The pair looked engrossed in conversation as they made their way to the departures lounge. 

This is not the first time the pair have spent time together.  

Cate was one of several high-profile mourners who celebrated the life of Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam at Sydney’s Town Hall back in 2014, and was seen chatting to Ms Wong at the service.

She also announced an initiative to save water and energy at the Sydney Theatre Company back in 2019 alongside Ms Wong, Peter Garrett and her husband Andrew Upton.

She recently said the themes of her new drama galvanized its cast and crew, making the film shoot ‘the most stimulating’ she had ever been on.

In the feature she plays Lydia Tár, the world-renowned gay conductor of a Berlin orchestra whose high-flying career is tainted by an abuse scandal.

Cate credited the film’s writer and director Todd Field for drawing the best out of his cast with often unscripted, spur-of-the-moment ideas.

‘I felt like we were standing on the edge of a cliff every day saying, “This may not work, let’s give this a try,” which was really exciting to make,’ she told Reuters. 

The Don’t Look Up star and her husband, Andrew Upton, live in England and have four children together: Dashiell, 20, Roman, 18, Ignatius, 14 and Edith, seven.
