It isn’t simply her acting ability that has made Cate Blanchett a two time Oscar winner. There’s also much to her character’s hair and makeup that affects the psychology behind her performances.By her own admission, she prefers to play against the look: “If a character appears particularly unhinged, with makeup running down her face, I like to play her as if she has it together. I think that juxtaposition makes it so much more interesting.”

In her most recent role – Carol,” (2015) – she had to pluck her eyebrows nearly every day to achieve a very stern look. “I just hated it. I much prefer a natural approach to beauty. You know, Coco Chanel always said to take one thing off before you leave the house, and I think that also applies to makeup.”

I like her face. It’s an interesting one, which makes it infinitely more memorable onscreen than the stereotypical beach bimbo look so beloved by millions.

Charlotte Gray (2001)

A Film 4 perennial but no less a movie for that fact, Blanchett is Charlotte Gray, a trained undercover courier for the British, parachuted into Vichy France to assist the local Resistance in its defiance of Nazi occupation. Despite the odds being stacked against her – only one out of three couriers will return home – Charlotte has her own equally important personal agenda – namely to locate her lover, an RAF pilot shot down over France.

Over time, she will test the loyalty of her resistance contact Julienn (Billy Crudup), fend off the unwanted attentions of a Vichy official, fight valiantly to safeguard two jewish boys and discover love in the most unlikely of places.
