Catherine Élise “Cate” Blanchett was born on May 14, 1969 in Melbourne, Australia. She came to worldwide prominence for her performance in 1998’s Elizabeth. She next garnered critical acclaim for her portrayal of Katharine Hepburn in 2004’s The Aviator, for which she won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress.
She also gained international stardom as Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. She has since starred in other prominent movies, including Babel (2006), Notes on a Scandal (2006), Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008).
Has Cate Blanchett had Plastic Surgery?
As one of Hollywood’s finest actresses, Blanchett is no stranger to plastic surgery rumors. But the Oscar-winning actress revealed she’s never had plastic surgery. She added that not only has she not had any cosmetic operations but that she’s also against it. For her, plastic surgery is a scary thing, especially when she thinks of what it’ll do to her in the long-term.
The 45-year-old actress has been in the show business for quite a long time. She knows a lot of people in the industry have had something done surgically and she sees the results, to which she thought are not impressive. In an interview with Herald Sun, she said: “You look at a man or a woman in their 50s and all I see when they’ve brushed it all away is self-obsession and fear – and that’s not particularly attractive.”
