Cate Blanchett Covers 'Harper's Bazaar UK' April 2012

Cate Blanchett takes the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK‘s April 2012 issue, on newsstands Thursday (March 1).

Here’s what the 42-year-old Aussie actress had to share:

On her reluctance to direct film: “There is a film I’d love to direct, but I just don’t know if I’ve got the patience. In theatre, you can have an idea and get on with it. In film, you hear of people sitting on an idea for eight years, by which time the idea has changed and evolved and become something else.”

On wanting to play a James Bond villain: “Oh God! Yes! I’d be there in a heartbeat. I love Lotta Lenya [Ross Klebb in 1963's From Russia with Love]. She had a club foot and a limp. I’m not a purist in that way.”

On acting as her emotional outlet: “When you’re a teenager, you act things out rather than experience them, so that through a relationship being cataclysmic, you reach some emotional catharsis. I have that through work now, so I don’t need to act it out in my daily life. Not that I think all work is therapy.”
