Watch A Young Cate Blanchett Star In A Very '90s Tim Tam Commercial

Want proof that Cate Blanchett has always been an amazing actor? Skip "Blue Jasmine" and instead watch this commercial for Tim Tam, in which she's granted a wish and selects a never-ending supply of the popular Australian chocolate biscuit. (It's obviously a Method performance, because who doesn't want a lifelong slate of chocolate biscuits?)

The YouTube clip was uploaded in 2010 but resurfaced this week following Blanchett's Best Actress victory at the Academy Awards. The description indicates that it comes from the mid-'90s, which is believable given Blanchett's frizzy tresses and the fact that it looks like a scene from the 1996 Shaquille O'Neal movie "Kazaam." As Blanchett says in the ad, "What more can you want?"
