Cate Blanchett Desperately Wanted to Play a Dwarf & Wear a Beard

Cate Blanchett carries her lunch while out and about on Thursday (July 31) in New York City.

The 45-year-old actress is in town to star in a new production of the play The Maids, which will only be shown for two weeks at City Center.

While promoting her movie The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies at Comic-Con last weekend, Cate revealed one of her wishes.

“I was so desperate to play a dwarf. The facial hair. You go into the wig room. Oh my god. The beard,” Cate told ET Canada.
