Cate Blanchett has delivered many memorable performances throughout her career, but a Vulture article about one of filmdom’s most infamous scenes reveals a heretofore unknown credit for the Oscar-winning actress.

Vulture’s oral history of the orgy scene in “Eyes Wide Shut” reveals that Blanchett makes a brief appearance in the orgy scene from director Stanley Kubrick’s final film, an erotic thriller starring then-spouses Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise.

In the scene, Cruise’s character finds himself at a party in a mansion filled with masked revellers in the midst of an orgy. British actress-model Abigail Good, who is credited as the “Mysterious Woman” in the scene, told Vulture that she was overdubbed with an American voice.

“Stanley died before the dubbing was done,” she told Vulture, “and I always wondered before the film came out whether they were going to dub me, because I didn’t have an American accent.”

According to the late director’s personal assistant, Leon Vitali, the voice of a different actress was indeed used in the sexy scene.

“It was Cate Blanchett! That was her voice,” revealed Vitali.

“We wanted something warm and sensual but that at the same time could be a part of a ritual,” he explained. “Stanley had talked about finding this voice and this quality that we needed. After he’d died, I was looking for someone. It was actually Tom and Nicole who came up with the idea of Cate. She was in England at the time, so she came into Pinewood and recorded the lines.”

Blanchett has yet to confirm that she provided the American-accented voice for the scene.
