The magazine travelled to Sydney to sit down with Blanchett who is currently starring in her husband, Andrew Upton's adaptation of Chekhov's The Present at the Sydney Theatre Company. The theatrical organisation is close to her heart, as it offered her her first acting break, and was the lure back to her native Australia in 2008, when her and Upton took over the running of the company. "We do everything together," she comments, of the work, and undoubtedly all aspects of the couple's life. 

She also takes the opportunity to shun the Hollywood scene. She exclaims that she does not like the phrase 'Hollywood actress.' "That's what they say about you when they want to insult you," she remarks.
