Cate Blanchett is in the June issue of W looking as gorgeous as ever!
Inside the mag, the boob squishing cover star dishes on her personal life with her hubby.
Here are some highlights from the interview:
On her inaccurate public perception:
"I’m so misunderstood! I’m not focused on what other people think of me. Some people get you and some people don’t, and to spend your life trying to make people understand how deep and complex and varied you are—I think that way lies madness."
On her husband’s influence:
"My husband keeps me really honest. I remember him saying to me after I made Elizabeth, ‘Sweetheart, you’ve probably got about about five years.’ He was preparing me for the time when the work dries up, as it invariably does."
Husband and playwright Andrew Upton, on his wife as a coworker:
"She challenges, but she’s not aggressive. I can tend to be a bit scattergun. She’s quite practical in the end, so I often just fire off, and she’ll sort of pick up the pieces or choose the best bits. She would be the first and pretty much only person I would seriously seek counsel from. We’re fairly brutal with each other."
On working with her husband:
"We’re really open. I have friends—she’s an actor/writer married to a director—and she was horrified when we said we were going to work together. She said they don’t talk about work because they don’t want to venture into the territory of being criticized by you partner. But I know what to do with the criticism."
Sounds like they have a great relationship. Other couples should take notes!
