Because Santa Jesus just can’t stop giving. And because ELLE Canada wasn’t going to be left out of the fun.
Cate Blanchett covers the January 2014 issue of ELLE Canada magazine.
Is it hard for you to find interesting roles?
“I’ve been very lucky to play iconic roles like Blanche DuBois, Lotte Kotte and Hedda Gabler onstage, but cinema is a different beast. You are not always able to influence the final results in the same way as you can in the theatre. So I’m not always interested in large roles onscreen. I’m more interested in making the space to keep experimenting as an actor. What’s important when you’re working on a film is that you want to work with a director who is going to collaborate with you or who is interested in what you can offer.”
What drew you to the character of Jasmine in Woody’s last film?
“Post-financial crisis, so many men and women have had their worlds shattered and they have fallen from grace. And, like Jasmine, they have had to look at themselves directly in the mirror and reinvent themselves and find out who they are without their social standing, without economic security. I think this story is very current. The unique thing about Jasmine, however, is that she has been a fantasist and has never had a firm grip on who she is or on reality.”
Is this her year? We kinda hope so. We realize Sandy and probably Julia are making a run for the Best Actress Oscar, but Cate’s our girl – and we loved her in Blue Jasmine.

Way to go, whoever styled her, because it looks chic and gorgeous on the cover, but strangely dowdy on the runway.
