Cate Blanchett cookies commercial resurfaces

Posted on

Sure, Cate Blanchett has a pair of Oscars and international fame now, but back when she was just starting out all she really wanted was an endless supply of chocolate cookies.

Vanity Fair found a ’90s commercial for Tim Tams that the now-acclaimed actress starred in at the very beginning of her career. Filmed in her native Australia, Blanchett happens upon a genie in a magic lamp in the ad and uses her first wish to get “a packet of Tim Tams that never runs out.”

Funnily enough, Blanchett isn’t the only star in the Tim Tams commercial. The genie is played by Australian rapper and Olympic hurdler N’fa.
