    Now there’s a real lady – holding her top instead of opting for the trashy publicity shot. And what an actress! Congrats!!

    Cate Blanchett is fabulous. LOVE her.

    You must see “The Gift”. It’s a great movie, and Cate was brilliant in it.

    Actually, the entire cast and director deserves applause.
