The benevolent, kind-hearted side of us wouldn't wish illness on anyone (well maybe Karl Rove). But we really, really, really hope that temporary sickness β€” of a physical, not mental sort β€” can explain Cate Blanchett's startlingly skeletal, is-she-even-menstruating-at-this-point? physique at Monday's Costume Institute Gala. Yeah, we realize that a certain other Jezebel lady went gaga over Cate's dress.

And no, not in a bulimic way.
