Like many Australians, the Blanchett family lives with their three children. John Blanchett’s mother teaches at the school, and father Robert Blanchett runs a small business.

Kate is an extraordinary child: she dances in the streets or conducts an orchestra of her peers whom she persuades to hit oil drums. Mischievous and does not care. Her father affectionately described her as “incredibly stubborn”. She still asks her parents to tell her the romantic story of how they met: The ship on which Cate’s father Robert Blanchett sailed to Antarctica was forced to call in the port of Melbourne due to failure. Forced stop. The US Navy officer went ashore to the jazz club where he met the Australian in June. fall in love. He wrote her letters for three years, after which he left the sea and his homeland, moved to Australia and took up the real estate business. They got married. The poet was cut short by his early death. For ten-year-old Kate, the world collapsed. She had to grow up fast.

Youth crisis, modeling career and the first role of a future star

After her father’s funeral, she said to her mother: “I will help you, I will earn money as a nanny or a saleswoman at a vegetable seller.” She is too young to keep her promise, but too stubborn to not keep it. Adds years to himself and gets unauthorized part-time jobs for just a few dollars. He is going through a youth crisis: he shaves his head, listens to psychedelic music, wears slutty black clothes. But her extraordinary beauty is still visible. Someone from a modeling agency noticed her and invited her to a photo test. In high school, Kate gets some extra cash on the runway, but she’s thinking about archeology. Maybe working in a museum is an idea?

Next to the Blanchett family lived a married couple: the wife waited for her husband every day in front of the factory. They came home with their arm, with a bouquet of flowers. Kate told her mother that she was envious of her neighbour. June gave her the situation: “Not worth it! It’s the love of the show. Everyone knows he hits her and cheats on her.

The mother’s words will set her tone for men: “I want a partner, a lover, a friend,” she says in interviews, while still single, “a man for life, with whom I will feel safe and comfortable.” Hang the crossbar high.
