“It’s time to stop,” said the 50-year-old actress, the star of the film “Where’d You Go, Bernadette,” directed by Richard Linklater, which was released on August 16.
She continued: “I’m sure that audiences around the world when they see this movie, will think, ‘Yes, no doubt, it needs to stop.’ I apologize in advance. ”
Blanchett plays the role of Bernadette Fox in the adaptation of Mary Semple’s eponymous novel, which was executive produced. Fox is an architect in Seattle, has a happy family until her daughter disappears.
The main character goes through an existential and artistic crisis, as the American publication points out. The same thing seems to happen in Blanchett’s case. Asked if he feels the same every time a movie is about to be released, Blanchett said that this is always the case.
He goes on to say that “very interesting people, like Richard Linklater and Maria Semple, ask me if I want to work with them and they answer,” I sure do “.
The actress has collaborated with filmmakers such as Martin Scorsese (“The Aviator”), Woody Allen (“Blue Jasmine”), Todd Haynes (“Carol”) and Terrence Malick (“Knights of Cups”).
This is not the first time she says she is considering retiring. In an interview with Julia Roberts for Interview Magazine, Blanchett talked about it. “Maybe it’s time to stop. I wonder why I don’t dedicate myself to raising chickens or reading Proust. All these books are on the shelf, bought and still unread. Why do I keep bothering to make movies? ”.
She thought that, as we grow older, “playing becomes increasingly humiliating.” “When I was young, I was wondering why the older actors I admired talked non-stop about retirement. Now I realize that what they wanted was to keep in touch with the last bits of mental balance. ”
