With the likes of Sandra Bullock expressing excitement over complex female roles, Cate Blanchett shuts them down by pointing out that in this day and age, such roles should no longer be a surprise.

Cate recently sat down with the press to give this statement at the BFI London Film Festival for her latest film, Caroline.

The 46-year-old pointed out that she finds herself in the same conversation over and over again, that it’s “somehow remarkable” that such roles exist. Cate then suggests that it’s time to move on from the idea.

One thing that’s not quite commendable here, however, is Cate’s outfit. Despite dazzling consistently in red carpets, we have to say that this look isn’t one of our favorites.
