Cate Blanchett and Andrew Upton
Andrew Upton, Cate Blanchett’s husband of 23 years, is a theater director, playwright and screenwriter, but despite his talent, he has managed to stay in his wife’s shadow, in the best possible way, and he’s the one who supports her as she progressed in her impressive Hollywood career, never resenting her success. The two-times Academy Award winner, 50, and her husband, 54, met back in 1997, and got engaged after three weeks of dating.
Although they have been happily married for over two decades, their relationship didn’t take off smoothly. The two have known each other through mutual friends for seventeen years before their romance began, and at the time, they weren’t fond of each other, to say the least. Even though some would say they rushed into this marriage, the couple is still going strong, now with four kids, and they have no regrets whatsoever. Despite their busy schedules, they manage to see each other and spend time together.
