There was a bit of hubbub last week when Cate Blanchett told Variety that she has had relationships with women "many times," and Ms. Blanchett would now like to clear a few things up. The topic came up because Blanchett stars in the lesbian drama "Carol," which was a hit at Cannes. "Have I had sexual relations with women? The answer is no," she says, adding that the part of her interview where she clarified that the relationships she was referring to wasn't sexual had been edited out.
