Cate Blanchett Has Had Many Intimate Relationship With Women
What’s a lil lovin’ between ladies? Who knew Cate Blanchett was a seafood lover?
Via Page Six reports:
Australian actress Cate Blanchett has revealed she’s had “many” intimate relationships with women in the past.
The 45-year-old megastar dropped the bombshell while promoting her latest film project, “Carol,” in which she plays a bisexual woman.
During an interview with Variety magazine, Blanchett was asked whether this was her “first turn as a lesbian” when she gave interviewer Ramin Setoodeh a coy smile.
“On film, or in real life?” she replied.
Clearly not expecting the candid revelation, Setoodeh pressed the “Elizabeth” star for more information, asking if she’d had relationships with women.
Blanchett simply replied: “Yes. Many times.” She declined to elaborate.
She was, however, happy to discuss her character in the film, which is based on the 1952 novel “The Price of Salt.”
In the piece, Setoodeh notes that Blanchett “doesn’t necessarily rely on labels for sexual orientation” and never considered which one might apply to the character.
“I never thought about it,” she said of Carol, who never comes out as a lesbian. “I don’t think Carol thought about it.”
In preparing for the role, Blanchett said, she read numerous banned erotic “girl-on-girl” books from the era.
“Carol” will make its world premiere next week at the Cannes Film Festival.
Sounds like Cate may have gotten a lil turned out on the set of this one. Which ladies do you think may have tasted that?
