;Cate for A R M A N I::

;Cate's quotes::

“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?"

“I used to wear no makeup at all but red lips. I really liked it, that sort of old-Hollywood look. Not that I look at all old-Hollywood.”

"I just don’t see myself as the heroine in my own narrative."

“I’m not focused on what other people think of me. Some people get you and some people don’t, and to spend your life trying to make people understand how deep and complex and varied you are - I think that way lies madness.”


x
"You know that eastern idea of perfection? The idea that something can be truly perfect only if there’s an imperfection in it. We all have that, it’s what makes us human. And it doesn’t matter if you’re playing Elizabeth I or Bob Dylan or Mary Mapes or Carol. You’ve got to find as many warts as you can."

;The Others quotes::

• David Fincher
"I always say everyone was lucky enough to be in a Cate Blanchett movie." Fincher had Blanchett on his mind to play Daisy, Benjamin’s love interest, since catching her performance in “Elizabeth”. “I remember going to the Sunset 5 and just thinking, ‘Who is that? My goodness,’” he recalls. “You just don’t see people who have that kind of power and ability every day of the week.”
• Giorgio Armani
"Working with Cate Blanchett, on and off the screen, has always been a highlight for me. She embodies the perfect combination of consummate actor and world-class fashion icon".
• Todd Haynes
"When Cate Blanchett starts directing, it's over for all of us".
• Brad Pitt
''Cate Blanchett is mesmerizing. I don't know why. It's beyond my understanding. Why we all want to work with her is she elevates the rest of us. She's just got some ethereal grace and elegance that's beyond me, and an acute understanding of human nature. She's just exquisite. She's otherworldly.''


x
Eva Green, mentioning that Cate is her idol
"She's very subtle, yet boiling away inside. And I admire the fact that she's very private. You need to have that mystery."
• Rachel Weisz
"I love Cate Blanchett. I think she's phenomenal, so stylish and a really good actress. There's probably a young female doctor or teacher out there that'd be inspiring, but in terms of people who're well-known it'd have to be Cate."

I'd be interested to see her do a role where they 'ugly' her up, sort of like how they did for Charlize Theron in "Monster", amazing film that was!
