“Those of us in the industry who are still foolishly clinging to the idea that female films, with women at the center, are niche experiences, they are not! Audiences wants to see them, and in fact, they earn money. The world is round, people!” - Cate Blanchett

"I feel very fortunate to be in this position, and I know that it means more to people because I am an African and I am dark-skinned. In many ways me being on the scene is doing for little girls everywhere what Oprah Winfrey and Whoopi Goldberg did for me. My world exploded by them being on screen. Hopefully I will inspire and be meaningful to other people."

I’m pleased to tell you how wonderful your brothers and sisters are doing in their marriages. Maria Carolina is pregnant expecting her first child in June and Ferdinand is enchanted with Beatrice having made her his wife at once. All this news, which should fill me with contentment is diminished by reflections on your dangerous situation. Everything depends on the wife if she is willing and sweet. I can’t repeat enough the importance for you to employ charm and patience never ill humor, to remedy this unfortunate situation. Remember, nothing is certain about your place there…until an heir is produced.
