I didn’t even know this movie was happening until about five minutes ago, but now that I do know, I’m happy about it. Even though the story of Cinderella has been made into a movie several times already (who could forget the Rodgers and Hammerstein version with Brandy and Whitney Houston?), I can’t help but get a wee bit excited about Disney’s upcoming, live-action version, starring Lily James, Richard Madden and Cate Blanchett. In life, there’s always room for fairy tales. Check out the trailer and let us know if you’ll be seeing it in theaters come March 2015!
Cate Blanchett seems to have it all together. While we were hoping the big personal secret she’d reveal this weekend would be the key to her perfect skin, she instead descended to Earth to reveal the secret to a happy marriage: Sharing an email address. Read more on The Gloss…
“I mean, it’s obviously been a long and painful situation for the family, and I hope they find some sort of resolution and peace.”
Last night, the Santa Barbara Film Festival awarded Cate Blanchett the Outstanding Performer Of The Year Award for her role in Woody Allen’s “Blue Jasmine.” As she made her way into the after party, Hollywood Elsewhere columnist Jeffrey Wells asked Blanchett to comment on Dylan Farrow’s first person account of the sexual abuse she says she suffered at the hands of Woody Allen when she was a child. Blanchett, of course, was one of a number of actors who were specifically called out in Farrow’s heartbreaking piece. “What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett?” she wrote. “Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone?” Blanchett’s annoyingly careful response unfortunately suggests to me that she’s going to continue to look the other way.
As for Allen? His publicist released the following statement: Keep reading »
Watch your back, Jennifer Lawrence, because Cate Blanchett is stealing your red carpet game! In an interview at on the SAG Awards red carpet with Guiliana Rancic for E!, Cate abruptly stopped the interview as the “Glam Cam” slowly panned up her gown and stooped to the ground to ask, “Do you do that to the guys?” (My guess is probably not.) Later in the evening, Cate provided her first-best GIF-able moment of the night when she gave her SAG statuette a handjob. Keep it up, Cate! You’re making these silly red carpets so much more watchable. [PolicyMic]
This morning, the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards were announced. For the most part, the nominees were expected, and there were few noticeable snubs — though I am still steaming that James Franco in “Spring Breakers” has been all but overlooked this awards season. Check out the full list of nominees after the jump! (And, because I HAVE AN OPINION, DAMMIT, my picks for who I think should win in the top categories are in bold.) Keep reading »
“Blue Jasmine” was incredible, and Cate Blanchett is a dream, and I would never, not in a million years, be caught dead saying a cross word about her, and I love and embrace this odd spiderweb dress — but GODDAMN if the weird, vague, is it really there or am I imagining this face on the right side hasn’t been scaring the shit out of me all day. SO FRIGGIN’ CREEPY. [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
