Cate Blanchett, Intelligent Life Magazine Cover

Intelligent Life Magazine

Cate Blanchett is braver than most.

The Oscar winner graces the cover of Intelligent Life without any digital touchups. And unsurprisingly, the Oscar-winner looks amazing without any help from Photoshop!

Editor Tim de Lisle explained why the mag chose not to erase any of Blanchett's natural beauty on their cover: "She looks like what she is—a woman of 42, spending her days in an office, her evenings on stage and the rest of her time looking after three young children."

For her part Blanchett enjoys aging gracefully...

"There's been a decade or so of people doing intervention with their face and their body," she recently told Fashionista.com. "Now that we're emerging from that, people are seeing that long term it's not so great."

"I'm not sitting on a soapbox telling women what they should and shouldn't do, but I know what works for me," she added. "I'd just be too frightened about what it means long term. In the end if you have all that stuff done... in the end you just see the work. It doesn't fill me with admiration, it fills me with pity."
