Cate Blanchett Is Bored Of The Same Conversation About Women In Hollywood: 'Get On With It'

Cate Blanchett flashes a smile alongside Topher Grace while attending The Academy Of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences New Members Reception held at the American Ambassadors Residence, Winfield House, Regents Park on Wednesday (October 14) in London, England.

The 46-year-old actress and Topher, 37, were joined by Kate Beckinsale, Cate‘s Carol co-star Rooney Mara, Jeremy Piven, and interior designer Fran Hickman at the event hosted by Ambassador Matthew Barzun and Mrs Brooke Barzun.

Cate recently opened up about being bored with the conversation on whether there are enough complex roles for females in Hollywood.

“Every time there’s interesting, complex roles played by actresses on-screen, someone says, ‘Do you think this is a breakthrough?’ and ‘Does this mean there’s going to be more of the same?’” Cate told reporters (via VanityFair). “We seem to find ourselves in the same conversation and that’s somehow remarkable. I think there’s a swathe of great roles for women and, certainly, there’s some wonderful female performers. It’s just time to get on with it, really.”

    So many women are interesting, so female characters should be the same. I Love Cate

    I’m not getting the drift of her point. She’s successful and no question an acclaimed actress..but it’s only a few who get those breakthrough roles. She’s the female version of Matt Dillon. Privileged and arrogant.

    One example of breakthrough writing is 500 foolscap pages on “why I want to drive trains”, or an essay about the question “does an electric train emit smoke/steam?”, and a manual that would maintain all this. I think women in the heavy industry opt more for the electrical engineer roles to which they are really smart apt and meets the requirements for good color sight.
