Cate Blanchett Covers 'Harper's Bazaar Australia' Magazine May 2013

Cate Blanchett graces the cover of Harper Bazaar Australia‘s May 2013 issue, out on newsstands now!

Here’s what the 43-year-old Aussie actress had to share:

On being criticized for her avant-garde style: “Couture is a cabinet of curiosities. It’s a place of experimentation and I think the red carpet is a great place to display it. I knew people would either hate that [2009 crochet] dress or really love it. People get so worried about what everybody thinks. But I love Romance Was Born because they have a great anarchic freedom. We enjoy their company. They’ve had a couple of shows in the space here [at Sydney Theatre Company's The Wharf] and they always come to our Christmas parties.”

On her elegant white Armani business shirt, camel-coloured Donna Karan suit with sock-less camel sneakers attire: “This is all a bit old but I love it.”

On art & the theater: “Theatre is full of influences from other art forms and that’s what makes it extraordinary. When you go to the opera, you come home talking about the voices. After the ballet, you talk about the dancers. But when you go to the theatre, you end up talking about politics, art, your marriage and your hopes and dreams. So as theatremakers we have to be engaging with artists from all different disciplines.”

  • R.

    She is not conventionally beautiful but she is very striking and she is what John Rhys-Davies called her–luminous. Galadria (sp?) royal.

  • Lucy

    Goddess. Cate ins the best. Talented, Nice person and gorgeous.

  • Bill

    Talented, nice and gorgeous when photo-shopped. But she can’t seem to project very well for such an allegedly intelligent, international actor. Who is she to say that opera and dance are without substance: no politics, no marriage, no hopes and no dreams?! And, she argues, that dance and ballet are not influenced by other art forms?! How can a supposed imaginative being could be so narrow minded?

  • L

    They’re seldomy perceived by the audience though. She’s right about that.

  • Doeg

    You are wrong and so is Blanchett. Don’t speak about something you or are Blanchett obviously know nothing about.

    Don’t speak about something you obviously fail to understand.
