I did not expect Blue Jasmine to do so well, says Blanchett

The actress said that she did not expect the film to do so well and is happy that people are liking it.
She said that while making the film, she felt that ‘I’d bitten off more than I could chew.’

‘It was such a complex, absurd, intense role- it was like going into battle every day,’ quoted Blanchett as saying.

She plays a rich Manhattan socialite who later gets a taste of poverty and homelessness and is glad that the audience understood the complexities of her character. ‘I’m just happy that it’s still on screens and that people are watching it-particularly that it’s being enjoyed across different generations because the character does and says a lot of unpalatable things,’ she added. The 44-year-old has been seen in films like The Aviator and Babel.
