It's fairly easy to love Cate Blanchett
. She's gorgeous, she's mad talented and she's capable of being an Australian who had a role as one of the most famous British members of royalty, which never ceases to crack me up since those were the very people who decided to ship convicts to Australia and ended up creating the world in which Cate Blanchett was created. UK's Harper's Bazaar is using their December issue to feature Cate on the cover as well as having given her a generous spread inside the magazine as well, where the 44-year old proves that you don't have to have surgery - even in Hollywood! - to be continually gorgeous. A little Photoshop here and there, but for the most part, I'd gladly take Cate's 40-something any day.
