Cate Blanchett's kids 'disinterested' in her fame

·1-min read


Cate Blanchett's children are totally "disinterested" in her fame.
But the 'Lord of the Rings' actress admitted her kids - Dashiell, 20, Roman, 18, Ignatius, 14, and Edith, seven, who she shares with husband her Andrew Upton - feel indifferent about her work, which also includes movies 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' and 'Ocean's 8', "in the best possible, healthiest way."
She said: "They have no idea, no idea.
"I told them, 'Oh I’m going to New York for 36 hours. I’ll be back on Wednesday…’
"One of them is getting an award at school, and they went, 'Oh, OK, have a good time.' "
Cate was presented with Chaplin Award earlier this week - where she was praised at the Gala for being an "internationally acclaimed actor, producer, artistic director, humanitarian, and dedicated member of the arts community" - and the star admitted it was "a deep and profound honour".
Speaking to the New York Post's Page Six column at the Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall in New York City - where she received the accolade, which was named after legendary comic actor Charlie Chaplin - she added: "Every time someone wins an Oscar, there are five or six, maybe 15 other people who were equally deserving. It just happens to be your timing.
“But, you know, not being from this filmmaking culture, and being recognised by this filmmaking culture tonight at the Chaplin Awards - such an international set of previous recipients – it’s such a deep and profound honour."
Previous recipients of the Chaplin Award include Dame Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, and Tom Hanks, among others.
Charlie himself received the first-ever Chaplin Award in 1972, when he returned to the US from exile to accept the commendation.
