Cate Blanchett Is Not Ashamed To Admit She’s Been With Women


Cate Blanchett has spoken out about her “many” past relationships with women while promoting her latest movie Carol, a love story between two women.

Based on Patricia Highsmith’s romance novel, The Price of Salt, Carol follows the main character as she begins a secret relationship with a much younger woman, played by Rooney Mara.

In an interview with Variety magazine ahead of the film’s premiere at Cannes Film Festival on 17 May, Blanchett was asked if playing the title role in Carol was her first turn as a lesbian.

‘’On film or in real life?’’, the charming actress replied.

When asked if she’s had off-screen relationships with other women in the past, Blanchett told the interviewer: “Yes. Many times.”

And there you have it. She opened up about her own sexuality and made a powerful statement about sexuality in general – in just three words.
