Australia Gives ‘Stamp’ of Approval to Nicole, Cate, Russell and Geoffrey

Australia is honoring their Oscar-winning Australian actors, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush, by immortalising them on postage stamps. Wow. That is the ultimate honor. I know you can have your face put on a stamp on your own, but to have your country distribute to everyone is unbelievable.

The four actors/actresses were named legends of the year by the post office.

The special edition Australian stamps will make for essential movie memorabilia and can be bought online. Each of the film stars gets two stamps – showing them both in and out of character.
Nicole is pictured in a scene from Moulin Rouge, Russell’s stamp shows him in The Gladiator, Geoffrey’s is taken from Shine and Cate’s is from Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

The four Australian Academy Award winners have each received a 24-carat gold replica of the stamps and all were thrilled to be selected.
Nicole was excited that her children would one day be able to ‘lick a stamp, put it on an envelope and say

“that’s my mum.”‘

Congratulations to the four honorees!!

Cate Blanchett Lives the Romantic Life

Cate Blanchett is on the cover of February’s Vanity Fair speaking about her latest movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and her real life romance with her husband, Andrew Upton.

After just a few weeks of dating, Andrew Upton proposed to Blanchett and her reasons for saying “yes” speak volumes about their love affair.

She tells Vanity Fair:

“I couldn’t not. We were in exactly the same place at exactly the same time. He turned to me after a few days and said, ‘Cate … ,’ and I thought, ‘Oh, god, he’s going to ask me to marry him – and I’m going to have to say yes!’ He didn’t, in fact; he asked me what I wanted for dinner or something like that. But I’d never had that thought before. I thought, This is extraordinary! I’ve never felt this before. What an adventure!”

What is even more romantic is how Andrew feels about Cate with regard to plastic surgery:

Very fortunate – especially in the land of Hollywood.

 

“Andrew said he’d divorce me if I did anything. When you’ve had children, your body changes; there’s history to it. I like the evolution of that history; I’m fortunate to be with somebody who likes the evolution of that history.”
