The Thor star has ditched her familiar blonde hair for a short mousy brown pixie cut, giving Weakest Link Host vibes while in Ireland for her new mysterious film.
Cate, 54, was beaming from ear to ear as she was seen dressed in brown frame glasses, a red turtleneck, a white shirt, and a beige trench coat for her as-yet-unknown role.
She walked out of a gate outside an old house and hugged her co-star, Charlotte Rampling, who was a colourful contrast in all pink.
Rocking her pink hair, pink fluffy coat, and pink boots, the 77-year-old actress carried a pink shopping bag with a black YSL backpack to complete her look.
Thought to be called Father, Mother, Sister, Brother, very little is known about the movie – not even a plot – with the entire cast and crew keeping tight-lipped.

They have been on location in County Dublin filming but that’s all about to change as the cast relocates to France for the second phase of shooting.
It is the first time in two decades that the Carol star will team up with director and filmmaker Jim Jarmusch who himself has been on a five-year hiatus.
The acclaimed filmmaker’s last movie was 2019’s The Dead Don’t Die, an absurdist zombie comedy which starred the likes of Bill Murray, Adam Driver, and Tilda Swinton.
Cate starred in his 2003 anthology Coffee & Cigarettes, which also featured Steve Buscemi and Iggy Pop.
Jim revealed a tiny tidbit about his new project at the Overlook Film Festival in April last year.

He said: ‘The film we’re preparing now for late this year to shoot, probably, I think, may have no music […] It’s a very subtle film; it’s very quiet. And I think music could move it too much one way — it’s a funny and sad film, right?
‘It sort of has both woven in. I don’t know if I wanna have music to add some other thing over it. It doesn’t really want it so far.’
It’s believed the film may be completed by spring 2024 but there is no word for when this may be released to the masses.
The film is set to hit cinemas in August, with a huge ensemble cast including Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Bobby Lee and Jamie Lee Curtis.
