Cate Blanchett has won two Academy Awards, three Screen Actors Guild Awards and three Golden Globes. She’s been made an honorary Doctor of Letters, awarded the Centenary Medal for Service to Australian Society, and appointed Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government.

In short, she is a big. fucking. deal.

So when Jonathan Hyla, host of Australia’s The Project, spoke with Cate about her role as the wicked stepmother in Cinderella, she let him know what she thought of his interviewing skills.

After bumbling through some inane banter, Hyla tried to bring things back to the movie.

“How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash?” Hyla asked Blanchett, referencing a moment from the film. “I tried putting my girlfriend’s cat on a leash and it just never works for me.”

“That’s your question?” Blanchett responded. “That’s your fucking question?”


And that, readers, is why Cate Blanchett is a goddess: She stays in character months after the movie is already in theaters!
