Cate Blanchett Questions the Coronavirus Response From Certain Countries Around the World

Cate Blanchett Questions the Coronavirus Response From Certain Countries Around the World

Cate Blanchett poses for photos as the Jury President for the 2020 Venice Film Festival photo call on Wednesday (September 2) in Venice, Italy.

She was joined by fellow jury members Matt Dillon, Nicola Lagioia, Joanna Hogg, Veronika Franz, Ludivine Sagnier and Christian Petzold.

While at the press conference for the festival that day, Cate was asked about gathering (with masks and safety measures.)

She spoke about how other countries are dealing with the Coronavirus, saying, “Yes, Uncle Economy seems to be the most important member of the family. I find it bizarre that the World Health Organization is not being allowed to lead this global challenge. I think we’re a very strange species that we don’t learn by the painful examples, for example the terrible stress that Italy was under and when it reached other countries they didn’t learn a painful lesson – the way things were handled and the challenges those countries that were first hit and what they faced and what other countries could perhaps prepare for. It’s a very strange thing that I still don’t quite understand, that we behave in quite obtuse and fragmented and destructive ways.”

FYI: Cate is wearing Giorgio Armani.
