BANG! NEWS – Cate Blanchett’s son’s friends were “disgusted and disappointed” to realise she wasn’t Kate Upton.
The Mrs America actress – who has Dashiel, 18, Roman, 16, Ignatius, 12, and five-year-old Edith with husband Andrew Upton – was the subject of mistaken identity because of her marital surname when her boys went to secondary school because their fellow pupils were convinced she was the swimsuit model.
She told OK! magazine, “A fun thing happened when my boys started at their all boys’ school. Their surname is Upton so I’m down on the register as Cate Upton.
“Now, there’s another Kate Upton who is a rather attractive young swimsuit model and the boys at my son’s school asked, ‘Wait… is your mum Kate Upton?’ They said, ‘Yeah’.
“And so, when I showed up on the first day to pick them up, I could see the utter disappointment on those 12-year-old boys’ faces. I thought, ‘What have I done?’
“The disgust and disappointment was incredibly real! They were so looking forward to those play dates.”
