Cate Blanchett Reveals What Kind of Characters She Won’t Portrayjessie tan
Cate Blanchett looks stunning on the cover of the December issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK, available October 30th.
Here’s what the 50-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On the type of characters she chooses to portray: “I’m never interested in portraying myself. For me, selfishly, it’s always about trying to understand someone else’s perspective. Often the further from my own experience and my set of values, the more fascinating it is. And the only way we can move forward is to learn from history.”
On feminism and the women’s-rights movement: “We’re still talking about same-sex restrooms, we’re still talking about women in the military, we’re still talking about reproductive freedom. And how many years ago was that? It really has been Groundhog Day.”
On what she has learnt in her new role in Mrs America: “The difficulties faced by women on both sides of the political spectrum were identical. We’re always waving our flags of difference, but in the end, the result is to distance women from each other.”
