Cate Blanchett: ‘It’s hard to get paid as an actress’

Cate Blanchett, the Academy Award-winning actress, has spoken out about the difficulties faced by female performers when it comes to payment. Speaking at the Kering Women in Motion event at the Cannes Film Festival, Blanchett expressed her frustration that discussions around film projects are not always as “transparent” as other aspects of the production process.

Blanchett, who has three sons and a daughter with her producer husband Andrew Upton, also discussed the lack of female representation in film sets. She commented that “I realize that I am the only woman in the cast there are 62 men and yes I am the only woman. This proportion is bad, it is really disproportionate.”

The actress went on to say that she would look forward to the day when it is no longer necessary to highlight issues around women in film. Despite these challenges, Blanchett and her partner Coco Francini, who run the production company Dirty Films, are making progress in improving diversity on their own projects.

As Variety reports, Blanchett and Francini have implemented a diversity mandate for all their work, ensuring that women and people of color are interviewed for their productions. While progress is being made, Blanchett acknowledges that the industry still has a long way to go in terms of representing a wider range of voices and experiences.
