Blanchett blasts 'rubbish' of female stereotypes and red carpet rudeness

Blanchett blasts 'rubbish' of female stereotypes and red carpet rudeness Women are constantly judged for their parenting skills based on stereotypes that are "complete rubbish", Cate Blanchett has said, as the actress argued that men are never asked how they balance work and fatherhood.

Blanchett said there was a whole extra "raft of judgment" that came with playing a mother on screen, with an expectation that all women fall into "archetypes".

Blanchett has three sons with her husband Andrew Upton, a playwright and director: Dashiel (12), Roman, (10) and Ignatius (6).

She has won three Bafta awards, three Golden Globes and two Oscars, for her roles in 'The Aviator' and 'Blue Jasmine'.

Speaking at the Cannes Film Festival, where her latest film, 'How to Train Your Dragon 2' was unveiled, she criticised the "complete rubbish" of female stereotypes and hit out at red-carpet rudeness.

In the animated film by DreamWorks, she provides the voice of a mother who is reunited with her heroic son after abandoning him in his early years.

Appearing at a press conference, she disclosed her amusement and frustration at the reaction to the film, which she said frequently involved being asked about her own family life.

"When anyone plays a mother on film, there is a whole raft of judgment in that a mother is a particular archetype or that every mother is the same," she said. "That's complete rubbish.

"We did discuss a lot about that particular issue because, of course, there is a judgment on how women parent. The film actually deals with it really beautifully and deeply and emotionally."

"It's certainly a question that's never asked of men. The question is only ever directed towards of women. 'How do you balance? How do you have it all?'"...
