In Carol, debuting at Cannes Sunday, Cate Blanchett plays a woman who gets romantically involved with another woman. In an extensive Variety interview about the film, asked whether this is Blanchett's "first turn as a lesbian," the actress replied, "On film—or in real life?" But don't expect to get details out of her: Asked, then, if she'd "had past relationships with women," all Blanchett said was, "Yes. Many times." And, who knows, she may not even refer to those relationships as "lesbian" ones—her character never comes out as a lesbian, and Blanchett says she "never thought about" labels and doesn't think the character did, either.
