- Premiere.Cate Blanchett gives a style class: this is how the new jacket suit is worn
Cate Blanchett is one of the most recognized active actresses today. The eternal Galadriel of 'The Lord of the Rings' by Peter Jackson, however, flirts with his retirement, returning to raise his possible retirement at age 50: "It is time to stop . "
In a statement to Vulture, Blanchett did not bite his tongue, stating that it is "time to stop, totally . " "I am sure that the public from all over the world, when they watch this movie, will think: 'Yes, without a doubt, it has to stop.' I apologize in advance," explained the Oscar winner for 'Blue Jasmine.'
The interpreter refers to her role in 'Where'd You Go, Bernadette' , the new Richard Linklater film that premieres on August 16 in the United States, in which she plays Bernadette Fox . The film adapts the homonymous novel by Maria Semple, who participates as an executive producer.
Blanchett's character is a Seattle architect who has a husband who loves her and a brilliant daughter, so her sudden disappearance causes the obvious question that gives title to the film: Where are you, Bernadette?
Impeccable trajectory ... not without crisis
The protagonist goes through an existential and artistic crisis, as indicated by the aforementioned medium, similar to what the talented actress might be facing. Asked if she feels that way every time she is about to release a movie, Blanchett says it is something that "always happens".
And why do you keep going? "Because extremely interesting people, like Richard Linklater or Maria Semple, tell me 'Do you want to work with me?', And I answer 'Of course I want to!'" The actress has participated, among others, in projects by Martin Scorsese ('The Aviator'), Todd Haynes ('Carol') or Terrence Malick ('Knights of Cups').
The multi-faceted and multi-award-winning actress has also worked on projects far removed from the commercial. This is the case of 'Manifesto' , a film by video artist Julian Rossfeldt in which he played, nothing more and nothing less, than thirteen different characters.
However, it is not the first time that the actress says she is thinking about retiring. In an interview with Julia Roberts for Interview Magazine, Blanchett reflected on his possible retirement: "Maybe it's time to stop."
"Stop saying that," Roberts snapped, to which the interpreter replied: "I think, 'Why don't I devote myself to feeding the chickens and reading Proust?' All those books watch me from my bookshelf, bought and still unread. Why do I keep bothering to make movies? "
Blanchett continued to refer to how her work as an actress has changed: "As you get older, acting becomes increasingly humiliating. When I was younger, I wondered why the older actors I admired talked about retiring non-stop."
"Now I realize that what they wanted was to maintain a connection with the last bits of their sanity," said the actress, who concluded with a reflection: "As I get older, I wonder if I'm still willing to submit to the shamanic end of this profession , going crazy once and for all. "
