Children certainly teach one about compromise. I think before having children the idea of compromise rubbed shoulders with weakness or deception in some way.

cate-blanchett-mr-porter-magazineBlanchett appears on the cover of the December 2014 issue of Porter magazine. She talks about the media, Emma Watson, and being judged by other moms.

You know there’s an extra judgment. You know they’re really observing how you parent. They don’t know that you cram everything in to make space for your kids like any working parent. Playing the lead in a film where you shoot for three months away from home is not an easy thing for me when my children are in school and my husband is running a theater company. They assume you have a nanny and a driver and a chef. Who gives a sh*t whether I do or not? The fact is, I don’t, but you know there is a certain circle of people – and we all get insecure – who then ask, ‘Why can’t she brush her hair?’ You just have to shrug that off.

Wins Oscar

Oscar0 Comments

Blanchett wins the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of a formerly wealthy woman who moves in with her sister, in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. Daniel Day-Lewis presents the award.

And me, I’m here accepting an award in an extraordinary screenplay by Woody Allen. Thank you so much, Woody, for casting me. I truly appreciate it. I’m so very proud that “Blue Jasmine” stayed in the cinemas for as long as it did. And thank you to Sony Classics, to Michael and Tom, for their extraordinary support, for so bravely and intelligently distributing the film. And to the audiences who went to see it, and perhaps those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films with women at the center are niche experiences. They are not. Audiences want to see them and, in fact, they earn money. So… The world is round, people!

I guess if I analyze it I could work it out in relation to my own age, but it’s a piece of information that my brain won’t let me compute.

This is utterly incredible to me. I mean, the iconography of this is not only famous in this country but around the world and location, location, location! I

I would be outside the men’s urinals five miles from here, but I’m outside The Egyptian, which is also incredible to me.
