Blanchett Wants To Improve Golf Handicap

CATE BLANCHETT took up golf in preparation for her role as KATHARINE HEPBURN in THE AVIATOR - in a bid to resemble the movie legend's athletic physique.

The Australian actress, 35, is keen to improve her golfing handicap and use the set of clubs given to her by husband ANDREW UPTON, after practicing the sport during the making of the HOWARD HUGHES biopic.

She says, "I got very physical playing Hepburn because she was such an athlete.

"I took up tennis again and started playing golf.

"My husband even bought me a set of clubs last Christmas - although they haven't been used since. Well, it was winter and then I got pregnant.

"Andrew and I will have to join a golf club when we get back to England."
