Cate Blanchett hilariously reveals she wore her own fake teeth and wig in Don't Look Up

Cate Blanchett has admitted she wore her own fake teeth and wig in Netflix‘s Don’t Look Up because coronavirus restrictions prevented her from having a make-up artist.

The actress, 52, revealed she had inherited the props from a previous film and, along with some make-up, was able to unrecognisably transform herself into TV anchor Brie Evantee.

During an appearance on The Graham Norton Show, she explained: ‘Because of Covid, it was very difficult to get anyone to do anything.

She went on to gush about psychological thriller Nightmare Alley, in which she stars alongside Bradley Cooper in the Guillermo del Toro directed picture.

The Oscar winner said: ‘Playing a femme fatale is a pretty rare opportunity.

‘The production design was incredible – the director was across every single detail – we even had the lighter from The Maltese Falcon but of course it took about 97 takes to get it to work.’

Along with Bradley, its stellar ensemble cast include Toni Collette, Rooney Mara, Willem Dafoe, Richard Jenkins, Ron Perlman, Mary Steenburgen and David Strathairn 

Set in the waning days of the Depression, Del Toro’s take is neither a strict adaptation of the 1946 novel, for which the film is based on, nor a remake of the 1947 film. 

Don’t Look Up smashed Netflix streaming records with more than 152 million hours streamed around the world in a single week, according to the network.

Leonardo told People in September that Adam ‘has an unparalleled ability to spark conversation with humor and timely stories.’

He said: ‘I knew when I read his script that it was incredibly unique, as it struck an important chord concerning the modern world we live in.’

‘Adam has woven an incredibly timely message about society, how we communicate, our current priorities, and the climate crisis into an absurdly funny yet important movie.’

Leonardo and Jennifer portray two astronomers racing against time to warn the world about an impending asteroid set to destroy the planet.

Adam scrolled through his rolodex of A-listers with a cast including Timothee Chalamet, Ariana Grande, Tyler Perry, Mark Rylance, Ron Perlman and more.
