New interview

After playing both real and mythical queens, a golden age screen idol and Bob Dylan, Cate Blanchett is taking on another iconic, complex character – Cinderella’s evil stepmother.

In Disney’s live-action “Cinderella,” out in U.S. theaters on March 13, Oscar-winning Blanchett plays the impeccably groomed and conniving Lady Tremaine, the villain obstructing Cinderella (Lily James) on her journey to becoming a princess.

Blanchett, 45, spoke with Reuters about how “Cinderella” brings a classic story into the modern age and weighed in on women in Hollywood.

Q: How do you put your stamp on a character like the evil stepmother that has become embedded in pop culture?

A: It’s very easy to play someone who’s just bad, but then hopefully understanding what makes someone tick. I think an exploration of jealousy amongst women is an interesting thing to explore on screen.

Q: How does this re-telling contemporize the story?

A: In the 1950s classic of the story, Cinderella was a bit of a doormat – she was incredibly beautiful, she moved gracefully. You also didn’t really understand the prince apart from the fact that he was gorgeous and he rescued her.

(Director Kenneth Branagh) kept talking about kindness as a super power, which I think has taken the story into a contemporary arena. In this cutthroat world where economics is everything, if you stop and pause, have empathy and kindness towards someone, then people can walk all over you. The fact that her goodness and kindness triumphs, that it really truly is a super power, is a wonderful message in the contemporary world.

Q: Hollywood again came under fire recently for its lack of leading roles for women. How do you think traditional roles for women are changing in Hollywood?

A: The fact that we’re still talking about it means that we probably haven’t moved as far. But people always talk about Hollywood.

Let’s start with equal pay for equal work, and when we can get to that space across all industries, then we might be able to say things have shifted. And then maybe you could look at Hollywood for the nuances of how things are being represented. I think women still have to talk about it … there’s still not gender equality in any industry.

Make-up artist Jeanine Lobell prepares Cate Blanchett for the Oscars.


Cate Blanchett enjoyed bestowing Eddie Redmayne with his Best Actor Oscar — though she hasn’t forgotten the names he called her when they first worked together.

‘I think he used the “whore” word,’ Blanchett told me, her eyes twinkling with mischief and merriment at the Oscar Governors Ball.

‘I’ve never forgiven him!’ she joked about their on-screen encounter in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, when she was the Virgin Queen and he Anthony Babington.

Blanchett has a few movies coming out this year, including the Disney extravaganza Cinderella; Carol, an exploration of sexual identity; and Truth, in which she portrays a former producer on the American news show 60 Minutes, with Robert Redford appearing as CBS anchorman Dan Rather.

But Blanchett told me she’s taking a break from the big screen to star in her husband Andrew Upton’s adaptation of Chekhov’s unfinished play, known variously as Platonov, Wild Honey or — in the case of this production, running at the Sydney Theatre Company in August for seven weeks — The Present.

The double Oscar winner said she hopes she and leading man Richard Roxburgh will tour, possibly to the U.S. and London, though nothing has been sorted yet.

The Present will be on stage at the Roslyn Packer Theatre Walsh Bay from August to September 2015:
