Cate Blanchett has seen better days

May 8th, 2007 // 118 Comments

Cate Blanchett showed up to the red carpet of the Costume Institute Gala in New York looking like some sort of troll. She usually looks elegant and ethereal, so I don’t know what the hell is going on here. She looks like she should be living under a bridge, hopping from foot to foot and waving a stick over her head.

    Dear fucking holy hell.

  4. mia

    That’s not her.

  5. mia

    Its courteney love.

  6. Her hair seems thin and are those liver spots on the side of her face?

    I think she’s geriatric.

    And judging from her expression, suffering from dementia.

  7. shanonorato

    None for me, thanks!

  8. Shocked that the pretty fairy princess doesn’t appear in the prequel, Cate auditions for the role of Golem in the Fellowship of the Rings.

    Wow my first thought too!!

  10. reptilicus

    Being an AIDS victim must suck.

  11. Fishstick

    wow. someone feed her a goat.

  12. SisterSweetly

    Good God…she looks like a famine victim.

    Or a junkie.

    Come on you people!

    She’s at the Costume Institute Gala, it’s obvious decided to go as Courtney Love.

    she would’ve looked almost normal if she didn’t get richard simmons to do her makeup or oscar the grouch to be her wardrobe stylist or if god had to decided to to take a rain check.

    What the hell are those bruises on the side of her boobs near her armpits? They look like vericose vein clusters on each side.

    Good lord, she looks like a sunken-cheeked vampire/zombie.


  16. Personally, I’d like to cut a loaf of bread on those collarbones of hers. Yum!

  17. jrzmommy♠

    please tell me this is for a role she’s agreed to take as David Bowie from his Ziggy Stardust-androgeny days

  18. daηielle™↵

    *decided* minus those 2 to’s.

  19. Clavicles … whatever ….

  20. veggi

    She needs to crawl up a pigs ass and make a ham sammich. WTF happened to her?

  21. that photo has been doctored by the Daily mail. you can see the original photos here —> and see them compared to the untouched ones. albeit she’s thinner than she was at the oscar’s, she’s not THAT skeletal looking.

  22. elbobcat

    That can’t be the real Cate Blanchett. She looks like a mummified version of Annie Lenox.

  23. ck

    She’s not the most beautiful woman but this is a particularly unflattering picture. Truth is, Cate is a style icon. Always adventurous in her choices.

  24. jrzmommy♠

    Courtney Love has about 50 pounds on her.

  25. DrPhowstus

    Good god! I thought Andy Warhol was dead!

  26. She looks better than Paris will in about 60 days.

  27. mia


    She looks the same in your picture, with a different angle.

  28. Hey Lindsay just called and said

    “hey calm down with the coke theres enough for everyone”

  29. honeycombs_big_yeahyeahyeah!

    Yummy, love the English Patient look.
    Dudette looks like Ralph Fiennes.

    The horrifying thing about Brits is when you boil it down and scrape an inch of make-up off the ladies’ ruddy complexions, the men and women look basically the same. I am sure “his and her” sweat suits and other such abominations originated over there.

  30. Stuffy

    She lost all the weight for a new movie called “Cancer Vixen: A True Story”

  31. GooniesNeverSayDie

    In a related story, HBO announces the return of “Tales from the Crypt,” hosted by Cate Blanchett.

  32. mia


    She’s australian.

    Hi Fish Posters!! I am back– to see you all again. I missed some of you esp. in this order- danYELL, Troller I and Troller II. I also see you all have not lost your lust for the one known as Richport.. Stalkers!!

    Alright- WTF?! What is this fucking diet these bitches go on and why does Rosie the fat ass go on it? Sooo sad. I tell ya

  34. PrettyBaby

    my first post back and fucking typos galore..

    Why doesn’t Rosie the fat as go on it?

    As you were.

  35. PrettyBaby

    Rosie the fat ass… Gahhhhh! LOL

    Just love me.

  36. tits_on_snack

    Thanks #22, if that had actually been the original photo. But it’s just another photo, from a different angle, of her looking the same.

  37. Plastic Sturgeon

    It is a sad day when an actual actress, AKA, Cate Blanchett, falls victim to anorexia.

    Yet I am still on a high because Paris Hilton was sentenced to jail.

    I am so confused inside. ;-)

  39. honeycombs_big_yeahyeahyeah!

    Thank you 33. Must join Blanchett fan club so I know these things.

    Aussies are basically Brits albeit slightly more awesome.

    My statement stands.

  40. mia

    I’m not a fan.

    But I can make a quick research on the internet.

  41. mia


    fucking racist

  42. costamar

    Newsflash!! Cate Blanchett must be doing hard drugs.

  43. lambman

    she looked fine last month, did she just quit eating or something? I hope she gets help

  44. drew51

    Why is she dressed as a zombie from “Dawn of the Dead”?

    Quick, someone shoot her in the head before she bites somebody. We don’t want an epidemic of the dead walking around.

    Oh oh, too late!!!!!

  45. Lazarus, Lazarus! I command you to rise and come out to us.

  46. Sir Mister Guy Man Dude

  48. Why is a skeleton famous?
