Cate Blanchett is unphotoshopped on the cover of The Intelligent Life – The Economist and it is so refreshing to see. The SK-II ambassador has amazing skin as it is and to see it up close and personal like this on the cover of a magazine not all smoothed out with her minimal spattering of fine lines, tiny bags under her eyes is explained by editor Tim de Lisle:
“When other magazines photograph actresses, they routinely end up running heavily Photoshopped images, with every last wrinkle expunged. Their skin is rendered so improbably smooth that, with the biggest stars, you wonder why the photographer didn\’t just do a shoot with their waxwork.”
“She looks like what she is â€” 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.”“
