John Legend & Cate Blanchett Discuss Speaking Out as a Celebrity

Cate Blanchett, John Legend and former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg take the cover of Town & Country‘s June/July 2017 Philanthropy issue.

Here’s what they had to share with the mag:

John, on racism in modern day society: “People feel defensive around the subject of racism, and they shut down, because they feel like they may say the wrong thing and you’ll think less of them. But we have to deal with the fact that these issues have a real impact on people’s lives. There’s a real impact when they’re not getting called back after they’ve applied for a job because they have the wrong name. And there’s a real impact when a police officer assume a person to be more of a threat because of the color of the person’s skin. We are dealing with these things every day, and the only way we are going to fix them is if we confront them, listen to one another, and empathize with one another’s concerns. We can’t worry more about being accused of being racist than we do about actually fixing the racism problem.”

Cate, on being a celebrity who speaks out: “I feel an obligation to use my voice to speak up for those who are voiceless. It just so happens that my voice is able to reach a larger audience because of the fact that I have a public profile. If that were something that I thought was worthy of criticism or cynicism, then perhaps it would bother me that there are people out there who look to belittle or demonize those who are trying—in some small way—to help.”

John, on speaking out as a celeb: “Obviously, when you step out on anything that’s controversial, someone disagrees with you. And some people take that disagreement in stride and say, You know, I don’t agree with you, but I like your music, so I’ll still buy it, or, I’ll still come to your shows. Some people can’t separate the two and say, If I disagree with you politically, you’re not going to make money off of me. And that’s just the price that we have to be willing to pay… some of the greatest artists we’ve ever known have been willing to risk some social capital to try to improve the lives of other people.”

FYI: Cate is wearing Armani Privé on her cover.

Val Kilmer Reacts to Cate Blanchett Tweets: 'I Wrote Nice Things...And Now I'm a Pervert'

Val Kilmer made headlines this week when he couldn’t stop tweeting about his pal and former co-star Cate Blanchett.

At an event this week, Val was surprised by the attention he received from the story. During a Q&A of a screening of Citizen Twain, his one-man play, he was asked about his favorite co-star.

“I can’t say Cate Blanchett,” he joked (via People). “I wrote nice things about Cate Blanchett on Twitter and now I’m a pervert.”

“I don’t know why loving an actor that’s so talented is creepy, but I guess I’m creepy….It makes no sense. I didn’t say anything weird,” Val continued.

“I write about all my friends,” Val continued. “There’s no story. Nothing weird.”

Val Kilmer Can't Stop Tweeting About Cate Blanchett

Val Kilmer seems to really love Cate Blanchett and he has been expressing his admiration for her on Twitter for several days!

The 57-year-old actor worked with Cate on the 2003 movie The Missing and he clearly still harbors a lot of love for his former co-star.

“Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband [Andrew Upton] met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate,” Val tweeted along with a selfie of himself. In a tweet that appears to have been deleted, he added, “And recently I’ve had 2 dreams with #CateBlanchett in them. Her husband wasn’t in either of them.”

While visiting the World Trade Center in New York City the next day, Val continued to tweet about Cate.

“She’s just as amazing in person. Some super stars aren’t-Some superstars don’t do a thing to ya in person- Cate is so real it’s almost unreal,” he wrote.
