Cate Blanchett Covers 'W' June 2010
Here’s what the 41-year-old Robin Hood actress had to share:
On the public’s inaccurate perception of her: “I’m so misunderstood! I’m not focused on what other people think of me. Some people get you and some people don’t, and to spend your life trying to make people understand how deep and complex and varied you are—I think that way lies madness.”
On husband Andrew Upton‘s influence: “My husband keeps me really honest. I remember him saying to me after I made Elizabeth, ‘Sweetheart, you’ve probably got about about five years.’ He was preparing me for the time when the work dries up, as it invariably does.”
On working with Andrew: “We’re really open. I have friends—she’s an actor/writer married to a director—and she was horrified when we said we were going to work together. She said they don’t talk about work because they don’t want to venture into the territory of being criticized by you partner. But I know what to do with the criticism.”
FYI: Cate accessorized with Chopard diamond earrings, LaCrasia gloves and an Hermes belt. For more from Cate, visit WMagazine.com!
