EXCLUSIVE: Cate Blanchett on Armani Perfume and Acting
The actress stars in the newest spot for Sì, lensed by Fleur Fortuné


PARIS ­— Cate Blanchett appears in the newest ad campaign for Giorgio Armani’s Sì fragrance franchise, including a film lensed by Fleur Fortuné. Just prior to its release in early February, Blanchett shared with WWD some thoughts on perfume and acting.

WWD: How would you describe the Sì fragrance woman?

Cate Blanchett: The Sì woman — a woman I myself aspire to be — is adventurous, full of emotion, open to the world and experience, and comfortable in her own skin.

WWD: How does being the face of a fragrance differ from playing a role in a film?

C.B.: Being the so-called “face” of this fragrance — I think I’d prefer to say “the spirit” of this fragrance. So being this Sì “spirit” is all about creating an atmosphere in which I can inhabit myriad states. Being a Sì woman isn’t a static thing — it’s full of flow: joy, apprehension, excitement, desire, risk and frivolity. And love, bien sûr!

WWD: What are some early memories of perfume?

C.B.: The home of my childhood was always fragrant — a house full of women! Lavender, freesia, firewood, the smell of the sea, of whatever was cooking. I remember my grandmother always smelling of violets and my mother of citrus. Fragrance, like music, always lifts my spirits.

WWD: What do you like in a fragrance?

C.B.: The deep developing notes. I love a scent that promises to contain experiences yet to be had.

WWD: Aside from the role you play at Armani, what other projects are you working on right now?

C.B.: I’m in a play at the National Theatre in London, [“When We Have Sufficiently Tortured Each Other”] directed by Katie Mitchell and written by Martin Crimp. It’s about gender politics — power and the eternal struggle for intimacy and equality…not everyone’s cup of tea, but it’s a provocative piece for sure.

WWD: Are there any types of characters you’ve never had a chance to try out that you’d like to?

C.B.: The character for me is always the last point of entry. It’s always about the quality of the conversation and the people I will be working alongside. I love surprises. The roles, I haven’t willed into being, if that makes sense. The role I would least expect to play.

Cate Blanchett gets a sculpture as part of the Statues for Equality project

Cate Blanchett gets a sculpture as part of the Statues for Equality project

Hello everyone!

We got amazing news earlier today! Cate has been immortalized in a huge bronze statue!

Cate Blanchett is among the 10 inspirational women that are being honored with a larger-than-life bronze sculpture as part of the #StatuesforEquality campaign by public artists Gillie and Marc. The project aims to balance gender representation in public art and honor women’s contributions to society. Oprah, Pink and Nicole Kidman are also among the first women taking part in this project.
The unveiling of ten bronze statues is set to take place on Women’s Equality Day: August 26th, 2019, on RXR Realty’s iconic Avenue of the Americas in New York City.
Cate’s statue is a creation based on a single image from the 2003 photoshoot by Matt Jones for Movieline’s Hollywood Life magazine and according to the campaign’s official site: “Blanchett is striking a pose in a flowering waratah, a flower native to south-east Australia. As well as having the same country of origin, the waratah is considered an Australian icon for its natural beauty and is often given as a gift, particularly to stage actors on closing night. ”
We can’t wait for this event! Enjoy some photos and visit #StatuesforEquality website to learn more about it!

CATE BLANCHETT: ACTRESS, DIRECTOR, ACTIVIST Gillie and Marc’s Statues for Equality campaign aims to balance gender representation in public art. Gender inequality is a key issue facing Americans today, reflected by the disparity in public art – a mere 3% of statues in New York City depict real women. The installation of ten larger than life bronze statues of inspiring women in New York City will bring this up to over 10%! Through illustrating history and expressing stories of achievement, sculptures inspire and motivate generations; so we believe in immortalising women who’ve inspired and motivated us. Help us continue our mission to balance gender representation in public art by hashtagging #statuesforequality and nominating the next woman you’d like to see immortalised in bronze. #cateblanchett

We have big news! We are excited to announce that we have officially launched the project, Statues For Equality. In NYC, only 3.3% of the statues of historical figures are women, but women have made a much bigger contribution than this. It’s time to make things equal, and to get the contributions of some of these women recognised. We’ll be creating statues of some of the most influential women of our time and are honoured to be working with people such as Jane Goodall, Cate Blanchett, Oprah, and Pink. We hope that young boys and girls can look up at the statues of NY and see not just the faces of men, but of women too, teaching them that anything is possible. We hope you’re as excited as we are!

Hello Blanchetters!

‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ release date has been pushed back by Annapurna Pictures, Variety has reported.

Annapurna Pictures has moved its Richard Linklater literary adaptation “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” starring Cate Blanchett back five months from March 22 to an Aug. 9 release.

A rep for Annapurna explained that August has served well as a launching pad for release of female-skewing films such as “Crazy Rich Asians,” “Florence Foster Jenkins” and “Julie and Julia.” Additionally, “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” will offer a change of pace following a summer of sequels and action movies.
