Quote for Today: Cate Blanchett

It’s not just women in film, 18-year-old girls feel pressure to do preventative injecting. I see someone’s face, someone’s body who’d had children and I think they’re the song lines of your experience, and why would you want to eradicate that? I look at people sort of entombing themselves and all you see is little pin holes of terror… and you think, just live your life, death is not going to be any easier just because your face can’t move.

Cate Blanchett, “Motherhood, Hollywood and Cate”, The Age, May 9 2005
