Cate Blanchett Plays ‘Shag, Marry, Kill’ With Lord of the Rings Stars, Makes the Best Choices

Galadriel all shall love me

There are three things that bring me joy in this world — Cate Blanchett interviews, “Shag, Marry, Kill” games, and The Lord of the Rings. Thankfully the first and third things have a tendency to overlap, and so do the first and second when the interviewer is Andy Cohen. Therefore, last night my three greatest joys came together on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, and it was glorious.

Cate was a guest in the clubhouse alongside Julie Andrews, aka what did we do to deserve seeing those two in the same room together? Andy challenged Cate to play a round of “Plead the Fifth,” in which he asks her three questions and she can only pass on answering one of them. One of the questions just happened to be a round of “Shag, Marry, Kill” involving Cate's Lord of the Rings co-stars Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and Viggo Mortensen.

If you're wondering whether Cate made the perfect decisions, she totally did. The first thing she answered was that she'd definitely shag Viggo. She was so focused on that answer that she forgot who her other two choices even were. When it came down to it, she chose to marry Elijah and kill Orlando, explaining, “It's not that I want to kill Orlando.” But you gotta kill someone. Them's the rules.

I don't want to claim that Cate Blanchett and I are even on the same level, because she's flawless and I haven't even brushed my hair today, but I would have totally chosen the same answers. Obviously I would marry Elijah, because my 12-year-old self would hate me if I didn't. And as much as Orlando has done for society (cough, taking a swing at Bieber), I think, when it comes down to it, I'd have to go with Viggo for the shag. This is serious business, my friends.
