"It's very difficult to know where to be."

We find ourselves having that conversation about getting older and how much London has changed and how much New York City has changed. 

"But the world's changed," says Blanchett. "It's very difficult to know where to be. I used to live with people about whom I thought, Why have you completely pulled up stakes and gone to the coast? Couldn't you have just moved to the suburbs? Or quit your job? 

It's like going dry, I imagine. Because sometimes life is so fast and so absolute that the only way you can change things is by actually shifting your life utterly and totally to a different hemisphere. You can't partially change. There's no semi-revolution."

-- From a candid and refreshingly well-written interview (less focus on clothes, more on personality, culture, and atmosphere) with Cate Blanchett in the January 2014 issue of Vogue magazine.
