Cate Blanchett talks about director Todd Field writing the film Tár just for her


Cate Blanchett has been promoting her new film Tár which is up for many awards this year.

On Monday the beauty looked stunning on the cover of one of W Magazine’s Best Performances issue covers. In the interview, the actress, 53, rocked a chic black dress and a messy blonde bob as she spoke about Tár.

After the release last year, she was rumored to be landing her second Oscar award for Best Actress as her performance portraying Lydia Tár – a brilliant composer and conductor in the psychological thriller drama.

On the cover, the two-time Academy Award-winning star donned a strapless black dress with a structured skirt that dramatically emphasized her hips.

Another photo from the editorial shoot showed her wearing a pair of black opaque tights.

In the shot, she appeared to be in the middle of nonchalantly putting on a unique pair of shoes – seemingly symbolic of her ability to portray an uncommon character wholly and exceptionally.

She sported a light makeup look and showed off her iconic blonde tresses in a short bob, heavily parted to the side.

One of her latest projects – the film Tár – was written and directed by Todd Field, 58,  and was his first film in 16 years.

She told W on the filmmaker writing the script just for her, ‘Todd sent me this script, and I inhaled it.’

‘He wrote it at the beginning of the pandemic,’ she said. ‘Todd was a musician first, so there was a musical quality to the script, and not just because it’s set in the classical music world.’

Then, the star – who won the coveted Best Actress award at the Venice Film Festival for her performance in the film – touches on the moral of the story.

‘It could just as easily have been about an architect or a painter or a writer – anyone in a position of top institutional power, and the way that being in that position gets in the way of their sense of self and ability to relate to people,’ she said.

Later, she looks to be praised and recognized in the art world.

‘We respect and understand it in sports people,’ she said. 

‘But if you talk about it in more ephemeral art forms, everyone’s got a different version of what’s good or excellent.’

She added: ‘In a creative job, you have to be quite brutal with yourself and disciplined.’

The artistry: She said, 'Todd was a musician first, so there was a musical quality to the script, and not just because it's set in the classical music world'

She continued, ‘And when, like a conductor, your instrument is a human instrument, how do you maintain that sense of rigor and brutality?

‘It’s a complicated thing, balancing being a musician, an artist, and also being a human,’ she said.

‘I’m trying to learn how to be a human.’

Tár received its wide release in theaters in October of last year.
