Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett has confessed to an unusual obsession - unattractive underwear. She has only recently begun wearing store-bought panties, after years of using home-made ones. She says, "I have the worst underwear drawer. I was talking about it yesterday to the costume designer. I said, 'I've got some daggy undies' on today. "Up until six years ago, I still had these stretched elastic, homemade undies that my mother made me in high school. "I actually thought they were quite sexy."
