Cate Blanchett is a victim of a creepy coincidence as she always seems to spends her birthday filming death scenes. The Australian actress, 44, has revealed she has spent many birthdays on film sets and recently realised she regularly ends up dying on screen during her special day. She tells AnOther Magazine, "I have this thing on film where I do die quite a lot. And I suddenly realised, I was always dying on my birthday. I played an Irish journalist, Veronica Guerin, in a film (2003's Veronica Guerin) that about two and a half people saw - usually two to three people see the films that I make - and I was sitting on a highway doing this scene where she got shot and it was my birthday. "Then I got beaten up in another experience on film the next year on my birthday. And later I made a film with David Fincher called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and I died then too, on my birthday, on a hospital bed - and that was a relief."
