Cody Fern Reveals How Cate Blanchett Inspired Him to Act

Cody Fern is billed as “Hollywood’s genderf–k rebel” on the cover of GQ Style‘s new issue.

Here is what the 30-year-old American Horror Story star had to share with the mag:

On seeing Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth: The Golden Age and becoming an actor: “After seeing that, something came alive again. I just realized I hated my life; I hated the people that I was hanging around with; I hated the music I was listening to; I hated the clothes I was wearing. I was like, ‘This is a slow and painful death, so I either have to go down with the ship or I have to swim fast and hard in hypothermic waters and figure it out.’ And I quit. I quit that day. I walked out and I joined an experimental theatre group.”

On men post-Harvey Weinstein and lesser behaviors going unpunished: “That’s a very dangerous area to be in, because somebody is able to say, ‘Well, I’m not Harvey Weinstein.’ So it excuses little behaviours that snowball into bigger behaviours… If you’re a little bit uncomfortable, who cares? If you’re worried, you probably have a problem. I’m all about sweep out the trash. I’ve got no sympathy.”
