Cate Blanchett is the radiant cover girl for the New York Times’ T Magazine’s Summer Beauty & Fashion issue, photographed by Cass Bird and styled by Vanessa Traina.Â In “Vanishing Act” Cate was photographed at a Spanish-style white stucco house in Los Feliz â€” also known as Old Hollywood â€” that Cary Grant once lived in with Randolph Scott.
Inside Cate talks to Daphne Merkin about many things including her newest film “Hanna” the ruthless CIA agent as well as her much cherished role as co-artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company and her passion and involvement in the Australian Conservation Foundation.
I love Cate’s straight-forwardness, it’s such an Aussie trait and how much she loves to stay grounded in all things Australian (see my post on her support for the Youth Homeless Program).Â I love her honesty, she shares when asked whether she felt nervous about giving an award at the Oscars with a simple “No.”Â She admits to not enjoying exercise but spends a half hour on the elliptical trainer four days a week:Â “I don\’t enjoy it,” she says, “but I certainly have more energy.”
And I especially love this, when asked about what fame means to her:
“I\’m constantly humbled,” she says. “Just at the moment when you think, I\’ll call and get a table at this restaurant, they\’re always like, â€˜Who?\’ So whenever you try and pull that out, it never works. People are always saying they loved me in â€˜Titanic.\’ ”
