There’s no rest for the wicked — or rather — the talented, the tall, and the beautiful.

In 2016, Cate Blanchett had been attending events left and right since the new year kicked off, and she was showing no signs of slowing down even on the day before the Golden Globes. In fact, she attended two events.

How old was Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth?

In 1998, Cate portrayed Queen Elizabeth I of England in Elizabeth, a British biographical drama film written by Michael Hirst. She is much taller than the Virgin Queen, who is believed to have been between 5ft 3 and 5 ft 5.

Elizabeth premiered in September 1998 at the Venice Film Festival when Cate Blanchett was 29-years-old. The movie was filmed in 1997 when she was 28-years-old. Born on May 14, 1969, in Ivanhoe, Australia, she turned 29 on May 14, 1998.

In 2007, she reprised her role as the English monarch in Elizabeth: The Golden Age, which was released on October 12, 2007, when Cate Blanchett was 38-years-old.

Reportedly 5’8″ (174 cm) when not wearing high heels, Cate showed up at the 2016 Film Independent Filmmaker Grant and Spirit Award Nominees Brunch, and later changed into another outfit for the BAFTA Los Angeles Awards Season Tea.

At the BAFTA, Cate wore a Camilla and Marc top with a pink satin midi skirt. Earlier that day, the Lord of the Rings actress was in a vibrant Del Pozo pullover.

Even though Cate works in an industry with a bevy of personal stylists constantly available, the star was practical enough to wear only one pair of shoes throughout the day.

The then 46-year-old kept her trusty Giuseppe Zanotti pumps on throughout the two events.
