Actress Cate Blanchett will be among the stars taking part in the Barbican’s 30th anniversary celebrations next year.

The star will be appearing in the Botho Strauss play Gross und Klein in January next year while the actress Juliette Binoche will star in the French language piece Mademoiselle Julie in September.

According to the BBC, the Barbican said it’s ‘world-class events’ put it ‘at the heart of the London 2012 Festival’.

The events will take place as the world has its eyes on London for the 2012 Olympics.

Barbican managing director Sir Nicholas Kenyon said there would be ‘something for everyone’ with the events.

He said: “In 2012 London welcomes the world for the Olympic and Paralympic Games and the Barbican will be at the forefront of that international moment with an extraordinary range of great cultural experiences for all.”


HANNA is the latest film from Joe Wright, director of Pride and Prejudice.

The film, which is distinctly light on bonnets and heavy on the weaponry, will have its Australian premiere at the Sydney Film Festival on June 8.

Star Cate Blanchett will be walking the red carpet at the preview of the film, which also features Eric Bana and Saoirse Ronan, who plays the title character, a teenage girl trained by her father as an assassin.

If that sounds a little heavy, there are a wide range of other films on offer. This year’s festival features 161 films from 42 countries in 47 different languages, including 29 Australian productions.

The children’s program includes the Australian premiere of Kung Fu Panda 2, starring Jack Black, and Africa United, a movie about three Rwandan children hitchhiking to South Africa to watch the World Cup.

The rest of the program has been sorted into themes to make it easier for festival goers. Fire Me Up features action films and thrillers like Mike Takashi’s 13 Assassins, a tale of intrigue set in the twilight of Japan’s feudal era. Love Me offers meditations on love including Old Cats, about a woman hiding her senility from her daughter. Make Me Laugh includes Isabella Rossellini’s new documentary Animals Distract Me, while those looking for a fright should see the Freak Me Out films, which include foxy ladies fighting for the human race in Mutant Girls Squad.

Arts Minister George Souris said at the festival launch that a childhood spent watching Saturday matinees left him with an “indelible love of cinema” and that the festival was important to the state’s economic and artistic life.

“That the Sydney Film Festival and the arts generally are economic drivers and part of our tourism industry should be obvious by now,” he said.



New Owner

Hey everyone!  My name is Michelle and I’m the new owner of Cate Blanchett Fan.  Big thanks go to Eli for letting me take over.  I’ll be having some updates coming soon so keep checking back!

Today is a very special day for all of us, and obviously for our beloved Cate. Today it’s Cate’s birthday. From Cate Blanchett Fan we want to wish her ALL the best on her day, we hope she has an amazing time surrounded by those she loves.

The ‘Hanna’ actress and her husband, playwright Andrew Upton, believe being strict with sons Dashiell, nine, Roman, seven, and Ignatius, three, and teaching them boundaries is more important than being their friend.

She said: “I don’t enjoy being the bad cop but sometimes I have to be.

“My husband and I worry about our generation trying to be friends with their children rather than parents of their children. If you’re going to try and make your children like you, you’re in dangerous waters I think.”

However, although the 41-year-old star can be strict with her children she understands how important it is to listen to them and hopes they will feel able to talk to her as they grow older.

She explained in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: “I think I’m pretty loving, but what I do know is that you have to let them talk and you have to listen. I hope that when they’re 15, they’re still talking as freely to us as now.”

Cate always puts her children before her career and revealed that she almost turned down playing a CIA agent in ‘Hanna’ alongside Eric Bana and Saoirse Ronan because she worried she would be away from her family for too long – but eventually accepted the part when filming was reduced from eight weeks to 22 days.

She said: “Sometimes you have to say no to things, but in the end the right people make the film whether you’re part of it or not.”


Cate poses at the Romance Was Born catwalk show during their Spring/Summer 2011/12 collection launch at State Library Of New South Wales on May 1, 2011 in Sydney, Australia. She looks amazing, don’t you think.

This is a nice news, if you like Family Guy (as I do) you will be very excited.

She’s had some of the most dignified and acclaimed roles in the world, and now Cate Blanchett is going for a new gig: a guest starring role on “Family Guy.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Academy Award winning actress will pop in for an episode next spring on the hit Fox animated series.

No details yet on Blanchett’s character. The actress is currently filming “The Hobbit” in New Zealand.


Cate appears on T magazine , she did a wonderful shoot for the magazine which we have uploaded to our gallery, I don’t know you guys, but I LOVE this shoot so much…I might use it for the next layout :P

She may play a ruthless CIA agent in the new thriller Hanna, but that iciness is nowhere to be found in Cate Blanchett’s light-and-carefree fashion spread fin Sunday’s T magazine. In fact, though the Oscar winner stuns on the cover in sexy bed-head hair, a chic Dior dress, and elegant Neil Lane cameo earrings, it’s her big, inviting smile that steals the show.

Inside the magazine, the face of Sk-II—who was photographed by Cass Bird—displays a similar élan, laughing as she enjoys a drink in a flirty, embellished Dolce & Gabbana dress worn with Ralph Lauren Collection jeans and Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière shoes. She flashes yet another grin while modeling an über-glamorous, lacy Stella McCartney cap-sleeve dress with Giorgio Armani pants and Christian Louboutin shoes.

Both form-fitting ensembles highlight Blanchett’s enviable figure, which she attributes to four-times-a-week workouts on the elliptical trainer. “I don’t enjoy it,” she tells T, “but I certainly have more energy.”..

Great news about Hanna! Keep going on :)

Hanna, not Hop, topped the tepid North American box office on both Monday and Tuesday (April 11 and 12), according to Box Office Mojo.

Before Rio arrives next weekend to heat up domestic box-office revenues, Hanna will likely stay on top, as adult-oriented movies tend to hold up better on weekdays than kiddie fare. Directed by Joe Wright, Hanna stars Cate Blanchett, Saoirse Ronan, and Eric Bana.


Thanks to our sister site for the head up of this video where Cate talks about Hanna, The Hobbit and Hot Fuzz



Hey guys!!
I was thinking…would you like to have a forum here at Cate Blanchett Fan where you could chat with other fans and meet people from all over the world?? Let me know what you think, in order to do it or not.

The fashion designer outfits the actress in the stylish thriller.

Designer Giorgio Armani is no stranger to the big screen.

His impeccably tailored styles have already appeared in American Gigolo, Ocean’s Thirteen and The Dark Knight – and now they can be seen on Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett in the new movie Hanna (Focus Features).

In the film from director Joe Wright (2005’s Pride and Prejudice and 2007’s Atonement), Blanchett plays dark intelligence operative Marissa Wiegler who has secret ties to a teenage girl (Saoirse Ronan) with the skills of an assassin and her ex-CIA father (Eric Bana). “Joe’s vision of Marissa as the Wicked Witch of the story meant that her colors would be red [for her hair] and green [in her attire],” says head costume designer Lucie Bates, who worked closely with Armani.

Armani turned out an elegant, army green pencil-skirt suit and a ladylike emerald-hued cashmere coat for Blanchett’s character.

“Working with Cate has always been a highlight for me,” says Armani, who often dresses the actress in one-of-a-kind Armani Privé gowns for the red carpet. “She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon.”


Lets see if you agree with this article. Don’y hesitate and post your thoughts

Whether she’s front-and-center as the star of a film or playing a juicy supporting part, Cate Blanchett is always fascinating to watch, with her astounding versatility and transfixing, chameleon-like features.

This week, Blanchett plays a villainous CIA operative on the hunt for a teenage killing machine in “Hanna.” The Australian actress works a Texas drawl that drips with menace, but she’s also quite adept at running in Prada heels. So we took on the daunting task of selecting five — and only five — of her best performances:
