First look: Cate Blanchett and Chris Hemsworth cover Vogue Australia’s November 2017 issue

Hey everyone!

Cate and Chris look absolutely gorgeous together in the new photoshoot for Vogue Australia. Here are some HQ images.

In this issue, which hits stands on October 30, Vogue profiles Cate Blanchett and Chris Hemsworth: the quintessential Australian Hollywood success story.

Photographed by Will Davidson and styled by Vogue’s fashion director Christine Centenera, Cate Blanchett wears Louis Vuitton and Chris Hemsworth wears Commas, Jac + Jack and Sandro on the cover of Vogue Australia’s November 2017 issue.

Hemsworth is Thor, the star of a multibillion-dollar comic franchise, Blanchett is the Oscar-winning actress playing the first female Marvel supervillain. Together Chris Hemsworth and Cate Blanchett represent the quintessential Australian Hollywood success story. In the cover interview with Vogue’s deputy editor Sophie Tedmanson, Hemsworth admits it was at first daunting playing opposite the two-time Oscar-winning actress who is renowned for her extraordinary acting ability and ethereal beauty.

“It was sort of intimidating at first,” he admits. “Especially the lead-up to meeting her, I was like: ‘Okay, this is Cate Blanchett’ … My nerves were certainly more elevated than usual. No matter how many times I tell myself: ‘I’m the lead, I’m the number one on the call sheet’, it still feels like I shouldn’t be; it feels like I’ve cheated somehow. I remember trying to talk myself into feeling better about it, like: ‘Cate Blanchett is coming onto my set’, ‘It’s my film, I’m Thor’ and then another part of me is like: ‘None of that matters!’ But then she comes in and immediately I thought: ‘Oh great, she is wonderful and normal and easy to get along with, and hilarious and has a great sense of humour and all of that.’”

For Blanchett, meeting Hemsworth for the first time went like this: “Chris really led the tone of the set – he’s a genuine leading man in that role. From the minute I met him, I knew it was going to be great.”

In the interview, Hemsworth and Blanchett discuss family, friendship and making movies together.

Blanchett says she loves working at home and was relieved Thor: Ragnarok was shot in Australia, which was actually suggested by Hemsworth. “Our two eldest children were born in England and a lot of our formative experiences as a couple were in the UK,” she says. “But we remain incredibly connected to Australia – my mother, my sister and brother are all still there. And, of course, our theatre family is there and Andrew’s work. So we base ourselves in the UK and it’s a constant perk, because Australia is incredibly magnetic. I’ve lived it on a daily basis.”

Hemsworth attributes his own character to his upbringing: “I think you advertise what you are for starters. My parents taught us to treat everyone equally and with respect and humility.”

He adds: “I’ve done plenty of other things and thought: ‘I don’t want to spend my life doing this.’ So I’ve got nothing but gratification for what I do.”

SUPERSTAR Cate Blanchett has a confession. Uber-hunk Chris Hemsworth makes her want to throw up — but not in a bad way.

“He makes me want to vomit, he’s so good looking.” Blanchett said of her latest co-star.

“All I want to do when I see Chris is just goof off.”

And the awe is mutual. Asked about working on their new film Thor: Ragnarok, Hemsworth said: “It was sort of intimidating at first.

“Especially in the lead-up to meeting her, I was like, ‘Okay, this is Cate Blanchett’. She’s godlike, in my opinion.”

The Aussie stars, who grace the cover of the November issue of Vogue Australia, play on opposing sides as Hela and Thor in the new blockbuster, shot on the Gold Coast by New Zealand director Taika Waititi.

The Oscar-winning actor admits to being a little surprised at her success.

“When I first went to drama school, I really thought I’d give myself five years — because there were a lot of extraordinary actors in the theatre and I thought: ‘I’m not that strong’,” Blanchett said.

“All I wanted to do was travel with my work and have the respect of my peers.

“I don’t know whether I’ve got the latter, but I’ve certainly done the former.”
