Cate Blanchett Lives the Romantic Life

Cate Blanchett is on the cover of February’s Vanity Fair speaking about her latest movie, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and her real life romance with her husband, Andrew Upton.

After just a few weeks of dating, Andrew Upton proposed to Blanchett and her reasons for saying “yes” speak volumes about their love affair.

She tells Vanity Fair:

“I couldn’t not. We were in exactly the same place at exactly the same time. He turned to me after a few days and said, ‘Cate … ,’ and I thought, ‘Oh, god, he’s going to ask me to marry him – and I’m going to have to say yes!’ He didn’t, in fact; he asked me what I wanted for dinner or something like that. But I’d never had that thought before. I thought, This is extraordinary! I’ve never felt this before. What an adventure!”

What is even more romantic is how Andrew feels about Cate with regard to plastic surgery:

Very fortunate – especially in the land of Hollywood.


“Andrew said he’d divorce me if I did anything. When you’ve had children, your body changes; there’s history to it. I like the evolution of that history; I’m fortunate to be with somebody who likes the evolution of that history.”
