Cate Blanchett graces the cover of T: The New York Times Style Magazine, and though it is the fall fashion issue the article doesn’t begin on a glamorous runway.
Instead, the interview begins with Blanchett and writer Christine Smallwood climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The 46-year-old actress, who is currently starring in her husband’s (Andrew Upton) adaptation of Anton Chekhov’s The Present at the Sydney Theatre Company, isn’t afraid of heights. She drove her kids to the edge of the active volcano Mount Yasur, which is located on the island of Tanna.
“It was fantastic to be able to say, I’m deciding to do this,” says Blanchett. “I’m deciding the level of safety for my children without someone telling me what to do.”
To read about Blanchett’s work in director Todd Haynes’ (she worked with him in the Bob Dylan film I’m Not There) upcoming film Gloria as well as her work with the Sydney Theatre Company (her husband will be running the company through the end of this year), check out the following New York Times T magazine link.
The fall issue also features a great post on things to see in Los Angeles from five distinguished figures in their respective industry (Grizzly Bear singer Ed Drosteis among them). Check out the T City Guides: Los Angeles over at this link.
