Cate Blanchett Shares Career Advice at MoMA Film Benefit

A report of the benefit from Variety!

Cate Blanchett was honored at New York’s Museum of Modern Art’s 8th annual Film Benefit on Tuesday for her prolific contribution to cinema. While accepting the accolade, the two-time Oscar winning actress addressed the recent attacks in Paris.

“All my efforts and endeavors do feel insignificant given what’s going on in the world at the moment — the horrific events in Europe and the Middle East,” Blanchett told the crowd that included her “Aviator” director Martin Scorsese, “Blue Jasmine” costar Bobby Cannavale, Rose Byrne, Rooney Mara and Diane Kruger. “And the thousands of refugees who travel across the borders, and their plight, their peril has become even more only precarious and difficult.”

She added, “But, this is going to sound like a massive justification, perhaps it is in the face of what’s going on in the world, sometimes you’re presented with the opportunity of working on projects that perhaps might last and perhaps have something interesting and important to say, and last year was definitely one of those years for me.”

Blanchett was speaking about “Truth,” in which she plays CBS producer Mary Mapes, whose career ended abruptly following her report about President George W. Bush’s National Guard service and her role as a woman involved in a 1950s lesbian romance in Todd Haynes’s “Carol.” Ralph Fiennes — Blanchett’s costar in 1997’s “Oscar and Lucinda” — agreed that her work this year alone is unparalleled to any other performance.

“You’re a great artist, Cate. Only a few are able to expand their gift of acting into a sublime interpretation of humanness that reaches our souls and presses our heart and you have this gift, dear Cate,” said Fiennes from the stage. “It’s a wonder to see it and a gift for us too.”

In a videotaped message, Woody Allen, who famously skips awards ceremonies, joked, “Mercifully, I had a prior engagement,” but praised his “Blue Jasmine” leading lady for her acting. The filmmaker commented that before he directed Blanchett, “Everyone told me, ‘Hire Cate Blanchett and she’ll make you look like a genius!’”

On the red carpet, Blanchett spoke to Variety about the key ingredient to her successful two-decade career. She said her approach to acting changed after receiving advice from her drama teacher at the Sydney National Institute of Dramatic Art.

“My teacher said to me, ‘If you’re going to fail, fail gloriously,’” said Blanchett. “I’ve never forgotten it. You learn a lot from your mistakes. You have to take risks and make mistakes. It’s terrifying, but it’s the only way you will learn and improve.”

Manifesto – New stills

New stills have been released in a long interview with director Julian Rosefeldt.

You have an extraordinary collaborator in all this, the actor Cate Blanchett. She inhabits thirteen different roles set against twelve different scenarios. How did these characters and their dialogue evolve?

The main idea for Manifesto was not to illustrate the particular manifesto texts, but rather to allow Cate to embody the manifestos. Until the last third of the twentieth century there were only a few manifestos written by women artists. Most were written by men and they are just bursting with testosterone. So I thought it was thrilling to let them be spoken today by a woman.

One challenge was the huge amount of text to be spoken in twelve different accents which Cate had to overcome. And then each of the characters had to speak in a milieu represented by the colour of speech. As if this weren’t enough, for organisational shooting reasons sometimes we even had to cover two roles per day, which also meant an additional costume and makeup change each day for Cate and the hair and makeup team. For these reasons, we had to plan the shoot meticulously. But, here and there, a certain amount of spontaniety and improvisation was necessary. And of course Cate might have read the text or understood the respective scene differently from me, and so sometimes she surprised me with ideas, emerging from the depths of her profound experience and incredible talent. Every day was different and the way that the dialogue – or better, monologue – shaped the scene was constantly shifting and exciting. And despite the highest level of concentration and dedication, and the many working hours each day, Cate admirably retained her very special sense of humour during work. We laughed a lot.

In Manifesto you have used a Sol LeWitt text about Conceptual Art for a scene in which Cate Blanchett plays two characters, a news anchor and a reporter, both called ‘Cate’.  What is their relationship to LeWitt’s text?

This is an exceptional scene in a way. Rather than performing a manifesto, Cate is inhabited by LeWitt’s writing. She is the manifesto. The tussle between logic and illogic within the text is also inherent in the scene and the characters. It becomes a piece of conceptual art in a way, right?

Cate Blanchett takes emerging Australian actor Ryan Corr under her wing

ACADEMY Award winner Cate Blanchett has taken emerging Australian actor Ryan Corr under her wing.

Blanchett, who struck up a friendship with the Packed to the Rafters star when he played a role in the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of Sex with Strangers, said the 26-year-old has what it takes to make it in a very fickle industry.

Blanchett, who features in the December issue of Vogue Australia, a tribute edition to her and husband Andrew Upton’s contribution to the arts in Australia, said: “Ryan’s talent and adventurous spirit are enervating to be around.

“His work ethic is inspiring but he makes it all look so easy.

“His generosity as an actor is palpable on stage and screen, and the ­relationships we witness him in have such chemistry as he invests his energy in connecting with, and getting under the skin of, not only the character he’s playing but actors he’s working opposite.”

When Confidential told Corr about Blanchett’s fondness for him, he was almost speechless.

“It makes me feel all giddy on the inside, she is a goddess,” he said. “That is so lovely to hear.

“Obviously Cate is a women crush of mine and a goddess on stage and ­incredible at what she does.”

He said he has enjoyed his time with the STC and hopes to continue to work with the respected company.

“It is a real family over there and I think they make amazing work,” he said.

“It has been wonderful to be part of that circle for a while and to be invited back is a wonderful privilege and hopefully that is a pat on the bum saying ‘you’re doing the right thing’.”

The December issue of Vogue will hit the stands on Monday, November 23.
