whatmakesyoulove asked:

yes, why cate and andrew are so perfect?

greatcateblanchett:

Because they love each other, they’re so close together. Cate is very proud of her marriage. From an interview it was said that Cate described Andrew “a man that can reach between the earth and the stars.” I can say also that what makes them perfect is that they’re very private not like those people who shows they have problems, etc. and Cate is always happy whenever she talks of Andrew and describes him in a very lovely way in every magazine interview. They share the same email and they always hold hands. The way they look at each other is just so adorable to look at. And they’re love story is so unique and beautiful.

"Don’t you think like most things, like comedy, like sex, like anything, it’s about timing? I think [my husband and I] collided with each other at what turned out to be the perfect time. We knew each other socially and we didn’t get on and we played poker one night and I don’t know how we ended up kissing but we did and he asked me to marry him about three weeks later and we got together in the same spirit… . Maybe I’ve got a lack of consequence, a healthy lack of consequence."

Lesley Stahl: How did you meet? How did the sparks start?

Andrew Upton: The sparks started slowly, I think, personally.

Cate Blanchett: We didn’t like each other.

Andrew Upton: We didn’t get on at all at first sight—

Lesley Stahl: Really?

Cate Blanchett: And then all of a sudden, we played poker one night and you were telling me about how you were in love with a friend of mine, and then we kissed.

Lesley Stahl: And, all of a sudden, you’re asking her to marry you, real fast as I understand it.

Andrew Upton: I think it was about 21 days.

Lesley Stahl: And you said yes right away? Three weeks?

Cate Blanchett: Yeah. You leap off at the same time. And I think it’s all about timing.

“I’d already met her socially because the theatre world is fairly small but then the relationship developed,” Andrew commented. However, their romance nearly never took off. “He thought I was aloof,” Cate later said, “and I thought he was arrogant. But once he kissed me, that was that. It just shows how wrong you can be. I was, and am, swept away
