Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Cate Blanchett Should Totally Be A Marriage Counselor

Someone once said to me, and I think it’s quite true, that if your bodies actually fit together when you’re sleeping in bed — I’m not going to get into too much detail — you’re in good stead.

When you can spoon with someone, then you’re OK. Because you might not vote the same way, you might not have the same politics, but sometimes that works for people.

WTF?  Cate Blanchett shared this little gem of knowledge on Oprah.  You mean the success of a relationship is all based on spine curvature?  Why did she wait so long to share this?  If only I had known…I could have saved so much in attorney fees.  Thanks for nothing Cate.

  • Cate Blanchett should totally fuck off. I know she’s Australia’s (alleged) greatest export, but she fucking shits me with her superior know-it-all attitude and desire to mentor only those people who are wanky enough to apply to the Sydney Theatre Company.

    Fuck you Cate, and your smarmy husband too.

  • Wendie, why are you so mean?
    I know this is a gossip blog and it’s agiven that you have to be mean sometimes but I mean really all of your posts are either insulting someone or your’re just being unjustly cruel. I’m going to stop readingf this on the weekends because of you.

  • i thought that was cute… i remember when i realized how perfectly my boyfriend’s body and mine fit perfectly together when we just have our arms around each other… it’s a good feeling.

  • Well Wendie does sound a bit bitter. Anyway, it is important to find someone who you can sleep well with. Some people are cuddlers while others feel like you are sucking the life force out of them.

  • @paloma
    You might want to switch to reading People if you just want the celebrity approved / ego-indulgent commentary. What was “cruel”? Sheesh.

  • While I’m not a big Cate Blanchett fan, I actually like this quote and think it’s incredibly cute. It made smile, to say the least. ^_^

    Generally, I think you do a good job, Wendie, and I usually agree with most of what you say. In this case, however, I think you’re being a tad bit too harsh, over-analyzing and beating to death a statement that wasn’t meant to be the end all advice on relationships, but just a cute tidbit.

  • oooh…rockcriedout…you sound like one of those bitter people who didn’t get into NIDA or VCA. whinge whinge whinge…Cate is great!

    • I know, I do don’t I! I don’t feel that way about Cate anymore, I must have been having a really bad day!

  • My sister was watching this on Oprah, and she says that Cate was responding to a direct question from a fan asking for relationship advice. It’s just a cute little anecdote. It’s not like it’s the absolute, foolproof rule for relationships.

  • I think what Cate said was actually pretty cute. I can kind of see what she means- that you guys may think differently and value different things, but at the end of the day, you’re great if you can still cuddle all nice and tight.

  • Wendie…why the “ie”, when a “y” works just fine?
    Anyway, like it or not you are the evil step sister for EVIL BEET! Your place in the blogosphere will always be deminished…like a subsitute teacher….
    I think you are up against impossible odds to EVIL’S loyal followers!
    I feel your pain…..
    Love the Beet

  • I love what Cate said! I’ve always thought that very same thing, too, that if your bodies fit just right, that this is a good sign that the relationship is right, that your partner is the right one for you & vice versa, the whole fitting thing. She’s right! She’s referring to actual fitting, too, in the first winkwink nudgenudge part of the comment, she’s talking about your man’s penis fitting just right inside your puss, and I swear, she’s so right.

    Yeah, come on Wendie, I mean I like your weekend posts but sometimes you do tend to get carried away with puzzling attempts at “biting commentary,” like Persistant Cat said. Not EVERY post has to be bitter, you know!

    Anyway, Cate is awesome, I love this bitch. Lady Galadriel! LOVE her.

  • i love cate, but when most actors talk all i hear is “blah, blah blah”…i did like what she said though, it was actually kind of sweet.

  • i love having spoonathons. they’re the best! whoa-hoooo!

    that’s right…fucking spoon me,

    don’t talk so much,

    & make me a sandwich………MAN!

    (at least that’s how it goes in my head) :-)

  • Spooning! Who knew? Who knew that this was the solution all along? Oh, I’m sure that the key to her happy relationship might not be that her ol’ man gives her extra good lovin’ ’cause he doesn’t want to lose his cash cow.

  • @Eloise

    I have no intention of ever even considering applying for NIDA or VCA, let alone getting upset about not getting in. give me an institution with real people anyday.

  • I know, right?? I’m so relieved someone else is criticizing Kate’s words on that show. What an airhead response to that poor guy’s question. If she wants to be cute she should do it on her own time but not when people are asking her for real advise and are on air, expecting to be taken seriously. He was all admiring and looking up to her and asking her what classy women like her look for in a man cuz he’d like to be with someone like that someday instead of some ‘bar bunny’ and she gave the most shallow, useless ‘bar-bunny’ response!! Spooning, r u kidding me??? ANY two bodies fit together when spooning people, stop over-romanticizing her response. I can guarantee you, good spooning does not a good relationship make! It was stupid and shallow and even Oprah was unimpressed and tried to get a more meaningful response out of her to save Kate from embarassing herself and sounding so superficial! Moreover, to give the guy something to work with. Seriously, what is that guy supposed to do with spooning, go ask every classy-looking woman to spoon with him to prove that he’s the right guy for her?? Ummm, right, that will go over well….I lost a lot of respect for Kate after watching that show, partly due to the way she answered that question….Sorry but anyone I know could have given a better answer! The woman is beautiful and elegant and a great actress but she talks complete bullshit and lacks character in my opinion….
