Cate Blanchett's husband Andrew Upton doesn't mind the attention that comes with being married to an Oscar winner. 'I quite enjoy it, actually,' he says.
Although the Australian writer-director, 42, has been cropped out of his share of photos when posing with the Elizabeth actress, he has maintained a realistic outlook on his wife's A-list status.
"I'm never followed but Cate is. Her public identity is very associated with her work, which I think is good, right and proper because she's bloody good at it. When her work is coming into focus, people want to see a photo of her carrying shopping bags," Upton tells Britian's Independent newspaper. "I can understand it - people are interested and I'm glad they're interested otherwise they wouldn't come to see it."
