Blanchett wants to be ‘half as intelligent’ as Elizabeth INovember 14th, 2007 - 2:53 am ICT by admin
“She was a remarkable woman,” Daily Express quoted her, as saying.
“They were crazy enough to let me do it again. It’s a fantastic role. Am I the same as her? I wish I was half as intelligent,” she said.
The yet to be released movie has already made Blanchett a top contender for an Oscar for her role as the royal.
Blanchett is also talking about putting her royal robes back on for a third time to play the 16th century monarch Elizabeth I.
“There are endless possibilities with Elizabeth … And I think there will be a lot more Elizabeth (films) because she’s endlessly fascinating”, she said. (ANI)
