Cate Blanchett As Cinderella's Wicked Stepmother Is Exactly As We Pictured Her - See The New Posters!

Check out Cate Blanchett as the Wicked Stepmother in these new Cinderella posters!

Flanked by her spoiled daughters, Anastasia (Holliday Grainger) and Drisella (Sophie McShera), the poster is just one of three new images from the upcoming Disney movie.

The story of “Cinderella” follows the fortunes of young Ella (Lily James) whose merchant father remarries following the death of her mother. Eager to support her loving father, Ella welcomes her new stepmother and her daughters Anastasia and Drisella into the family home. But, when Ella’s father unexpectedly passes away, she finds herself at the mercy of a jealous and cruel new family.

Finally relegated to nothing more than a servant girl covered in ashes, and spitefully renamed Cinderella, Ella could easily begin to lose hope. Yet, despite the cruelty inflicted upon her, Ella is determined to honor her mother’s dying words and to “have courage and be kind.” She will not give in to despair nor despise those who mistreat her. And then there is the dashing stranger she meets in the woods — unaware that he’s the Prince (Richard Madden)!

Cinderella opens in theaters on March 13th, 2015.

Cate Blanchett is 'So F-king Proud of Emma Watson'

Cate Blanchett is all windswept and gorgeous on the cover of PORTER magazine’s latest issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old Oscar winning actress had to share with the mag:

On the media: “I’m really fascinated by what we accept and what we ignore and how we process the white noise being shoveled down our throats. It used to be you’d go to the hairdressers and pick up those evil magazines and feel dirty. It’s like watching too much porn, I guess.”

On Emma Watson‘s famous UN speech: “I was so fu*king proud of Emma Watson’s speech at the UN. It was brilliant, such an incredible use of her airspace, and really passionate. It was fantastic.”

On moving to Sydney: “We’re really boring. We’ve got three kids; I’m not married to an actor. No one’s interested in us, and that’s part of the reason why we live here – because nobody gives a sh*t.”

On being judged by other moms: “You know there’s an extra judgment. You know they’re really observing how you parent. They don’t know that you cram everything in to make space for your kids like any working parent. Playing the lead in a film where you shoot for three months away from home is not an easy thing for me when my children are in school and my husband is running a theater company. They assume you have a nanny and a driver and a chef. Who gives a sh*t whether I do or not? The fact is, I don’t, but you know there is a certain circle of people – and we all get insecure – who then ask, ‘Why can’t she brush her hair?’ You just have to shrug that off.”

Cate Blanchett Stresses Free Education & Healthcare During Speech at Gough Whitlam's Memorial Service (Video)

Cate Blanchett takes the stage for her speech during the State Memorial Service for Gough Whitlam on Wednesday (November 5) in Sydney, Australia.

The 45-year-old actress expressed her gratitude for the progress the late Australian Prime Minister made, and said she felt a “great sorrow” over his death.

“When I went to university, I could explore different courses and engage with the student union in extra-curricular activities. It was through that that I discovered acting,” Cate said. “I am the beneficiary of good, free healthcare that meant that the little I earned after tax and rent could go towards seeing shows, bands, and living inside my generation’s expression.”

She also said, “I am a working mother of three, and when I took on the role in Little Fish, I had just my second child. No one batted an eyelid. No one passed judgment and no one deemed me incapable because the culture around women, and the right of women to work as equals in Australia had also been addressed significantly by Gough Whitlam.”

Watch her touching and informed speech below:

Cate recently gave an inspiring speech while accepting an honorary doctorate degree at Macquarie University in Sydney. Watch the video below!

“The arts are what we stay alive for, what we work for all week, what we dream about, what connects us and indeed, what some will say makes us human. Within this broad church is housed a myriad of professions — professions which some of you will participate in, help change, shape and evolve and I’d like to say today that it is the arts that have always been the driver of innovation and exploration,” Cate shared.

She added, “A culture that supports change, adaptation and experimentation is the only way that a scientist can find the mental space to explore and innovate. So remember when someone asks: ‘what the hell can you do with an arts degree?’, ask them ‘what can the world do without one?”
