Val Kilmer Obsessively Tweets About Cate Blanchett


Cate Blanchett'[1]s biggest fan is (who knew?) Val Kilmer[2]. Over the weekend, "The Doors[3]" actor let loose with a series of adoring tweets about the Aussie actress, with whom he briefly shared the screen in 2003's "The Missing[4]."

In a social media blitz that rivals Jim Carrey's declaration of love for Emma Stone[5], the 57-year-old actor recounted a time he "flew all the way to Australia," to meet the Oscar winner, only to be met instead by her husband. (She's been married to screenwriter Andrew Upton since 1997.)

Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate. pic.twitter.com/xSoYxRi0jh[6]

He then shared that she's "just as amazing in person" and "so real it's almost unreal."

She's just as amazing in person. Some super stars aren't-Some superstars don't do a thing to ya in person-Cate is so real it's almost unreal

Next, he marvels at her "dazzling" skill with a shovel.

Once I did a cameo just to hang w/ #cateblanchett[9] who pickd up a shovel in our sc. I was so dazzled by HOW she picked it up I forgot my line

One Twitter user responded, per Fox News[11]: "Val, She's a married woman. You're coming off a little intense. You don't have to share this all on Twitter. Maybe buy a diary." To which the actor responded, "Nothing in the least creepy about loving someone. What kind of world do you come from?" (One with a little restraint?)

According to Fox News[12], Kilmer also shared a black-and-white shot of Blanchett, "accompanied by a musing of his own: 'I mean even if she couldn't act you know what I mean?,'" but the tweet appears to have been deleted.

After his Cate-is-great tweets, he next shared his love for Jessica Chastain.

And happy birthday to #JessicaChastain[13] whom I also love love love love love. And a #Julliard[14] alum as well.

Before the Blanchett lovefest, he retweeted a Yahoo UK story[16] documenting his "bizarre, star-studded stories" on Twitter, including anecdotes about Carly Simon, '60s French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot[17], and Peter Gabriel.

He currently appears in the Terrence Malick[18] film "Song to Song[19]."
