Oscar winner Cate Blanchett is in love with folk rocker Bob Dylan but is terrified of meeting him after playing the singer in the upcoming film I’m Not There.
The actress is one of several stars including Richard Gere and Christian Bale portraying the legendary musician to represent different aspects of his life.
“Bob Dylan’s persona is divided into six different parts,” she says. “ I play Bob Dylan when he went electric, so I had the hair. It’s not a biopic. I think when you kind of juxtapose all those different incarnations you get an approximation of him.”
Blanchett also revealed her admiration for the folk rock star.
“‘Cause he’s so elusive, and I’m so in love with him and I’m so glad I never met him – I’d be terrified! My brother-in-law met him,” she says. “He was at a party in LA about 15 years ago and he was talking to this really cool guy. They had shared a joint and after he left, everyone came up to my brother-in-law and said, ‘How do you know Bob?’ and he said, ‘Bob, who?’ He thought he was talking to the gardener!”
