Cate Blanchett Denies Admitting To A Reporter That She Had Lesbian Relationship
Cate Blanchett, has now denied admitting to a Variety reporter that she had experience of lesbian relationship.
Speaking to the press on Sunday ahead of the premiere, The ‘Cinderella’ star found herself forced to deny that she had had any gay experiences herself.
“Have I had sexual relations with women? The answer is no,” Blanchett told reporters at a media conference.
The actress said speculation about possible gay episodes had sprung from an interview she had given to Variety.
The publication had reported that it asked Blanchett whether she’d had “past relationships with women” and got the response: “Yes. Many times.”
The 46-year-old Australian actress added that whatever her choice may be, it doesn’t matter as in today’s world no one actually cares and everyone is same.
Blanchett, whose character falls in love with a younger department store clerk woman in the movie, said that it was the first sort of lesbian story that had a “happy ending”.
Blanchett added that the part of the interview where she had stated she had had no “sexual relations with women” had been edited out of the article.
However, Variety have subsequently stated that they stand by the original article.
