Welcome to Cate Blanchett Fan, your prime resource for all things Cate Blanchett. Here you'll find all the latest news, pictures and information. You may know the Academy Award Winner from movies such as Elizabeth, Blue Jasmine, Carol, The Aviator, Lord of The Rings, Thor: Ragnarok, among many others. We hope you enjoy your stay and have fun!
Cate along with the cast of “The House with A Clock in Its Walls” are promoting the movie in the UK so we have new material; IMAX released a vintage looking poster reminiscent of some classic 80’s films, a new behind the scenes clip from the director’s diary and we have two interviews, one from The One Show and in the other Cate is also asked about her character Hela in Thor Ragnarok. Enoy!
She is praised by many as the Australian actress that has become one of the biggest Hollywood stars, as well as among the most bankable names in the tinseltown over the years. Cate Blanchett flaunted her love for sports cars recently when she was spotted driving a Porsche convertible, looking for a spot to go shopping in Sydney. The world-popular 49-year-old actress looked like the perfect picture of chic elegance as she was seen gently coming out of her luxury drive. Cate Blanchett was last seen in Ocean’s 8, the female version of Ocean’s 11 in which she played the female equivalent of Brad Pitt’s character. Her chemistry with Sandra Bullock in the movie is not to be missed!
A picture of elegance
Getting back to Cate Blanchett’s Sydney outing, she was seen sporting a concerned and serious expression as she hopped out of her silver Porsche. She was wearing a flowing bone coloured overcoat, over a plain white blouse, both of which beautifully covered her svelte frame. She combined that with a pair of three-quarter drawstring pants of the same tone, adding a casual cool air to the ensemble. The Oscar-winning actress completed her outfit with a pair of nude sneakers, with her short flaxen locks blowing away in the comforting Sydney breeze. Cate used a brown leather handbag and tortoise shell-frame sunglasses to accessorise.
Outing with the family
A reliable source revealed to Dailymail Australia that Cate Blanchett was out in Sydney with her husband Andrew Upton for a spot of shopping. Not too long ago both were also spotted indulging in a rare PDA. It was further revealed by the insider source that the couple donated a handful of used clothes to Red Cross, with Andrew coming very close to making the fatal error of giving away one of the actress’s designer handbags. Being the kind of in-demand actress that Cate Blanchett is, she has everything but free time on hand, something that was well evident in how she was constantly glued to her phone throughout the outing. She could be seen chatting happily with the mystery person on the other end (of the phone), waving in between to someone, believed to be her husband Andrew.
Guest appearance in ‘Documentary Now!’
Recently it was also announced that Cate Blanchett will make a guest star appearance as a Marina Abramovic-type of performance artist in a soon to be aired episode of ‘Documentary Now!.’ Titled appropriately as ‘Waiting for the Artist’ after the widely acclaimed documentary from 2012 – Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present, Cate Blanchett’s character Barta will be seen reconciling her relationship with her former lover named Dimo Van Omen (played by Fred Armisen), who is known to be a provocateur of the art world. This episode was shot at a location in Budapest, Hungary few months ago. As everyone might be aware, IFC with ‘Documentary Now!’ is all set for two Emmy nominations and scoring an excellent second quarter growth. That they are going to have an Oscar-winning actress in an episode is only going to increase their popularity even more!
More great news for 2019! Time to watch Cate on TV!
Cate Blanchett will guest star as a Marina Abramovic-type performance artist in an upcoming episode of IFC’s Documentary Now!
The episode, titled “Waiting for the Artist,” is a take-off on the acclaimed 2012 documentary Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present. Like the real doc, the parody follows an acclaimed performance artist – in this case, Izabella Barta, played by Blanchett – as she prepares for a major exhibition.
In the Documentary Now! episode, Blanchett’s Barta is “reconciling” her relationship with a former lover Dimo Van Omen (Fred Armisen), known as an infamous provocateur of the art world. The episode was shot on location in Budapest, Hungary earlier this summer.
“On the heels of two Emmy nominations and tremendous second quarter growth, IFC now has a two time Oscar winner in an episode of Documentary Now,” said acting IFC General Manager, Blake Callaway. “Cate’s portrayal of an art world superstar has her doing it all: performance art, comedy, and even her own stunts.”
Documentary Now! was created by Armisen, Bill Hader, Seth Meyers and Rhys Thomas and is executive produced by Lorne Michaels. Each episode of the series, hosted by Dame Helen Mirren, is patterned on a famous documentary or style of documentary, like The Thin Blue Line or Grey Gardens. Previous guest stars include Faye Dunaway, Mia Farrow, Maya Rudolph, John Slattery and others.
The series is also executive produced by Alex Buono and Broadway Video’s Andrew Singer. Thomas and Buono serve as the show’s directors, with John Mulaney and Erik Kenward returning as consulting producers, and Alice Mathias serving as co-executive producer and Matt Pacult serving as co-producer.
The new seven-episode season of Documentary Now! is set to premiere Wednesday, February 20 at 10 PM on IFC.
Good evening! First of all, we wish to thank (another) Sandra for her generous donation; second, Vulture just published a very nice article on Cate’s movie career (here). To all the new fans, it’s an useful reading to catch up with her career, and to all the “old” fans, maybe it’s time to rediscover some great movies.
Talking about films, we recovered the first (and only) TV movie Cate Blanchett was in: Parklands. Below you can find the little material available online. The 51-minutes-long movie is featured in the DVD of Travelling Light, directed by same author, Professor Kathryn Millard. Enjoy!
Rosie returns to her home city on the death of her father, a former policeman. His diaries hint at corruption, and she also receives hints and veiled threats which support her suspicions. Rosie puzzles about who he was, and about her early life and relationship to him.
To complete our gallery we only miss, as far as we know, one more movie and a tv serie episode: Police Rescue – The movie (1994), available only in VHS, and G.P. “Natural Selection” (6×27) aired on August 9, 1994. If you have them, please contact us.
UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Cate Blanchett is warning of a ‘race against time’ to protect Rohingya refugees from the impact of the upcoming monsoon season in Bangladesh. Increased rainfall, potential cyclones and adverse weather conditions are threatening to put hundreds of thousands of Rohingya refugees at serious risk in the coming months.
