Workaholic Cate Welcomes Pregnant Pause From Films

Cate Blanchett, looking radiant at the Evening Standard’s Leicester Square premiere of Bandits – one of the five new films in which she stars – says her pregnancy has been a godsend. “I have about six weeks to go until the baby is due. These last weeks have proved fantastic for me,a welcome break from work,” she said last night. A whirlwind year has seen her film not only Bandits but also the Lord of the Rings, The Shipping News, Charlotte Gray and Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Heaven. The 32 year old, married to screenwriter Andrew Upton, said: “It has been exhausting. Andrew and I tried to travel together as much as possible, but we knew it was going to be a problem. Going into it, we said, ‘This will be month on, month off’.”
