(Newser) – Australian movie stars Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Russell Crowe, and Geoffrey Rush have been honored by their country with postage stamps in their likenesses, the Daily Telegraph reports. The actors have been named Australia Post’s 2009 Australian Legends, and each will have two stamps. “I’m going to be licked by millions of Australians and I can’t wait,” said Blanchett.
