Cate Blanchett: Ngapartji, Ngapartji

Mom-to-be Cate Blanchett positively glows alongside director husband Andrew Upton at the opening night of Ngapartji Ngapartji at the Belvoir St Theatre during the 2008 Sydney Festival on Friday in Sydney, Australia.

Ngapartji ngapartji is a main stage theatre production that explores themes of dispossession and displacement from country, home and family. The phrase translates as ‘I give you something, you give me something,’ a concept of reciprocity which governs relationships in Pitjantjatjara society and culture.

(Pitjantjatjara is a central desert language spoken by around 2,500 people across the north-western parts of South Australia and adjacent areas of W.A and N.T. Members of the Pitjantjatjara community will teach us their language – which is one of the world’s oldest – through online stories, songs, animations and short films.)

Cate the Great is due in April.

    Very pretty. What I love about these photos is how normal they are. If it was Nicole Kidman she would have hired someone to do her hair and makeup and worked out before and been styled all because she’d suspect her picture was being taken.

    Cate looks like a normal person who did her own hair and got dressed prettily but appropriately for the event which is just a play opening. I love that Cate seems more concerned with acting/her craft than her appearance. NK talks about how she doesn’t care but every picture shows how much she does. The relentless working out, lip enhancement etc.
    What a relief to see a celebrity who is acknowledges they are just a person. It’s like Jamie Pressly and the way she willingly talks about how much difficult work it was to get her figure back after her baby, instead of acting all falsely modest and as if it just happened magically.

    #2 & #3 – idiots! i hope many people will share my opinion, that writing “first”, “second”, “third”, etc. is infinitely stupid, and very annoying to others!!!

  • lalaine

    She looks awesome, but her attitude doesn’t please me.
    And she needs to work on her acting. She always seems a bit too rehearsed in every scenes she makes.

  • Jess

    Love her … lovely person and so talented

  • Laura

    She just glows. Life really agrees with her now.

He is the former singer of Midnight Oil and has been an activist for the environment and indigenous people for years.In the most recent Aussie elections, he was appointed Minister of Environment.
