Today marks the 47th birthday of the wonderfully luminous and ridiculously talented Cate Blanchett. I can’t stress enough how much she is one of my favourite actresses and how her presence on screen is reliably excellent. She is the most versatile performer, capable of completely disappearing into her roles and delivering stunning performance after stunning performance. And she does is with so much power and vigour, she is a force of nature and a stunning beauty. It is impossible to take your eyes off Blanchett with her statuesque frame, defined cheekbones and porcelain skin. She is a performer in every sense of the word who never fails to dazzle audiences and critics. So Happy Birthday Cate Blanchett; may you have so many more electrifying roles and performances in the future.
