Let’s face it: the celebrities I admire the most are generally the ones I know the least about. Not sure if this says more about me or about them. Lindsay Lohan, for example? I know way more than I ever wanted to. Cate Blanchett? I know nothing about her except that she’s a chameleon-like actress who’s played everything from Elizabeth I to Bob Dylan.
Cate is amazing and Lindsay bugs me.
But I guess rules are made to be broken, because after accidentally reading about Cate in today’s Daily Telegraph, I like her even more. The Oscar winner and her husband just forked out $1.5 million plus to “greenovate” their $10 mansion in Sydney. According to the article, the project, overseen by Palm Beach-based Lesiuk Architects, includes greywater recycling, solar panels, energy saving lights and more.
The piece went on to say that Cate takes her greenness very seriously, spouting her environmental views to the press whenever possible and taking eco-friendly taxis at the airport.
Wow, I’ve really missed the boat on this one. I wonder if there are other “G”-worthy celebrities out there that I’ve intentionally avoided reading about? Who knows? Maybe even Lindsay has an eco-conscious.
On second thought, I doubt it.
