Cate Blanchett: Brad Pitt is Tireless

Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett was just interviewed by Reuters about her role as Brad Pitt‘s soulmate in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, out in theaters now. Here are the highlights:

This is your second film with Brad Pitt after co-starring with him in Babel” Is there anything noteworthy about working with him that the moviegoer might be interested in knowing/ He is unbelievably committed to what he does. … In both films, there’s been a sense that he’s asked really difficult questions of the film before he’s committed, and he sort of tends to be, I suppose from the outside, a little bit reticent to jump in. But that’s only because he wants to know if he’s going to commit 100 percent, he wants to know that the film’s going to be as committed as he is. And so I really admire him for that. He’s really tireless.

You’re not a dancer by trade, but is it true that you had some childhood dance instruction? Yeah, I studied ballet, but also in drama school the most powerful training for me was the movement training. And look, if I had my way over again, I’d be a Butoh dancer (contemporary dance form originating in Japan), or I’d desperately try and finagle my way into working with (modern dance choreographer) ‘Pina’ Bausch. So, (in Benjamin Button) I worked with Michelle Johnston, who was the choreographer.

BTW, if you haven’t seen Button yet. Run to your local movie theater and see it!!! It’s fantastic.
