Girl Crush: Cate Blanchett

I've had a crush on Cate Blanchett since Elizabeth came out. I thought she was brilliant and she has yet to disappoint me with her acting. She has been in some shitty movies but she is always the highlight. With some overrated (in my opinion) actresses - yes, I mean you, Julia Roberts - you always get the same character. Julia is always Julia in whatever movie she is. And when she is not, she fails miserably at NOT being Julia.

Cate, however, disappears in her roles. She transforms from one role to another (again, is my opinion) and has only gotten more gorgeous and talented with the years.

One of my favorite websites recently featured a spread she did for T magazine and I just fell in love with this photo:
Really, a moment of simplicity, but I love how striking she looks nonetheless. And I want her haircut.

I agree with you completely,
she's a very brilliant actress
not too flashy by Hollywood standards
but she delivers in every movie...
I especially love her on The Aviator and Notes On a Scandal ♥

Seriously great photo! I love her haircut too, but I'm think it may not be quite so fabulous on me. :)

I agree, Claudia. Some actresses are always the same in every movie. With some of them, I get lost in their character and I forget who they are. That, for me, is the mark of a good actress. Cate is one of them.
