Cate Quotes
"I can't imagine becoming big-headed about my success," says Blanchett. "I think I'm so thrilled simply to be in the position where I am now that I wouldn't know how to be arrogant or obnoxious to people. I worry about the pressure sometimes but so far I don't feel stressed by my career. I don't panic every time I'm offered a big role and wonder whether I should take the money or do a smaller film that is more to my liking. Lately I've been able to do all sorts of films - big and small - and I couldn't be happier. "
"I'm very interested in the ephemerality of the theater. It's like falling in love, really. People talk about those gossamer days when they first me the love f their life. I think the same thing happens in theater. Every night 300 or 400 or 500 people are going to see something that's only going to happen once. It's a bit like a cloudscape--it's never exactly the same.
"Every single time you start a film, it's like the first day of school. It's good to have that edge to things."
"And I hope I've got hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of laugh lines."
"The more successful your position becomes, the more important it is to take risks and embrace the right to fail...very publicly."
"I would rather commit euthanasia on my career than let my life slip away from me. Having said that, I must say that I'm not ready to kill my career just yet. I'm having too much fun."
"In the Elizabethan Age, life was so short, experience so heightened. I think it's naive to think the Elizabethans didn't feel raging desire and anxiety."
"Actresses can get outrageously precious about the way they look. That's not what life's about. If you starve yourself to the point where your brain cells shrivel, you will never do good work. And if you're overly conscious of your arms flapping in the wind, how can you look the other actor in the eye to respond to them?"
"Once I was at an awards ceremony a few years ago and there was this ramp up to the stage and I spent the whole night praying, praying that I wouldn't win. I didn't! I as so happy! I didn't have to deal with the ramp!"
"[Connie is] the goodness in the film. Her sense of self lies in the world she has created, her cushions, the family, and the certainty that she and her husband share an unconditional love. Of course, ultimately she sill ends up like Munch's 'The Scream'"-- about character in "Pushing Tin"
"I don't want to do things out of some sense of desperation that the work might dry up"
"I go into home ware stores and I pick up whisks, and I just think, 'Oh, What if one day I could own a whisk-and a full set of cutlery.' People must think I'm demented"
"I can walk down the street and it's good, because .. If you're part of life, you can still represent it."
"I find theater incredibly humbling because the bald moments are so clear and the moments which soar are so glittering. You absolutely need to deliver."
"People say, 'My God, This has all happened so quickly,' and I understand what they're saying when they talk about this. They're talking about the films I've done, but the steps to me have been incremental."
