Blanchett stars as the title character in the Woody Allen flick as a down-on-her-luck former socialite who loses it all. For the actress, the decision to take this role was easy after years waiting to work with Allen. SOUNDBITE: Cate Blanchett, actress, saying (English): "So many people that I knew and had worked with him, and I thought 'oh well, some filmmakers just aren't interested,' and then I got 'the call,' and I was really thrilled." The film also stars Alec Baldwin, Andrew Dice Clay and Sally Hawkins. "Blue Jasmine" opens in New York and Los Angeles on July 26.
