Clooney praises Blanchett's acting

CateBlanchett.jpgGeorge Clooney is full of praise for his co-star in The Good German. He is full of praise for Cate Blanchett and her professional acting style, unlike some actors.

"Some actors, it's all about the craft and that's the most important thing in the world. But Cate will come to work and have a conversation about virtually anything and then the director will go 'OK, action,' and she'll turn around and have the perfect German accent. And then he will say cut, and she'll turn around and go, 'OK... anyway.' And I can't tell you how much that is appreciated because to me that is true professionalism, having the ability not to make everybody have to participate in your acting experience."

Starpulse News Blog carry the Clooney quote.

I'm a fan of Blanchett, both for her wonderful looks and her acting ability, and it's good to know she's held in high regard by others around her. Apparently the idea of actors staying in character between takes and being all ego doesn't really appeal to Clooney. Still, there's a touch of richness in the fact that Clooney is praising Blanchett for her acting talent don't you think?



Like you Richard, I've always admired Cate. She is not just beautiful but definitely loaded with talent. I did a marathon of a few of her films and I still need to see a lot more! The last I heard is that she has been made co-artistic director (alongside her playwright husband Andrew Upton) for the Sydney Theater Company in 2008, which means her acting career would have to take second priority.
