Cate Blanchett looks completely unrecognizable in her mousy brown bob

Cate Blanchett looks completely unrecognizable in her mousy brown bob as she joins pink-haired Vicky Krieps on the set of new film Father, Mother, Sister, Brother

Oscar winner Cate Blanchett's lack of recognition on Wednesday as she worked on her latest film was entirely justified.

The Australian star is currently on location in the Republic of Ireland, where filming is underway for Jim Jarmusch's first film in five years, Father, Mother, Sister, Brother.

When Blanchett, 54, turned up on set in County Dublin, she looked completely different with a mousy brown bob and bookish glasses as she filmed scenes with pink-haired co-star Vicky Krieps.

A beige trench coat, a gray schoolgirl skirt and heavy black shoes completed a sober-looking ensemble and helped the actress fully embrace her yet-to-be-specified role.

Krieps, 40, also had a makeover, with the celebrated actress complementing her dyed hair with a bright baby pink jacket and faded jeans.

On Wednesday, as she worked on her latest film (pictured right, with co-star Vicky Krieps), any disparagement of Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett was entirely justified.

Blanchett most recently worked with Jim on the 2003 anthology film Coffee & Cigarettes, which also starred Steve Buscemi and Iggy Pop.

Father, Mother, Sister, Brother will be Jim's first film in five years – as the Ohio-born director revealed the project was in the works during a candid conversation at the Overlook Film Festival in April last year.

“The film that we are now preparing to shoot at the end of this year, in my opinion, will probably not have any music.” […] It's a very subtle film; It's very quiet. And I think music might move it too much in one direction – it's a funny and sad movie, right?

“The two are somehow intertwined. I don't know if I want to have music to add something else on top of it.” “It doesn't really want it yet,” he revealed.

No further information about the plot or cast has been revealed so far, but there are rumors that filming will be completed by spring 2024.

Blanchett embarked on her latest project after completing work on Guy Maddin's ensemble comedy Rumors with Alicia Vikander.

She has also completed filming on Borderlands, an American science fiction film based on the video game of the same name.

And despite the delays caused by the SAG-AFTRA strikes in Hollywood, the actress remains fully booked and busy as Cate is also set to appear in Alfonso Cuaron's Apple TV thriller series.

Outside of work, Blanchett recently sparked a row with neighbors after revealing plans to convert a field into a driveway and car park for her £5million holiday home in Cornwall.

The Hollywood star and her husband Andrew Upton have been accused of “grabbing the land” to prevent anything being built next door.

Neighbors had already accused the “Lord of the Rings” actor of damaging sensitive coastal wildlife habitat by demolishing a cottage to make way for a much larger, environmentally friendly home.

When completed, the three-story home will have four bedrooms, a basement pool, showers and an area for surfboards and wetsuits.
