If she shows up somewhere, you post. It’s law.

This is Cate Blanchett tonight at the opening of Osage County at the Sydney Theatre. She of course is the Co-Artistic Director of the Sydney Theatre Company with her husband Andrew Upton, a post she has just renewed. I mean...what else would she wear?

You also take Cate when you can because for the next while she won’t be around much outside home. Since The Hobbit drama doesn’t seem to be close to resolution and she doesn’t have anything due in theatres until Spring 2011 at the earliest, Cate is staying away from the Hollywood f-ckery, as she does, focusing instead on the arts in Australia, allowing us to miss her. I do.
