Cate Blanchett on meeting her husband; excerpted from this Sunday's T magazine: "Don’t you think like most things, like comedy, like sex, like anything, it’s about timing? I think we collided with each other at what turned out to be the perfect time. We knew each other socially and we didn’t get on and we played poker one night and I don’t know how we ended up kissing but we did and he asked me to marry him about three weeks later and we got together in the same spirit... Maybe I’ve got a lack of consequence. A healthy lack of consequence." [T]
