Cate Blanchett admits she’s much more realistic now

09 December 2010

The Foreign Correspondent Luncheon was held at Warf Theatre in Sydney last night with special guest actress Cate Blanchett, the artistic director of Sydney Theatre Company.

The actress said she was "incredibly hopeful before Copenhagen" but now admits she's "much more realistic".

"I suppose in a nutshell there's an opportunity in climate change for re-assessment of our personal values but there's also an enormous - as there was after 9/11 - an enormous opportunity for leadership. Bit of a vacuum at the moment,".

Cate recently confirmed that she will reprise her role of Galadriel, the Lady of Lothlorien, in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit.
