Cate Blanchett says she was misquoted in a recent magazine interview regarding her past relationships. The actress has denied having sexual relationships with women in the past.
Blanchett's recent comments came at the Cannes premiere of her film “Carol,” which is about a lesbian affair. In the recent interview with Variety magazine, the 45-year-old was quoted as saying that she had “many” lesbian relationships. However, the actress says she was not accurately quoted.
“From memory, the conversation ran: ‘Have you had relationships with women?’ And I said: ‘Yes, many times. Do you mean have I had sexual relationships with women? Then the answer is no.’ But that obviously didn’t make it,” Blanchett said at a Cannes news conference, according to The Guardian. Blanchett's comments drew laughter from attendees of the news conference. The actress then said that in today's world “no one cares” if a person has same-sex relationships or not.
In “Carol,” Blanchett's character falls in love with a very young woman played by Rooney Mara. The movie is based in the 1950's New York and is expected to be the favorite film at the Cannes Film Festival.
According to the Independent, Blanchett “is striking in an impressive lesbian melodrama,” while Screen Daily's Tim Grierson called the film “stately, evocative, confident filmmaking, the only reservation being that it's also a bit chilly." It is scheduled to be released in the U.S. on Dec. 18.
