At some point, it will be enough! Cate Blanchett (53) is one of Australia’s most successful international stars. This year, the audience’s favorite has been nominated for an Oscar with the film “Tár”. Cate previously won the award for the 2004 film Aviator and 2014 for Blue Jasmine. The actress is also known as Galadriel from The Lord of the Rings and she also appeared in Thor. Now Cate wants to slow down a bit and is considering putting acting on hold for the time being!
“I can’t stop thinking about quitting!”, the actress confessed in an interview with Vanity Fair. “It’s not occasional – it’s continuous,” she further elaborated on feelings about early retirement. She would even think about it weekly, sometimes daily. “It’s like a love affair, isn’t it?” she compared, adding, “You fall in love more and less and you have to be seduced into it over and over again.”
As a reason for her reflections, she stated that her leading role in “Tár” was so intense that she still feels the reverberations of it. Cate explained: “I’m like a lot of viewers, I need time to process that.” She came to the conclusion that it was now time to “take it easy”.
