VERONICA GUERIN star Cate Blanchett is so determined to lead a quiet life she has only just bought herself a mobile phone - but she never answers it.

The reclusive actress was bullied into buying a telephone so her agent could get hold of her whenever he liked - but she's still a reluctant mobile user.

Cate says, "My agent insisted that I get one. But I never answer it. I suppose I should keep it switched off, but it has such a pretty ring."
