Celebrities always manage to shock with their statements, but the recent comments made by Cate Blanchett were surely unexpected. The star talked about her romances history and claimed that she actually dated many women throughout the years.
The star made the revelation during an interview with Variety. The comments were made now, as Cate is actually promoting her latest movie, Carol, which is focused on the love between two women. The movie is set to make its world premiere on Sunday, at the Cannes Film Festival.
Well, during the interview, Cate was asked if she considered her own sexuality as a guide when preparing for the role in this movie. However, the actress simply answered that she “never thought about it.” Still, she compared her own experience with the one of the character she plays in Carol and alleged that she doesn’t think that “Carol thought about it,” referring to how she should define her sexuality.
Although she refused to reveal anything else, the star shared a conclusion. “I’ve made my choice and it’s men,” she explained. “I think that sexuality is a process, an evolution, and I realised when I had my first experience with a man, that everything beforehand had been pretend.”
The famous actress also revealed during her recent interview that she actually refuses to Google herself or to join social networks such as Twitter. “I think I’d end up in rehab,” the actress said. “That stuff is addictive,” she concluded.
Well, Carol is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and without a doubt this promises to be a very interesting performance. Cate already claimed that playing in this movie has been kind of hard for her due to its complexity. “It was so hard,” the star said. “Midrange films with women at the center are tricky to finance. There are a lot of people laboring under the misapprehension that people don’t want to see them, which isn’t true.”
The star also said that maybe conceptions will be changed now that the movie industry features so many powerful and talented women and they have “been a critical mass of women who have reached a certain place in the industry.”
