While blonde beauties are often stereotyped as "dumb," no one can say the same about Cate Blanchett.

The Australian actress has not only survived in Hollywood for decades, but she has also become a leading lady with many awards and accolades under her belt.

Her success did not follow because she was fame-hungry; it came because of a determination to outdo her flair. The artist of 5 feet 8 inches (1.72m) had earlier worked in theatre for an enduring period and even bagged Helpmann Award for the Best Female Actor in a Play, four times.

Her dedication to acting over the years proved the ancient saying true, "People who shine from within, don't seek the spotlight."

However, the first impressions went entirely wrong for the couple when they first met on a movie set. Andrew thought Cate was aloof, and she thought he was arrogant. As luck had them, they got to know each other better at a party over a poker game and hit it off right away.

The duo got to know each other for only about three weeks, after which they got married in 1997.

The pair went on to have four kids together, including three boys and an adopted girl. Their eldest son, Dashiell John Upton is now 17 and their second child Roman is 15 years old. Younger to the two boys are their son Ignatius Martin and daughter Edith Vivian.
