CATE Blanchett thinks she's made too many films.

The 44-year-old Australian actress - who has received several accolades including a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and two BAFTA awards - may be one of the most wanted stars in Hollywood, but she feels she needs to stop agreeing to appear in so many movies.

Speaking to the Metro newspaper, she said: "I think there are way too many films made and I've probably made way too many films.

"But I do think there's something about live performance that is compelling. It reveals what it means to be human.

"It's a very intimate, connective art form. That's why I do it. All of the stuff - "What are you wearing? Who do you like kissing the most?" - that goes along with it doesn't interest me in the least. But the art form does interest me."

Blanchett - who has previously starred alongside the likes of Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon - insists she's not interested in big-budget blockbusters and just prefers to work alongside great actors instead.

She explained: "In my career, I've never wanted to get anywhere in particular. I just wanted to work with interesting people on interesting projects."
