The last time the couple were seen in public as a duo was back in August 2023 when they were spotted on holiday in Ibiza. Now, news has also surfaced that the couple have put their Melbourne home up for auction, per British media.

The Tár actress, 54, has always kept her private life private, so it’s unlikely any announcements will be forthcoming. However, netizens are already comparing her situation to that of Meryl Streep, who only revealed in October 2023 that she and her husband Don Gummer had been separated for six years.

According to People, the couple met for the first time while Blanchett was acting in a Chekhov play. However, it wasn’t love at first sight because they didn’t like each other initially. “He thought I was aloof and I thought he was arrogant,” she told Vanity Fair in 1999. “And it just shows how wrong you can be. But once he kissed me, that was that.”

They tied the knot in 1997. Blanchett would later reveal to Ellen DeGeneres that her future hubby proposed to her just three weeks after they’d started dating.
