Cate Blanchett Gets Asked About Animals

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

CATE Blanchett is the go-to gal when it comes to animals — and she’s not sure why.

The actress — who has sons Dashiell, 11, Roman, eight, and four-year-old Ignatius with husband Andrew Upton — has revaled her family and friends rely on her to help them with their issues.

“I never really want to talk about anything. But lately I find people are always coming to me for advice. Lately people have been coming to me about animals,” she said.

“We recently got a puppy and a kitten. The kitten’s a Tonkinese, a sort of cross between a Siamese and Burmese. The boys have called him Warwick.

“But I tend not to dole out advice left, right and center. I find in the end that people know the answer, you know? Sometimes people just have to talk things out, so that they can come to the conclusions themselves.

“[I'm asked about] relationships too, that seems to be a theme these days. Maybe it’s because I’ve been married so long. 16, 17 years … something like that.
