l-o-t-r: "Well, Cate Blanchett. Her husband doesn’t know but she and I are going to get married quite soon. Which will surprise a lot of people. But you see, we only met at a party [during the making of ‘The Lord of the Rings’]... Here, we had a whole week, or maybe two. That was a thrill because she’s a great screen actor and a very congenial person, for me... So there wasn’t a moment that we didn’t have stuff to talk about.” Ian McKellen on reuniting w/ Cate Blanchett in The Hobbit
