Cate Blanchett – Husband, Children & Net Worth

Cate Blanchett’s incredible acting skills have been a fierce and long term thing. Fortunately, her efforts haven’t gone without proper recognition as she has prestigious accolades like the Academy Award and the Golden Globe to her name. Not long past, she was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Lead Actress in a Play; this was for her role in The Present. From her age to her husband, net worth, and body stats, you will find answers to most of the questions you’ve been asking about Cate Blanchett below.

How Old Is Cate?

Blanchett was born on 14 May 1969 to an Australian mother, June Blanchett, and an American father, Robert DeWitt Blanchett. She had her early education in Melbourne at Ivanhoe East Primary School. Later, she joined Ivanhoe Girls’ Grammar School.  After high school, she enrolled at ladies’ College before furthering at the University of Melbourne.

Cate Blanchett abandoned her economics and fine arts studies after her first year to travel abroad. Regardless, she didn’t forget how significant education is to the career she desired. She got back to Australia to pursue her acting career at the National Institute of Dramatic Art (NIDA). In 1992, she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and immediately kicked off her acting career professionally.

Some of her notable roles include playing Elizabeth I in the 1998 film Elizabeth, Sheba Hart in the 2006 film Notes on a Scandal, and Katherine Hepburn in Aviator. She also pulled off a superb performance in Blue Jasmine and I am Not There. So far, she has six Oscar nominations out of which she won two.

Her Net Worth

Thanks to her roles in huge projects, Cate Blanchett has been one of the big earners in the movie industry. She was named among the top earners in 2009 and more recently (in 2017), she was ranked as the 8th highest-earning star. In the said year, she pocketed over $12 million. With that in mind, the net worth of the two-time Oscar-winning actress is estimated at $45 million

Cate Blanchett’s Husband, Children, and Family

Blanchett has two siblings, an older brother Bob and a younger sister Genevieve. The family has English, Sottish and remote French ancestry. All three siblings grew up in a middle-class home – thanks to their mother who had a successful career in property development while also teaching in a school. Equally, their dad did well financially having worked for the United States Navy as a Chief Petty Officer and later as an advertising executive.

The couple met in an unpredictable way when Robert’s ship developed a fault in Melbourne. While things went well for the family, Blanchett’s life took a different turn at age 10 when her dad passed due to a heart attack, placing the childcare duties on the shoulders of June.

More than two decades ago in December, Blanchett married the love of her life, an Australian playwright and screenwriter, Andrew Upton. The wedding was held at the National Park Blue Mountains in New South Wales. Their romance is one of the many instances of celebrities who fell in love on screen as they met in 1996 on a set of a TV show.

Despite their active presence in the film industry then, the couple couldn’t afford to pay a photographer at the time of their wedding. Apparently, this couldn’t stop them from staying true to their marriage vows. Their resolve to stick to each other since their union in 1997 has seen the family grow not just in number but also financially.

Their first son Dashiell John Upton was born in 2001 while the second named Roman Robert Upton was born in 2004. The youngest of them was born in 2008 and his name is Ignatius Martin Upton. The Oscar-winning star and her husband decided to opt for adoption after their first child but it was only in 2015 that they actualized the dream.

The talented star from Australia is undeniably beautiful. She has a unique natural blonde and blue eyes. Apart from those, she is 5 feet 8 inches which makes her a tall woman. She weighs 130 lb and her body measures 34-24-35 inches.
