Cate Blanchett loves working alongside her writer husband ANDREW UPTON at the Sydney Theatre Company (STC) - because she gets to take credit for her partner's hard work.
The couple was appointed co-artistic directors in 2008, and after transforming the fortunes of the Australian company, they have been signed to remain in control until 2013.
And Blanchett, who has just finished an acclaimed run in an STC production of A Streetcar Named Desire, insists working with Upton isn't hard - because she gets to share her husband's success
She tells Britain's Style magazine, "It's great - he has the big ideas and I take the credit. A lot of people look at us in horror, but it seems to work. We keep each other honest. And he makes me laugh. At the theatre, with a lot of of plays and educational projects on the go at one, it can get quite hairy, so it's important to laugh."
