Cate Reveals Hepburn's Imperfections

Australian movie star CATE BLANCHETT has discovered silver screen icon KATHARINE HEPBURN is less than perfect - she alleges the legend was "freckly" and "sweaty".

Blanchett, who plays Hepburn in new movie THE AVIATOR, always thought Hepburn was picture perfect but found out when researching her role that she was far from the movie diva she portrayed onscreen.

Blanchett reveals, "She sweated a lot. Apparently she was quite sweaty, so the make-up artist made me quite glowy.

"And she was very freckly... Because the lights were so strong and they wore so much make-up, I didn't even realise she was a red-head with freckles until I saw her in her later life."
