Cate Blanchett's biggest fan is (who knew?) Val Kilmer. Over the weekend, "The Doors" 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."
In a social media blitz that rivals Jim Carrey's declaration of love for Emma Stone, 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— Val Kilmer (@valkilmer) March 24, 2017
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— Val Kilmer (@valkilmer) March 25, 2017
Next, he marvels at her "dazzling" skill with a shovel.
Once I did a cameo just to hang w/ #cateblanchett who pickd up a shovel in our sc. I was so dazzled by HOW she picked it up I forgot my line— Val Kilmer (@valkilmer) March 25, 2017
One Twitter user responded, per Fox News: "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, 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.
Before the Blanchett lovefest, he retweeted a Yahoo UK story documenting his "bizarre, star-studded stories" on Twitter, including anecdotes about Carly Simon, '60s French sex symbol Brigitte Bardot, and Peter Gabriel.
