Today in Comics History, May 14: Happy birthday, Cate Blanchett!

Happy birthday, Cate Blanchett, award-winning actress and star of films as diverse as The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King!

from "Bored of the Rings: The Feeble Schtick of Ka-Ching!" in MAD #416 (April 2002), script by Desmond Devlin, pencils by Hermann Mejia

Also, she was goddess of death Hela in the good Thor film. Hey, nice Kirby Hat, Cate!

Happy birthday, Cate! Sorry to not focus on your roles in The Talented Mr. Ripley, The Shipping News, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, The Aviator, Hot Fuzz, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Ocean's 8, or Don't Look Up. Try to star in more movies that have comic book adaptations next year, okay?
