Cate Blanchett has denied dating women in the past after it was reported she had admitted to being bisexual last week.
The two-time Oscar winner, who has three sons Dashiell, 13, Roman, 10, and Ignatius, six, and adopted baby daughter Edith with husband Andrew Upton, has insisted she didn't say she had been in a relationship with a woman "many times" during an interview with Variety.com which was released earlier this week.
The 'Carol' star - who portrays a women in a same-sex relationship in the upcoming film - said during a press conference for the movie at the Cannes Film Festival today (17.05.15): "From memory, the conversation ran, 'Have you had relationships with women?' And I said, 'Yes, many times. Did you mean have I had sexual relationships with women? Then the answer is no.' But that (last part) obviously didn't make into print.'"
The blonde beauty added she doesn't understand why her personal life is of interest to anyone.
She said: "In 2015, the point should be, 'Who cares?' Call me old-fashioned, but I thought one's job as an actor was not to present one's boring, small, microscopic universe.
"My own life, is of no interest to anyone else. Maybe it is. I don't know. I'm certainly not interested in putting my own thoughts and opinions up there."
