Here's a look at the life and work of Cate Blanchett - arguably one of the best actors of our time. I believe there is a secret to this kind of greatness. The kind that produces Katherine Hepburn and Meryl Streep. It's called "abnegation of self." The complete sacrificing of oneself in service of the character, the art, and those who will be fed by it. Some lovely clips from Benjamin Button, Elizabeth, the Aviator, and Blue Jasmine follow below. Happy Birthday, Cate!
