Twilight Star, Kristen Stewart recently released a public apology to Rob Pattinson after Papparazzi photos surfaced of Kristen kissing her “Snowhite and the Huntsman” Director, Rupert Sanders (Married 7 years to wife Liberty Ross with 2 Children.) Stewart should perhaps take a lesson or two from Oscar Winning, Aussie Actress Cate Blanchett who was celebrating at The London Hotel in midtown with her “Uncle Vanya” cast mates including; John Bell, Sandy Gore, Hayley McElhinney, Anthony Phelan, Richard Roxburgh, Andrew Tighe
Jacki Weaver, Hugo Weaving post show earlier this week. Blanchett revealed how she manages to stay out of the limelight and keep her private life private, “There’s a happy understanding that I am quite dull. I am sorry. I am prepared to keep that misconception alive. I am dull. Very, very dull.” Said, Blanchett.
The Oscar winning actress was picture perfect donning a Givenchy cocktail dress as she shared how Anton Chekhov’s and Andrew Upton’s adapted rendition of the play “Uncle Vanya” made it to The Lincoln Center Festival, “Andrew Upton and I run the Sydney Theatre Company where the production originated and part of our desire when we came to the company was to get the work out over seas because the ensemble cast is extraordinary. I mean from the largest role down to the smallest role. And having worked with Tamás Ascher,the Hungarian director who led us all, it is quite a special production. And seeing the response in Washington we were really delighted when the Lincoln Center Festival invited us to come.”
Blanchett and her husband Andrew Upton keep their family together by raising their three boys on the road, “Well theater is a crazy circus life! The greatest place for children is backstage. I mean that’s what we do at night, under lights we play. And so it’s a great environment for children. Obviously you want them to be stable and happy but, its such a playful world so it’s a great place for them to be. Uncle Vanya has a limited run in NYC so, Cate and family are already gearing up for her next big project The Hobbit, a prequel to “The Lord of The Rings: An Unexpected Journey” which hits theaters December 14, 2012.
Blanchett said it was glorious making the first film of the trilogy in Wellington (New Zealand), “I was just delighted because when my memory of The Hobbit is that Galadriel is only mentioned glancingly so that fact that Peter (Jackson) wrote her in, I was absolutely thrilled and most of my stuff it was with Hugo Weaving who is in the production of “Uncle Vanya” who is a God against men and (Ian) McKellen who is oh look, if only he was straight!” Tune into IN THE MIXX on WVVH-TV this Saturday 11am and 10pm to see Blanchett’s complete exclusive interview plus 30 Rock star, Grizz and a live performance with Singer/Songwriter Jared Evan.
