QueenCate Meme: @ariml’s Fave drama performance: Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator

It’s one thing to play on screen someone who has lived and breathed, someone people have an image of and regard as an icon, but it’s another thing entirely to play her in the very medium in which she has become so revered. The truth is that I don’t think I would have attempted such a feat for anyone other than Martin Scorsese. Marty and I talked about it a lot. He didn’t want me to do any kind of burlesque or cabaret act in recreating her. He wanted something deeper. He wanted me to observe her mannerisms and her gestures and her screen persona, and try to capture the truth of her personality and something of her extraordinary energy. -Cate Blanchett on playing Katharine Hepburn
