Say what you like about Cate Blanchett's acting abilities, but never, ever, ever question her talent for chugging a pint.

The Aussie actress was on Jimmy Fallon's show last night and was taking part in a blind taste test, where she was basically feeding Fallon burgers and pointing out the superiority of Australian burgers to American ones (it's all about the egg, onion and beets, FYI).

Of course, no burger-based meal would be complete without a beer to wash it down - and not only did she not sip politely, but she chugged the damned thing... through a straw.
