Cate Blanchett, one of the stars of George Clooney’s Monuments Men, which opens this weekend, canceled her promotional morning show appearances. The Oscar-winner had been scheduled to appear on both Good Morning America and Live! With Kelly and Michael on Wednesday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blanchett’s rep said the interviews were canceled “to allow Cate the time and privacy to grieve for the loss of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman.”
Blanchett starred with Hoffman in 1999′s The Talented Mr. Ripley. She and her husband Andrew Upton remained close to Hoffman throughout the years.
