Cate Blanchett has just been hired as the new U.S. face of SK-II, a high-end skin care line from Procter & Gamble Co.
Has just had her latest big screen project "Elizabeth: The Golden Age" released in the theaters wide, Cate Blanchett surely has a full plate of film promotion on her agenda these days. But that doesn't stop the actress from accepting at least one more job, to be the new face for the P&G skin care line.
Procter & Gamble Co. announced Thursday October 25th the tapping of Blanchett as the global ambassador for its high-end skin care line SK-II, which the Academy Award-winning actress previously represented in her home country of Australia.
Blanchett was first introduced to SK-II by a friend and make-up artist and has been using it for seven years. On her being tapped as its global ambassador she commented, "Throughout my career, I have only accepted roles that I am passionate about, and my partnership with SK-II is no different. I truly believe I already played this role as an ambassador long before SK-II caught up with me."
And thus, Blanchett's ambassadorship will now include the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Spain, where she will serve as the face of the brand's upcoming advertising campaign.
