Alec Baldwin: Cate is wonderful in ‘Blue Jasmine’

208310-alec-baldwin Working with Cate Blanchett on Woody Allen’s new movie Blue Jasmine was thrilling for Alec Baldwin. He plays the sleazy husband of Blanchett’s depressed leading lady in the film and he says it was great working with her.

“To be on a set with someone like Cate, who is probably one of the five greatest movie actresses of her generation, I watch her put herself through that – it was a very, very emotional and kind of idiosyncratic role – and watch her and Woody collaborate. She would do it again and again and again,” Baldwin said.

He also believes that this role could get Cate nominated for an Oscar. He added: “I hadn’t been around that in a while. I was overjoyed to be around her. Cate is so wonderful in this film. I often hear people talk about Oscars and Oscar predictions with films and that kind of rubs me the wrong way but, in her case, I really do think she probably will get nominated for an Oscar for the film because she’s so wonderful in it.” Blue Jasmine centers on a woman whose life crisis causes her to head to San Francisco, where she reconnects with her sister. It was released on July 26.
