Cate Blanchett's quotes

  • If you know you are going to fail, then fail gloriously!
  • [When asked what colour her hair is] Look, it's one of the great mysteries of the world, I cannot answer that question. I think I'm vaguely blonde. To be perfectly frank, I don't know.
  • [When asked if she has ever appeared in Neighbours (1985)] Absolutely not. I'm an actress.
  • If I had my way, if I was lucky enough, if I could be on the brink my entire life - that great sense of expectation and excitement without the disappointment - that would be the perfect state.
  • It's part of my job. You can't play Veronica Guerin [puts on heavy Strine] sounding like this. It just wouldn't wash. But what I find fascinating about doing an accent - unless it's a farce - is that it's not slapped on. [on doing many accents]
  • I'm one of those strange beasts who really likes a corset.
  • There's this sense that of course you want to be famous. When you're a performer, of course you want an audience, but it's very, very different from courting fame.
  • [on her first Oscar loss, in 1999] Sometimes I think it's so good not to win those things. And, anyway, who wants to peak when they're 28?
  • Of course one worries about getting older--we're all fearful of death, let's not kid ourselves. I'm simply not panicking as my laugh lines grow deeper. Who wants a face with no history, no sense of humor?
  • [In 2012, on collaborating with husband Andrew Upton]: We've had some doozies and we've had some stinkers. No one sets out to have a stinker.
  • [I have] this strange, probably unachievable fantasy about performing in German in Berlin. [But] I don't speak German.
  • I love Brighton. We lived in Lewes Crescent and it was the genesis of the rabbit hole in Alice in Wonderland; so magical.
  • No one is ever who they purport to be. And I suppose I'm most interested in the gap between who we project socially and who we really are.
  • I can be a real pessimist. You know that when you win an Oscar and you walk offstage and your first thought is: "Oh God, I've peaked."
  • Working with Woody [Allen] is like an emotional strip club without the cash.
  • For me it felt less about the period and more about the gaze. If the cigarette was held in a certain way and perceived by the camera in a certain way, it was because it was viewed through the prism of someone's desire, rather than the prism of the period.
  • [on working with Sally Hawkins on Blue Jasmine (2013):] Sally's got the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. I clung to her like a life raft.
  • Perhaps in another life, if Wizards and Elves could procreate...
