I remember being at a staff dinner last year and when we went around the table talking about celebrity crushes, one guy said Cate Blanchett, and I had no idea what the hell he was smoking. I can't put my finger on exactly what happened since then but I totally see it now. I think it's the mouth. Or the insane talent. Probably both. Chick is smoking hot.
#3 - 'Kate Wheeler' in BANDITS
Bruce Willis and Billy Bob-Thornton play the "Sleep-over Bandits", bank robbers who both fall for the same broad: Blanchett.
Since I'm probably one of the laziest people on the planet, I get a major kick out of chicks that have been treated like shit. Because it just makes my job so much easier. Chicks like that, so long as when you walk in the door at the end of the day and you remember her name and don't scissor kick her in the face, they're thinking they have the best guy in the world. Blanchett is exactly like that in BANDITS.
Plus, as the picture testifies, the chick is a red-head. Which multiplies her hotness by like a thousand percent. It's true - they've done studies.
#2 - 'Irina Spalko' in INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL
Some stuffy old treasure hunter of sorts is off gallivanting around the world looking for some Crystal Skulls. He is pursued by a Communist with Trixie from SPEED RACER's haircut. Oh yeah, and that treasure hunter is Indiana Jones.
I'll be honest, I didn't see this at all before I saw the movie -- I thought Blanchett looked freaking terrible in that do, and that the whole thing was exacerbated by bringing out in the same Summer when Christina Ricci (who I have a major chubby for) was rocking it.
But alas, I'm the first son of a bitch to eat his words on that one. Blanchett looks hot as hell in this flick. Her character is definitely not the best in the Indy canon, but she's definitely one of best looking.
#1 - 'Sheba Hart' in NOTES ON A SCANDAL
A veteran high school teacher befriends a younger art teacher, who is having an affair with one of her 15-year-old students. However, her intentions with this new "friend" also go well beyond platonic friendship.
Yeah Blanchett is hot in this flick because everyone reading this piece has at one time or another fantasized about banging their teacher. I would however, go out on a limb and conjecture that none of you have had a teacher looked like Cate Blanchett. Which is probably a good thing, with those raging adolescent hormones, God knows, the only thing standing between most of us and a felony was probably that our teachers realistically looked like rejects from CALENDER GIRLS.
Blanchett is so hot in this film, the young guys are in love with her, and even elderly broads want a piece.
