The 57-year-old actor and the 47-year-old actress - who has three sons, Dashiell, 15, Roman, 12 and eight-year-old Ignatius, and two-year-old daughter Edith with husband Andrew Upton - starred together in 2003's 'The Missing' and it appears Val was impressed by more than just her acting ability on set.

On Saturday (25.03.17), the 'Batman Forever' revealed how he once got on a plane from the US to Australia just to be in Cate's company and how he "recently" had "two dreams" about her, which didn't involve her spouse.

He wrote: "Once I flew all the way to Australia just to talk to Cate Blanchett. Her husband met me first. Or, instead, I guess, to be accurate ... And recently I've had 2 dreams with #CateBlanchett in them. Her husband wasn't in either of them ... She's just as amazing in person. Some super stars aren't-Some superstars don't do a thing to ya in person-Cate is so real it's almost unreal ... (sic)"

He also shared how he picked a small part in an unknown movie just so he could see her and was mesmerised by how she used a shovel in their scene.

He added: "Once I did a cameo just to hang w/ #cateblanchett who pickd up a shovel in our sc. I was so dazzled by HOW she picked it up I forgot my line (sic)"

Despite admitting he is attracted to the blonde beauty, the 'Top Gun' star insisted he was friends with her husband and they all "get along just fine".

The dark-haired hunk also told his followers that he doesn't need to "curb [his] enthusiasm" about the 'Blue Jasmine' actress and if anyone doubts him he knows Cate will "back up every word" he's said about her.

Val also said he has a lot of respect for flame-haired actress Jessica Chastain, 40.

He wrote on the micro-blogging site on Sunday (26.03.17): "I mean even if she couldnt act you know what I mean? ... And happy birthday to #JessicaChastain whom I also love love love love love. And a #Julliard alum as well ...

"I've never done said or written a single idea that wasn't of the highest respect and admiration for #cateblanchett or any other great talent ...

"She's a friend of mine and I've met her husband thru the years and we've all gotten along just fine.

"Anyone who thinks I need to curb my ... Enthusiasm for a great rare artist doesn't understand how difficult the job is and how we artist count on the respect of our peers.

"She will ... Back up every word I say n love that I say I love her. I would love an actor I didn't even enjoy if he flew the world to talk about a role. (sic)"

It's not the first time Val has rambled about his feelings for Cate as in 2006, he said while they were shooting 'The Missing' he could barely read out the script because he was so in awe of her beauty.

At the time, he said: "I think she probably got a sense of it when I not only forgot my dialogue in the scene, I forgot that I was acting, I forgot I was on a movie set, and I just stood there staring at her."

Cate doesn't have a Twitter account, so hasn't been able to respond yet.
