You gotta love that Cate Blanchett


I ran across this excerpt from an article done with the lovely and talented Cate Blanchett. I know she is a favorite actress of Richard’s, will be appearing in The Hobbit and is well-liked by this blogger and her commenters. Oh, if only more performers took the same attitude–there would be less celebrities walking around looking like they’ve been sucked through a wind tunnel/turned into aliens/changed their racial identity. I don’t foresee our Richard tampering with his face (thank God he never got that nose job he once contemplated. I love that magnificently masculine aquiline “hooter”).. I do hope these two get the opportunity to work together again on a future project.

Unlike some of her peers, Cate Blanchett is looking forward to aging naturally.

The Academy Award winner, 42, says she’ll never go under the knife to turn back the hands of time. “There’s been a decade or so of people doing intervention with their face and their body,” she tells Fashionista. “Now that we’re emerging from that, people are seeing that long term it’s not so great.”
Blanchett doesn’t judge women who decide to get plastic surgery, “but I know what works for me,” she explains.

“I’d just be too frightened about what it means long term. In the end if you have all that stuff done. . . you just see the work,” Blanchett says. “It doesn’t fill me with admiration — it fills me with pity.”
The Australian actress isn’t the first A-list beauty to speak out against plastic surgery in Hollywood: Kate Winslet, Rachel Weisz and Emma Thompson have all vowed to embrace their natural beauty.

Blanchett does, however, use natural means to maintain her youthful appearance

“I do the old glass of lemon juice in water in the morning. It just keeps your system going. I think it’s like people who get into colonic therapy — there’s a logic behind it. The French have been doing it, the Egyptians did it. There are certain things in ancient practices that [I won’t do] — I’m not going to bathe in my own urine.”
