Guinness there, because it tastes better. He wants to know if I have ever heard of Marlay Park because he played there. “I did not have a ‘high five’ with Bono but I did stay in his hotel, by the river there, what’s that street where all the music is? Bible?” Temple Bar? “Temple, not Bible, of course!”

Cate has not only been to Dublin, but spent time filming there, she played our late colleague Veronica Guerin in Joel Schumacher’s moving film. “I had this very strange moment,” she says, describing how research for a role as a psychic two years before she ever heard of Veronica, led her to visit a psychic to learn how to use the cards.

“The psychic told me, ‘You’re going to play a writer, short hair, she dies before her time, she’s got some foreign sounding name, Guavin, something like that and you’re going to have two bodyguards’.”

She says she forgot about it until over two years later and the day they were filming Veronica’s murder. “The Gilligan case had been reopened and they were worried about security on set and I turned around covered in blood, with my short hair and there were two bodyguards and I thought ‘Oh my God, this feels really familiar. Oh my God, this is what the psychic said…’ it was really creepy.” We all agree, and Cate continues, “Speaking of creepy….”

“Nice segue!” Jack nods in approval. “She’s always getting us back on track, this one.”

A funny thing happened at the premiere of “The House With a Clock in Its Walls” at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday: Several minutes into the movie, the screen abruptly froze on an image of Colleen Camp, who plays Jack Black’s nosy neighbor, Mrs. Hanchett, and her little dog, too.

Eli Roth jumped out of his seat and went into director mode to downplay what turned out to be an issue with the back-up projector, according to a Universal rep. “During a really, really scary scene, if we all hear Jack Black burping, it’s probably not going to work as well,” Roth explained to the packed house. “So if you can all bear with me, I think that we need [child star] Owen Vaccaro to stand up and lead us in a magical spell for us to restart the movie.”

Some of the younger audience members protested, despite the promise of an impromptu magic show. “We’ve only seen three minutes,” Roth said. “I know it seems like a long time, but trust me, it’s just three minutes. Owen!” he called out to his petite lead actor. “He didn’t know that he would have to do this, but I screwed it up,” Roth added. “Owen … is going to do a magical spell for all of us to restart the movie so that the projection goes perfectly. So, Owen, if you can lead everyone in group participation. … Just go!”

Vaccaro rose in front of the impatient crowd. “From Saturn to the sun … turn the movie back on!” he shouted while waving outstretched arms. Instantly, the opening credits rolled once again and Roth deadpanned: “Take two!”

Earlier, on the red carpet, shortly before Black crooned a classic by the Turtles (“We’re happy together/ So happy together,” Black sang during a group cast photo), Roth explained his inspiration for the abrupt departure into PG-rated material.

“Such are the two ways of the Photograph. The choice is mine: to subject its spectacle to the civilized code of perfect illusions, or to confront in it the wakening of intractable reality.” —Roland Barthes

Every photograph presents us with this fork in the road, but if we keep going down the same old path, we only ever get the same old answer. This issue is the other path: all female collaborators, female photographers, female visions, creative acts, aspirations, and endeavors. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

I’m wary of mission statements, expressions of vision. I prefer opening gambits, perhaps. Starting points. Launching pads. Language is all-important, and the way one begins a conversation, whether it be with a director, the W team, or, indeed, the W readers, will influence the way the project and its outcomes unfold. I’d like to think this issue is one such opening gambit. A provocation to look at life through a different lens. We hope it’s a fresh, exciting, and inclusive one.

So. How did this begin? With an offer for me to steer an issue of W. Fabulous. Okay. My involvement? Absolute. A genuine conversation: deep time collaboration. Focus? Women. Female paths, celebratory and uncompromising.

Insanely busy as all the photographers were, they ­perforated their schedules to be part of what felt like an exploration of possibilities: a mash-up, a riotous juxtaposition of wildly different creative perspectives. And whoa!…did we laugh. Running around New York City in the middle of the night with Cass Bird; frolicking through the daisies in the English countryside with Sharna Osborne; lip-synching with Shirin Neshat; typing—bunny style—with Sam Taylor-Johnson; et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. And then, being in conversation with the incomparable Miuccia Prada and brainstorming with the indefatigable, fearless, adventurous, and profoundly generous W team.

I hope the energy and va-va-voom that has gone into this issue leaps off the pages and into your hearts and minds. It certainly got my creative juices flowing… [Source]

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees Filippo Grandi are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador and actor, Cate Blanchett, will brief the United Nations Security Council on Rohingya issues on August 28, reported UNB.

Her goal is to draw attention to the plight and resilience of Rohingyas she met in Bangladesh on a recent visit, the UK office at the UN and the UN Refugee Agency tweeted on Thursday.

The UN Security Council will hold an open briefing on the situation in Myanmar under the UK presidency on August 28, said a senior official at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

He said UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres and the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, are also scheduled to brief the UN Security Council.

During her Bangladesh visit, Oscar-winning actor Blanchett urged Myanmar to create decent conditions in the Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas, saying the solution to the Rohingya crisis lies with Myanmar.

“Ultimately, I think, the key here is to address their statelessness,” she told UNB, mentioning that much more needed to be done to make sure there are decent conditions for the refugees to return safely when they want to.

Blanchett, who was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in May 2016, said the conditions right now in Rakhine are clearly not conducive to the safe and voluntary return, or the dignified return, of the refugees who have fled to Bangladesh.

The Myanmar authorities have shown little effort to make any tangible progress to improve conditions in Rakhine state for the safe return of Rohingyas in almost one year into the crisis, though the international community, including the UN, remains actively grappling with the issue, officials said.

There will be further high-level meetings and events during the General Debate and high-level segment of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly in September 2018. [Source]

Two-time Oscar winner Cate Blanchett will join the 13th Rome Film Fest to participate in a Close Encounter meeting with the audience and discuss her work as an artist and humanitarian.

Blanchett, a seven-time Academy Award nominee, won for her roles in The Aviator (2004) and Blue Jasmine (2013). She has been a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees since 2016.

“It is an extraordinary honor to host a wonderful actress such as Cate Blanchett at the Rome Film Fest,” said artistic director Antonio Mondo. “The versatility, the passion and the intelligence of her performances have made her one of the greatest protagonists in the history of cinema.”

Actor is cast opposite Stephen Dillane in production to be directed by Katie Mitchell

Cate Blanchett is to return to the UK stage for the first time in seven years when she makes her debut at the National Theatre in a new play by Martin Crimp.

It was announced on Wednesday that the Australian actor, who lives with her family in East Sussex, has been cast with Stephen Dillane in a production to be directed by Katie Mitchell.

Blanchett is an experienced stage actor and with her husband, Andrew Upton, was in charge of the Sydney Theatre Company from 2008-2013.

But the actor has been best known in recent years for her movie roles, including Blue Jasmine, Carol, the Hobbit films and Ocean’s 8. Her last UK stage appearance was at the Barbican in London in 2012 in Botho Strauss’s Big and Small.

Crimp’s play is called When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other – Twelve Variations on Samuel Richardson’s Pamela. Richardson’s Pamela, a kind of 18th-century Fifty Shades of Grey, is an epistolary novel about a young maid terrorised and imprisoned by a libertine nobleman. It caused a sensation after it was published in 1740 with its theme of love and marriage across the social divide.

The National Theatre said Crimp was using Pamela as a provocation with five characters acting out “a dangerous game of sexual domination and resistance”.

It said the play would break 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”.

The actress has become the brand’s first global beauty ambassador.

Cate Blanchett’s role at Giorgio Armani Beauty has been expanded, and she’s been named the brand’s first global beauty ambassador. The Academy Award-winning actress, who has been the face of the brand’s Sì fragrance franchise since 2013, is now representing all of the label’s beauty categories — including also makeup and skin care.

Giorgio Armani described Blanchett as the brand’s quintessential woman. “Luminous and sophisticated, her natural elegance and distinguished beauty are striking,” said the designer in a statement. “I am pleased to deepen our longstanding relationship.”

The actress has many movies set for 2018, including “Ocean’s 8,” “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” “The House With a Clock in Its Walls” and “Mowgli.” She served as the president of the jury at the Cannes Film Festival this year. [Source]

Cate Blanchett hopes her forthcoming all-female heist movie Ocean’s 8 will open the floodgates for more films with women taking all the starring roles.

The Oscar-winning actress will appear alongside Sandra Bullock, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter in the spin-off of the Ocean’s Eleven film series, due in cinemas in June.

She said: “Making Ocean’s 8 was too much fun! I hope and trust it will be as much fun to watch as it was to make.

“It’s funny because you don’t worry about what you’re missing until you experience it. Something that all of us were saying is that an all-female starring cast is so rare.

“You get maybe one, two or three of you — but to get eight of you that have all got really interesting roles that are all playing off one another is very rare.

“It’s happened to me in the theatre a little bit but it’s never happened to me before in film. So it’s hopefully to be oft repeated.”

Blanchett, 48, was speaking exclusively to the Standard as she attended the launch of the new Giorgio Armani and Armani/Casa boutique in Sloane Street.

Cate Blanchett, Joel Edgerton and Chris Hemsworth are among more than 200 Australian actors, directors, screenwriters, producers and other film and TV talent who have signed an open letter to the Oz government on behalf of the #MakeItAustralian campaign. In the face of “a deluge of overseas content,” the movement calls on federal parliamentarians to protect the local biz by committing to a diversity of quality Australian content for Australian and international audiences.

The campaign is asking elected officials to evolve rules so that new players like Netflix and YouTube have obligations to create original local programs. This comes as, the group says, major supporters of Australian stories such as Screen Australia and the ABC have seen funding cut over the years.

“Our ability to keep telling Australian stories on screen is at risk, our voices in danger of being drowned out by a deluge of overseas content,” the group writes. “And if our nation’s stories aren’t told, they die. And when they die, future generations won’t know who we are and what makes us us.”

The group also points to tax incentives that encourage production in Australia, saying they need to be competitive. This has long been a source of contention. The so-called production offset has been stuck at 16.5% and the industry has lobbied the government ahead of this year’s budget (due to be announced in May) to raise it to 30% to attract overseas filmmakers. The offset has occasionally been increased on a one-off basis for a major U.S. production. Most recently, Queensland agreed to top it up for Paramount’s live-action Dora The Explorer movie.

Big films to shoot Down Under in recent years include Alien: Covenant, Kong: Skull Island, Thor: Ragnarok, and Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

After recent visit to Bangladesh, Blanchett says more international support for displaced and host communities is urgently needed ahead of monsoon rains.

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett today warned of a “race against time” to protect Rohingya refugees from the worst impacts of the upcoming monsoon season in Bangladesh.

Blanchett was visiting south-eastern Bangladesh where over 671,000 children, women and men from Myanmar have sought safety since last August.

With wet season rains due next month, more than 150,000 refugees are at risk of landslides and floods, in what could become a disaster on top of the current emergency.

“The Rohingya refugees have already experienced targeted violence, human rights abuses and horrific journeys. They have shown unimaginable resilience and courage,” Blanchett said, speaking at the end of her visit to Kutupalong, Nyapara and Chakmarkul settlements this week.

“But now, as the monsoon season approaches, the Government of Bangladesh, supported by UNHCR and its partners, are in a race against time to ensure the refugees are as safe as they can be to deal with potential floods and landslides.”

In Chakmarkul settlement Blanchett met with 28-year-old Jhura who fled Myanmar with her two children when her village was attacked six months ago. She now lives in a bamboo shelter built on the side of a steep hill.

“The monsoon is coming and I’m scared that the wind will blow away the roof. There are shelters above mine that would fall on us if there is a landslide. The ground will be slippery and I worry that it will be difficult to get about,” says Jhura, who became separated from her husband, whom she fears may have been killed.
