Late Show: Cate Blanchett, Stephen Colbert interview

Posted on


Cate Blanchett often plays characters who are tightly clinging to their sanity, or as Stephen Colbert put it on Thursday night’s episode of the Late Show: “barely keeping your sh— together.”

The Truth star granted Colbert’s request that she act out someone who resembles one of her characters. The source material: an Amazon review for a single serve blender (with travel lid).

“…It’s far from a powerhouse,” Blanchett read. “I don’t understand why they built this product expressly for purpose of creating liquid drinks to take out of the home with you and make a container leaky.”

The more distraught the reviewer became, the more Blanchett matched the emotion.

“If you are using this system to make drinks to take with you for lunch or a workout later in the day, you essentially have to spend your entire day worrying about leaks and remembering to hold your container carefully upright — which is the opposite of making things easier for you.”
