Cate Blanchett Reacts to 'Carol' Uproar: 'Who Cares If I Had Lesbian Relationships or Not?'

Cate Blanchett transforms into Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s Little Prince on the cover of W magazine’s December/January issue.

Here’s what the 46-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On the uproar over Carol‘s subject matter: “Art is supposed to be a provocation, not an education. In 2015, the point should be: Who cares if I had lesbian relationships or not? Call me old-fashioned, but I’ve always thought that my job as an actor was to raise and expand the audience’s sense of the universe.”

On the role of fashion in her films: “I love working with the costume designers on movies. You can visually represent the character through a dress or a bag or shoes. In Blue Jasmine, clothes illustrated my character’s demise. If I pair a Birkin bag with a knockoff sweater from Wal-Mart that looks like Chanel, I can subtly reveal the character, and I don’t have to play that emotions.”

On showing her wealth in Carol: “The mink was old and it kept falling apart. Between takes, Sandy Powell, the costume designer, would sew it back together by hand. I considered changing coats, but when you find the right thing, you know immediately: That coat was the one to tell Carol’s story. It was perfect.”

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.”
