images-1Variety magazine recently interviewed Australian actress Cate Blanchett who is married to theatre director Andrew Upton for the past fifteen years.  Cate, a two-time Oscar winner is planning to star in the role of a bi-sexual woman in the movie “Carol.”

During the interview, Cate was asked whether it was her ‘first turn as a lesbian?”

‘On film – or in real life?’ she asked coyly.

Pressed about whether she had had past relationships with women, she reponded: ‘Yes. Many times,’ but did not elaborate.

Labels are Not NecessaryUnknown-2

Like Carol, who never comes out, ‘Blanchett doesn’t necessarily rely on labels for sexual orientation,’ the magazine notes.

‘I never thought about it,’ she said of how she envisioned the character.

‘I don’t think Carol thought about it.’

The actress prepared for the role by reading banned erotic novels.

‘I read a lot of girl-on-girl books from the period,’ she said.

Cate the Talented

A six-time Oscar nominee, she has also received nominations for  Notes on a Scandal (2006), Elizabeth: the Golden Age (2007) and I’m NOt There  (2007). Blanchett’s other notable films include The Talented Mr. Ripley (1999), The Lord of the Rings trilogy  (2001–03) and The Hobbit trilogy  (2012–14) Little Fish (2005), Babel (2006), The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008), How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014), and Cinderella (2015).  Cate is the mother of four children.

Last words by paula

A woman with a woman is– a woman with a woman.  When we kiss or touch, there is no thought about “Am I touching a lesbian or a bi-sexual woman.”  However, some lesbians do not want to date bi-sexuals for a variety of reasons . The bottom line is to love and be loved in this lifetime.
