Who doesn’t love Cate Blanchett?
Well, clearly we can count George Clooney and Matt Damon among her admirers.
In this exclusive sneak peek at a special feature on the upcoming Blu-ray/DVD release ofThe Monuments Men, the two men happily sing their costars’ praises.
“I think of her as one of the two greatest living actors in the game. She and Meryl [Streep],” says Clooney, who directed the film. “And I feel lucky that she was willing to do the part. Cate and I did The Good German several years ago.”
Damon, meanwhile, gives a perfect example of Blanchett’s talents.
“Jean Dujardin was watching one of her scenes and says, ‘She seems French,'” he recalls. “When you’re playing somebody from another country, speaking at times in another language, and then speaking English with that accent, and you’re fooling one of the great actors from that country, I think you’re operating at a pretty high level.”
No wonder the 45-year-old actress picked up her second Oscar earlier this year.
Monuments Men will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on May 20.
