I decided to start a new challenge, if anyone wants to join me, feel free! :) I am counting down from ten to one, my favourite actresses. These are all actresses who are still currently working. If I had included legendary actresses too, I may have had a much tougher time choosing!
At number three is the gorgeously graceful Cate Blanchett. Cate has the amazing ability to look like a completely different person, in different roles she plays. I recall reading when Martin Scorsese was casting The Aviator that he said he wanted someone a bit like the girl in this film and a bit like a girl in that film and a bit like a girl in this other film, not realising they were all played by the same woman, Cate. Of course the role he was casting her for, was Katherine Hepburn, who I think she could almost be a modern day version of. They are both strong, handsome, rather than pretty and seem to have a really strong sense of self.
My favourite role of Cate's was in Elizabeth, where she played Elizabeth the First. I also loved her in The Gift and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. No matter what role she is playing though, she never fails to deliver. She's a true class act.
Thank you to the wonderful @satinee for the flawless edit of the beautiful dress in the set <3
