CATE BLANCHETT IS OUR WINTER 2018 COVER STAR!

Charming. Refined. A visionary artist with integrity and grace. This is Cate Blanchett.

Cate Blanchett is a surprise from the moment she shows up. Wearing jeans and a T-shirt and no makeup, she arrives alone at the seaside apartment by Manly Beach in Sydney, Australia. The only clue identifying her as the award-winning actress is that same husky voice from the silver screen: “Hi, I’m Cate. Sorry, I seem to have caught a cold on the plane.” Though she is known for her poised demeanour, the Australian actress and global ambassador for Giorgio Armani Beauty gives us a warm smile.

Even non-movie fans would surely be familiar with Blanchett, but this Hollywood A-lister rarely appears in entertainment headlines. A search engine can confirm that she recently settled in the English countryside, where she is raising four children with her writer- director husband, Andrew Upton.

BLANCHETT DOESN’T HAVE social-media accounts. Her viewpoint on this matter is clear: “There are two reasons: For me, it’s too time-consuming, and for the other, communications over the internet can become narrow and negative; they can incite jealousy or anger without the counterbalance of face-to-face accountability. I fear that much of our engagement with social media is ego-driven—and I like to separate the ego from the ideas.”

Her advice to young actors is to set aside their ego. “As an audience member, I’m never interested in the actors’ personal lives. I want to forget all that and immerse myself in their characters and the story they are telling. The tabloid gossip around actors just gets in the way of engaging with the work.” Continue lendo »

In a coup for FX, Cate Blanchett is set to star as conservative firebrand Phyllis Schlafly in the limited series “Mrs. America,” recounting the modern history of the women’s movement.

“Mad Men” and “Halt and Catch Fire” alum Dahvi Waller is spearheading the project for FX Productions. Waller and Blanchett will exec produce alongside Stacey Sher and Coco Francini. FX has ordered nine episodes with production set to begin next year.

“Cate Blanchett is one the great actors of our time — and we are truly honored to have her star in “Mrs. America,’ ” said FX CEO John Landgraf. “We have no doubt that Cate is the perfect actor to play the role of Phyllis Schlafly, who was one of the most polarizing and fascinatingly complex figures of the ‘70s for her opposition to and role in defeating the Equal Rights Amendment, which to this day has never been ratified. Dahvi Waller’s scripts are extraordinary, and I’m thrilled to re-unite with my former Jersey TV partner Stacey Sher, and commend her on assembling such a dynamic foursome of gifted, female, artist-producers to take on this timely story.“

FX said the series would explore the rise of feminism and the push for the Equal Rights Amendment through the eyes of both Schlafly, who led the backlash to the work of second-wave feminists including Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug, and Jill Ruckelshaus. The show promises to look at how the tension over the female empowerment movement helped changed the political and cultural landscape.

Schlafly waged a campaign against the passage of the ERA as well as against the legalization of abortion and the burgeoning gay rights movement. She was a self-described housewife activist from Illinois who wound up earning a law degree and remained active as a conservative commentator for decades. She died in 2016 at the age of 92.

The high-wattage “Mrs. America” is a notable get for FX at a time when the TV business is riveted to the growth and influence of Netflix as it seeks out A-listers for exclusive programming deals. “Mrs. America” marks Blanchett’s first U.S. TV series role.

The greenlight for “Mrs. America” also comes at a time when women’s empowerment and gender parity concerns have been making headlines for more than a year. The outpouring of testimonials about sexual harassment and assault in the workplace has heightened the national focus on issues of equality and diversity in the workplace, particularly in the entertainment industry.

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. Continue lendo »
