Cate Blanchett covers the October 2018 issue of British Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Will Davidson and styled by Charlie Harrington.
On weighing in on social media: “Me weighing in on social media about whether I believe something or don’t believe something is in the first instance unhelpful to the goal that I am ultimately interested in, in a profound and a legal and a moral way: being called to account,” she says. “There are some things that have to go through a democratic process. The precedent needs to be set.”
On the #MeToo Movement: “I think the biggest and most profound change that I’ve felt is the way that women are talking to each other, that has really shifted. We didn’t want to be seen to be a problem, or tell other women we had issues; we were sort of self-isolating.” She tells me about a job she did, “where the male director really divided all the female members of the cast, and we didn’t realise until afterwards…it’s the classic divide and conquer, isn’t it? I think that has shifted in a permanent way.”
