Cate Blanchett talks about the role she really wants

HollywoodNews.com: Cate Blanchett has played both Bob Dylan and Queen Elizabeth I, but there is still one role that she is hoping to tackle in the near future.
Blanchett recently revealed to ‘Harper’s Bazaar UK’ that she’d love to one day play the role of a villain in a James Bond film, states Hollyscoop. “Oh God! Yes! I’d be there in a heartbeat. I love Lotta Lenya [Ross Klebb in 1963’s From Russia with Love]. She had a club foot and a limp. I’m not a purist in that way,” Blanchett commented.
But, she is also looking to take on a role behind the camera: “There is a film I’d love to direct, but I just don’t know if I’ve got the patience.”

Jennifer Aniston’s style icons

By Molly Sullivan
HollywoodNews.com: Jennifer Aniston may be a style role model to many women out there, but she has a few women who she looks to for fashion inspiration and admiration.
When Aniston is looking for something to inspire her in her own look, she admits that she looks to Cameron Diaz and Cate Blanchett, reports Stuff in New Zealand. Her own outfits often reflect Diaz’s more laid-back look with the classic elegance that Blanchett often exhibits.
Aniston commented about Diaz: “I think she’s gorgeous and has a lot of style.” While she appreciates how “interesting and unique” Blanchett appears while on the red carpet.

Cate Blanchett, Eric Bana sign up for Wright’s ‘Hanna’

BY SEAN O’CONNELL
While promoting last year’s “The Soloist,” director Joe Wright (“Pride & Prejudice”) told reporters he planned to adapt the novel “Indian Summer,” about the final days of Britain’s colonial rule in India. Apparently that summer vacation is on hold.
Focus Features announced that Wright’s next project will be the adventure thriller “Hanna.” Filming begins next week in Europe. The project reunites Wright with “Atonement” star, and Academy Award nominee, Saoirse Ronan. Joining her will be Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett and Eric Bana.
Hanna (Ronan) is a teenage girl who has the strength, the stamina, and the smarts of a solider. These come from being raised by her father (Bana), an ex-CIA man, in the wilds of Sweden. Living a life unlike any other teenager, her upbringing and training have been one and the same, all geared to making her the perfect assassin.
The turning point in Hanna’s adolescence is a sharp one. She’s sent into the world by her father on a mission, journeying stealthily across Europe while eluding agents dispatched after her by a ruthless intelligence operative with secrets of her own (Blanchett).
It sounds a bit like “Nancy Drew” mixed with “Spy Kids” and “Mission: Impossible.” But Wright is a subtle and strong filmmaker, and the cast should elevate any material.
James Schamus, Focus Features CEO, said, “We’re so pleased to reunite with Saoirse and Joe for Hanna – Focus’ biggest production yet. With Saoirse taking on such a demanding role opposite Cate and Eric, this movie will be not only breathlessly exciting but also emotionally affecting.”
