Thor Ragnarok – Cate Blanchett : “Parfois j’avais l’impression d’être dans un jeu vidéo”


Natalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Hugo Weaving, Glenn Close, Jeff Bridges, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Robert Redford… On s’arrête là ? Avec Thor : Ragnarok, Cate Blanchett rejoint la longue liste des grands acteurs et actrices qui peuplent les films Marvel Studios. L’année dernière, en compagnie de quelques autres confrères, Première a pu rencontrer sur le tournage celle qui incarne, Hela, la déesse de la mort.

Qu’est-ce qu’une actrice oscarisée comme vous venait chercher sur un film Marvel Studios ?
Comme j’ai beaucoup travaillé au théâtre, j’ai un certain sens de l’événementiel. Et tous ces films sont des événements, je trouve ça très excitant. Ce qui plaît spécifiquement chez Marvel, c’est cette ironie. Ils se prennent au sérieux et en même temps il y a beaucoup d’autodérision. Une énergie un peu irrévérencieuse. C’est subversif, selon moi. Enfin… Potentiellement.

Mais qu’est-ce qui vous attirait au-delà de ça ? L’action ?
Putain, j’ai adoré ça. J’ai vraiment adoré ça. C’était fantastique, parce que parfois j’étais si déconnectée de ce que je faisais que j’avais l’impression d’être dans un jeu vidéo. J’ai pris l’action comme une façon d’en dire plus sur le personnage, de dépasser le simple mouvement. Quand vous embrassez quelqu’un à l’écran, il y a un million de façons de le faire. Et j’ai découvert qu’il y a un million de façons de mettre un coup de poing à quelqu’un (rire).

Et donc vous voilà, la première méchante de l’univers Marvel.
Effectivement, ça n’était jamais arrivé. Enfin une méchante ! J’étais très excitée quand Kevin Feige (NDLR : le patron de Marvel Studios) m’a pitché le film, j’ai tout de suite senti qu’il y avait le potentiel pour faire quelque chose de nouveau. Hela n’est pas connue du grand public et c’était l’opportunité de l’inventer au cinéma. C’est d’autant plus génial que Taika Waititi est le réalisateur. Un vrai marrant, mais également un type très irrévérencieux. Dans un film comme ça, il y a évidemment un scénario qui mène la danse, mais aussi beaucoup de temps pour les personnages entre chaque “grand” moment. Quand on travaille avec Taika et qu’on incarne une méchante, on peut jouer sur plein de nuances. Il régnait sur le tournage une ambiance très espiègle. Taika m’a impressionnée : on dirait qu’il ne ressent aucune pression malgré les enjeux énormes.

Ça vous étonne que Marvel commence tout juste à offrir ce genre de rôle à une femme ?
J’ai développé mon imaginaire autour de héros et d’anti-héros masculins. Mais à force, si c’est la seule option, on commence à s’ennuyer, les garçons comme les filles. S’il y a des femmes et des hommes, ça veut dire beaucoup plus de potentiel dramatique.

Vous avez potassé les comics et la mythologie nordique ?
Pas tellement la mythologie nordique mais je me suis plongée dans les comics. Je suis une actrice qui a besoin d’une référence visuelle pour incarner un personnage, peu importe le rôle. Mes gamins ont des anthologies DC et Marvel, avec les backstories des personnages, entre les années 30, 40, 50… On voit les super-héros évoluer, comme quand Captain America acquiert la capacité de résister aux effets de l’alcool (rire).

Avez-vous eu votre mot à dire sur l’aspect visuel de Hela ?
Je savais qu’il y avait beaucoup de marge de manoeuvre. Les illustrateurs avaient tous leur propre idée de ce à quoi elle devait ressembler. Il y avait quelques version d’Hela où elle ne portait pas grand-chose… On était carrément du côté Playboy, là ! Avec la maquilleuse, on a longuement échangé avec les gens des effets spéciaux pour trouver “notre” Hela.

Comment avez-vous appréhendé la motion capture ?
J’en avais déjà fait un peu par le passé. Andy Serkis a été un pionnier extraordinaire de cette technologie, sa performance est toujours visible entre les images de synthèse. Certaines personnes parlent des effets spéciaux et visuels comme s’ils étaient séparés du jeu d’acteur. Mais en fait c’est exactement comme de collaborer avec une doublure sur des scènes d’action. Le but, c’est de créer un personnage. C’est une discussion permanente avec les gens des effets spéciaux : parfois je fais quelque chose qui les inspire, et parfois c’est dans l’autre sens. C’est très collaboratif. C’est fini le temps où on jouait face à une balle de tennis sur un fond bleu. Le processus a beaucoup évolué et Taika insiste pour que les choses soient le plus réaliste possible. Je n’ai pas besoin de faire semblant, tout est là, dans le décor. C’est la synthèse parfaite entre ce que vous pouvez voir et ce que le réalisateur imagine. Un truc hybride.

SFX – December 2017



Karl Urban can’t stop gushing about “Thor: Ragnarok” costar Cate Blanchett, is all of us


In the ultimate example of stars being just like us, Karl Urban — Eomer in the Lord of the Rings films and Bones in the Star Trek movies — is just as amazed by actual goddess and Thor: Ragnarok costar Cate Blanchett as we all are.

And given that we’re completely obsessed, that’s saying a lot.
In fact, Blanchett — along with director Taika Waititi and the emotionally compelling script — was a major draw for Urban when signing on for Thor: Ragnarok, in which he plays Skurge, the Executioner, opposite Blanchett’s Hela, Goddess of Death.

“She was one of the main reasons that I decided to do this film,” Urban told HelloGiggles. “Practically all of my scenes were with her, and I just have so much love and respect for Cate and her professionalism, how she approaches the role.
“Just being part of the conversation leading up to it, discussing the characters and how they interacted and what their purpose was, it was just a wonderful process.”
You’d think working with a talent as great as Blanchett in such a twisted role could be a little intimidating.

I mean, even Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, basically said as much. But for Urban, it was quite the contrary.

“No, she’s lovely. I wasn’t intimidated at all,” he explained. That said, he did welcome a, um, return to her brighter look by production’s end. “I must say, it was wonderful to finally see her with blonde hair, as she had this black wig on the entire time. Literally, every time I’d see her for the entire six weeks we were shooting, she was in that character, in that mode.”

But that doesn’t mean that Urban and Blanchett didn’t bro out in between takes.
* You read that right, CATE BLANCHETT BROS OUT *

Marvel productions tend to bring out bromances (Science Bros, anyone?), and Urban explained that Thor: Ragnarok was no exception. “My bromance [on set] was with Cate. We had so much fun,” he said. And added that it was also a pleasure to work with Waititi, who kept a very fluid and creative set, with music constantly playing. “It seemed like the most un-work work environment that I’ve ever experienced.”

As for Blanchett’s character, Hela is Marvel’s first female villain and she’s as badass as they come — and Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie is equally kickass. Urban said of both, “There is great strength in both of their characters. Both of them have a wonderful swagger, they’re both strong, independent individuals, and I think that they just simply made the film better.”

Cate Blanchett – SK II #ChangeDestiny limited edition reveal in NY

Cate Blanchett – SK II #ChangeDestiny limited edition reveal in NY

Hello everyone!

Yesterday, Cate attended a press event to launch the new graffiti designed bottles (#YourStatementYourBottle) for SK-II Facial Treatment Essence in New York. The SKII Global Brand Ambassador went to the #ChangeDestiny limited edition reveal wearing a Christopher Kane dress. Here are some images, a video and an article.

Cate Blanchett had just gotten off the redeye from Greenland on Thursday morning, but by 11 a.m., she somehow looked better than most of us do on eight hours of sleep. Seriously, her skin was glowing and her under-eye bags were more or less nonexistent. Though, her travel routine probably has something to do with that.

“I have no shame, as soon as the lights go down on the plane, I put my mask on,” Blanchett, the face of SK-II, said. She mentioned that she’s a big fan of using the brand’s Brightening Derm Revival Mask and the classic Facial Treatment Essence, not caring what her fellow travelers think about her applying a sheet mask in flight.

Blanchett was in New York for the latest launch from SK-II, a limited edition makeover of their iconic Facial Treatment Essence Bottle. The theme of the revamp is Change Destiny, with a major push for positivity, embracing transformations and celebrating your own choices.

The Oscar-winning Australian actress is well-known for her on-screen intensity and effortless professionalism, but her flawless skin deserves some credit, too. She started using SK-II’s products well before she was tapped to be a global ambassador for the brand in 2007, claiming that she’s been devoted to the Essence for at least 15 years.

“I don’t think I could have predicted the positive level of change by simply being loyal to a product for so long,” the 48-year-old actress explained. “I noticed the change in my skin’s texture and tone after about three or four weeks, I thought this was extraordinary—and this was before I was associated with SK-II. So I just decided to stick with it.”


She also might be the most inspirational celeb with a beauty contract, as she’s not afraid to infuse her public appearances with a few reality checks. For example, along with the three positive mantras written on the new SK-II bottles (“Be the Person You Decide to be,” “Change is in All of Us” and “Destiny is a Matter of Choice”), Blanchett joked about adding one more to the range.

“There’s a fourth one that says, ‘We Should All Be Feminists,’” she deadpanned. And when asked about providing advice to women today, she acknowledged the position of which she was speaking from, “as a privileged white woman.”

Blanchett went on to share some words of wisdom, despite not being a big fan of giving advice—she prefers to lead by example.

“I think, particularly at the moment, it would involve [having] self-respect and not being frightened to call things out when they’re not right,” she said. The last part was perhaps in a nod to the current Hollywood scandal, involving allegations of Harvey Weinstein‘s various sexual assaults. Blanchett also endorsed the concept of working with and supporting other women, but not without referencing the current political climate.

“It feels like a very depressing time,” she admitted. “[But] I think it’s actually a very potentially positive time to turn that around. And if we act collectively, we can effect positive change, not just on our own destinies, but our destiny as a species.”

It’s a refreshing change, which is in line with the new SK-II range (arriving at Sephora and Sephora.com on October 20), that a beauty ambassador doesn’t just have to be a pretty talking head; she can take bold stances and share her own beliefs, too.
