‘The hardest thing as a jury member is to sit in judgement of other people’s work. That’s the hardest thing not the (gender) demarcation.’

Cate’s recently revealed she prefers to be referred to as an actor than an actress, as she often found the latter term to be used in a ‘pejorative sense’.

Throwing her support behind Berlin International Film Festival’s new plan to do away with gendered awards, she told AFP: ‘I have always referred to myself as an actor.

‘I am of the generation where the word actress was used almost always in a pejorative sense. So I claim the other space.’
