  Back in February, Blanchett hinted at a minor existential crisis of her own in an interview with Julia Roberts, where she told Roberts she was thinking about quitting acting.

  ’” At last night’s premiere of Bernadette at New York’s Metrograph, we asked Blanchett if she was serious about wanting to throw in the towel and become a chicken-herding Proust scholar.

  ’” Blanchett said.

  ’” Vulture implored Blanchett to continue acting for the sake of the people.

  “We’ll see what you say when you see this movie,” Blanchett said.
