Cate Blanchett Says No To Plastic Surgery, Possibly Yes To More Babies

Filed under: Celeb Parents

Cate Blanchett

Ah, the lovely Cate Blanchett. Can she do no wrong? It would seem so. Not only is she one of the world's great beauties, but she is a very talented actor and Oscar-winner who, it seems, also has a wonderful marriage and three lovely sons. Cate recently made a bevy of statements regarding all of these things that simply had to be dished about.

First off, Cate says no to plastic surgery. She said she wasn't about campaigning for or against it, but that it wasn't right for her. In fact, the I'm Not There actor, who is also currently starring in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, says her husband Andrew of eleven years would leave her if she got any nip/tucking. Cate confirmed what I've said all along, and what other celebs like Angelina Jolie have stated -- motherhood changes the way you look. Like Jolie, Blanchett (and her hubby) appreciate how pregnancy and motherhood change the face and the body. Says Cate, "I like the evolution of that history." Well put, my friend.

Beauty After Motherhood

    Angelina Jolie
    The actress and her partner Brad Pitt have three adopted children -- Maddox, 7, Pax, 4, and Zahara, 3 -- and three biological children -- Shiloh, 2, and baby twins Knox and Vivienne. "I know this is going to sound corny, but I first became happy with the way I look when I became a mother."

    Halle Berry

    Berry and boyfriend French-Canadian model Gabriel Aubry have one child, Nahla Ariela, born on March 16, 2008. It was her role in the film, "Things We Lost in the Fire," that convinced her motherhood was for her. "I think it validated that I was meant to be a mother because every day I dealt with the character as a mother and thinking as a mother...It let me know that I must be a mother."

    Gwyneth Paltrow

    Has two children, Apple, 4, and Moses, 2, named after a song her husband Chris Martin. "It's like being the most in love you've ever been...but mixed with the worst heartbreak...because one day you're not going to be together anymore."

    Julia Roberts

    Julia Roberts and her husband Danny Moder, have 4-year-old twins, Hazel and Phinnaeus, and a boy Henry, 17 months. She told Vanity Fair: "At this point I'm having so much fun with them. You only have so much energy and you want to put so much energy into each child. I wouldn't know how to have five kids. And they're a really good trio, these three."

    Jennifer Lopez
    her twins with husband Marc Anthony, Emme and Maximillian, were born 2008 by C-section. According to People, "Jennifer described it [motherhood] as the most magical time of her life. She said, 'You know what? You can win an Oscar, you can win a Golden Globe, and as an ambitious artist you strive for those things. But when you have a kid, all of that is irrelevant."

    Gwen Stefani

    She says that Zuma Nesta Rock and Kingston have brought her closer to husband Gavin Rossdale. Also, "I've gotten a little more feminine over the last few years. "As the years go by, you get more comfortable with looking more like a woman."

    Uma Thurman

    She's says she's open to the possibility of having more children. "If it's meant to happen, it will. I love and adore being a mother." Thurman has two children with ex-husband Ethan Hawke, Maya, 10, and Levon, 6.

    Thandie Newton
    The British actress, most recently starring in "W" as Condoleezza Rice, has two daughters, Ripley, 8, and Nico, nearly 4. "So many people thought I was a really cold person, but I was just painfully shy. But having a kid made me explore how I was going to guide another beautiful being in this world. I was released -- it doesn't happen for everyone, but it happened for me."

Will Blanchett consider having any more children? She certainly didn't say no. Cate is mom to three fabulous boys and, while she isn't specifically planning on having any more kids, wouldn't rule out adding to her brood. Cate raved about her children, whom she says all look like dad, as reason to have another. Only time, and Cate's break in her many projects, will tell if she adds another baby to her family -- maybe they'll try for a girl??? -- but one thing is for certain: No matter what this woman does, she seems to do it with an ethereal glow!
