Blanchett's Husband 'Repulsed' By Dylan Role

Subscribe to Cate Blanchett alerts

Actress Cate Blanchett terrified her husband while filming Bob Dylan biopic I'M NOT THERE - because he was "repulsed" at the sight of her disguised as a man. The Elizabeth star appears in drag in the new movie - for which she was named best actress at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month (Sep07) - but her spouse Andrew Upton hated seeing his usually feminine wife in character as the male singer/songwriter. She says, "He wouldn't come near me. He was utterly repulsed by it." And Blanchett admits she was prepared to go to great lengths to portray a man. She explains, "My friend put a sock down my pants and that kind of helped my walk." The Todd Haynes-directed movie sees six different actors including Christian Bale, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger and Blanchett take on the life of Dylan during different periods of his career.
