Whether smudging her mascara just so or leaving her forehead slightly shiny, Cate Blanchett uses cosmetic signals to help craft her on-screen personae: “We really fine-tune those details,” Blanchett says. “The audience takes a cue from the visual before the characters even open their mouths.” Here, the two-time Oscar winner (and longtime ambassador for SK-II skin care) gives us a master class on the art of transformation.

How much does a character’s hair and makeup affect the psychology behind your performance?

It matters greatly. Personally, I prefer to play against the look: If a character appears particularly unhinged, with makeup running down her face, I like to play her as if she has it together. I think that juxtaposition makes it so much more interesting.

Have you ever played a character whose beauty habits made you uncomfortable with your own reflection?

I just completed this movie, Carol, in which I had to pluck my eyebrows nearly every day to achieve that very stern look. I just hated it. I much prefer a natural approach to beauty. You know, Coco Chanel always said to take one thing off before you leave the house, and I think that also applies to makeup.

Do you ever do your own makeup?

I’ve just come off of a three-week run of The Maids, where the backstage makeup is pretty bare-bones. It’s just you and the mirror. While I much prefer when a professional does it, I’m getting better at it—even liquid liner. After a run of several night events, you begin to appreciate the solitude and the quiet backstage. And then, of course, a healthy sweep of jet-black mascara. I’ve also taken to lining my eyes in white pencil to make them look instantly brighter and bigger. That’s something I’ve learned from the pros.

At the Emmys last year, a lot of people were talking about how the age ceiling has been shattered for women in Hollywood. What does that mean to you? Why is that always a topic of conversation?

Look at the women on Orange Is the New Black, American Horror Story, or The Good Wife. People really do want to see women doing dark, complicated, and crazy shit! Those shows have a myriad of male viewers because the writing is simply good. It’s not as if women just stop watching TV after they turn 40. I think what happened is that the women finally started to do something about it; they began writing and producing.

So much of beauty is predicated on what our mothers did. What was something you inherited from yours?

It does, doesn’t it? My mom always used Oil of Olay. She was always very careful not to expose herself to the sun and was always wearing a hat. My sister and I are also rather pale, you know? I think my generation is much more careful about not going into the sun. Some of my friends’ mums were total sun bunnies.

Who’s the most beautiful woman you’ve ever seen up close?

Michelle Williams—she just has this light about her. Jessica Chastain, too, in that same way that she’s sort of lit from within. And Norwegian director Liv Ullmann. Just beautiful.

PREPARATIONS for the 4th annual AACTA awards are well underway, with actress Cate Blanchett flying into Sydney to begin rehearsals.

Hollywood’s leading lady will co-host the awards night alongside The Sapphires actress, Deborah Mailman later this month.

The pair, who hadn’t seen each other for a while, spent a few minutes catching up, before shooting the video opener for the night’s broadcast.

“It’s an honour to host the 4th AACTA Awards with Deb, a shining light of Australian film and television,” Blanchett said.

“The AACTAs celebrate our nation’s creativity and our talents as storytellers, and I’m proud to be part of this national celebration.”

The AACTA Awards will be held at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on January 29 and will be broadcast on Network 10.

Based on the ten short stories by Tim Winton, this multi-threaded film starts with the relationship between a young woman living in a trailer park with her abusive husband, and spreads out from there. Cate Blanchett is Gail Lang in the segment “Reunion“.

The official synopsis:

Ten stories interweave in their respective narratives, creating an intriguing and twisting central plot-line that often centres around the enigmatic members of the Lang family, each consumed by their shared pasts.

The Turning explores the impact of past on present, how the seemingly random incidents that change and shape us can never be escaped or let go of. All of the stories are bound together by recurring themes; the passing of time, regret, addiction and obsession.

Watch the trailer below!

The Turning premiered at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 3rd, 2013 and was screened in the Berlinale Special Galas section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. Main Street Films has the U.S. rights, but not much has been heard about a release date.

After almost two years of silence we have a news on this project!

Mark Romanek is set to direct the David Mamet-penned thriller Blackbird. The project, which Mamet himself was thought to be directing, will now see in-demand director Romanek at the helm. The film follows the grieving granddaughter of a famous special effects artist in Hollywood who discovers dangerous conspiracy secrets from her grandfather’s past that will put her and her autistic son’s life in danger. Scott Rudin has come on board to produce for his shingle, Scott Rudin Productions, with Eli Bush and Lila Yacoub also producing. Cate Blanchett will star in the leading role as Janet.

Quebec-born director Dean DeBlois didn’t expect to hear, “How To Train Your Dragon 2” when the envelope was finally opened for the best animated feature category at the 72nd Annual Golden Globes on Sunday night.

“I was genuinely shocked when I heard those words, and it was a real high,” said DeBlois, on the phone from Los Angeles Monday morning.

“Every award pundit had TheLEGO Movie winning.”

The film also features the vocal talents of Gerard Butler, America Ferrera and Cate Blanchett.

With Cate Blanchett, this was her first time [doing animation], and she’s methodical about wanting to know every aspect of what the character is thinking, so it really became a discussion every time,” said DeBlois.

DeBlois is already hard at work on How to Train Your Dragon 3, which he says should be out in June of 2017.
