Cate Blanchett Displays Her Lord of the Rings Elf Ears on Her Mantle for Good Luck
Cate Blanchett displays her Lord of the Rings Elf Ears on her mantle at home - she even had them bronzed.
The actress played the elf queen Galadriel in Lord of the Rings' trilogy and displays her elf ears for 'good luck' in one of many odd celebrity superstitions.
Cate also has a new tattoo to celebrate her Oscar win earlier this month.
The 44-year-old star - who picked up the Best Actress prize at Sunday's Academy Awards for her role in 'Blue Jasmine' - was seen visiting Shamrock Social Club with husband Andrew Upton and their friends Amy Adams and her fiancé Darren LeGallo the day after the awards ceremony.
And, according to the New York Post newspaper, Cate was seen leaving the tattoo parlour - which has previously inked stars including Johnny Depp, Lady Gaga and Harry Styles - with a black bandage on her wrist, while Darren was sporting a similar dressing on top of his forearm. It is unclear what designs they had administered.
A staff member at Shamrock Social Club declined to comment on the high-profile visit.
However, the posted on their twitter account: "Congrats to our friends @JaredLeto and #CateBlanchett for your #Oscar wins! (sic)"
It is believed this isn't the first time Cate - who has sons Dashiell, 12, Roman, nine, and Ignatius, five, with Andrew - has had a tattoo.
A photograph from an unknown date of her modeling a Dior Homme suit and slightly lifting her shirt showed a hint of artwork.
And when once asked if she had tattoos, she simply replied: "Oh, there you go."
