Cate Blanchett: kids and acting are my fitness routine
Unlike some of her Hollywood counterparts, Cate Blanchett insists she doesn’t spend hours in the gym.
The mother of three told Parade magazine recently: “I don’t really exercise that much although I wish I did. Chasing the kids is my fitness routine.”
But her active movie roles also help - like fighting Shia LaBeouf with a “pretty mean sword” in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull: “The best weight loss program I ever had was playing playing Elizabeth the Queen [in Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
“The costumes were very heavy, the hours were long and you’re under a lot of pressure. I dropped more than a few pounds both times I played her.”
