Cate Blanchett
The actress appears Photoshop-free on the March/April 2011 cover of the Economist's Intelligent Life. The magazine's editor, Tim de Lisle, said, "When other magazines photograph actresses, they routinely end up running heavily Photoshopped images, with every wrinkle expunged." He wanted to try something different with Blanchett. "She looks like what she is--a woman of 42, spending her days in the office, her evenings on stage, and the rest of her time looking after three young children," said de Lisle of her cover photo.
