The actress is now part of an elite group of women who have nabbed multiple Oscars: “We have meetings, we get together and we bring our two or three.

Cate Blanchett’s Oscar win for her role in Blue Jasmine makes her part of an elite group of women who have nabbed more than one Academy statue throughout their careers — of which the current count of actress is 19.

Blanchett will soon be seen in Disney’s live-action remake of Cinderella, in which she does not play the title character, but has loved watching reporters awkwardly ask her if she is. “I let them squirm a little bit!” she laughed, and then telling them that she plays Lady Tremaine. “No, no, I’m playing the wicked stepmother — not the ugly stepmother, the wicked stepmother, a slightly different aesthetic.

What have her many speeches throughout the past awards season proven? “That I’ve been drinking too much, perhaps, yes, that’s maybe what that proved.

Yet she’s currently excited about being part of the How to Train Your Dragon 2 voice cast, as the film premiered at the fest on Friday. “I saw the first How to Train Your Dragon film with my children, and I found it utterly exhilarating,” she told THR.

When director Dean DeBlois asked her to be part of the Dreamworks Animation sequel a few years ago, “I said, absolutely, because the whole process of trying to bring something to life in advance of the animation — purely with your voice — I found it a really interesting challenge.

She also testified that dragons aren’t the only things that are real. “The fairies exist — they’re here with me now.
