Cate Blanchett on “I’m Not There” the movie:
I’m Not There explores different pockets of a man who refused to be categorised. I have always loved his music, but I’m terrified about this because I am besotted. I watched the press conference he gave in San Francisco in 1965, or whenever it was, and just think, ‘I love you.’ The worst thing an actor can do is fall in love with someone they’re about to portray, but I’m not playing him.
My character is called Jude. It’s a riff on who Bob Dylan could possibly be. When I saw the script I thought, ‘This is so out there I can’t run away from this.’
