Cate Blanchett's retirement plans

But when interviewee and The Project panellist, Hamish McDonald, pushed Blanchett on this statement, she didn’t try to retract, “really?”, he asked.

“I think it’s time to stop,” Cate declared.

During the interview, Blanchett, who was born in Melbourne, also admitted she had been “profoundly homesick over the last four years”, after being based in Los Angeles from 2015 alongside theatre director husband Andrew Upton and their four children.

Prior to this they called Sydney home for over five years when the couple were the artistic directors of the Sydney Theatre Company.
