Recently, the husband of the famous actress Cate Blanchett has been spotted being very close to another actress, Harriet Dyer, after they spent a late night out last Wednesday in Sydney. After they appeared at a local bar, the director Andrew Upton, aged 50, was seen draping an arm across the shoulders of the 27-year-old actress, pulling her closer while they were walking down the street.
The two friends have worked in the past together with the Sydney Theatre Company, and they looked quite affectionate while they were waiting on the sidewalk. The director was still clutching a glass of what seemed to be alcohol, while the young actress had a hand pressed against his chest. They both seemed to be in high spirits after going out, and they were quite inseparable while they mingled with the other patrons.
From the outside, it seems that they talked a lot and they were seldom apart when they joined the locals who were playing a game a pool there. Harriet is famous for the role of Patty Saunders she had in Love Child, an Australian drama. She supported herself against a set of stair banisters, while Andrew was taking a shot.
They were seen at one point as the actress reached out and grabbed his arm in a playful manner, while he was waiting for his turn at the pool game. Eventually, they left the bar together, remaining on the sidewalk for a while until Andrew hailed a cab that was passing by. They both looked quite bemused when seeing onlookers, after which they said goodbye went separate ways.
However, Andrew confirmed that their relationship is purely platonic, explaining that she’s a good friend of his and that they have been friends for years. According to an insider, they even held hands at some point, being quite affectionate.
