Cate Blanchett oozes casual cool in cargo pants and blazer at JFK airport… after being honored

Regarded as one of the finest actresses of her generation, Cate Blanchett is known for her gripping and versatile work across independent films, blockbusters and the theater stage.

Along the way she has been nominated for seven Academy Awards, seven BAFTAs and 11 Golden Globes, while starring in a number of critically and commercially successful films.

But yet, through it all, Blanchett’s four children, whom she shares with husband Andrew Upton, have remained totally ‘disinterested’ in the fame that can shroud her job as a global movie star.

On the go: Cate Blanchett, 52, was spotted at New York's at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Wednesday, two days after being honored with a prestigious Chaplin Award

The Australian actress admitted her children – Dashiell, 20, Roman, 18, Ignatius, 14, and Edith, seven, feel indifferent about her work ‘in the best possible, healthiest way.’

‘They have no idea, no idea,’ she told Page Sixwhich happened to be on the same day she was honored with the prestigious Chaplin Award at the Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall on Monday.

‘I told them, “Oh I’m going to New York for 36 hours. I’ll be back on Wednesday…” One of them is getting an award at school, and they went, “Oh, OK, have a good time .”‘

Always humble about her work, Blanchett maintained there were a number of people who were deserving of the Chaplin Award, which was named after legendary comic actor Charlie Chaplin

‘Every time someone wins an Oscar, there are five or six, maybe 15 other people who were equally serving. It just happens to be your timing,’ the Blue Jasmine star said.

‘But, you know, not being from this filmmaking culture, and being recognized by this filmmaking culture tonight at the Chaplin Awards – such an international set of previous recipients – it’s such a deep and profound honor.’

A while she would be whisked to her seat for the 47th Chaplin Award Gala to a resounding applause earlier this week, her kids were at home with ‘no idea’ as to why she was getting such a prestigious honor. At least that’s how Blanchett described her less than enthusiastic interest in her stardom.

On Tuesday, the day after the gala event, Blanchett was spotted at John F. Kennedy International Airport, in Queens, New York, which is the busiest of the six airports in the New York airport system.

The two-time Oscar-winning actress was the picture of casual and stylish dressed in black Louis Vuitton cargo pants with a black pinstripe blazer over a matching Givenchy concert t-shirt.

She also wore a pair of black heeled boots as she carried a Louis Vuitton bag full of her essentials.

The acclaimed actress also had stylish sunglasses, which at times she used to help keep her blonde tresses back behind her ears by having them on the top of her head.

Falling just above her shoulders with a part on the left, Blanchett’s locks were styled similar to a bob cut, only with her hair whisked to the side with that part.

Out of her seven Oscars nominations – four for Best Actress and three for Best Supporting Actress – Blanchett has won one in each category: The Aviator in 2005 and Blue Jasmine in 2014.

Her three BAFTA wins were for Elizabeth in 1999, as well as for The Aviator and Blue Jasmine.

Blanchett and Upton, 56, are the co-founders of the film production company, Dirty Films, under which Upton has served as a producer for the Australian film Little Fish (2005).

Upton is best known for adapting the works of Maxim Gorky, Anton Chekhov and Henrik Ibsen, among others, for London’s Royal National Theater and the Sydney Theater Company, and for writing the original play Riflemind (2007), directed by the late Philip Seymour Hoffman for the London production.
