Cate Blanchett Cover
March 22, 2012 by staff
Cate Blanchett Cover, It could go without saying, but here’s confirmation that a host of Hollywood actresses – Demi Moore included – are cut from a different cloth to Cate Blanchett. In the same week that Moore’s new ad campaign for cosmetics brand Helena Rubinstein showed her looking closer to 20 years of age than her almost-50, Australian Blanchett has eschewed all post-production magic for her Intelligent Life cover.
The magazine’s editor, Tim de Lisle, explained the reasoning behind the un-retouched image in his editor’s letter: “When other magazines photograph actresses, they routinely end up running heavily Photoshopped images, with every last wrinkle expunged. Their skin is rendered so improbably smooth that, with the biggest stars, you wonder why the photographer didn’t just do a shoot with their waxwork.”
Oscar-winning Blanchett talks of her job as joint artistic director of the Sydney Theatre Company and return to Europe to star in an Australian production of a German play. She posed for the cover quite simply, in her working clothes.
“She looks like what she is” continues de Lisle, “a woman of 42, spending her days in an office, her evenings on stage and the rest of her time looking after three young children.
‘We can’t be too self-righteous about it, because, like anyone else who puts her on a cover, we are benefiting from her beauty and distinction. But the shot is at least trying to reflect real life. It’s a curious sign of the times that this has become something to shout about.”
