Cate Blanchett clears schedule to grieve

Feb 6 2014, 2:23pm CST | by

Cate Blanchett cleared her schedule following the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman.

The 'Blue Jasmine' star, who was spotted visiting the late actor's ex-partner, Mimi O'Donnell, with toys for their three children, Cooper, 10, Tallulah, seven, and Willa, five, at their home in New York City on Monday (02.03.14), canceled a string of appearances to take a few days off to grieve for her close friend.

A spokesperson for the 44-year-old Australian actress told The Hollywood Reporter that her team made the decision to postpone interviews on 'Good Morning America' and 'Live! With Kelly and Michael' to promote her new film, 'The Monuments Men,' on Wednesday (02.05.14) "to allow Cate the time and privacy to grieve the loss of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman."

The Oscar-nominee formed a close friendship with the 46-year-old actor, who was found dead in his apartment from an apparent heroin overdose on Sunday (02.02.14), while starring alongside him in 'The Talented Mr. Ripley' in 1999.

The actress, who is expected to attend the official Oscar nominees luncheon in Beverly Hills on Monday (02.10.14), has had a stressful few days as she was also called out in Dylan Farrow's open letter on Saturday (02.01.14), in which the 28 year old accused her father, Woody Allen, of sexually abusing her at the age of seven.

Challenging some of the stars of her father's films for working with him, Dylan wrote: "What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett?"

The 'Lord of the Rings' star attempted to distance herself from the scandal over the weekend and said: "It's obviously been a long and painful situation for the family. I hope they find some resolution and peace."

Cate Blanchett’s favorite food is ‘cheese & Vegemite on toast’: disgusting?

Jul 22 2014 6:25am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I’m not sure what Cate Blanchett is promoting in this new Marie Claire interview. She doesn’t have a film coming out in the immediate future, although she will have some new releases in the fall/winter. Perhaps she’s promoting her endorsement deal with Armani? That could be it. That’s the new thing for celebrities – they promote their modeling contracts like they promote their films. The pay is probably about the s ...

30 (5) actors under 30 who matter

Jul 17 2014 10:39pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

There are always those actors who rise above early on. Even when a movie implodes around them, like "Another Happy Day" did around Ezra Miller, there is something in the performance that makes them stand out, that lingers long after. The way Miller handled the nervous energy of a teen on a precipitous emotional edge, or the sadness in Garrett Hedlund's angsty singer in "Country Strong." They not only make an imprint in the role but they also tantalize about what they mi ...

In April, we told you that a judge dismissed media personality B. Scott’s gender discrimination lawsuit against BET Networks.

First Impressions of Tim Burton’s ‘Big Eyes’ With Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz

Jun 16 2014 1:32pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

With less-than-inspired directorial choices the past decade or so, we’ve been waiting for Tim Burton to get back to more inventive territory. Reteaming with Ed Wood writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, his forthcoming feature Big Eyes looks to be that answer. The drama, which is set to debut this December, follows Christoph Waltz and Amy Adams taking the lead roles of Walter and Margaret Keane, a couple who achieved international rec ...

The film devotes much of its sweet, sensitive middle act to introducing her, and building her up into a complicated, nuanced character. She’s mysterious and formidable, capable of taking Hiccup and his dragon partner Toothle ...
