Cate Blanchett is a Kung Fu Mommy

Cate Blanchett is a Kung Fu Mommy

Cate Blanchett gets her caffeine fix at her Double Bay local cafe in Sydney, Australia early Wednesday morning.

On Monday, the 38-year-old Aussie actress (in some very colorful leggings) and her director husband Andrew Upton took their two oldest sons Dashiell John, 6, and Roman Robert, 4, to the Australian premiere of the animated flick, Kung Fu Panda, in Sydney. Their youngest son, Ignatius Martin, must have napped this one out! He turns two months on Friday.

Kung Fu Panda is currently in U.S. theaters now but doesn’t open in Australia until Thursday, June 26.

    She is soooooo pretty. Soo pretty. Kids are cute too.

  • Cecilia

    Why is this thread posted to PREGNANT CELEBRITIES????? She is not pregnant anymore.

  • original jpf

    Love her so much, and I love she and her husbands take on family which is, “they do not go anywhere without the whole clan going too.” She said that they tried it once and they said no more. Love it.


  • emma lee

    Cute family. Absolutely love Cate. She is so talented and such a low profile, humble person.

  • amle

    Kate is looking haggard and old without all her hollywood hair, makeup, and clothes.

  • Helena

    She hardly looks haggard. She looks her age, there’s a difference.

  • Ingrid

    I like her, but it must be said: What on earth is she wearing at the premiere?!

  • ivone

    what she is wearing on the Kung Fu premiere?gosh it’s horrible!

  • claire

    I don’t know how can people consider her a fashion icon. She always dresses stange and ackward clothes, i don’t think at all she is fashion!

  • fendi fan

    she was never beautiful, but witough make up, she looks terrible, much older than Julianne Moore or Julia Roberts who are really older than her!

  • sunnykidstyle

    I hadn’t seen photo’s of her sons before, but I have to say, her kids are really cute. And Cate is such a talented actress, really amazing. She looks a bit fierce in the first photo, but she was probably just annoyed by th paparazzi, or in a hurry, because she usually looks really pretty on every other picture I see of her. Wishing her and her family all the best!

    Oh, and by the way, if you have a second to spare, please visit my new blog about stylish design for kids and feel free to give me some feedback. I’d really appreciate it :):)

  • Helena

    To be honest, she looked great at Cannes at both of premieres she went to, but yeah, she has her ‘odd’ moments.

  • Mike

    SHE IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • emma lee

    Wow, harsh crowd. Just when you see an actress looking normal with no botox signs, no collagen, and nothing augmented, she is criticized for looking “haggard”. She probably is feeling haggard, too. Personally, I think she looks beautiful. She just gave birth less than 2 months ago and she has 2 older, active children who need her attention.

    We should only care about how she looks in front of the camera when she is “at work”. She is free to be herself off camera while running around her hometown with her family. she should not have to be “on” at all times for our viewing pleasure.

  • rae

    She is so beautiful. She has incredible skin. Her kids are really adorable too. Lucky they look like their mother.

    Cate has some kooky style moments but I love it. She’s unique and she has the confidence to pull off anything. She wears crazy patterned leggings like I wear jeans. It’s interesting too that her boys are dressed very normally and very similar to their father. She seems to keep her crazy fashion to herself.

  • Sandra

    emma lee, thank you for your comment.

  • collin

    I know she is a good actress, but she is ugly guys! We can’t confuse things. Not everyone can be beautiful, what’s the problem??’i prefer intelegent people than beautiful!

  • alex

    her kids are so cute!something i was not expecting because she and her husband are not beautiful.
    I wonder why she gave such an ugly name to her son. IGNATIUS???please!

  • betty

    her style is so odd! why she doesn’t wear “normal” clothes???

  • sandy B.

    My God, this lady needs a stylish. The casual style is horrible, and i will not even comment what she is wearing at the premiere!

  • Tim

    What so intelligent about saying someone is ugly even it that is what you think?
    You may want to look up the word “intelligent” before you utilize it, that would be intelligent.

  • JR = nobody’s sweetheart

    She is sooooooooooooooo gorgeous! Love the Uptons!

  • Cecilia

    Yes Gorgeous!!

  • groundcontrol

    Wow, some people are harsh. This isn’t a red carpet event for her. She’s just taking the kids to a movie. It’s almost winter there. For all you know the kids picked out her tights. Parents do that sometimes, you know, wear not such great things to please their kids. Life has lots of explanations which you may not be privy to. That’s why only fools judge others.

    Cate and Angie have been friends for many years so I’m sure she wanted to support her friend as well as let her kids see a great family movie.

    Cate’s great – as they say.

  • Ha!

    I love it; when a 40 year old woman doesn’t look 20 (GOD FORBID) she’s haggard? Cate Blanchett is a new mom, give her a break. Besides, she’s always lovely. Her boys are adorable!!

  • Marta

    she’s wonderful

  • myself

    MARRY ME!!! <3 <3

    I love you- a real woman, not a plastic doll

    fendi fan @ 06/11/2008 at 12:04 pm she was never beautiful, but witough make up, she looks terrible, much older than Julianne Moore or Julia Roberts who are really older than her!
    Oh really? Cate Blanchett just happens to be an intelligent woman with class and sophistication beyond belife.I have always found her wit, fashion sense, and class beautiful and more engaging than Julia Roberts!

  • Zoe

    Does anyone know what brand of shoes she is wearing in the casual photos? I like them :)

  • remember da truth

    LOVE your post! Thanks for saying that!

  • Candy

    Excellent comment emma lee!! I totally agree. Some people here have a weird sense in what they consider “ugly”. I’m sorry, but Ms. Blanchett is one of the most beautiful, intelligent, talented and sophisticated actresses ever! Sure, she has a quirky casual style, I love her for it! She’s never boring that’s for sure.

    And, yes, she is very much a style and fashion icon whether you like it or not. Have you not seen her at the Oscars? at the Cannes premiere? at the Good German premiere?!! Good God, this woman definitely knows how to dress to impress when it counts. She’s allowed to wear whatever zany clothes she wants imo when she’s out and about with the family. She has two very beautiful & cute little boys!

  • bumblebeej

    Double Bay isn’t her ‘local’. She lives at Hunters Hill and works at Millers Point . Neither of which are in the Eastern Suburbs, as Double Bay is.

  • zoe

    i love this woman. she’s an incredible actress and is very down to earth. she never gets herself into any mess and is always very elegant and classy. i admit that i didnt like both of these outfits but cate always look effortlessly flawless on the red carpet. she never gets it wrong. and her kids are so adorable!
