A lot of people were happy to see Cate Blanchett naked in the recent psychological drama Tár, which was only yesterday snubbed for an Oscar not once, but six times. More than that, a lot of people were excited that the Australian actress had done a full frontal nude scene for the first time. I mean, the peek of pubic hair in Bordertown doesn’t count, right? Cate’s character in that has albinism, and the bush she sports does as well, so unless they literally bleached her bush for one fleeting shot in the miniseries, I reckon it’s safe to say that that was a merkin. Definitely no merkins in Tár, though. In fact, her pussy looks fully shaved. Very noice.
But there were nay-sayers – negative nancies who reckoned that with how dark the shot was, our Galadriel of old was actually not naked. So I investigated using the magic of color correction, and I can tell you that they were wrong! Well, partially wrong, but also partially right, sadly. We do genuinely get to see Cate Blanchett topless, although as you can see from the video and images here, there is very little detail of her nips in the footage. There’s pretty much only enough detail to confirm that her tits are there and visible in all their glory, nipples and all. As for her crotch and ass, she appears to be wearing some sort of skin-colored modesty panties. I don’t normally like bearing bad news, but the status of this nude scene has been controversial since the movie came out, so I’ll take the bitter victory of settling it. Maybe this is why the Academy Awards were so unkind.
So there’s Cate Blanchett nude in Tár. The gallery is below, as always, but before we get into that, I’d like to make a quick technical note. You may have noticed that the title of this post and the resolution tag label it as 4K / Ultra HD / 2160p, and yet the gallery images have a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels and a vertical one that matches the aspect ratio for 1080p. This is not an error. I captured this from the 4K blu ray. When I was setting up the composition for the video, which I would have had to render in 1080p anyway for Redgifs and Twitter, I noticed that I didn’t need to scale anything down to make it fit, and so I just used the same crop for the images. In other words, the below gallery is genuinely in 4K but with 75% of each image (which contains nothing important) missing. I hope that was a clear explanation in spite of the brevity. If it wasn’t, just forget about it and fap to Cate Blanchett nude in Tár.
