Cate Blanchett scarred by father’s death. She is an Australian actress known mostly for her role in Elizabeth I of England. Well she had bad thoughts that her husband would pass away before his fortieth birthday.
The reason for this, is because she lost her own father at a young age of a heart attack. Now she is paranoid that she always thinks that her Andrew Upton, to whom she shares sons eleven year old Dasheilla and five year old Ignatius – would be dealt the same fate.
Cate recalled to The Observer magazine:
“I lost my father young. The earliest memory I have is seeing him in bed when I was 18 months old – I later learned he was recuperating from his first heart attack at 32. He died when he was 40 [of a heart attack], but I don’t think I really quantified the consequences for me until much later, when my husband reached 40.
“I was euphoric at his birthday party, like a weight had been lifted. And I thought, ‘Now, there’s the detritus’.”
